India have moved to a solid start in their first innings on Day Two of the third Test against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan have been in good form and they are playing very well to help India start well. Australia had earlier scored 530 before the tea break.
Vijay and Dhawan have driven any deliveries pitched full. Both batsmen have managed to get their eye in and are playing some good shots. The shot that stood out was the one Vijay flicked through square-leg for four.
Earlier, Australia had won the toss and had elected to bat first. Joe Burns is debuting for them. On the other hand, India brought in KL Rahul, who gets his Test cap. Mohammed Shami has replaced Varun Aaron. Australia are leading the series 2-0 after winning the first two Tests in Adelaide and Brisbane. Steven Smith’s 192 helped Australia score 530 in the first innings
