Rohit Sharma’s indiscreet shot selection pegged India back after rookie bowling attack restricted Australia to 369 on a rain-curtailed second day of the fourth Test on Saturday.
With heavy thundershowers preventing any play in the post tea session, India ended the day at 62 for two.

After the initial breakthrough, Washington and Shardul pounce on the opportunity as Green (47) and Cummins (2) are back in the hut. AUS are 8 down for 315. #AUSvIND

At stumps, India’s score read 62/2 and the visitors still trail by 307 runs with eight wickets in the bag. Cheteshwar Pujara (8) and Ajinkya Rahane (2) will need to start afresh on Sunday.
Earlier, the Indian bowlers toiled hard to dismiss Australia for 369 in their first innings.
