India Needs 50 Runs to Win Cricket Opener as Australia Makes 241

Feb. 26 (Bloomberg) -- India needs 50 runs to win the first cricket Test against Australia after dismissing the touring team for 241 in its second innings early on the final day.

Australia added nine runs to its total of 232-9 after its last-wicket pairing took the match into a fifth day on a deteriorating pitch in Chennai. Moises Henriques top scored with 81 not out, while offspinner Ravi Ashwin led India’s bowlers with 5-95 to follow up his seven wickets in the first innings.

Home captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni struck a career-best 224 to help lift India to 572 all out yesterday in reply to Australia’s first-innings 380.
