Australia progress through the afternoon session of day one of the second Test match against India without losing a wicket.

Australia captain Michael Clarke helped his side restore parity at tea on the opening day of the second Test match with India.

India struck four times during the morning session to seize an early advantage in the Test match, but Clarke and Mitchell Wade dug in for their side during the afternoon in Hyderabad.

The duo came together at the crease with the score on 63-4, and they looked in fine form as they brought up the hundred for the tourists.

Clarke continued to look solid, and he comfortably moved to his 26th Test fifty, and Wade soon followed with his third half-century as they brought up the three-figure partnership.

Both players increased their run-rate as the session came to a close, and Clarke finished the session on 68 with Wade on 55, as Australia reached tea on 187-4.
