Mohali: Rahul Dravid hit a well composed half century to keep the Indians in challenge, against Australia in the first session of 3rd day's play in Mohali.
He started off very positively yesterday and resumed with the same mindset today. Though he was little lucky, he opened up his account with a boundary off Bollinger.
Nightwatchman Ishant Sharma was the only man to fall in the session. He misjudged a straight ball of Bollinger and saw his off-stump knocked out.
Tendulkar replacing Sharma has looked in fine form as well hitting some well timed boundaries. The duo have put together 40 runs for the fourth wicket and look to stretch the partnership post lunch session.
India added 81 runs in the sessions play. India resumed the third day's play at 110/2.
Yesterday, Sehwag hit a dazzling half century to give a decent platform for the Indians before he was dismissed by Mitchell Johnson.
Australia in their first innings, had finished off with 428 with Watson scoring a century and rookie wicketkeeper batsman, Tim Paine, scoring 92 down the order.
