Unlike the Indian team, the Twitterati had a fun day as Ishant Sharma's weird face and Virat Kohli's bad DRS reviews gave them enough material to win the internet for the day. India had good sessions till tea, but due to dropped catches and bad DRS reviews Aussies ended day 2 with a 48 run lead.
On a pitch that offered every bit to the bowlers, the Australian batsmen showed remarkable patience and intent to reach a score of 237/6 by Day 2 of the Bangalore Test. Matt Renshaw and Shaun Marsh scored half-centuries to give them a 48-run lead and a good chance to take a 0-2 lead in the series.
Brief scores: India 189 (Rahul 90, Lyon 8/50) trail by 48 runs against Australia 237/6 ( Renshaw 60, Shaun Marsh 66, Jadeja 3/49)
Ishant Sharma, please give us a warning before making such faces!
And the Ishant Sharma trolls galore!

Need of the hour. Period.
Can we get a separate DRS coach maybe?? #INDvsAUS— Ankit Mishra (@editedidea) March 5, 2017
ICC, please take back this DRS!
If the SC had not fired all of them, the BCCI probably would have done this by now!
BCCI announce India will now get 10 reviews every 80 overs to even things up #INDvsAUS— Stuy Baby (@stuart_maurice) March 5, 2017
Most of Anushka's films have received good reactions from critics. That's the difference between Anushka & Virat. She is good with reviews.— Sagar (@sagarcasm) March 5, 2017
A bit harsh, but... partly true!
Starc looks more confident than Rahane #IndvsAus— Jayram Gaonkar (@jayramgaonkar) March 5, 2017
The math is a bit off, but yeah!
I think number of catches dropped by Indian team is much more than runs scored by oz #INDvsAUS— rakesh sawant (@bluecharls) March 5, 2017
Tempers running high
Kohli berating Jadeja for not taking a catch. Cool it captain. Think how Dhoni would have behaved. #INDvsAUS— Ajay Gahlaut (@meajay) March 5, 2017
careful virat, jadeja can wield a sword #INDvsAUS— Gaurav Kalra (@gauravkalra75) March 5, 2017
This performance makes one think "How crappy the English team was" 😂😂 #INDvsAUS— Anurag Dogra (@anuragdogra87) March 5, 2017
Australia need 50 runs more to win the test . I think even the current lead is also enough for Lyon and O'Keefe #INDvsAUS— Ravi Kumar Yadav (@kumar4u371) March 5, 2017
India or West Indies? Who will win?
WI hold a 60-53 H2H advantage over IND historically but in last 10 completed games between them , IND have won 7. IND has also won all last 5 games at this venue.
