February 25, 2013

India made 572 in reply to Australia’s first-innings 380 on day four of their series- opening cricket Test in Chennai as home captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni struck 224.

Dhoni’s 265-ball innings, which included 24 fours and six sixes, was the third-highest score by a wicketkeeper in elite Tests. It ended when he gloved a catch behind off a delivery from James Pattinson, who finished as Australia’s best bowler with 5-96. Spin bowler Nathan Lyon took 3-215 in 47 overs.

India added 57 runs in about an hour after resuming day four on 515-8.

The teams are scheduled to play four Tests, with matches following in Hyderabad, Mohali and Delhi.
