    Live Updates IND vs AUS, 1st Test Day 2: Superlative bowling from India. They have bowled 88 overs, picked up 7 wickets and conceded runs at just over 2 an over. The tourists were loose in the first session, not quite hitting the right lines but post Lunch, they hit their spot. They did not concede many easy runs and the hosts had to work so hard that 250 looked like 400.

    How many times have we seen Ravichandran Ashwin do well outside Asia? Today was one of those few occasions. He was the one who opened the floodgates, getting rid of Harris, Marsh and Khawaja in the space of 57 balls. That pegged the Aussies back and then later on, Bumrah and Ishant made further inroads. Mohammed Shami had an off day – he seemed to have hurt his shoulder and lost control totally.

    Live Cricket Score, IND vs AUS 1st Test Day 2: India’s day but Australia are hanging in there. After battling out two tough sessions, the final one seemed the easiest to bat with the ball getting softer. 74 runs came in 33 overs but three wickets were also lost. Talking about the day overall, Australia just had to come out for one ball, with Hazlewood getting rid of Shami. But Ishant then gave India a terrific start, removing Finch on the third ball. There was a bit of a fight, from debutant Marcus Harris and Usman Khawaja, with a 45-run stand – but once that was broken, familiar problems grappled the Aussies.

Australia vs India 1st Test Day 2 Highlights Adelaide: India had the slight edge in a sedately-paced battle of attrition after senior off-spinner R Ashwin cleaned up the Australian top-order and a meticulous pace effort kept the home team’s scoring in check on the second day of the opening Test in Adelaide. Travis Head (61 batting) and Pat Cummins (10) kept Australia in the game with a 50-run partnership in the last session but India walked away with the advantage after the latter fell towards the end of day’s play.

At stumps, Australia were 191/7 in 88 overs with Ashwin being their primary tormentor, securing figures of 3/50 in 33 overs. He was aided well by the pace duo of Jasprit Bumrah (2/34) and Ishant Sharma (2/31). Mitchell Starc (8 batting) was giving Head company at close of play with Australia trailing by 59 runs against India’s first innings effort of 250 all out, the highlight of which was Cheteshwar Pujara’s fighting hundred.

Post-tea the hosts lost two wickets for 10 runs in a passage of play spanning eight overs. It was credit to Indian bowling that it kept the runs in check and regular inroads into the Australian line-up meant that they were never really out of pressure. Peter Handscomb (34) had been living dangerously and he was the first to fall. He tried to play the late cut against Bumrah but only managed to edge behind.
