  • Day 4 comes to an end and India on top now. Yes, Marsh and Head showing some fight but they have one whole day to bat and bat and bat. Can they win it? Why not if they show the same application throughout tomorrow. If not a win, they can certainly draw this and given the situation right now, Paine will take that result as well. But clearly, India ahead in the game. Don't miss the action on the last day of the match. For now, take care and good bye.

    End of day 4. Simple arithmetic. 219 runs. 6 wickets. Three sessions. Roll on, day five! 

  • After 49 overs,Australia 104/4 ( Shaun Marsh 31 , Travis Head 11)

    Stumps!

    Bumrah had shoulder pain but bowled last over of the day. There was no need to do that as his right shoulder continues to hurt him. Kohli could have given the ball to either Shami or Ishant. Why risk his injury for one over? Anyway, he bowled with a silly mid-on in place for Head as he came from round the wicket angling in to the batsman. Hosts made sure no more wicket fell. 

    When they come out to bat tomorrow, Australia will need 219 to win while India will need 6 more wickets. 

    Game, right now, tilted it favour of Indians but as they say, cricket is a game of glorious uncertainties. YOU JUST NEVER KNOW!

  • Bumrah continues. 

  • After 48 overs,Australia 104/4 ( Shaun Marsh 31 , Travis Head 11)

    Ashwin comes back on, from round the wicket this time to the lefties. Marsh looking easy now at the crease against spin. Just 1 over to go now today. Can India pick one more?

  • Ashwin back after a short break. 

  • After 47 overs,Australia 103/4 ( Shaun Marsh 31 , Travis Head 10)

    Keeping it tight is Bumrah to Marsh. He looks in some pain as he walks back to his bowling mark. Marsh adds to the pain with a boundary on the penultimate ball of the over.  

  • FOUR! Full and on pads, Marsh flicks it for four to backward of square leg. HUNDRED up for Australia. 

  • Bumrah continues. 

  • After 46 overs,Australia 99/4 ( Shaun Marsh 27 , Travis Head 10)

    Vijay almost made Head edge one into the hands of the keeper. Beautiful off-spinner from the part-timer. Good thing he is doing is that not dropping it short, a usual trait seen in the part-time bowlers. Doing a good job of filling in for Ashwin and keeping the over-rate intact. 

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist in Adelaide

    Murali Vijay to bowl now. You know India have shut shop for the day and finish the formalities tomorrow. 

  • Vijay continues. 

  • After 45 overs,Australia 93/4 ( Shaun Marsh 26 , Travis Head 5)

    Bumrah back on. His shoulder is good and this is good news for India. Bowling outswingers from round the wicket. Marsh continues to leave them. Five more overs to go. 

  • Good news as Bumrah back into the attack. 

  • After 44 overs,Australia 93/4 ( Shaun Marsh 26 , Travis Head 5)

    Murali is into the attack. Don't get too excited. Murali Vijay, it is. Bowled decent off-spinners. Pant has been chirpy all day today, says,"Yahi pakad ke daalte raho"(Keep bowling this line). Vijay does that. Just 1 off the over. 

  • Murali Vijay comes into the attack. 

  • After 43 overs,Australia 92/4 ( Shaun Marsh 25 , Travis Head 5)

    Have to say Head has been the best batsmen from Australian side in this match. Has looked very sure and clear in what he wants to do with a particular delivery. For how long can he and Marsh hang on in there is a big question.

  • FOUR! Half tracker from Shami, a rare one and Head seized the opportunity, cuts it for four to wide of third man. 

  • Shami continues. 

  • After 42 overs,Australia 87/4 ( Shaun Marsh 24 , Travis Head 1)

    Ashwin continues. Over the wicket to Head, spins it away on pitching, causing many problems to the batsman at the moment. Just 8 overs left today. 

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist in Adelaide

    Bumrah off the field clutching his left shoulder. Physio taking a look. That's the last worry India need ahead of the second Test. 

  • Ashwin continues. 

  • After 41 overs,Australia 87/4 ( Shaun Marsh 24 , Travis Head 1)

    Shami is in lovely rhythm at the moment. Running in and bowling fast. Almost made Marsh chop one on to the stumps as he tried slashing the ball through point. Another maiden from Shami, which is keeping batsmen on their toes.

  • Shami continues. 

  • After 40 overs,Australia 87/4 ( Shaun Marsh 24 , Travis Head 1)

    Australia can expect a fight here as long as Head and Marsh are there. Head batted well in the first innings. In fact, he was their best batsman in the first innings. Marsh has shown maturity in this haul so far.  

  • After 39 overs,Australia 87/4 ( Shaun Marsh 24 , Travis Head 1)

    What a spell this is from Shami, who has brought back the pace in the game. He is steaming in and bowling at good speed. Every time he runs in and bowls, chance of a wicket looks bright. 

  • Shami steaming in. 

  • After 38 overs,Australia 85/4 ( Shaun Marsh 23 , Travis Head 0)

    Bad news for India as Bumrah has injured his shoulder while fielding. He has gone off the pitch. Kohli would be there is nothing serious about it.  

  • Injury Update: Bumrah falls on his shoulders as he tried to stop a boundary and he is going off the field after feeling discomfort in his left shoulder. 

  • Ashwin continues. 

  • After 37 overs,Australia 84/4 ( Shaun Marsh 22 , Travis Head 0)

    Shami right on money from the first ball of this new spell. The first ball straightens up after pitching. He created doubts in Handscomb's mind, who tried to break the shackle with a pull shot and lost his wicket. 

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist in Adelaide

    And just when a comfortable partnership looked like forming... Handscomb has thrown it away. Pulled straight to Pujara at midwicket. Shami with the breakthrough. 14 overs to go today. First innings' hero Travis Head next. 

  • Travis Head, left handed bat, comes to the crease
     

  • OUT!

    Shami strikes, extra pace from him, pitches it short and there was a fielder placed at mid-wicket for this shot from Handscomb, who pulls it straight into the hands of the fielder. Australia lose fourth wicket. Handscomb c Pujara b Shami 14(40) 

  • Shami comes back into the attack. 

  • After 36 overs,Australia 84/3 ( Shaun Marsh 22 , Peter Handscomb 14)

    Ashwin decides to go over the wicket and straightaway gets turn and bounce. Marsh was beaten all ends up on the second ball but evaded the remaining over pretty well. 

  • Ashwin continues. 

  • After 35 overs,Australia 84/3 ( Shaun Marsh 22 , Peter Handscomb 14)

    Ishant continues. Handscomb has been very good. His defence has been rock solid. Ishant is trying hard, giving it his all at the moment. 

  • After 34 overs,Australia 84/3 ( Shaun Marsh 22 , Peter Handscomb 14)

    A sharp chance for Rahul at short leg as Handscomb hit the ball pretty hard towards his way. Cannot say it was dropped. Those catches stick. Marsh hits a beautiful cover drive for a four to make a statement that Aussies are still not out of this competition. 

  • FOUR! Fullish and Marsh hits it on the half volley, through the covers for a boundary.

  • Ashwin continues. 

  • After 33 overs,Australia 78/3 ( Shaun Marsh 17 , Peter Handscomb 13)

    Ishant continues. Both the batsmen looking well-settled now and it is important for the hosts to not lose a wicket here now. Else, the gates will be yet again opened. 

  • Ishant continues. 

  • After 32 overs,Australia 74/3 ( Shaun Marsh 16 , Peter Handscomb 10)

    Ashwin is erring in length. Need to be fuller. Both Handscomb and Marsh have been able to play him on back foot and every time the batsmen are asked to come on front foot they have looked nervous. 

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist in Adelaide

    Drinks and there are 19 overs to go. Australia will probably bat counting down the overs. Isn't that what's it about. Bet they aren't thinking about winning this at the moment. 

  • Ashwin continues. 

  • DRINKS taken.

  • After 31 overs,Australia 73/3 ( Shaun Marsh 16 , Peter Handscomb 9)

    Ishant comes back into the attack. He is looking to swing the ball in to the Handscomb. Short mid-wicket in place for a catching chance. Handscomb plays the over well. 

  • Ishant back on. 

  • After 30 overs,Australia 72/3 ( Shaun Marsh 16 , Peter Handscomb 8)

    Ashwin need to be consistently fuller in length. He is pulling his length every now and then allowing easy singles.

Day 3 report: First-innings century maker Cheteshwar Pujara again blunted Australia's attack to put India in a strong position after a rain-interrupted third day of the first India vs Australia Test on Saturday.

India reached stumps at 151 for three in its second innings, an overall lead of 166 runs. Pujara was 40 not out and Ajinkya Rahane unbeaten on one run.

Pujara shared a 71-run third-wicket partnership with captain Virat Kohli. They threatened to bat through the session before Kohli prodded to short-leg from the bowling of spinner Nathan Lyon.

Kohli made 34 from 104 deliveries but fell to Lyon for the sixth time in his test career. Kohli received a hostile reception from the Adelaide Oval crowd on his way to the crease and he was watchful against probing Australian bowling.

With footmarks to aim at, Lyon was the main threat, but Pujara successfully reviewed decisions twice from his bowling.

India's second innings was delayed due to rain interruptions either side of lunch. Openers Murali Vijay and K.L. Rahul produced a 63-run partnership, their highest outside of India. Vijay fell to Mitchell Starc for 18 and Rahul (44 off 67 balls) was dismissed just before tea by Josh Hazlewood.

The out-of-form Rahul only scored one run off his first 25 deliveries. After seeing off Starc, he opened up and counterattacked Pat Cummins, hitting a cover drive for six.

"(The match is) slightly in our favor because we have a good lead," India paceman Jasprit Bumrah said. "The first session (of day four) will be very important. If we capitalize on that, we will be in a very good place in this match."

India had a first-innings lead of 15 runs after bowling out Australia for 235. After sweltering conditions during the opening two days, only 10.4 overs were bowled in the first session.

Travis Head top-scored for Australia with 72 and equaled his highest test score. He received invaluable support from Lyon, who hit an unbeaten 24 from 28 balls.

India's four-pronged attack shared the wickets with Bumrah and spinner Ravichandran Ashwin picking up three apiece.

Head said the wicket of Kohli gave Australia hope.

"It was a nice little wicket there at the end," Head said. "I thought the bowlers did a great job of containing and continuing to put pressure on. It makes for a big hour (to start day four)."

Australia resumed day three at 191 for 7, but it was Lyon who stole the show after the early wicket of Starc. Lyon dominated the strike in his partnership with Head and counterattacked with a six off a hook shot from Mohammed Shami's first delivery.

Two balls later, Head played away from his body to be caught behind and Hazlewood fell first ball, leaving Shami on a hat trick when Australia bats in its second innings.

A crowd of 30,348 braved the inclement conditions to record the second highest attendance for a day's play between the teams in Adelaide.

Sixteen overs were lost on day three after the rain delays. Days four and five will start 30 minutes earlier.
