Australia take charge as India batsmen crumble

  • Cheteshwar Pujara reaches 5000 runs

India lost their final first-innings wicket with the opening ball of the morning but the home side were unable to capitalise when they went out to bat with spinner Ravichandran Ashwin tearing through the top order with three wickets.

Day 1 Report: "Australia's fifth bowler has been India's shot selection", said Mark Butcher on commentary, and the former English Test batsman wasn't wrong.

The stumps were drawn after Pujara's wicket, with Mohammad Shami at the crease at 6.

"Our quicks are fresh and Travis Head bowls some handy off-spinners so we have options there but we'll be backing our bowlers".

While it is wrong for Finch to exclusively shoulder the blame for Australia's day two woes, he allowed India to get its tail up from the outset, and it was a position the tourists would not cede for the remainder of the day. It was the Pujara show all day in the face of some disciplined Australian bowling.

"I've been sort of tweaking a few things and trying a few different things with David Saker, looking at perhaps how I bowled in 2015 throughout that World Cup and trying to perhaps get over my front leg a bit more".

But after returning from a break, Hazlewood enticed Rahane into a drive and he edged it to Handscomb, who took the catch above his head at slip and he was gone for 13.

After Ajinkya Rahane fell to another poor stroke, Rohit Sharma, along with Pujara, strung a decent partnership.


Starc hoped to be more consistent with the ball in the coming days. Australia run-rate has been on slower side as they trail by 100 runs now.

Gavaskar's comments come after India were reduced to 56/4 at lunch on a bright, sunny day in Adelaide that marked the start of a much-anticipated four-Test series. That should have been a note of caution for the batsman, but he didn't heed it and skied the very next ball for Harris to take an easy catch in the deep. But at the same time, you also need to look at the number of matches we play in India. Rishabh Pant and Ravi Ashwin chipped in with 25 runs each.

There were 55,000 for day one of the Ashes opener in Adelaide last year, 32,255 on the corresponding day against South Africa a year earlier and 47,441 for the first year against New Zealand, the CA stated.

Usman Khawaja (28) and Handscomb then added 28 runs for the fourth wicket.

Australia's bowling attack did the job on day one, it's now up to the batsmen to do their part.

Ahead of their first Test against India, Paine said the Aussies, still recovering from the ball-tampering scandal, has identified the areas that needed improvements.

The big moment came in the 40th over, when Ashwin got Khawaja's wicket. However, Head who had overcome a nervous start against Ashwin, and Pat Cummins batted with patience and common sense to put together a 50-run stand for the 7th wicket against a rapidly softening ball.
