Tendulkar & Vijay prove too good against Australia

October 11, 2010 – IR Summary/ABC Sport – India has no regret that Laxman is given rest; India’s Sachin Tendulkar and Murali Vijay took a proper charge for India and both made magnificent centuries on the third day of Second test in Banagalore. Vijay is at 119 and Tandulkar 149, naturally, his 150 is sure and thereafter he is likely to be more dynamic.

In response to the tourists’ first innings of 478, the Indian dynamic duo had pushed the scoreboard to 2 for 314, with Tendulkar on 148 and Vijay cruising past his maiden Test ton to reach 119at the break.

India trails Australia by just 164 thanks to the third-wicket partnership that is now worth 276 runs after Tendulkar joined Vijay at the crease late on Sunday afternoon with things looking grim at 2 for 38.

Vijay, who was called up to the Indian side after VVS Laxman was ruled out with a back injury, built on his third lunchtime score of 73 to amass his maiden Test ton, cautiously navigating through the 90s.

Ben Hilfenhaus was the unluckiest man on the pitch in the middle session, being denied a plum lbw shout against Vijay not long after the lunch break, and then narrowly missing having Tendulkar chop onto his stumps.

He was the cream of the Aussie attack as Nathan Hauritz (0 for 115 from 29 overs) continued to get punished with inconsistent bowling.

Mitchell Johnson took the new ball in the last over before tea but to no avail.
