Live Score, Ind Vs Aud, 1st Test, Day1, Pune: Cricket Score

So…. That didn’t take long. Took Ravichandran Ashwin only 5 deliveries to wrap things up. The ideal start for Virat Kohli and his men. Now, they trail by 260 runs and their main objective will be to post a big first innings total. Stay tuned as the Indians will be coming out to bat soon.

 

94.5 overs: Ravichandran Ashwin to Mitchell Starc, OUT! And it’s all over. Floated delivery, outside off, Starc kneels and slog sweeps to go over deep mid-wicket. He gets the connection but the elevation wasn’t quite there. Jadeja takes an easy catch. AUSTRALIA ARE ALL OUT FOR 260!

 

We are ready to get underway as the players and umpires have made their way out in the middle. Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood to continue with the bat, their objective will be to score as briskly as possible. Ravichandran Ashwin to start off with the ball first up…

 

Pitch Report – There are cracks and rough areas, somewhere around a short of a length, that will cause the batsmen to think about what to do. The key is to play as late as possible, as it was shown by Matt Renshaw yesterday. Playing late will allow the batsmen to play any kind of shot they want, either attack or defend. It’s a dry surface, there’s a bit more turn, a bit more exaggeration. So the advice from the centre is to play as late as possible.

 

Hello and welcome to the coverage of Day 2 of the 1st Test between India and Australia. As expected, the Pune deck started spinning from the word go. Despite that, the Australians showed grit and determination to score 256 runs at the loss of 9 wickets. At one stage, it seemed like they would be bundled out below 250 but Mitchell Starc played a counter-attacking innings and slammed his 9th Test fifty. Starc and Hazlewood are still at the centre and their aim would be to take their total close to 300. Can they do so or will India will bundle them out in the first few overs itself? We will find out soon…
