AUSTRALIA V INDIA FIRST TEST SNAPSHOT:
STATE OF PLAY: India 9-250 at stumps on day one at Adelaide Oval.
MAN OF THE DAY: Cheteshwar Pujara. The first drop scores a ton of resistance, compiling his 16th Test century and holding India’s innings together. The 30-year-old arrived at the crease after just two overs and departed, run out for 123 from 246 deliveries, in the 88th over on what became the last ball of the day
KEY MOMENT: Usman Khawaja, fielding at gully, dives full stretch to his left and takes a stunning one-handed catch to dismiss Virat Kohli. India’s hero made just three runs with Khawaja’s moment of sheer brilliance leaving the visitors wobbling at 3-19
STAT OF THE DAY: Six. The number of Indian batsmen caught behind the wicket, the dismissals coming through a mix of poor shot selection and superb execution of astute planning by Australia’s bowlers
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “You don’t take too many catches like that so it was a lot of fun.” Khawaja.
