Symonds Smacks Century to Save Aussie Innings

Australia's cricket team has scored 376-7 by stumps on the first day of its second test match against India in Sydney.

After winning the toss and electing to bat first, Australia lost four wickets in rapid succession. However, Andrew Symonds was able to lift his team out of trouble with an unbeaten 137 runs, his second career test century.

Indian bowler R. P. Singh was 4-28 in 21 overs. Harbhajan Singh finished 2-88.

Symonds resurrected the home team's innings with partnerships of 173 with Brad Hogg and 69 with Brett Lee. Hogg was caught out for 79 runs while Lee was not out for 31.

Australia won the first test of the series by 337 runs in Melbourne. The Aussies are hoping to win their 16th test match in a row. The third test starts in Perth on January 16th.
