New Delhi:

Regarding series decider test match at Dharamsala, former captain Sunil Gavaskar on Sunday said that Australia held the upper hand against India at the end of second day’s play.

At the end of Day 2 India score 248 runs for the loss of 6 wickets, host need 52 runs to get past Australia’s 300 runs.

Ravindra Jadeja and Wriddhiman Saha were unbeaten batsmen at the close of play.

“Australia hold the upper hand because they have taken six major wickets,” Gavaskar told a private news channel.

“Sure Jadeja can hit the ball, Saha got a hundred in the previous game, but Australia have the second new ball in their hands and just about three or four overs old, so tomorrow morning it’s going to be very, very difficult for India".

“There is a little bit of carry on this surface, the ball is thudding into the wicketkeeper’s gloves particularly when Pat Cummins is letting it rip and they are getting movement so I think India will find it hard to get close to the Australian total.”
