Cheteshwar Pujara stands tall amidst shoddy Indian batting — Twitter Reactions

  • India vs Australia Test series

Second Test half-century for the left-hander.

India's last of only three Test-match wins in Australia came at the WACA in Perth in 2008, when India prevailed by 72 runs. He is batting on 39. The hosts will be looking to get close to India's total. India in control now.

Tim Paine is in an unenviable position.

Australia took four wickets before lunch with the batsmen guilty of playing at deliveries they would have been better off leaving alone. Ends up edging it to the wicketkeeper.

For an over or two shortly before tea, Lyon channelled his inner Mark Waugh and donned the sunglasses while sending down deliveries.

"You can't judge a wicket until both teams have had a crack". Handscomb and Head head back to the hutch having done a decent job thus far.

Getting better and better this partnership.

The pressure is on Australian batsmen. Meanwhile, Ravi Ashwin is continuing from one end.

The Fed needs to raise interest rates to stave off inflation but investors fear they may also slow down economic growth. But Shayne and I believe that on this dovish statement 3 rate increases for next year look less certain.

The other active Indian bowler, who could join the list is Umesh Yadav, who has 42 wickets to his name in 11 matches.

Marsh, thrust into the role of senior batsman alongside Usman Khawaja in the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner, had tuned up for the Test series with scores of 80, 98, 163 not out and 81 among six Sheffield Shield innings. Good use of DRS this. U Khawaja c Pant b Ashwin 28 (125).

"Let's hope so. We will take it one step at a time". Meanwhile, Peter Handscomb has joined him in the middle.

Thursday's attendance was also lower than the 25,619 who turned up for an India-Australia clash here four years ago (which was a day match).

"Cheteshwar Pujara batted a lot of time". Before that, however, Sharma provided the shot of the day with a pure off-drive off Pat Cummins that went all the way for six in front of square.

India's No 3 passed 5,000 Test runs on his way to a 16th Test century on a day of stifling heat at the Adelaide Oval as the tourists struggled early on before reaching 250-9 at stumps. Mohammad Shami and Jasprit Bumrah resume the action for India on day two.

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. Anything over 20 will be a bonus.

"No doubt we have lost that particular group of fans (who like day-night Tests) for this Test". Australia have also opted to field three pacers (Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood) along with a spinner (Nathan Lyon). After having lost all of his tosses in the Test series against England, Virat won the toss today and chose to bat first on a pitch that had some coverings of the grass.
