Australia's pace attack ripped India apart on the opening day of the second test at the Sydney Cricket Ground. India was all out for 191 as Indian captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, fighting a lone battle, reached his 24th half-century off 67 deliveries.
Pattinson, 21, playing in only his fourth Test match, set the tourists back on their heels with three wickets on the first morning after India won the toss. India reached 72 for four with Tendulkar unbeaten on 21 by lunchtime. Kohli and Tendulkar played solidly for the first half hour after lunch but Kohli was done in by Siddle's aggression. Also the crowd will have to wait until the second innings to see if Tendulkar can score his hundredth international century after he played on for 41.
Ben Hilfenhaus dismissed R. Ashwin and Zaheer Khan off successive deliveries just before tea. Ishant denied Hilfenhaus a hattrick as India resumed their first innings after tea. But it was only a matter of time before India was bowled out. The Australians appeared to have plans for every Indian batsman, which they executed to perfection today.
Meanwhile, Sydney Cricket Ground becomes just the third venue in the world, after Lord's and the Melbourne Cricket Ground, to host a hundred Tests.
