Cool Head keeps Australia alive in India Test

Cheteshwar Pujara reaches 5000 runs

In reply to India's first innings of 250, Australia reached stumps at 191 for seven, with Head 61 not out and Mitchell Starc unbeaten on 8.

The pair carved out Australia's first 50-run partnership, with Head cutting a Murali Vijay delivery through the covers for a single to bring up his fifty and trigger a roar from the sun-baked terraces.

The incident took place in the 58th over of Australia's innings on the second day.

Virat Kohli later handed Ashwin the second new ball but the gun offspinner couldn't prise out Head or Mitchell Starc.

The temperature in Adelaide neared 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) but cloud cover provided favourable conditions for India's attack.

"But they also bowled well in the first two sessions".

"Adelaide generally offers a bit of spin but looking at the grass that was there yesterday, we didn't think we will get the little bit of hold we are getting". "I feel it's extremely well-poised and every run is going to be gold dust here". "I would say it is kind of a two-paced pitch, and it is not easy to bat on", he added.

The hard-hitting Finch drove loosely at a full delivery and inside-edged onto his stumps, which went cartwheeling.

India centurion Cheteshwar Pujara admits his teammates should have known better after gifting Australia four cheap wickets on day one of the first Test in Adelaide.

Ashwin then doubled the joy for the Indian camp with the wicket of the in-form Usman Khawaja (28), who got a faint bit of glove to be caught behind by stumper Rishabh Pant, only for the third umpire to certify it using the DRS.

The last time these two sides met in the Test arena, the Indian skipper endured his worst ever series, scoring 46 runs at an average of 9.20 across five innings before a shoulder injury ruled him out of last year's Fourth Test against Australia.

However, with Prithvi Shaw injured and the team management not having named any replacement for him yet, Rahul might just have another opportunity to showcase his mettle even if he fails in the second innings.

Explaining Marsh's omission, Paine said: "We know he's good enough to be a great all-rounder at Test level but hasn't quite put it together at Test level yet". "It was a tough day but we fought well and I think we are in a decent position". He was aided well by the pace duo of Jasprit Bumrah (2/34) and Ishant Sharma (2/31). He received treatment on his left shoulder just before lunch and briefly left the field.

Having wrapped up India's innings with the first ball of the day, the top order was nearly as quick to blow Australia's advantage.

And without rancour, Pujara drew attention to the insinuation about him only flourishing in India: "People have always said that I have scored more runs in India, but you also need to look at the number of matches we play in India".
