Kohli falls as Australia strikes put India on ropes

Cheteshwar Pujara reaches 5000 runs Kohli falls as Australia strikes put India on ropes
Frederick Owens | 07 December, 2018, 06:58

Pujara's 16th test century saved India after a disastrous start that saw them slump to 86 for five after lunch, falling to a combination of awful shot-making and quality Australian pace after captain Virat Kohli won the toss.

He also completed 5000 runs in Test cricket in his 65th match and 108th innings, becoming only the 12th Indian batsman to do so.

But credit to Cummins, who displayed remarkable agility despite it being the end of a hot day in Adelaide. Their top-order batsmen brought about their own downfall by attempting expansive drives only to be caught in the slip cordon.

Starc removed Murali Vijay for a streaky 11, the recalled batsman edging another rash shot behind to Tim Paine.

Kohli, who looked busy and purposeful during his short stay in the middle, looked well on his way to becoming Cummins" "bunny' when the pacer dismissed him with his third delivery of the day.

Kohli couldn't resist the temptation to drive a full and wide delivery from Cummins and was done in by the extra bounce. But it was more of a fielder's wicket as Usman Khawaja at gully pulled out a spectacular catch to dismiss Kohli.

Aided by a hint of bounce and movement, Australia's trio of quick bowlers did all the damage in a fiery opening session before Nathan Lyon took over after lunch.

Australia took just a single ball to wrap up the Indian innings this morning, with Mohammed Shami caught down the legside off Josh Hazlewood, to end India's innings at the overnight score of 250.

Batting after Kohli won the toss, the visitors crumbled in a disastrous morning session under a pace barrage before digging in later in the day with Pujara and Ravi Ashwin (25 off 76 balls) staging a fightback as the bowlers exhausted.

Sharma then needlessly tried the same shot on the next ball, and this time debutant Marcus Harris comfortably collected the steepling catch, with the right-hander once more failing to capitalise on a good start. Rishabh Pant contributed a comical 25 off 38 balls as he played, missed, edged, connected and misconnected before feathering one off Lyon to Paine behind the stumps.

India will resume at 9-250, having crashed to to 3-19 then 6-127 before Pujara rallied with help from the tail.
