Australia's wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade believes that if his side bowls well on the second day of the second Test, it can restrict India to under 230.

“You never know. These wickets are so different to what we are used to. Any lead will be an advantage at this stage. I feel if we bowl well enough we can definitely restrict India to under 230,” Wade told reporters after the first day’s play of the second Test against India here on Saturday.

On being asked if 237 was enough on the wicket on the first day, he replied: “Obviously with the ball little bit harder, there was probably a little more up and down bounce in the first hour or so. Hence, the reason we probably declared.

“We felt if we can get the ball in the right area, get one to stay low or get one to jump up, we can get a couple of nicks or a couple of lbws, we can have a couple of wickets tonight. That didn’t happen but we are pretty confident that if we hit the stumps enough, we are going to create enough chances.”
