India also gave a strong reply to the visitors innings. Lokesh Rahul the man in form once again scored half century. KL Rahul scored a quick-fire half century as India finished Day 2 on 120/1 with Murali Vijay batting on 42. The pitch did produce uneven bounce on a couple of occasions but it was not something that bothered the batsmen too much.
“Very happy to get back into the Test team,” said Glenn Maxwell. “That partnership with Smudge put us in a good position. We would have liked one or two more wickets. To have that faith shown in me, to produce that innings has been really amazing. A little bit more up and down, and a little bit more spin today. Hopefully that continues as the match wears on” stated Glenn after the play.
