Tim Paine and Cameron Green have put in a good start for Australia on Day 2 against India, of the ongoing fourth and final Test match, at The Gabba, in Brisbane. The duo will be aiming to build on the momentum from Day 1, where Marnus Labuschagne slammed a heroic century. Marred by a host of injuries, the visitors will be aiming to not leak a lot of runs and hope to restrict a big total. T Natarajan and Washington Sundar will hope to continue their fine form from Day 1, and are amongst the wicket-takers for India. It is worth noting that the duo are making their Test debuts. Natarajan took two wickets on Day 1, including the crucial dismissal of Labuschagne. Sundar sent Steve Smith back to the pavilion. (LIVE SCORECARD)
