Australia edged the first session and India the second as their second cricket test got under way in Perth yesterday.

India's response got off to a bad start when Starc bowled Murali Vijay for a 12-ball duck and Hazlewood then castled opener KL Rahul for just two. "The average duration of a Test match is just a shade over four days and certainly without jumping to conclusions that that is the right solution, it is one possibility we've got to be open to".

India were in real trouble at 2-8 but Kohli and Pujara, played patient cricket and kept their team in the game at a pivotal time.

A fired-up Mitchell Starc (2-42) rebounded after coming in for some criticism for his bowling during Australia's 31-run defeat in the first test in Adelaide.

Umpire Chris Gaffaney felt the ball was going over the stumps and a review confirmed his decision, with ball tracking having it passing clearly over the bails.

The third day of the second Test between India and Australia will be played on December 15, 2018.

At 310 for six, the home side were edging towards an imposing first innings total after winning the toss and electing to bat.

It was local favourite Harris, who now represents Victoria, who resisted with the composure and resilience of a far more experienced Test batsmen to amass 70 runs, before the lively pitch claimed his wicket.

Earlier, Australia had resumed on 277-6 and captain Tim Paine took his score from 16 to 38, while India also dismissed Pat Cummins (19), Starc (6) and Hazlewood (0).

But after surviving a raucous appeal for LBW, Finch would fall a ball later, trapped plumb in front of his stumps with a low-hanging Jasprit Bumrah (1-41) delivery.

Harris had been dropped at second slip from the bowling of Mohammed Shami on 60, he but added just 10 more before falling to the part-time spin of the recalled Hanuma Vihari.

Marcus Harris, Aaron Finch and Travis Head all made half-centuries but none of them was able to really put their foot down on the gas as India pegged the Australians back on a grassy, drop-in wicket that occasionally played a few tricks.
