Cheteshwar Pujara stands tall amidst shoddy Indian batting — Twitter Reactions

Kohli falls as Australia strikes put India on ropes

Indian batsman Cheteshwar Pujara looked like nothing would get through him all day as he made his way to a terrific century.

In the process he passed 5,000 Test runs for his 16th Test century, even as the wickets tumbled around him, including superstar captain Virat Kohli for three.

The tourists were 9-250 at stumps, thanks largely to a determined 123 from Pujara, whose patience was in stark contrast to India's other big-name batsmen.

Rohit Sharma outdid Rahane after lunch, holing out in the deep in a poorly executed attempt to repeat the six he had hit off Nathan Lyon's previous delivery. Australian media, quoting police sources, said Arsalan Khawaja was being questioned about forgery and an attempt to pervert justice, but had never meant to commit a terrorism offense.

Chelsea and Arsenal were tied on 31 points in fourth, still eight clear of United in eighth. United hit back just four minutes later, though.


"It was a good little momentum-goer too, because we got a couple of early (wickets)". "As a captain, it will be an opportunity to leave a legacy and be the first Indian team to beat Australia in Australia".

The visitors received the first blow in the second over when Josh Hazlewood had KL Rahul caught at the third slip.

Veteran Murali Vijay, in the side after young gun Prithvi Shaw suffered ankle ligament damage, didn't last much longer, caught behind by skipper Tim Paine off Starc for 11.

Cummins provided the breakthrough of Ashwin just before the second new ball. "I also felt that our top order should have batted better but they will learn from the mistakes", he said.

Trump has often aimed political taunts at the Bush family, long a symbol of the traditional, more moderate wing of the U.S. The pair quickly bonded, with the former president even buying socks in honor of his beloved companion.


"To be honest, we should have batted better but they also bowled well in those first two sessions", Pujara told reporters.

But after returning from a break, Hazlewood enticed Rahane into a drive and he edged it to Handscomb, who took the catch above his head at slip and he was gone for 13.

It was left to Pujara, in his 65th Test, to stay at the crease and keep chipping away, building a 41-run partnership with Rishabh Pant and then 62 with Ashwin before he was run out by Cummins.

Rohit Sharma, preferred in the final XI to all-rounder Hanuma Vihari, compiled a patient 31 before sweeping Lyon for six, narrowly missing being caught on the ropes.
