India's Cricket Team Reaches 352-3 on Day One of Second Test Against Pakistan

India's cricket team has compiled an impressive total of 352-3 after the opening day of the second test against Pakistan in Kolkata.

Wasim Jaffer led the way Friday with an aggressive 192 not out as he aims for his second double-century in 24 tests. The opening batsman struck 32 boundaries off 255 deliveries.

Jaffer shared prosperous partnerships with Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar after opener Dinesh Kartik fell for one in the second over.

Jaffer anchored the second-wicket partnership of 136 with Dravid, who had 50, and then a 175-run stand for the third wicket with Tendulkar, who tallied 82. Dravid's 117-ball knock contained seven boundaries.

India won the opening test of this three-match series by six wickets.
