India vs Australia (IND vs AUS) 3rd Test Highlights: Day 2 of the Sydney Test ended with India 96 for two at stumps, trailing Australia by 242 runs on Friday.

Cheteshwar Pujara and skipper Ajinkya Rahane were batting 9 and 5 respectively at close of play.  India made a solid start with Rohit Sharma (26) and Shubman Gill (50) stitching a 70-run opening stand. Gill went on to score his maiden half-century.

Australia rode on Steve Smith’s gritty 131-run knock and half-centuries by debutant Will Pucovski (62) and Marnus Labuschagne (91) to come up with their strongest batting performance of the ongoing series.

On Day 1, the hosts looked destined for their biggest score of the series after a half-century from debutant opener Will Pucovski (62) helped them to 166/2. After the match was interrupted by rain, Labuschagne notched his ninth Test half-century to finish the day on 67 not out with Steve Smith unbeaten on 31 at the other end. For India, only Mohammed Siraj and Navdeep Saini managed to scalp a wicket.
