New Delhi: Batting great Sunil Gavaskar felt India squandered another opportunity to be in a commanding position after being bowled out for 408 on Day Two of the second Test against Australia.

India, resuming the day on 311-4, could only add 97 runs to their first innings. In reply, Australia were 221 for four and trailed by 187 runs before play was called off earlier than scheduled time owing to bad light.

"It was a little disappointing that Rohit (Sharma) got out after getting a start. I was hoping India would get 450 plus.

That way they would have got a 150-170 run lead if they bowled out Australia for 300. At one stage even 400 looked tough but R Ashwin and Dhoni had a good partnership," Gavaskar told NDTV.
