    A familiar collapse from Australia left the tourists gasping for space at the end of the first day of the Hyderabad Test against India. We’ll bring you the live coverage of the action throughout the second day from 3.00pm AEDT.

    A bold declaration at the end of the day from Michael Clarke followed a couple of spells of batting that were overwhelmingly pathetic but not entirely shocking.

    If the late-order collapse to the Ravindra Jadeja-Harbhajan Singh pair was a part of an expected script, Australia top-order batting against the seam bowling of Bhuvneshwar Kumar left much to desire.

    It did not take too much time for Australia to slump to 4/63 at the start and later surrender their last five wickets for the addition of only 29 runs, raising serious questions about their pedigree in these conditions.

    It was left to the captain Michael Clarke to lead from the front but without much support bar Matthew Wade, Australia find themselves staring at a long day in the field on the second day. A total of 237 may be a challenging one to defend for the visitors.

    Despite the pitch offering assistance to both spinners and seam bowlers, it will depend on how quickly the Australian bowlers adapt to these conditions. Especially given that the tourists dropped Mitchell Starc for this game and replaced him with a sort-of-spinner in Glenn Maxwell.

    Xavier Doherty isn’t the bigger turner of the ball but as was evident from the first day pitch he should get help. How Peter Siddle and James Pattinson go with the new ball will prove decisive.

    The Indian openers Murali Vijay and Virender Sehwag haven’t had the best of times at the top and are under much pressure to retain their spots but the next four have all had a good knock at Chennai. An early wicket or two will keep the Australian hopes alive.

    Conversely if the Vijay-Sehwag stand can see the side through close to the lunch break, it could prove to be a morale-sapping affair for the tourists.

    Live coverage of the game begins from 3.00pm AEDT this afternoon, so add your opinion in the comments section below.

      Seriously did anyone look at are line up and think we could bowl Indian out twice???

      I seriously think this NSP is worse then Hilditch and co and I use to go on about getting rid of them. If Pattison and Siddle didnt take wickets where were they going to come from? Doherty cant buy a wicket in sheild cricket Maxwell is a fielding all rounder Henriques is a honest toiler and bowled well but not going to take a bag full. Like a lot of people I thought the second test line up was some bad joke when I saw the team for this test. Looking at the wicket and how it played on day 1 we would of being better with another seamer then doherty. Our NSP border or incompetent.

      I read a post from a English fan saying did our NSP watch any of the India vs England series because what happened to us in the first test happened to them. It makes you wonder if we did any research on the previous series whatsoever.

      Saying that we can pick whatever bowlers but if our batsmen cant make runs then it doesnt matter.

        So far this series India are 933/13 – and yet when looking at the Australian team you would say that our bowling is our strength 🙂

      india will bat until lunch on day four, make over 650, then bowl us out before lunch on the 5th, Inverarity needs to be sacked; we’ll be lucky to win one test in England at this rate and will struggle to even draw the series at home

      Terrible day by Australia.

      In a sad way, I am losing interest in this test series, thanks mainly to some ordinary selections like Maxwell and Doherty, and all too often batting collapses. For the benefit of Australian cricket, Australia needs to get beaten 4-0 in this test series.

      That way there would be no BS or spin by either Clarke, the NSP or from CA.

      Australia can put in a handy XI on the park with the inclusions of Rogers, Khawaja and O’Keefe. However, are the NSP really doing their job?

        Khawaja is a must for the next match but some if the other names being mentioned can’t be picked as they are unfortunately not in the squad

      How can such a great player and captain (Clarke) be so poor at selecting a good Aussie team. Lyon and Doherty were always going to go poorly. Both are barely state level cricketers!! Cowan is just not up to it and as much as I want to see Hughes go well, he just can’t play spin bowling.

      My team:
      Khawaja(want Hughes but not in India)
      Henriques(deserves a fair go now even though he shouldn’t have got a run to begin with)
      Bird(could take Lyon if pitch turns)

      Best Australian team in my opinion

        Barnsey i like your side but given Marsh is injured for the next 2 months he won’t be playing the next test. So the side for next test would be:

          What about Jacques? Ashes wise he’s played in England for his whole career and averages 49 for Australia… Only 33 as well

          Isn’t Watson coming home for the birth of his child, and Bird is out for six weeks or so.
          I haven’t seen anywhere that any replacemrents are nbeing flown in, meaning only the remaining 15 will be selected from. Slim pickings.

      So much for the we will smash a pathetic Indian side in India. Those headlines seem a, lifetime away.

      We have only won like 1 series in India in 50 years, did we really think we would walk over and trounce them.

      England beat them with 2 world class spinners, and a much better batting lineup than ours.

      Worst day of australian cricket in a long time. Feels like that was it 47 or 63 Pakistan got is for in England in 2010.

      STH Africa dismissed us cheaply in South Africa, but this is worse. Coz we have been exposed as having know spinners in the country.

      And our batting is weak too, vs spin,. Despite the Indian medium pacer getting 3 wickets early on, spin did play a big part in our demise.
