Dravid, Yuvraj at the crease as rain washes out second days playDecember 21st, 2007 - 5:26 pm ICT by admin
Melbourne, Dec 21 (ANI): The first session of play reaped rich rewards for Victoria as Allan Wise claimed his fourth victim in the form of Sourav Ganguly.
He departed after scoring 59 valuable runs, but Dravid continued to keep things in check, remaining unbeaten on 38.
Yuvraj Singh was the new batsman at the crease with Dravid.
Only 10 overs were bowled in this morning.
Thereafter, the days play was abandoned, as it started raining heavily.
India are 133 for the loss of four wickets at the close of the second days play.
More rain is expected on Saturday, the last day of the match, which could leave Indian bowlers short of practice ahead of the Boxing Day Test.
The players have instead been training at the MCG’s indoor nets while not at the Junction Oval. They were heading back there for more practice as soon as play was called off, shortly after 3pm local time. (ANI)
