1st Test: India score 250/9 against Australia on Day 1 in Adelaide

Adelaide: India registered a score of 250 runs for the loss of nine wickets at stumps on day one of the first Test against Australia on Thursday.

This was largely possible due to a 246 ball 123 by Cheteshwar Pujara who delivered a stunning performance.

Pujara initially enjoyed the support of Rohit Sharma who seemed to be in good nick. However, the latter perished when India seemed set to dominate the clash following a poor shot off a Nathan Lyon delivery.

 Pujara never lost hope, stitching vital partnerships with the likes of Rishabh Pant and Ravichandran Ashwin. The batsman kept battling it out despite their dismissals, registering a well-deserved hundred.

India will be looking to deliver a good performance with the ball, after posting a respectable on the board.

Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Nathon Lyon picked two wickets apiece for the hosts in a sensational show with the ball.
