Cricket: Dravid leads India's charge
Friday 28 November 1997
The Indian captain was bowled round his legs by Ravindra Pushpakumara for 15, while his side extended their total from 133 for 1 after the rain- hit first day. Rahul Dravid led India's charge against a limited Sri Lankan attack with a polished 92. Navjot Sidhu (79), Mohammad Azharuddin (62) and Saurav Ganguly (67 not out) also scored freely.
Heavy rain stopped the Australian openers, Mark Taylor and Matthew Elliot, pushing on from their solid start against New Zealand in the third Test in Hobart yesterday. After an early lunch, the second and third sessions were washed out with Australia left on 39 for 0.
