Fans can watch the India vs. Australia cricket match on the second day and see if India can continue its hot start in some steamy conditions.
Despite falling in the first Test match last week, India came on strong at the end and has carried that momentum through to the first day of the second Test. As action started on Wednesday in a hot and humid Gabba, M Vijay carved out a century for the visiting Indian team to set them off well.
“Having fallen one run short of a hundred on the final day in Adelaide, Vijay found the right method on a far more steepling surface, leaving the ball well while also collecting runs right around the ground,” noted ESPNcricinfo. “He made the majority of his runs in the first and third sessions, waiting out an afternoon during which Josh Hazlewood showed his readiness for the baggy green cap handed to him by Glenn McGrath before play.”
The second day of play starts at 10 a.m. local time on Thursday (12 a.m. GMT) from Brisbane.
Fans who watch the India vs. Australia cricket match live online will get to see if India can get a boost from the return of captain MS Dhoni, who missed the first Test and the previous series against Sri Lanka due to injury.
It could take a lot more than the return of its captain to help India, noted Cricketnext. Australia has been flawless at Gabba, the report pointed out.
“While a fit-again Dhoni’s comeback is morale-boosting news for India, the bad one is that Australia haven’t lost a Test at Gabba for 26 years. Dhoni’s return, thus, could just be the inspiration team needed after a sorry 48-run defeat,” the report stated.
