As it happened: India vs Australia, 2nd Test, Day 3
Posted on: 08:34 AM IST Mar 04, 2013
The two centurions put on 294 for the second wicket to deflate Australia and put India firmly in command at the end of two day in Hyderabad.
Vijay and Pujara had been joined at the fall of Virender Sehwag for 6 in the third over of Peter Siddle's first spell (7-2-16-1) in which he tested the batsmen with short deliveries and didn't allow them to drive much.
Sunday's play was broken into three distinct passages of play: Vijay and Pujara scratched around 22 overs for 37 runs in the morning session, moved up a gear to take 106 off the afternoon passage, before accelerating in the final two hours to crush a fatigued Australian bowling attack.
