Pujara departs for 123 as India end with 250/8

India vs Australia Flashback Look At Top Five Test Clashes

Officials in Australia said they were anxious after a modest 23,802 turned out for the opening day of the Test series in Adelaide on Thursday, the lowest day-one attendance since the venue was redeveloped in 2013.

Pujara continues to collects runs at quick pace, while going for more attacking shots such as the uppercut.

Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar lashed out at the approach of Indian batsmen on Day 1 of the first Test against Australia in Adelaide.

This was after India won the toss and opted to bat on a warm day at the Adelaide Oval. To follow up, Vijay did the same as if it was a replay shown but with a change in bowler as this time it was Starc who forced Vijay to nick that tempting delivery outside-off. He was dismissed by Josh Hazlewood in the second over of the match; Aaron Finch took his catch in the slip cordon. The move yielded rich dividends in Pat Cummins' first over. "So hopefully, personally I can keep swinging the ball around and being that bit more consistent than I have been in the past", he said. However, Usman Khawaja had other ideas as he leapt full length to his length and plucked the catch with one hand to put himself as the No.1 contender for catch of the summer already.

"To be honest, we should have batted better but they also bowled well in the first two sessions and I knew that I had to stay patient and wait for the loose balls", Pujara said.

Oil producers appeared to be coalescing around a plan to remove 1.3 million barrels per day from the market earlier in the week. The price of oil has fallen about 25 percent because major producers - including the USA - are pumping oil at high rates.

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.

Spinner Nathan Lyon struck twice to expose India's tail after lunch, having Rohit Sharma slog-sweep to a fielder for 37 before Pant fell for 25 feathering an edge behind.

Cheteshwar Pujara (46) and Ravichandran Ashwin (5) were at the crease when the tea was declared. It is worth just 26 runs, but these two have have together faced 87 deliveries. When he top-edged Hazlewood over the fine leg fence, the Saurashtra batsman went past 5000 runs and entered an elite club.

A closer examination reveals major issues, for he has failed to reach double figures in his past six innings (top score of seven) and has only done so twice in his past 10 knocks. However, Cummins swooped to his right and fired an under-arm throw at the bowler's end to catch Pujara short.

There were 55,000 for day one of the Ashes opener in Adelaide last year, 32,255 on the corresponding day against South Africa a year earlier and 47,441 for the first year against New Zealand, the CA stated.
