The Indian top order fired in unison but the second day's highlight was the 222-run third wicket stand between Tendulkar (143) and Dravid (111), who retired hurt after a Shahadat Hossain bouncer had hit him on the ear guard.
India were 495 for five -- 226 runs ahead of their hosts -- when stumps were drawn after Harbhajan Singh's (13) dismissal in the 103rd over of the innings. India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was batting at 22 at stumps.
