IND vs AUS, 4th Test, Day 2 Live Updates​: Ravichandran Ashwin has led India’s fightback on Day 2 as took three quick wickets to hault Australia’s progress. Axar Patel then dismissed Usman Khawaja (180) on the first ball after tea to put India back into the contest. Ashwin ended a 206-run stand between Cameron Green and Usman Khawaja, dismissing the former on 114. Four balls later, Alex Carey threw away his wicket as was caught off Ashwin’s delivery on a duck. He then got the better of Mitchell Starc to put India back into the contest. Earlier, Green, who was batting on 49 at stumps, accompanied Usman Khawaja, who slammed his 14th century on Day 1, and slammed his maiden Test ton. After opting to bat first, Australia lost a total of four wickets on the Day 1 but Khawaja — who brought up his 14th Test ton and first on Indian soil — kept the guests going. (LIVE SCORECARD)

Here are the Live Score Updates of Day 2 of the 4th Test match between India and Australia, straight from Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad:

  • 15:15 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Four Runs!

    Lyon pulls it over deep midwicket! Short outside off but not short enough, he swivels and cracks it high over midwicket. Valuable runs for Australia

    AUS: 443//8 (156.2)

  • 14:57 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Four Runs!

    Murphy playing out of his skin here. A short ball from Axar, and he has carved it away for a boundary. These runs could be crucial for Australia

    AUS: 429/8

  • 14:39 (IST)


    This is a bizarre dismissal! First ball after tea, and Khawaja departs. There was an half-hearted appeal for lbw. Pujara takes the review as Rohit has not come out to field. Replay show 3 red lights and Khawaja falls on 180.

    Usman Khawaja lbw b Patel 180 (422)

    AUS: 409/8

  • 14:14 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Tea Break!

    Nathan Lyon has now played 35 balls, 10 more than Starc and Carey combined. As long as he is there in the middle, Khawaka is likely to take it slow and easy. The moment he gets out, we could see a different Uzzie.

    And the umpire has called for Tea.

    Khawaja on 180. Australia 409/7

  • 13:48 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: 400 Up For AUS!

    Khawaja brings up the 400 for Australia. If another wicket falls from here, Khawaja is likely to go all in for his 200. Ashwin has really changed the scenario.

  • 13:27 (IST)


    Ashwin in now a roll! Starc tickles it to short leg. India are back in this. Good catch from Iyer

    Mitchell Starc c Iyer b Ashwin 6 (20)

    AUS: 387/7 (135.3)

  • 13:20 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Shami Into The Attack!

    Shami is attacking Starc from round the wicket. He has tasted plenty of success from that position previously. But the problem is, that there is no scope of reverse swing at the moment. Pitch still looks lush green.

  • 13:03 (IST)


    Two in an over for Ashwin! Needless shot from Carey and he pays the price. Skews off the outside edge to backward point! India are suddenly back in the mix

    Alex Carey c Patel b Ashwin 0 (4)

    AUS: 378/6 

  • 13:00 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Breakthrough!

    India finally get the wicket they had been dreading for. Ashwin breaks Green’s resistance as Australia go five down. 206-run stand comes to an end

    Cameron Green c KS Bharat b Ashwin 114 (170)

    AUS: 378/5 (130.2)

  • 12:44 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Another Landmark!

    Khawaja pushes off the back foot through point and brings up the 200-run stand.

    AUS: 370/4 (124.6)

  • 12:39 (IST)


    This is now Australia’s highest fifth-wicket stand in Test cricket in India. Green and Khawaja are past Smith and Maxwell’s 191 from 2017.

  • 12:31 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Four Runs!

    Cameron Green and cover drives, a better love story than Twilight! He has nailed that to perfection once again. No luck for India once again. Australia continue to pile misery

  • 12:26 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: 100 for Green!

    A maiden century for Cameron Green! He reached the mark with a boundary. It took him 28 innings to do so

  • 11:39 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Lunch Break!

    Another session without a wicket for India. Australia adding 92 in 29 overs without any loss. Khawaja on 150, and Green on 95. Plenty of cricket still left to play

    AUS: 347/4 (119)

  • 11:31 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Four Runs!

    Green moves into the 90s. Short ball, pulled away with brute. Crunched to deep square leg

    AUS: 342/4 (118.1)

  • 11:28 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Khawaja Slams 150!

    150 for Khawaja! He pulls right behind the wicket, as the ball dribbles into the boundary. Has scored a lot runs in that zone.

  • 11:13 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Four Runs!

    Driven throw covers. Green moves into the 80s. Expensive over from India’s perspective, and a good one for Australia. With lunch approaching fastly, things not looking good for the hosts. This is already the highest partnership of this BGT. 

    AUS: 325/4 (114)

  • 10:50 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Four Runs!

    Driven through mid-off. Green has played this shot quite a few times but that one looked sublime. Came slightly forward to drive that wide of the fielder. Wasn’t a bad ball from Umesh

  • 10:36 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Drinks Break!

    Australia have managed to 42 runs in the first hour of play on Day 2. Umpire signals for drinks break but Siraj and KL Rahul are out in the middle with some pieces of Watermelon. 

  • 10:32 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Khawaja Supremacy!

    Usman Khawaja now has the highest individual score in an innings this Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Has been patient throughout this innings. Still going strong

  • 10:19 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: India Need Wickets!

    Still no sigh of relief for India. Khawaja and Green haven’t dropped their guard. No help from the track either for the bowlers.

  • 09:58 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Green, Khawaja Hold Guard!

    No success for India so far as Green and Khawaja continue to frustrate the hosts. A wicket here could change the dynamics. 

  • 09:36 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: 7th 50 for Green!

    50 for Cameron Green. He punches off the back foot to long off to reach an excellent half-century. His 7th in Test cricket 

  • 09:32 (IST)


    Australian batters Usman Khawaja and Cameron Green are out in the middle, sporting armbands to pay homage to Pat Cummins’ mother Maria, who saddly died. The first ball is not too far.

  • 09:16 (IST)

    IND vs AUS LIVE: Pat Cummins’ mother no more!

    A sad news coming this morning that Australia Test skipper Pat Cummins’ mother has passed away. Cummins gave the 3rd and 4th Test against India a miss to be with his mother. As a mark of respect, the Australian players will don black armbands on Day 2 of the 4th Test against India.

  • 09:14 (IST)
