17:12 (IST)

So that's all for today. We will catch you tomorrow for another exciting day of Test cricket. See you!

17:09 (IST)

Team India take the advantage at the end of second day's action. The bowlers put out a good show today, ensuring Australia get bowled for 191 in reply to India's 244. The hosts total would've been a lot less if not for a fighting knock from their captain Tim Paine. Shaw failed again but Bumrah's batting stole the limelight in the final few minutes of the day. Australian bowlers need to come out good tomorrow if they want to snatch the Test. India will look to bat the entire day tomorrow.  

17:02 (IST)

After 6 overs,India 9/1 ( Mayank Agarwal 5 , Jasprit Bumrah 0)

Rock solid defense from Bumrah against the mighty Pat Cummins. Yes, Bumrah's batting has improved a lot. He showed in the warm up game and he showed it now as well. So, that's the end of Day Two. India lead by 62 runs. 

17:01 (IST)

What's wrong with Shaw?

16:59 (IST)

After 5 overs,India 9/1 ( Mayank Agarwal 5 , Jasprit Bumrah 0)

Mitchell Starc continues. There's movement for the left-arm pacer. Starc tries a yorker but Mayank plays it well. He pushes the final ball in the gap on the off-side and runs two. So Bumrah will be on strike the next over.    

16:54 (IST)

After 4 overs,India 7/1 ( Mayank Agarwal 3 , Jasprit Bumrah 0)

Well, well. Jasprit Bumrah is the nightwatchman. Shaw becomes a victim to his technical fault once again. He knew Aussies will be exploiting his weakness so he had to be very careful. But looks like he hasn't worked on this issue. Meanwhile, Bumrah survives five balls from Cummins. Well done.  

16:50 (IST)

Stumps are shattered!

Big gap between bat and pad and it's a very familiar dismissal for Shaw. Cummins strikes! Prithvi Shaw b Cummins 4(4)

16:49 (IST)

After 3 overs,India 7/0 ( Prithvi Shaw 4 , Mayank Agarwal 3)

Another close chance. The ball doesn't come to the bat, Mayank reaches out and almost hands a catch to the fielder at short mid-on. He is living dangerously. Good leave in the final ball. Probing over from Starc.  

16:45 (IST)

After 2 overs,India 7/0 ( Prithvi Shaw 4 , Mayank Agarwal 3)

Pat Cummins to Shaw. Full and onto the pads, the batsman is watchful. Similar second ball, this time Shaw plays a confident push straight down the ground. The ball doesn't have the legs to reach the fence so three runs to the batsman. Cummins goes full, almost a yorker to Mayank. The batsman gets his bat to the ball and runs two. Cummins forces an edge off Mayank, Paine dives to his left but he misses it. That's a superb delivery and big reprieve for Mayank.

16:39 (IST)

After 1 overs,India 1/0 ( Prithvi Shaw 1 , Mayank Agarwal 0)

Starc starts off with an ordinary ball. Down the leg, Shaw just pushes it to fine-leg and gets off the mark. Mayank stays on the crease and blocks the next delivery. The fourth ball comes back in, hits the pads but definitely missing the stumps. Mayank does well in the over. Just one from this one.

India vs Australia 2020 Live score and latest update of 1st Test at Adelaide: Team India take the advantage at the end of second day's action. The bowlers put out a good show today, ensuring Australia get bowled for 191 in reply to India's 244. The hosts total would've been a lot less if not for a fighting knock from their captain Tim Paine. Shaw failed again but Bumrah's batting stole the limelight in the final few minutes of the day. Australian bowlers need to come out good tomorrow if they want to snatch the Test. India will look to bat the entire day tomorrow.

Day 1 report: Ajinkya Rahane ran out his captain Virat Kohli after a horror mix-up, sparking a mini collapse to gift Australia an advantage over India after an intense opening day of the day-night first Test at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday.

Master batsman Kohli looked on track for a 28th Test century after knuckling down to steady the ship when he came in at 32 for two.

But in the final session of the day, Rahane pushed at a Nathan Lyon delivery and made to run, only to bail out, leaving Kohli stranded in the middle of the pitch after his battling 74.

It spoiled a fighting recovery from India who lost Prithvi Shaw to a fiery Mitchell Starc in the first over of the day and were struggling when Pat Cummins snared Mayank Agarwal.

To make matters worse, Rahane fell for 42 soon after and then Hanuma Vihari went for 16, leaving the visitors on 233 for six at the close and Australia in charge of the first Test either side has played since early in the year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Wriddhiman Saha was not out nine and Ravi Ashwin unbeaten on 15.

Starc was the pick of the Australian bowlers with 2-49, with Josh Hazlewood, Cummins and Lyon all getting one each.

"We're very happy with where we're at, but still have a lot of work to do," said Lyon.

"Obviously he (Kohli) was batting extremely well so pretty happy with that one. Obviously a wicket like that, or a run out especially Virat Kohli, was massive."

A dogged Cheteshwar Pujara (43 from 160 balls) and Kohli had led the fightback.

Kohli, in his only Test before heading home for the birth of his first child, was fortunate to survive on five, nudging a short ball off bat-pad from Cummins' bowling, with Matthew Wade just failing to get his hands underneath the ball.

He also benefited from what appeared to be a blunder by Tim Paine opting not to review a catch behind, which replays showed may have come off his glove.

Undeterred, Kohli brought up a stubborn 23rd Test half-century with a single off Cummins in front of a coronavirus-limited crowd.

Twilight is supposed to be the toughest time to bat in a day-night Test with the ball zipping around more than normal, but Kohli looked untroubled until Rahane's meltdown.

"We were in a very good position," said Pujara.

"But I feel we are just six down, Ash can bat, Saha can bat, even our lower order will try and 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 get 350 also," he added.

Spectacular start

Lyon earlier got a big breakthrough by removing Pujara, whose 123 and 71 set up India for a 31-run

India vs Australia, Highlights, 4th Test at Brisbane, Day 2, Full Cricket Score: Play abandoned due to wet outfield as visitors trail by 307 runs

So the whole last session has been lost and the officials have decided to make up for it by resuming the game half an earlier tomorrow. Day 2 honours should go to India. With an inexperienced bowling attack, they restricted Australian first innings to 369 after the hosts resumed innings today at 274/5. Rohit batted well for his 44 before his attacking style of play led to his fall, yet again. Pujara and Rahane have looked assured in the middle and India, trailing by 307, need them to carry on for long.The coverage starts tomorrow at 4 am and remember the game resumes at 5 am and not 5.30 am IST. Take care and good-bye.

India vs Australia, Full Cricket Score, 4th Test at Brisbane, Day 5, Highlights: Pant masterclass guides visitors to memorable series win

What a tour this has been! To bounce back after MCG’s horror 36-all out, draw the Sydney Test and win at Gabba, Australia’s fortress, just shows the character of this team. And India were without Kohli, Bumrah, Shami, Ashwin, Jadeja. Still, to win by a 2-1 scoreline in Australia’s backyard teaches you a lesson – never write off this new-age Indian cricket team. India have plenty of reserves, each individual hungry to prove his mettle. In that respect, as Harsha Bhogle said, due credit must be given to the "finishing school that Rahul Dravid is." That’s it from us today. We hope you enjoyed our coverage of India’s Australia tour. This is Sameer Chhabra and Shubham Pandey signing off. Adios.
