Having got a golden opportunity to make a comeback in to the Indian team Tamil Nadu skipper Abhinav Mukund has squandered that chance. A full delivery from Mitchell Starc was just a tad too much for Mukund and he departs LBW for a eight-ball duck.
A session dominated by the Aussies where they kept bowling probing lengths throughout the first session. Starc started off really well as he sent back Mukund in his very second over by bowling a low full toss. Rahul and Pujara stuck in the middle and kept ticking where the former did bulk of the scoring. Just when it was looking like that the Indians would bounce back in it with a stable partnership, Lyon struck just in time before lunch to send Pujara back in the pavilion. At lunch break Australia is dominating and India is hanging on at 72/2.

"We are excited to announce that SpaceX has been approached to fly two private citizens on a trip around the moon late next year," said a statement by CEO Elon Musk. "This presents an opportunity for humans to return to deep space for the first time in 45 years and they will travel faster and further into the solar system than any before them."

The United States, whose annual military expenditure of over $600 billion is more than the defence budgets of the next seven countries combined (China, India, United Kingdom, Japan, France, Saudi Arabia, and Russia) plans to hike its military expenditure by nearly ten per cent.
The Trump administration indicated that the increased allocation will come at the expense of cuts to other federal agencies, including the State Department, which effectively means a cut in US foreign aid, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the favorite target of Conservative Republicans who think it puts a crimp on business.
Budget officials said on Monday that President Trump intends to seek a $54 billion hike in military spending (which would be more than India's entire defence budget) to boost what he has repeatedly termed as a "depleted US military," as part of muscling up America which he thinks is being taken for granted around the world.
