Pujara keeps India afloat on day of brilliant Aussie fielding

Pujara keeps India afloat on day of brilliant Aussie fielding”

The first Test between Australia and India is being telecast on Sony Sports Network.

India were in danger of being bowled out cheaply after reckless batting in the opening two sessions, but Pujara scored 123 runs as India reached stumps on 250-9.

The experienced number three did what he has done many times before and stood his ground as wickets tumbled around him, including superstar Virat Kohli for three, with India stumbling to 143-6 at tea on day one. The Board of Control for Cricket in India refused Cricket Australia's request for the series opener to be played under lights.

What time does the second day of the first Test between India and Australia begin?

It was stunning one-handed take by Khawaja, whose preparations were upset by the shock arrest of his brother this week for allegedly framing a love-rival with a fake terror plot.

Talking about the run-out, Starc said: "It was a special moment for him, especially after a long day in the field". It's nice when they do stick, ' said Khawaja. The Saurashtra right-hander has given the blueprint for the rest of the batsmen to follow after another poor show by the top order after Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bat.

Past issues between the teams prompted one website to chronicle the "13 Ugliest India-Australia Controversies". The bilateral relationship eroded in that series when an Australian player said he was racially vilified by an India player during a test match in Sydney. Meanwhile, Aaron Finch and Marcus Harris will open the home side's batting order, with Usman Khwaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Travis Head and captain-wicketkeeper Paine making up the batting unit in that respective order.

"It was tough in the heat but once we were seven down, I had to accelerate and play my shots", Pujara said. He had scored three centuries in his previous two tests in Adelaide.

India (one to be omitted): Virat Kohli (captain), Ajinkya Rahane, K L Rahul, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rohit Sharma, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah.
