Rohit Sharma’s careless shot selection after excellent bowling attack restricted Australia to 369 Rain washed off the entire third session.

A downpour during the tea break led to the final session of the second day of the fourth Test between Australia and India at the Gabba on Saturday to be called off. Heavy rain was still coming when the third session was scheduled to start, with water pooling at the edge of the covers. The ground quickly resembled a lake as the rain continued to blanket the Gabba ground.

The umpires had a survey at the conditions, it was heavy rain and the ground hasn’t recovered well from the deluge. So, the final session has been washed out and India finishes at 62 for 2.

With rain delaying restart of play after the Tea break, India will be trying to gain some momentum against Australia, on Day 2 of the ongoing fourth Test match, at The Gabba on Saturday. Openers Rohit Sharma (44) and Shubman Gill (7) lost their wickets to Nathan Lyon and Pat Cummins respectively. Full Scorecard

India is 2-60 in reply, with Cheteshwar Pujara (8) and Ajinkya Rahane (0) at the crease after Pat Cummins had Shubman Gill (7) caught by Steve Smith at second slip and Rohit Sharma holed out to Nathan Lyon for 44.

Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane will be hoping to anchor the innings. The hosts were bowled out for 369 before the Lunch break and will be hoping for their bowling department to perform against the visitors.

Earlier in the day, India claimed 5 wickets in the first session of day two of the fourth Test to have Australia bowled out for 369 at the Gabba.

Paine and Cameron Green scored quickly but were troubled by extra bounce and early cracks in the Gabba wicket. Paine (50) made a half-century but was dismissed by Shardul Thakur shortly after, while Green (47) followed him into the sheds when he was bowled by Washington Sundar the following over.

India then took three wickets in three overs when Thakur struck again to have Cummins (2) trapped in front.

Australia falls from 5-311 to 8-315, but Lyon (24), Mitchell Starc (20) and Josh Hazlewood (11) wagged the tail to ensure the hosts passed 350.
