Highlights - India A trip up Australia A to take slim lead
India A's bowlers picked up the last eight Australia A wickets for just 71 runs to bowl them out for 228 and script a stunning comeback, earning a two-run first-innings lead. Australia A's seamers responded strongly, removing India A's openers within 11 overs. India A had raced away to 2 for 44 for an overall lead of 46, before bad light brought a premature end to the second day in Brisbane with 18 overs still left in the day.
Resuming the second day on 0 for 25, Australia A lost two early wickets in economical opening spells from Varun Aaron and Shardul Thakur. However, captain Peter Handscomb and Joe Burns struck brisk fifties to put Australia A in a commanding position.
The duo counter-attacked, striking 15 fours between them to take Australia A to 2 for 117 at lunch. They added a further 40 after the break before Burns was caught for 78 - his second-highest score in any format this year - triggering Australia A's collapse. Handscomb was run out for a 93-ball 87 that featured 15 fours and a six.
Offspinner Jayant Yadav and Aaron picked up three wickets each, while Hardik Pandya and Thakur chipped in with two and one respectively.
