Australia vs India: India's batsmen cop criticism for first day

Australia vs India: India's batsmen cop criticism for first day

Virat Kohli's decision to bat first seemed to have backfired, but the high-quality batting from Pujara saved the day for the Indians at the Adelaide Oval. Tail-ender Mohammed Shami survived to stumps on six, with Jasprit Bumrah the last batsman to resume on day two.

Skipper Virat Kohli on Wednesday played down suggestions Australia are vulnerable after the ball-tampering scandal, as his India side try to win a series Down Under for the first time. India was reeling at 19/3 when Ajinkya Rahane joined Pujara on the crease. Anything close to 250 looked a mountain to climb with India reeling at 56/4 at lunch. Rohit Sharma showed signs of aggressive batting, scoring 37 runs with three sixes.

Pujara continues to collects runs at quick pace, while going for more attacking shots such as the uppercut. He got in partnerships with the tailenders and stretched India's total beyond 200.

The Hamas spokesperson further stated, "Collaborators must realize the (Israeli) occupation will not be able to protect them". A Hamas-controlled military court on Monday sentenced six Palestinians to death for allegedly collaborating with Israel.

Sharma then had a brain fade and needlessly tried the same thing on the next ball, and this time debutant Marcus Harris comfortably collected the catch, with the right-hander once more failing to capitalise on a good start.

In marched superstar Kohli to a huge roar from the crowd, but a stunning catch by Usman Khawaja at gully off a Pat Cummins delivery saw him back in the pavilion for only three off 16 balls, with India in trouble.

Pujara's resolute stay helps India cross the 250-run mark, which will be a morale booster for their bowling unit when it's their turn to ply their trade with the Kookaburra.

Aussie pacers made ideal use of the new ball to get rid of KL Rahul, Murali Vijay and Virat Kohli inside the first 11 overs with Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins striking once each. Five overs later came the next downfall as Vijay repeated Rahul's mistake, the ball eventually caught by Aussie captain Tim Paine at wicket-keeping.
