Australia vs India 1st Test: Marcus Harris debut brings mother to tears

Kohli falls as Australia strikes put India on ropes

India's innings shouldn't go for much longer in the morning but the Australians will feel they let slip a great opportunity to take command of the first Test on day one. There was one run out - that of the big wicket in Cheteshwar Pujara who was the standout performer with 123 runs.

Australia grabbed three early wickets, including the prized scalp of star batsman Virat Kohli, to have India on the ropes early on the opening day of the first Test in Adelaide.

Cummins provided the breakthrough of Ashwin just before the second new ball.

Unbroken by fierce pace bowling, Pujara was dismissed by a piece of brilliant fielding, with Pat Cummins throwing down the stumps to leave the batsman well short of his ground.

"I don't think we've seen a quarter of what that boy can do".

Illinois surveys damage after rare December tornadoes
The National Weather Service said that 12 tornadoes hit near Peoria, Illinois , on Saturday, causing major damage. At least 13 tornadoes downed power lines and flipped cars in the hardest hit areas of central IL .

On a two-paced surface that offered good bounce and carry, Josh Hazlewood drew first blood by sending back the shaky KL Rahul, who drove loosely from outside his off stump without moving his feet and was well caught by Aaron Finch at third slip.

"Playing in England, conditions are always challenging and when you come to Australia, you know that pitches are slightly better and as I said, I had decent time to prepare before the Test series", he said.

It was stunning one-handed take by Khawaja, whose preparations were upset by the shock arrest of his brother this week for allegedly framing a love-rival with a fake terror plot.

Ajinkya Rahane also couldn't contribute and became Hazlewood's second victim for 13 runs. 25-year-old Hanuma Vihar, who made his debut at the Kennington Oval against England, was called up to the 12-member squad, although India chose to field Sharma instead. Just when he was making it look so easy, Rohit committed hara-kiri and holed out to Harris at deep square-leg after having been reprieved by the same fielder on the boundary off Lyon's previous delivery.

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.
