India vs Australia Highlights, 1st Test at Adelaide .. Full Cricket Score: Visitors end opening day at 233-6
That's all we have for today. Hope you have enjoyed our coverage. We'll be back again tomorrow to cover the second day of the pink-ball Test. Can Ravichandran Ashwin and Wriddhiman Saha put up a good stand or will the Aussie bowlers dismisss the Indians early? We'll know tomorrow. See you!
India finish the day on 233/6 with Ashwin and Saha still batting. The day has belonged to Australia. India won the toss and opted to bat but lost Shaw in the first over. Mayank fought for a while but it was Kohli and Pujara who kept the brilliant Australian bowlers at the bay for a long period of time. The fortunes swung when Rahane messed up his call and gifted Australia the wicket of Kohli.
From there on Australian pacers dominated as the second new ball helped them pick up the wickets of Rahane and Vihari. Ashwin and Saha are reliable players and India would hope they could take them to a par first innings total tomorrow.
We will be back with out coverage tomorrow at 8 AM IST. Till then, goodbye!
After 89 overs,India 233/6 ( Wriddhiman Saha (W) 9 , Ravichandran Ashwin 15)
STUMPS! Just four from the last over of the day and it comes from Saha's bat through a cover drive. Australians would be delighted with today's performance.
FOUR! Poor delivery from Hazlewood. Full and outside off and Saha punishes him with a solid drive through cover-point area
After 88 overs,India 229/6 ( Wriddhiman Saha (W) 5 , Ravichandran Ashwin 15)
Cummins continues. Ashwin has been aggressive since the time he has come out. He spotted a bouncer from Cummins and went for a pull shot, wasn't in full control but fortunately got enough bat on it to beat the fine leg fielder and find the boundary. Two leg byes also added in the over.
FOUR! Ashwin would have had his heart in his mouth for a brief moment there. He attempted a pull shot but it came out as a top-edge with Hazlewood fielding at fine leg but he failed to get to the ball in time
After 87 overs,India 223/6 ( Wriddhiman Saha (W) 5 , Ravichandran Ashwin 11)
Hazlewood called back into the attack. Ashwin plays a solid push down the ground to collect three runs. Saha adds two runs with a drive to cover-point and it was also a no ball. Quite a lot of no balls have been bowled today.
After 86 overs,India 215/6 ( Wriddhiman Saha (W) 2 , Ravichandran Ashwin 7)
Cummins has been called into the attack to have a go with the new ball. Three from the over. Ashwin collects a double with a thick edge running past the gully as he attempted a drive, he then added a single with a push to covers.
After 85 overs,India 212/6 ( Wriddhiman Saha (W) 2 , Ravichandran Ashwin 4)
Starc continues. Five from the over. Ashwin adds a single with a drive through offside before collecting a double through a pull shot that is cut off by the fine leg fielder. Saha also manages a double with a flick before he gets beaten on the last delivery which moved away just a bit.
After 84 overs,India 207/6 ( Wriddhiman Saha (W) 0 , Ravichandran Ashwin 1)
Another wicket falls as India lose Vihari. The right-handed batsman departs after being out LBW against Hazlewood. He was caught in the crease with a length delivery that came in, beat his inside edge to hit him on the pads. R Ashwin has come in to bat now. After a long day of some disciplined bowling, Aussie pacers are enjoying the assistance the second new ball is offering. The lights have obviously made things difficult for the Indian batsmen.
