Rahul Dravid just lost his concentration in a moment of indiscretion and as a result honours were shared on day one of the third Test at WACA, Perth. India dominated the first two sessions, but the Australians came back in the third picking up crucial wickets. India could have done better, but they still have the chance of posting more than just a decent total.Dravid scored a brilliant innings of 93 and Sachin got 71 runs and once again a rough decision.He was very unlucky to be given out and from then on the tide began to turn towards the aussies slowly but surely.This is one of the test matches where India will be looking to maintain the momentum to salvage a draw in the series but the Aussies for sure have grabbed the momentum.Earlier in the day Sehwag and Jaffer put up an attacking partnership of 56 runs.India are 297-6 at close of the day's play. MS Dhoni and Irfan Pathan are on eight each. The honours were shared with India dominating the first two sessions and Australia coming back in the third. It promises to be a great second day.
