Lokesh Rahul yet again faltered and had to depart early and too could not do much with the bat, captain gave shape to the innings and was closer to his fifty but Holder's in-swinging delivery ended his inning.

After Kohli, and Ajinkya Rahane stayed on the wicket, spent their own time and then charged at the batsmen, the duo made their respective fifties and are still not out.

Prithvi shined with the bat yet again and was going strong at the score of 70 bbut he picked Warrican's delivery and mis-timed it, resulting in the loss of his wicket.

In the final session, India in 34 overs scored 135 runs, ourtesy, and Ajinkya Rahane.


India were at 173/4 at tea on the second day of match in Hyderabad.
