Brisbane: A costly no-ball from pacer Varun Aaron and a blistering unbeaten 99 from Hilton Cartwright have put Australia ‘A’ in a commanding position against India ‘A’ on Day Two of the second unofficial Test here yesterday.

Cartwright was equally well complemented by Beau Webster (79) and Nic Maddinson (81) as Australia ‘A’ cashed in on the best batting conditions to end the day on 319-5, an overall lead of 150.

Earlier, Hardik Pandya failed to add to this overnight score of 79 as India ‘A’ was bowled out for 169.

With a little bit of moisture on the pitch from overnight rain, Shardul Thakur dismissed Joe Burns and Travis Dean in space of 10 balls to leave Australia reeling at 11-2.

Maddinson had a fair amount of luck as he somehow survived the first 10 balls before smashing Thakur for three fours in one over. With the score reading 45-2, Maddinson edged one to wicketkeeper Naman Ojha, but unfortunately for India, umpire ruled Aaron had overstepped the line. It was a defining moment of the match as Maddinson continued on make merry and scored a fluent 81 before finally edging Jayant Yadav to the slips.
