Watch: Ravichandran Ashwin Masterplan To Get Shaun Marsh Out

Ravichandran Ashwin gave India the perfect start after lunch on day two of the ongoing Test against Australia. The off-spinner castled Shaun Marsh soon after the break to leave Australia tottering at 59 for 3.

India needed a good start with the ball after managing a modest total in the first innings. The visitors recovered from a disastrous start to post a respectable 250. India’s top-order failed to get going on day one as Australia pacers wreaked havoc. In fact, the Indian batsmen should blame themselves as they ended up playing poor shots to throw away their wickets. At one stage, India were reeling at 41 for 4. At that stage even a score of 150 was looking like a distant dream.

/However, Cheteshwar Pujara held firm from one end and scored a stunning ton to guide India to a good total. The right-handed batsman scored 123 before being run out. On day two, India could not add a single run to their overnight score of 250 for 9 before Josh Hazlewood knocked out Mohammed Shami.

The onus was now on the bowlers to give India a good start and they have not disappointed so far. In the very first over, Ishant Sharma castled Aaron Finch for a duck to give the visitors the much-needed early breakthrough.  Debutant Marcus Harris and Usman Khawaja then steadied the ship for a while by adding 45 runs before Ravichandran Ashwin struck. The India spin spearhead dismissed Harris for 26 to bring his side back in the game. Khawaja and Marsh then made sure that Australia do not suffer any other setback before lunch.

However, the two could add just two runs to after lunch before Marsh played a poor shot to get himself out. Ashwin bowled a tossed up delivery well outside the off stump. A temped Marsh then went for the big drive but only managed to get an inside edge that trickled back onto the stumps.
