Day 2 of the Ranchi Test was an eventful one as the Twitterati had yet another field day with Maxwell breaking his bat and Jadeja making a stunning Dhoni-esque run-out to dismiss the Hazlewood and restricting Australia to 451 in the first innings. Here is what Twitter said about the day's action.
Riding on a defiant 67-run innings by KL Rahul, India ended the Day 2 with 120/1 on the board, chasing the 451 that Australia posted in the Ranchi Test. Ravindra Jadeja was the star of the show for India as he claimed five wickets stopping the visitors from going past the 500-run mark.
And we start with Virat Kohli's injury update!
