India guns shot down by Aussies again

AUSTRALIA'S inexperienced bowlers once again put India to the sword and put the hosts in a dominant position at stumps on day one of the second Test at the SCG.

Led by young quick James Pattinson, Australia's underrated trio of pacemen humiliated India's vaunted top order to dismiss the tourists for 191 shortly after tea in the landmark 100th Test at the historic venue.

By stumps, Australia had overcome a top order wobble of their own to be 3-116 in reply with captain Michael Clarke (47no) and his predecessor Ricky Ponting (44no) sharing an unbroken 79-run stand. 

Pattinson was the star of the day, crashing through India's top order in his fourth Test to move to 24 wickets at 14.45 so far in his international career.

He removed Gautam Gambhir (0) in the day's first over before adding the prize scalps of Virender Sehwag (30), VVS Laxman (2) and Sachin Tendulkar (41) - still one short of his 100th international hundred - to put the Australians well on top.
