Adelaide, Dec 12 (IANS) | Publish Date: 12/12/2020 1:00:28 PM IST

Indian batsmen piled runs in the second innings of the day-night warm-up game against Australia A at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) with Rishabh Pant and Hanuma Vihari scoring hundreds and Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal hitting half-centuries during the second day’s play. India closed the day at 386 for four with a lead of 472 runs as the Aussie attack, that included Test leg-spinner Mitchell Swepson, came under the cosh.

Pant smashed 103 off 73 balls with six sixes and nine fours while Vihari made 104 off 194 deliveries with 13 fours. Pant scored 22 runs off the last five balls of the day to race to his hundred. He was on 81 when the final over began.

India were bowled out for 194 in the first innings but responded well to dismiss the Aussie A side for 108 as 20 wickets fell on the first day on Friday. Prithvi Shaw was dismissed early off the bowling Mark Steketee in the second innings on Saturday. Shaw drove uppishly and was caught at cover-point with the team score on four.

However, both Agarwal and no.3 Shubman Gill then added 104 for the second wicket to grab the early initiative. Gill (65) was quietened towards the end of his innings before Swepson snared him with a leg-break that got the edge of his bat and was caught well by Sean Abbott, who bowled just seven overs in the day as the Aussie team management sought to rest him ahead of the Test series.
