Visitors end day one with 233-6 as Virat scores his 22nd half-century

The first Test of the 4-match series between India and Australia is being played at Adelaide Oval. On Thursday, India scored 233 for 6 wickets on the first day. Ravichandran Ashwin is unbeaten on 15 and Wriddhiman Saha 9 runs at the end of the day’s play.

Captain Virat Kohli winning the toss elected to bat. In the first inning, Kohli was the highest run-getter as he scored 74 runs. This is his 22nd half-century in Test cricket. Kohli hit 8 fours in his 180-ball innings. He was run out by Nathan Lyon at the throw of Josh Hazlewood. Ajinkya Rahane was dismissed for 42 off 92 balls by Mitchell Starc through LBW. In his innings, Rahane smashed three fours and a six. Later Hanuma Vihari was dismissed by Hazlewood for 16 runs. Kohli was dismissed from a bizarre run out when Ajinkya Rahane made a wrong call for a single but failed to commit to the run. Unfortunately, Kohli turned back but could not reach his crease and he had to return to the pavilion. Later Rahane admitted his mistake and apologized to Kohli. Cheteshwar Pujara missed his half-century as he was dismissed for 43 runs in 160 balls by Lyon at the hands of Labuschagne. Mayank Agarwal scored 17 runs while Prithvi Shaw walked off the field without making any difference in the scoreboard. Stark took two wickets. Hazlewood, Cummins and Lyon took one wicket each
