Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin speaks about the hurdles faced on the day two of the Sydney Test.

 

Australia is on 482 for four at the end of the day in reply to India's 191.

 

Ricky Ponting scored 134 while Michael Clarke remained not out on 251 and Michael Hussey on 55.

 

Ishant Sharma took the crucial wicket of Ricky Ponting.

 

Ashwin hopes that the Indian team catches up in the next innings, with three days of the second Test remaining.

 

He also mentions about his bowling performances, both in Sydney and Melbourne.

 

“As a spinner what is there on offer from that wicket? Nothing! It's not like I expect anything of a wicket in Australia on the second day. Not that I expect anything even back in India. It's the second day, you are not going to get much. We got bowled out inside the first day.

 

“It's always going to be catch up. Not just for the bowlers. As I said, you can't fault the efforts of the bowlers. They ran in hard. Ishant was clocking 140 in the final spell. That's all you can expect from the bowlers as of now,” insisted Ashwin.
