The first day of 2nd test match totally belong to India. Gautam Gambhir notched up his seventh hundred in nine Tests, Virender Sehwag completed a feisty century, Rahul Dravid was close to his ton and India posted the highest total scored in a day in a Test in India.
It started with the 233 run stand between centurions, Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir who scored at a very quick rate. That was followed by a 137 run stand for the second wicket between Gambhir and Rahul Dravid before Muralidaran got rid of Gambhir in the last session of play. India look poised to post a mammoth total on the board. It was the first time India scored over 400 in a day, it was the highest opening partnership between Gambhir and Sehwag, and even, Muralitharan, at one point, was leaking at over 6 runs per over.
