When the wicket was not giving any assistance to the bowlers even on the second day it was indeed a superlative spin bowling of spinner Nathan Lyon and that was worth watching. He floated the ball very well and made the batsmen dance to his tunes with an accurate spell of bowling in which he claimed five wickets. Credit should also go to Indian batsmen for handling top class bowling of the nagging off spin bowling with tact and put up a fighting score. He is capable of doing it in the past and he can be a force to reckon with in matches when the team look for moderate totals and not able to achieve monumental scores in their first innings. After Rahul exploits and throwing of wickets in haste, both Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane along with R. Ashwin stemmed the rot and played a cautious innings in the hope of revival and overhaul Australia’s total.
