The second day in Bengaluru - began with ominous predictions that India's hopes of regaining the Border-Gavaskar Trophy would be dead unless they had launched a fightback by stumps.

Certainly, India's bowlers deserve credit for their persistence.

All day they maintained pressure on Australia's batsmen, and the pressure was particularly intense during a gripping morning session.

But by stumps, the cold reality was that Australia held a lead that was already useful, and which on the third morning may yet progress to become match-winning.

They went to stumps 48 runs in front, with the total on 237 for 6, with Matthew Wade on 25 and Mitchell Starc on 14.
