Michael Clarke and Ricky Ponting have both scored centuries to give Australia the upper hand in the second Test against India. At tea Australia had scored 349 runs at the loss of 4 wickets.
Ricky Ponting finally departed after scoring 134 as he was caught by Sachin Tendulkar in the cover-point region off the bowling of Ishant Sharma. Earlier a desperate dive by Ricky Ponting gave him his 40th Test ton. Replays suggested that the batsman would have been on his way out of the ground if Zaheer Khan's throw from mid-on had hit the stumps.
Michael Clarke hit his century in the last over before lunch. His 18th Test century came off just 136 balls with the help of 14 fours. The emphatic 288-run fourth wicket stand between Ponting and Clarke has virtually sealed the match in Australia’s favour.
