Pat Cummins Just Nailed One Of The Best Run Outs You'll See

Virat Kohli looms large for India

Australia grabbed three early wickets, including the prized scalp of star batsman Virat Kohli, to have India on the ropes early on the opening day of the first Test in Adelaide.

It was doubly frustrating for Kohli, who had needed just eight to reach 1,000 Test runs for India in Australia. Australia have also opted to field three pacers (Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood) along with a spinner (Nathan Lyon).

The India number three battled a hamstring strain late in the day but was a rock even as his partners crumbled around him, pushing India to 250 for nine at the close with a brutal assault on the second new ball.

"We got the wickets the way we thought we might get the wickets", he told the Seven Network.

The Test series is Australia's first on home soil since the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa and the hosts started strongly, with India slumping to 86-5 after lunch, before Pujara's resistance and contributions from Rohit Sharma (37), Rishabh Pant (25) and Ravi Ashwin (25) helped the tourists stage a fightback. In the meantime, the man from Rajkot brought up his first Test ton in Australia.

Australian bowling coach David Saker said it was a premeditated plan for the quicks to pitch it up and lure India's batsmen into false shots.

"It was a good little momentum-goer too, because we got a couple of early (wickets)".

In the sixth ball of the very second over, Rahul needlessly poked at a widely moving ball only to edge it straight to third slip and go for 2 runs.

Veteran Murali Vijay, in the side after young gun Prithvi Shaw suffered ankle ligament damage in a warm-up game, didn't last much longer, caught behind by skipper Tim Paine off Starc for 11.

It was stunning one-handed take by Khawaja, whose preparations were upset by the shock arrest of his brother this week for allegedly framing a love-rival with a fake terror plot.

But after returning from a break, Hazlewood enticed Rahane into a drive and he edged it to Handscomb, who took the catch above his head at slip and he was gone for 13. They slid further when Rohit Sharma holed out attempting a slog off Lyon.
