    Australia vs India | 1st Test | Adelaide | Dec 6-10, 2018 | Day 2 Thread

    Cheteshwar Pujara's battling 123 – his 16th Test century – helped India bounce back after a poor start to end the first day of the first Test against Australia in Adelaide on 250/9.

    The honours, however, went to Australia as they struck four times in the morning after being asked to field and chipped away at India's resistance through the day despite Pujara's stellar performance.

    Pujara, who scored his first Test century in Australia and comfortably topped his previous best of 73, led India's fightback and took them past the 200-run mark in the final session of the day before being run out by Pat Cummins just before stumps, leaving Mohammed Shami remained unbeaten on six.

    Earlier, Virat Kohli won the toss and opted for first strike on a good batting surface. However, his plans didn't go the way he would have wanted.

    First, India lost KL Rahul in just the second over as he edged one off Josh Hazlewood to Aaron Finch at third slip.

    Shortly after, the visitors lost their other opener, Murali Vijay, and the crucial wicket of Kohli, as Australia reduced India to 19/3 inside 11 overs.

    Mitchell Starc dismissed Vijay for 11 after the opener edged behind to Tim Paine, and soon after, Pat Cummins struck in his first over to get the big wicket of Kohli for 3. Kohli went for a drive to one well outside the off stump, and Usman Khawaja took a stunning catch at gully flying to his left and grabbing it with one hand.

    At that point, India needed a partnership and just when Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane (13) had started to build one, Hazlewood returned to pick up his second wicket as Rahane threw it away, edging to Peter Handscomb at second slip.

    By lunch, India were 56/4. In the second session, an aggressive Rohit Sharma built a 45-run fifth-wicket partnership with Pujara. His innings of 37 ended when, one ball after hitting his third six – debutant Marcus Harris parrying the ball over the line after a smart effort – he attempted a repeat and holed out to Harris.

    Wickets kept on falling from one end but Pujara stood firm, building another valuable partnership with Rishabh Pant, the No.7. Together they added 41 runs before Lyon sent back Pant, who was caught behind for 25.

    When Ravichandran Ashwin came in to bat, India were struggling at 127/6. Along with Pujara, he shared a key stand – the highest of the innings – of 62 runs.

    They both made the Australia bowlers toil in the first hour of the final session before India lost Ashwin for 25. Later, Ishant Sharma was clean bowled by Starc for four even as Pujara went past his personal milestone, walking back only after making sure that India were in a competitive position.

    Australia will be looking to make 500+ on this pitch, if Australia do that then it will be a loss for India, I don't think we will make 500+ very inexpericenced team, but then again a bunch of kids made 500+ againt this Indian bowling attack.

    India needs quick wickets in the first hour, the weather is going to be 43 degrees in Adelaide today and if India doesn't get quick wickets I can see Australia smashing these Indians into kingdom come. India have already shown they are not a world class team, they claim this is their best bowling attack but I have my doubts but all questions will be answered today.

    This match is not evenly poised by any means. If Aussies score 370 then its game over and it looks like phatta wicket.

    Pujara’s century was the only point of discussion across media, noone even cared to say that 250
    Is a very little score on this phatta wicket.

    That is a rather big "if". It is a good batting pitch but Australia don't have many good batsmen.

    It’s a beautiful batting pitch but Australia’s batting line-up is appalling.

    I can’t call this Test.

    I work on the principle that in Test cricket the second and third innings should cancel one another out. So the question is “Could India defend 250 in the Fourth Innings?”

    I think Aus will take it.

    250 runs is not enough even though Aus batting is weaker. Indians top order didn't really get out due to some unplayable balls. Aus just need to bat sensibly. Indian bowlers will take some time to adjust to Aus bounce.

    Very difficult to score another 100 with only 1 wicket left.

    Australia need to just bat with some patience. Due to the heat and flat track Indian bowlers will become tired. Aus have a great chance to physically hurt the Indian attack going forward in the series.

    How Ashwin bowls will be the key.

    Rohit hit Cummins for two classic sixes. Pant hit Starc for a beautiful six.

    What else I want to see in a test match? nothing.
    For me, this Test has provided enough already. Doesn't matter if India lose or win.

    Difficult? It's impossible. Bumrah can't hold a bat and Shami is the greatest slogger in world cricket. Greatest in the sense that he doesn't stop slogging no matter the situation. If India can get to 270, it will be a miracle

    LOL, couldn't have put it better. Shami just knows how to swing and other batsman is worse than McGrath.

    I was being kind to Saj

    Didn't last a ball!

    Now India have to work their backsides off in the field. If the openers can put up a 50 partnership, this could be a long two days in the hot field.

    It was Shami but yeah I get your point, these guys need to atleast know how to hold a bat. Now if India can reduce Aus to about 300 then it's definitely game on! I expect India to bat much better in the 2nd dig. If Australia have to win this test they have to seal the deal in this innings because if it is relatively even after the 1st innings then I'm backing India win this.

    With two lefties at the crease, it wouldn't be the worst idea to let Ashwin have a crack at one end and rotate the seamers from the other.

    I wasn't following the game and assumed that it was Bhumrah. My comments was more true for him. He is like tails used to be 90s. Even Shami simply slogs instead of hanging around even of other end has batsman. But he can slog. Extra 30 runs can be very valuable and bowlers simply needs to put a price on their wicket.

    Hopefully, game is a good one by Aus not scoring too much, otherwise game will be done by the end of Aus inning itself.

    Sun is out. Going should be easier now, particularly after 25 overs. 4 bowler tactics might hurt IND here. Normally, if one side bats first, their bowling work load starts to get splited by night break; but here IND will be bowling 88 overs today.

    Another session to Australia. One more wicket and it would have been even. Looks like it's gonna be a long day for India.
    Though the good news is Ashwin seems to be in some rythm, Ashwin really needs to make it count here with nothing much happening for the seamers.

    Such a poor sledge. And he doesn't even realize the irony!

    I do not rate Ashwin one bit but he's bowled well today. Well done. Khawaja needs to be very careful, he's not the best player of spin.

    He used to when he copied Saeed Ajmal's action for a time but now he is bowling normal..

    Pant is just dumb. Batted like an idiot yesterday and this "sledge" probably gave the Australians more confidence than anything else today.

    He's intentionally chucked in the past so the umpires should call him at the slightest hint of doubt.

    Travis Head looks a bit like ABDV huh?

    Honestly I never thought Ashwin would take 3 wickets in the first innings...

    Everyone knows he did that to end Ajmal the "fake" magician's career.

    His action might still be clean, but he really looks like he might be getting close to that 15 degrees right now.

    Last I checked, Ashwin had absolutely nothing to do with that. He was simply fed up with being a mediocre LO bowler and decided to purposely chuck. Ajmal is never cheated since he was cleared and was bowling with a cleared action his entire career. Ashwin however, chucked knowing full well that he's chucking and admitted as such.

    #Facts.

    Anyways, that's besides the topic. He's bowling well today and looks set for a 5-wicket haul.

    Well, if he is does something hanky panky, he will be called out by the umpires. So far nothing has been said. So don't worry and give your eyes some rest.

    It might help the batsmen to come if the ball stops turning.

    Hope Ashwin's great spell does not turn out like his first innings effort at Old Trafford earlier this year; 4-62 from 26 overs.

    And the next 5 wickets at 59.6.

    His act got media attention and ICC got strict. Finally caught Ajmal the javelin thrower who was masquerading as a cricketer. With his remodeled action, Ajmal's career got over in a jiffy. He was in reality a poor man's Samit Patel.

    Till 2015 end he was a very good ODI/T20 bowler who always stepped up in big events like 2011/15 ICC WCs, 2013 CT, 2012/14 WT20s etc.

    Ajmal's initial action was terrible, it was not a chuck, it was a throw... Just terrible, glad he is no longer playing..

    So guys, who do you reckon is on top? I think India is on top here, but Aus can even out things if they get to 150 without losing a wicket.

    Ashwin bowling beautifully, sense a rich flurry of wickets soon. Only problem is he has bowled 21 consecutive overs and it is really hot out there, he may need some rest.
