Pujara to Treat Himself to Chocolate Milkshake After Adelaide Ton

Australia coach Justin Langer, meanwhile, said India "are smelling blood" and are confident of winning their first Test series ever in Australia. Earlier in the year, when India have failed to finish the opposition off, it has been after losing the toss, which means the opposition has not been under the pressure of the scoreboard and the fourth-innings chase. After that, Travis Head along with Mitchell Starc stopped the Indian bowlers from picking any more wickets. He has also authored two cricket-related books.

Australia still trails India by 59 runs after a slow day's play, but with top-scorer Head still at the crease, it has a good chance to earn a first-innings lead on day three.

In the First day of the Test Match, Australia were spot on with the ball, as Cheteshwar Pujara held the fort for India with an incredible 127 runs innings which helped India post a Total of 250 runs in the first Innings.

Pujara faced 243 deliveries in a century of split personality.

The runs have come slowly but on Day 3, Head will remain the key. "We've been rolling our sleeves up, we've got plenty to prove as well".

KL Rahul's (2) poor run in global cricket continued as he edged an away-swinger from Josh Hazlewood to Aaron Finch at second slip. Hazlewood and Starc kept teasing Vijay and Pujara by bowling full outside off and soon reaped rewards for the consistency. On a couple occasions, he drove the ball to get the score moving but ultimately this led to his dismissal.

With tea ended Ashwin broken 22-over spell as Virat Kohli chose to introduce pace from both sides and was instantly rewarded. After all, four of Australia's top six are left-handed.

The crucial breakthrough was provided by Jasprit Bumrah as he dismissed Cumins after the introduction of the second new ball. There is no shortage of mutual respect between Nathan Lyon and Ravichandran Ashwin. Just when it looked like the storm was starting to calm down, Rahane too threw his wicket away.

Amidst all the chaos, Pujara looked solid at the other end and was willing to grit it out.

But about 90 minutes later, she and her children were seen on the US side of the border, according to the report. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Ralph DeSio said was issued to deter illegal crossings.

Ashwin then doubled the joy for the Indian camp with the wicket of the in-form Usman Khawaja (28), who got a faint bit of glove to be caught behind by stumper Rishabh Pant, only for the third umpire to certify it using the DRS. However, they will be slightly disappointed to have let India off the hook after once having them on the back-foot on 86 for five. Lyon, however, snared revenge in the very next delivery as Rohit threw away his start by playing an outrageous shot. But Rohit was dismissed for 37 and Pant, for 25.

It's been 24 years since an Australian team batted as slowly in the first innings as Tim Paine's did on day two in Adelaide.

"Cheteshwar Pujara batted a lot of time".

Pujara felt it was a decent total as the pitch was hard to bat on.

Pujara had received a great support from R Ashwin with whom he shared a 62-run stand for the 7th wicket. After Shaun Marsh gifted his wicket to him, Ashwin also sent the settled Khawaja to the pavilion before Tea.

The 30-year-old said although a majority (10) of his 16 hundreds are at home, it in no way suggests that he is more effective on Indian pitches.

".people have always said that I have scored more runs in India". The first signs of aggression came in the 84th over when he tonked Hazlewood's bouncers for a six and four in consecutive deliveries.

Conditioned into seeing foreign bowlers bleed runs at the rate of knots Down Under, what surprised many was Australia's diffidence to take the bowling on.

So, it is time for tea break on day two.
