Day 1 report: Ajinkya Rahane knocked out his captain Virat Kohli after a horror mess, sparking a mini slump to give Australia an advantage over India after a busy opening day of the first Day Test at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday.
Master hitter Kohli went well on his way to a 28th century trial after warming up to stabilize the ship when it hit 32 for two.
But in the final session of the day, Rahane pushed to a Nathan Lyon delivery and fled, only to save himself, leaving Kohli stranded in the middle of the field after his 74th battle.
He ruined a fight recovery from India that lost Prithvi Shaw to a fiery Mitchell Starc in the first over of the day and was struggling when Pat Cummins caught Mayank Agarwal.
To make matters worse, Rahane fell for 42 soon after and then Hanuma Vihari went for 16, leaving visitors on 233 for six at close and Australia responsible for the first Test that both sides have played since the beginning of the year. due to the coronavirus. pandemic.
Wriddhiman Saha was not out nine and Ravi Ashwin was undefeated at 15.
Starc was the choice of Aussie bowlers with 2-49, with Josh Hazlewood, Cummins and Lyon all taking one each.
“We are very happy with where we are, but we still have a lot of work to do,” said Lyon.
“Obviously he (Kohli) was hitting very well, so pretty happy with that. Obviously a wicket like that, or a run out especially Virat Kohli, was huge.”
A stubborn Cheteshwar Pujara (43 from 160 balls) and Kohli had led the counterattack.
Kohli, in his only test before returning home for the birth of his first child, was lucky to survive on five, thrusting a short ball off the bat-pad from Cummins bowling, with Matthew Wade failing to put hands under the ball.
He also benefited from what appeared to be a mistake by Tim Paine who chose not to review a hold behind, which replays have shown may have come out of his glove.
Undaunted, Kohli raised a stubborn half-century 23rd test with a single Cummins in front of a coronavirus-limited crowd.
Twilight should be the hardest time to hit in a day-night test with the ball whizzing faster than normal, but Kohli seemed calm until Rahane collapsed.
“We were in a great position,” Pujara said.
“But I feel there are only six of us, Ash can beat, Saha can beat, even our lower order will try to contribute as many runs as possible.”
“So we still have a very good chance of getting close to 275, 300 and you never know we can even get to 350,” he added.
Lyon took a big step forward by removing Pujara, whose 123 and 71 put India for 31 runs
