Australia Leads India by 120 Runs After Day 2 of Cricket Test

Australia leads India by 120 runs after day two of the third cricket Test in Perth.

Opener David Warner’s 180 helped Australia take a 208-run first-innings lead yesterday. The visitors then stumbled to 88-4 before stumps, leaving Australia needing six wickets to win the series.

Mitchell Starc took 2-14 for Australia and dismissed Sachin Tendulkar, seeking his 100th international century, leg-before- wicket for 8. Rahul Dravid is an unbeaten 32 for India, with Virat Kohli 21 not out.

Australia won the first two Tests and would regain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy contested by the teams by avoiding defeat in either of the last two games.
