A disciplined Indian bowling display has left Australia's batsmen strangled in a classic day two of Test cricket at the Adelaide Oval.

After dismissing the tourists for their overnight score of 250, Australia's inexperience showed as they stumbled to a score of 7-191 at the end of the day's play, 59 runs behind India's first innings total.

Australia's effort was held together by Travis Head who showed outstanding application and finished the day unbeaten on 61, while Mitchell Starc also remained unbeaten on eight.

Australia , officially the Commonwealth of Australia , is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania and numerous smaller islands.

Despite a fighting Cheteshwar Pujara century on the first day, Australia came out for day two looking to wrap up the Indian innings immediately and couldn’t have hoped for a better start as Mohammed Shami was caught down the leg side off Josh Hazlewood.

However, if Australia thought that wicket would be an indicator of how easy the rest of the day would be, they were sorely mistaken.

Perhaps that is what Aaron Finch thought when he thought unfurling an expansive cover drive off his third delivery would be a good decision.

The Indian cricket team began a tour of Australia in December 2007, playing the 4 match Test series for the Border Gavaskar Trophy, followed by a single Twenty20 match on 1 February 2008.

Finch was one of Australia’s best during the recent series against Pakistan, but showed his Test inexperience and had his stumps shattered by Ishant Sharma as a result.

While it is wrong for Finch to solely shoulder the blame for Australia’s day two woes, he allowed India to get its tail up from the outset, and it was a position the tourists would not cede for the remainder of the day.

After Sharma’s initial breakthrough, Test debutant Marcus Harris and Australia’s best batsman Usman Khawaja toiled hard to fight their way through the new ball.

Enter Ravichandran Ashwin.

Ashwin is perhaps the Indian Premier League’s biggest success story, rising through the local competition to become a household name in the Indian team and arguably the best finger-spinner in the world.

However, despite his glittering career numbers which have seen him tally 336 wickets in just 64 Test matches, Ashwin’s record in Australia stuck out like a sore thumb.

In the lead up to this Test series, the Indian bowling attack talked a big game and insisted that this time would be different, and Ashwin set about proving exactly that.

Since making his Test debut back in 2010, Ashwin has made a living off some of the world’s best left-handed batsmen.

He famously wrapped a web around Kumar Sangakkara in his final Test in 2015, leaving the Sri Lankan behemoth looking like a Test debutant, and on Friday, Ashwin added three more left-handed victims.

First to go was Harris, after a hard-working innings of 26, Ashwin expertly used all his guile and experience to remove the man on Test debut, having the Australian caught at silly mid off after he misjudged a drifting delivery.

With David Warner and Steven Smith out, Australia was hoping for Shaun Marsh’s experience to come to the fore, but he looked like a deer in the headlights in the midst of an Ashwin masterclass.

India’s discipline prevailed on day two, and there was no better example than the dismissal of Marsh which required extreme control from the tourists.

After being strangled due to a combination of accurate bowling by Ashwin and aggressive field-setting from Virat Kohli, Marsh combusted, dragging a wide Ashwin delivery onto his stumps, leaving the home side teetering at 3-59.

What has made Ashwin so lethal in the Test arena is his relentless accuracy combined with his ability to get batsman out in different ways and he showcased it with each of his dismissals on day two.

Next to go was Khawaja, who’s 125-ball innings of 28 was ended after Ashwin got a delivery to turn and bounce just enough to kiss the outside edge of his bat.

Khawaja’s dismissal left Australia in a hole at 4-87, and Peter Handscomb on his return to the Australian side provided some fight alongside Travis Head.

However, as well as Handscomb applied himself, he would have been left extremely disappointed by the nature of his dismissal; caught behind for 34 looking to cut a harmless Jasprit Bumrah delivery.

Indian bowler's dark mood despite Test win

Indian bowler's dark mood despite Test win As his teammates celebrated their opening Test win over Australia, Indian paceman Ishant Sharma was in a dark mood. The reason? He'd bowled a no-ball which, for a tense time, he thought might have cost India a Test win against Australia. Chasing 323, the Australians were 9-279 in the first Test on Monday when a Sharma ball thundered into the pads of Nathan Lyon. As the veteran fast bowler turned to appeal for a match-winning lbw, he saw the umpire's call: no-ball. Australia only added another dozen runs before India secured victory. But Sharma was angry.

While Ashwin was undoubtedly the headline act for the tourists, the unsung hero was Ishant Sharma who spearheaded the attack impressively.

Since bursting onto the scene in 2007, Sharma has become somewhat of an enigmatic figure in Indian cricket, failing to reach the lofty heights that many predicted for the then 19-year-old.

He no longer consistently brushes the 150 km/h mark, but is undoubtedly a better bowler, as showcased by his superb accuracy on day two.

After setting the tone for India with the wicket of Finch, Sharma rarely bowled a poor delivery and was justly rewarded with the wicket of Australian captain Tim Paine, who was caught nicking behind as Australia fell to 6-127.

Bumrah then added to Australia's pain by striking with the new ball late in the day, dismissing Pat Cummins for 10.
