Hyderabad: Mar 2, 2013

They have not posted a big first innings total but Australian wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade says their bowlers can still get them a lead against India in the second cricket Test.

Australia declared their innings at 237 for nine after electing to bat.

“These wickets are so different to what we are used to playing on. Any lead will be an advantage at this stage. I feel that if can we bowl well, we can definitely restrict India to under 230. We have got to bowl well enough,” said Wade, who scored a valuable 62 and added 145 runs for the fifth wicket with skipper Michael Clarke (91).

About the declaration at the fall of ninth wicket, Wade reasoned, “The main message that we tried sending was let’s try and get a couple of wickets tonight.”

“There was up and down bounce. We felt, if we can get the ball in the right areas, get one to stay low or get one to jump up, we can get a couple of nicks or a couple of leg befores. Maybe, we can have a couple of wickets tonight. That didn’t happen but we are pretty confident that if we hit the stumps enough, we will create enough chances.”

Wade applauded the Indian bowlers for keeping up the pressure.

“They (bowlers) bowled well and the ball was reversing. They got early wickets and then challenged us with every ball they bowled. They will play their role throughout well.”

About his own innings, the 25-year-old Tasmanian said, “I felt in control today. I felt like my plans against the spinners and quicks came off pretty well. Still, it was pretty disappointing to get out when I did. Myself and Michael had built up a good platform. We lost a lot of wickets in that last session. I was satisfied in a way that my plans worked.”
