India have put in a cautious start against Australia on Day 2 of the ongoing third Test match, at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). Openers Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill have been setting up a steady partnership, with an aim to build some momentum.The hosts posted 338 runs (all out), courtesy of a century by Steve Smith. Smith slammed 131 runs off 226 deliveries, before falling to a run out manufactured by Ravindra Jadeja. The Indian all-rounder shone for the visitors and registered four wickets. Smith registered his first century of 2021, and moved on from 2020, a year where he didn’t register a single Test ton. Meanwhile, Marnus Labuschagne missed out on a century, scoring 91 runs from 196 balls. He was dismissed by Ravindra Jadeja. Meanwhile, Matthew Wade scored 13 runs and once again showed his weakness against spinners, falling to a Jadeja delivery. Cameron Green couldn’t really do much, and couldn’t really get going. Green was dismissed for a duck after facing 21 balls. Meanwhile, Tim Paine could only muster one run before losing his wicket. The tailenders were dismissed in quick succession by the visiting bowling department. Also, rain stopped play twice on Day 2. India will be hoping to put in a fight before the end of Day 2.
