The opening day of the first Test between India and Australia at the renowned Adelaide Oval turned out to be an exciting one, despite too many runs not being scored. At one point in time, the visitors got Virat Kohli and Co by the scruff of their necks, having reduced them to 19/3 in the 11th over. The likes of Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins spewed venom.

Runs were hard to come by after India won the toss and elected to bat first. A few loose strokes from some of their star batsmen got them in a rabbit hole. While the likes of Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli got out fishing outside the off-stump, the likes of Rishabh Pant and Rohit Sharma threw their wickets away after getting the measure of the playing conditions.


Nevertheless, Cheteshwar Pujara put his head down and scored 123 runs from 246 balls to drag his team out of the precarious position. His knock was laced with seven boundaries and two sixes. After losing their first five wickets at the score of 86, India ended their day on 250/9. However, they would’ve been happy had Pujara managed to stay not out until the close of play.
