After a poor first session which saw the fall of four wickets, Pujara and Rohit Sharma tried to stem the rot with a partnership of 45 runs. The match can be seen live on the Sony Network and live streaming will be available on SonyLiv. It was credit to Indian bowling that it kept the runs in check and regular inroads into the Australian line-up meant that they were never really out of pressure.
The senior off-spinner bowled an incisive spell that tied down the Australian batsmen. He then followed it up with a lofted front foot drive over deep cover for a yet another six and it looked like India were slowly getting back on track. He was later released on bail. 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. "Out of respect for the process it'd be inappropriate for me to make any further comments".
In their first home Test since the ball-tampering scandal in March, Australia took four wickets before lunch with the batsmen guilty of playing at deliveries they would have been better off leaving alone.
Australian bowling coach David Saker confirmed it had been a premeditated plan for the quicks to pitch it up and lure India's batsmen into false shots.
And most of the previous series have history. The original not out decision was overturned on replay after a review from India captain Virat Kohli.

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.
Kohli said the series might be played in a better spirit than the last tour but there was always a place for chatter. Umpire gave it not out, Indian went for DRS, they were convinced that Khawaja has edged it. Replays confirm he gloved it while looking to play a defensive shot. "Whatever happened (in Cape Town). the skill level is still there. We're not taking anything for granted". Second Test half-century for the left-hander.
Peter Handscomb will bat at number five and Travis Head at number six while Marcus Harris will open alongside Aaron Finch. 25-year-old Hanuma Vihar, who made his debut at the Kennington Oval against England, was called up to the 12-member squad, although India chose to field Sharma instead.
There were mitigating circumstances with temperatures in Adelaide hitting a stifling 40 degrees but Roberts blamed it on fewer inter-state visitors who would have come for a night-time spectacle.
