India v Australia, first Test: Day 2 in pictures

India's Virat Kohli walks back after getting out for nought on Day 2 of the first Test match against Australia. It was the first time that Kohli failed to open his account and it seemed like a sign of things to come for the host. Photo: K. Murali Kumar
Steve O’Keefe celebrates the wicket of Wriddhiman Saha. Though it was Mitchell Starc who initiated India’s collapse by dismissing the in-form Indian captain, O'Keefe was the wrecker-in-chief, scalping six Indian wickets while conceding a mere 35 runs. Photo: K. Murali Kumar
K.L. Rahul was the only Indian batsman to show some fight despite struggling with a stomach bug and suffering from cramps. He scored 65 of the 105 runs India managed to cough up in its first innings. Photo: K. Murali Kumar
Steve O'Keefe is congratulated by his team-mates after the dismissal of Ajinkya Rahane. His first-ever five-wicket haul couldn’t have come at a worse time for India as his efforts saw the home team losing its last seven wickets for just 11 runs. Photo: K. Murali Kumar
If you thought the batting collapse was the worst thing that could happen to India on the day, the team dug itself into deeper hole by dropping Australian skipper Steve Smith thrice. Smith remains unconquered on 59 at the end of Day 2 with Australia already enjoying a lead of 298 on a deteriorating pitch. Photo: Reuters
