Aussies breaking records again with bat

AUSTRALIA still have their worries at the top of the order, but their colossal first innings in the second Test against India at the SCG was a triumphant return to dominance with the bat.

Australia declared at 4-659 with Michael Clarke 329 not out and Michael Hussey unbeaten on 150, and with nearly two and a half days left in the Test, they really could have kept on going.

The 163-over effort at the crease was the equal second highest team total amassed at the SCG.

It was Australia's biggest innings total since an Ashes Test against England in Cardiff back in 2009.

They scored 6-674 declared that day, but in more recent times Australia have found it a battle just to even get past 150.
