The second Test between India and Australia in Bengaluru is turning into an enthralling encounter with the hosts fighting back strongly on Monday.

Half-centuries from Cheteshwar Pujara [79*] and KL Rahul [51], and an unbeaten 40 from Ajinkya Rahane brought India right back into the contest after Australia had taken an 87-run lead in the first innings.


At the end of play on day three, India have a lead of 126 runs with six wickets still in hand.

On Twitter, former Australian cricketers Michael Clarke and Tom Moody praised the Indian batsmen for standing up to the challenge while former English captain Michael Vaughan was relieved that Australia are not having it all their own way.

Former Indian opening batsman Aakash Chopra also hailed the Indian team for showing character, tweeting: “Sport doesn’t build character. It reveals character. And this Indian Team has shown its character in last two days. Proud.”

Here, we collect the top tweets of the day.
