India and Australia fought it out at the second Test in Delhi at the Arun Jaitley Stadium where Australia won the toss and decided to bat first. The Kangaroos lost David Warner early but Usman Khawaja ground it out and played a wonderful innings of 81 off 125 balls with 12 fours and one six. Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne were out cheaply to Ravichandran Ashwin.

There was a heartwarming incident involving Mohammed Shami and a fan. He was spotted charging onto the field as he tried to get to Shami by evading security. But it was not to be as all his plans were thwarted by the security. The security guards in the stadium caught the boy and dragged him back to the stands. Shami watched the proceedings and then had a quick chat with the security personnel to go easy on the fan.

Australia were dismissed for 263 in their first innings at Delhi

Australia were cruising and were 84-0 at one stage when India came back into the game with three quick wickets. Khawaja and Peter Handscomb were the best batters for Australia. Handscomb played a well-orchestrated innings of an unbeaten 72 off 142 balls with nine fours. The best bowlers for India were Shami who picked up 4-60 in 14.4 overs.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja picked up 3-57 in his 21-over spell and 3-68 in his 21-over spell. The Indian bowlers put up a good show again as they were able to break key partnerships at crucial times and were able to pick wickets in clusters. India bowled in good areas and bowled in partnerships to keep Australia down to 263 in the first innings.

India already have a 1-0 series lead when the two sides touched down in Delhi to play the second Test. In Nagpur, the Indian spinners ran riot over the Australians and were able to enforce a result within three days. Ashwin and Jadeja were the wreckers in chief as they picked up eight and seven wickets respectively and took India to an innings and 132-run win.
