Maxwell, in particular, was easy meat for Vijay and Pujara as he not only bowled short but also didn?t get to turn his off-breaks as much as Nathan Lyon did.
Vijay hit a couple of big sixes, one each off Doherty over long off and the second off Maxwell over deep mid-wicket boundary.
Earlier, Peter Siddle got the only breakthrough of the first session removing an out-of-form Virender Sehwag.
But the Aussie pace trio of Siddle, James Pattinson and all-rounder Moises Henriques kept things under control as India went into lunch at 54 for one.
Just 23 minutes into the second day, Sehwag was dismissed by Siddle with a rising delivery. The pacer hit three-quarter length and got the ball to rear up awkwardly and also moved a shade kissing the edge of Sehwag's bat as Matthew Wade took the catch.
While the bowler wasn't sure, Wade and the slip cordon were confident and umpire Kumar Dharmasena raised his finger after some deliberation. Sehwag managed only 6.
