Pujara and Virat handled the innings
Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara took charge of the Indian innings after two quick wickets fell. Both the batsmen were leading the Indian innings with restraint.

Cheteshwar Pujara filled 160 balls and Pujara hit just two fours throughout the innings.
Huge run out
Virat continued his batting with restraint and scored the 23rd half century of his Test career. Virat and Rahane had a good partnership and both combined for 88 for the fourth wicket. Rahane hit the last ball of the 77th over and signaled for Virat to run but Rahane stopped and Virat was slowly scoring a century. Virat’s wicket fell on the team’s score of 188 runs.

Middle-order batsman Hanuma Vihari, who hit an unbeaten century in the second practice match, also failed to make his mark and was dismissed cheaply. Vihari was lbw by Josh Hazlewood and sent to the pavilion. He hit 16 off 25 balls with the help of two fours.
The responsibility of bringing India’s first innings to a strong score is now on the shoulders of Saha and Ashwin. Both the batsmen will be looking to reach the big score by scoring many runs on the second day, while the Australian bowlers will keep an eye on the Indian team’s opening innings.
