Australia vs India 1st Test: Marcus Harris debut brings mother to tears

Australia vs India 1st Test: Marcus Harris debut brings mother to tears

It was doubly frustrating for Kohli, who had needed just eight to reach 1,000 Test runs for India in Australia.

"I think if you asked us at the start of the day if we'd take losing the toss and India being 9 for 250 at stumps I think we'd bite your arm off", he added.

The only Indian to bat with any surety and patience on the grassy surface, Pujara's 16th Test century reinforced his status as one of the world's most understated batsmen and a solid presence in a frenetic top order.

Spin king Lyon had 2-51 and Hazlewood 2-28 with Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins claiming one wicket apiece.

Batting after Kohli won the toss, the visitors crumbled in a disastrous morning session under a pace barrage before digging in later in the day with Pujara and Ravi Ashwin (25 off 76 balls) staging a fightback as the bowlers exhausted.

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

The 26-year-old was impressive on his Test debut in Adelaide, occupying the crease for almost two hours as he blunted the Indian new ball bowlers, all under the watchful eye of his loved ones.

Kohli and Paine facing brutal issue on first day of Test series
Handscomb is set to bat at No.5 for Australia while opener Marcus Harris will become Australia's 456th male Test cricketer. The previous series between the two rivals have been heated, with the combative Kohli usually front and centre.

Former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar was not impressed with Rahul's outing in the first Test and he believes that the opener should be dropped from the team if he fails to perform in the second innings.

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 to Handscomb in the slips for 13.

Spinner Nathan Lyon struck twice to expose India's tail after lunch, having the recalled Rohit Sharma slog-sweep to a fielder for 37 before Pant fell for 25 feathering an edge behind.

Pujara then enjoyed 41-run and 62-run partnerships with Pant and Ashwin respectively before the 30-year-old, playing his 65th Test, was run out by Cummins, who along with Hazlewood and Starc each picked up two wickets.
