Highlights | IND: 321-7 (114) | IND VS AUS Day 2, 1st Test Cricket Score and Updates: Axar, Jadeja Push India's Lead to 144 After Rohit Sharma's Century
India Vs Australia Day 2, 1st Test LIVE Cricket Scorecard and Updates: Rohit Sharma’s side will face Pat Cummins-led Aussies in the first of four matches for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy beginning on Thursday (February 9).
Team India will look to continue their dominance over Australia when the two sides face off in the first game of the four-match Test series for the Border Gavaskar Trophy (BGT) at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) stadium in Nagpur which began on Thursday (February 9). Having bowled out Australia for 177 after being asked to bowl first by Pat Cummins, India and skipper Rohit Sharma will be eyeing a massive first innings lead as they trail by 100 runs heading into Day 2.
The Indian side has since then defeated the Aussies twice away from home and once in India. The series is doubly important for both sides as they look to confirm their position in the ICC World Test Championships (WTC) Final which will take place at the Oval in London from June 7 to 11 this year.
India will be buoyed by the return of stalwarts like skipper Rohit Sharma, former captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain KL Rahul – all of whom had decided to skip the three-match T20I series against the New Zealand. There are a couple of injury concerns with Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer both ruled out.
KS Bharat appears to be favourite to take the gloves for the first Test in Nagpur while Shubman Gill should be in line to replace Iyer for the game as well. The 22 yards in Nagpur for the Test match has been the topic of hot discussion in the build-up to this game, with the track likely to take spin early on.
Rohit Sharma will be happy with the availability of all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja – who will return to international cricket for the first time since last year’s Asia Cup. Ravichandran Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav are expected to be the other spinners in the attack.
Cummins will have his task cut out with all-rounder Cameron Green and pace bowlers Josh Hazlewood unavailable for the first.

LIVE IND vs AUS 1st Test Day 2 Score: Axar Patel says THIS after FIGHT BACK Fifty
"Have been doing well with the bat for the last one year. That confidence is coming in handy. My technique - I always knew it was good. I work on it when I get a break. Work with the coaching staff. They tell me that I have the ability, so I try to contribute. When you go in to bat you find some difficulty (on that pitch), but it gets easier after spending some time. The talk with Jadeja was to not lose focus. Till the time we bat tomorrow the pitch will play well, and when we get the chance to bowl - we'll find help (laughs)."

India vs Australia 1st Test: KL Rahul's Troubles
KL Rahul had another start. Another innings where he could have gone deep. But he threw it away. It has happened with him every now and then.

Whether it is the start of innings, or the end of a day in a Test match or when he is nearing a ton, he always gets a little anxious and eventually gets into two minds. The shot vs Todd Murphy today was the result of the same dichotomy. He really needs to deliver in his next innings. Feel Rahul would still get another Test if India win this one. Otherwise, Shubman Gill is waiting in the wings.
