Images from Day Two in the first Test between Australia and India, in Adelaide, on Wednesday.
Captain Michael Clarke fought through pain to slam 128, while Steve Smith also produced a career-best hundred against India's hapless bowling attack as Australia piled up a mammoth 517 for seven to take control of the first cricket Test on a rain-truncated second day, in Adelaide, on Wednesday.
Clarke defied a back injury, which forced him to leave the field on Tuesday, to notch his 28th Test ton, and combined with Smith (162 not out) to steer Australia to a commanding position on a stop-start day.
It was a frustrating day for the Indians as they leaked runs and managed to garner just one wicket at the fag end of play by getting rid of Clarke, debutant Karn Sharma providing the breakthrough.
The Indian pace bowlers were far from impressive as they bowled a poor line and length and seldom troubled the Australians.
Clarke, despite the back injury, played his shots effortlessly, presented too often by loose deliveries by a rather listless attack.
Smith, on the other hand, continued his good form to clinch his fifth Test century and was undefeated on a career-best 162 when play was called off early due to fading light and rain interruptions.
In all, there were three rain interruptions during the day on which merely 30 overs could be bowled.
On a stop-start kind a day when rain interrupted the match at least thrice, the Australian batsmen scored at a brisk pace.
By the time rain stopped play for the third time, only 21 overs could have been bowled but the Aussies had stolen 119 runs.
Emotions were still running high in the aftermath of Phillip Hughes's death and both Clarke and Smith looked heaven-wards after completing their hundreds to pay tributes to the late batsman, who was named the honorary 13th man before the match.
Earlier, Australia had resumed on 354 for six in 89.2 overs.
For the Indians, however, it was only frustration and Kohli could barely hide his disappointment with his bowlers, who just could not find their rhythm.
The three quick wickets picked up last evening had brought the visitors back into the game but the momentum was quickly lost on Wednesday when Clarke and Smith put on 163 runs for the seventh wicket, scoring at a brisk rate.
