Bangalore: Australia need to score 516 runs win the second Test after a day of Indian domination highlighted by Goutam Gambir's century. History must repeat itself for Australia to claim a Test victory in Mohali. No side has ever made 450+ in the fourth innings to win a Test. So, if Australia manages to win the Mohali Test, it will be a new world record. The fact that Australia has almost one and half day to chase down the target can turn out to be the most crucial.
