Australian cricket team bounced back on the first day of the opening test against India on Thursday in Adelaide by taking three late wickets including captain Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, and Hanuma Vihari.
Indian skipper after winning the toss elected to bat first the guests put up a score of 233 at the loss of 6 wickets at day’s end.
The Indian team was in trouble at an early stage of the match as Prithvi Shaw was sent back to the pavilion by Mitchell Starc on the second ball of the first over of the match. Struggling in the first session, India could only manage to put up 41/2.
The team after being in trouble gained back the momentum in the next session with notable contributions from Cheteshwar Pujara (43), Kohli (74), and Rahane (42).
A cracking start, consolidation in the middle, and a drama-filled finish!
