"The first hour is very important for us. At this stage, the game is very balanced. Michael is in amazing form and hope he gets his two hundred."
Henriques said that the Indians did not bowl too many loose balls.
"It was tougher. It gets easier a bit after you face about 30 balls. It did not become easier because they just were disciplined in what they were trying to do. They were not giving too many bad balls. It is certainly hard grind out there but I enjoyed very much these games.
"As a batter I just had to keep grinding away. It is a hard ground and the spinners were rather disciplined."
