Cricket: 1st Test. End of 2nd day's play.

Category: Misc.

India is struggling at 150/6 in reply to Australia's first innings score of 474.

Rahul Dravid bowled by Glenn McGrath for a duck. I have got to see that dismissal.

How come our batting line up failed.

Michael Clarke scored a century on debut and Adam Gilchrist captaining the side in the absence of Ricky Ponting, lead from the front by example and played a captain's knock of a run-a-ball 104.

Laxman was out for 31, Ganguly and Sehwag both were out under 50, Akash Chopra was trapped leg before and Yuvraj was caught behind.

Now we need a repeat of the batting heroics of the Kolkata Test of 2001 to save this test.

More later. I haven't seen the highlights.
