Michael Vaughan credited India for the character shown and said India have very strong bench strength with T Natarajan, Washington Sundar being handed debuts in injured players absence and performing excellently. India have managed to do well despite missing services of Virat Kohli, Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin to name a few.

Shardul Thakur got to his maiden Test half-century with a six finishing on 67 while Washington Sundar wasn’t far behind scoring 62 on debut as the duo negotiated short balls.

On the second day, India had bundled out Australia for 369 as Shardul Thakur, T Natarajan, and Washington Sundar scalped three wickets each. Australia’s No. 3 batsman Marnus Labuschagne had top-scored for Australia as he played a knock of 108 runs.
