Australia 251 for 5 against India on 2nd day of Sydney Test

In Cricket, Australia were 251 for 5 wicket against India on Day 2 of third Test match at Sydney a short while ago. Ravinder Jadeja took the third wicket of Marnus Labuschagne who scored a half-century. The match was stopped for a brief period due to rain and wet outfield.

Earlier, Australia resumed their second day play from an overnight score of 166 for two. The hosts had won the toss and elected to bat first on the opening day.

Rohit Sharma is finally back for the Indian side replacing Mayank Agarwal in the opening slot. Umesh Yadav, who was ruled out of the Test series after getting injured in the Boxing Day Test, has been replaced by Navdeep Saini in the playing XI. This is the debut Test for Navdeep Saini.

The four-match series is currently levelled at 1-1, and if India manages to win this Test, the side will retain the Border Gavaskar Trophy even if Australia goes on to win the last Test at Brisbane.
