IND vs AUS, 2nd Test: Hosts need 115 to win
Ravindra Jadeja claimed a brilliant seven-wicket haul as Australia were folded for 113 in their second innings of the ongoing second Test versus India. As the Aussies had a paltry one-run lead in the first innings, the home team requires 115 runs to cross the line and earn an unassailable 2-0 lead. Here we look at how Australia's second innings pan out.
Summary of Australian innings
Australia were 61/1 at stumps on the second day and looked firmly on command. However, they surrendered to Indian spinners in the morning session of Day 3. Travis Head (43), who batted with remarkable intent on the second day, could only score four to his overnight score. Marnus Labuschagne contributed with 35 runs. While Jadeja claimed a seven-fer, Ravichandran Ashwin got three wickets.
Second fifer in a row for Jadeja
Notably, this was Jadeja's second fifer of the series. He also completed his second 10-wicket-haul in a Test. Jadeja claimed his second seven-wicket haul in the format. In 2016, he claimed 7/48 against England in the Chennai Test. His only other 10-wicket match haul (10/154) also came in that very game. Jadeja owns 80 wickets in just 14 Tests against Australia at 17.23.
Three-fer for Ashwin
Ashwin, who claimed 4/60 in Australia's first innings, returned with 3/59 in his second outing. He now owns 14 wickets in the ongoing series. The off-spinner has raced to 463 scalps in 90 Tests at 27.46 (5W: 31, 10W: 7). Playing his 20th Test versus the Aussies, Ashwin has raced to 103 wickets at an average just below 30 (29.09).Share this timeline
