  • Time for us to wrap. Fascinating day of Test cricket awaits us tomorrow. Pretty much an even day. With the final session shared after the morning session went the hosts' way, while India clawed back post Lunch. Some batting to come, few wickets to be taken in the first innings and lots of drama beckons. Join us at 6:15 am IST for all the action on Day two, until then goodbye.

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist in Perth

    Loud shout from Bumrah to end the day but seemed like a bottom edge that saved Tim Paine. Australia finish with 277-6 and the match hangs in balance after this first day's play. India just about fought back after the morning session and haven't let them get away. 


  • Close of play – Day 1

    Another see-saw day of cricket. Pretty good for an inaugural day of Test cricket at the new Perth. Nothing like our good ole WACA, but the drop in pitch has offered enough to be interested about. 

    Runs on offer. Nice carry, slightly uneven bounce that keeps both the batsmen on their toes and bowlers interested.

    That rip-snoter from Bumrah to Tim Paine with the second new ball will remain in memory for a long, long time. Forget Tim Paine, I might have nightmare of it. However, the Australian captain survived that delivery and remained unbeaten till the end of the day.

    India have their task cut out for the second day – which is wipe out the Australian, if possible before 300.

  • After 90 overs,Australia 277/6 ( Tim Paine (C)(W) 16 , Pat Cummins 11)

    That will be stumps on the first day of Test cricket at the new Perth stadium. Cummins is beaten by a probing delivery from Bumrah, tell you what, Cummins did well by not nicking it. Bumrah hits the splice of Cummins' bat with an attempted yorker that goes wrong. Narrow escape right at the end as Cummins gets some bat before the ball crashes into the pads. Replays confirm it was the bottom edge. Good start for the second Test, with 277/6 on board Australia will be marginally happy.

  • After 89 overs,Australia 277/6 ( Tim Paine (C)(W) 16 , Pat Cummins 11)

    Cummins has shown good resolute with the bat once again. He collects three runs off the bat off the penultimate over of the day. Umpire Dharmasena calls Shami's short ball wide for height. Five coming off it.

  • After 88 overs,Australia 272/6 ( Tim Paine (C)(W) 15 , Pat Cummins 8)

    Cummins with delectable push through mid wicket for three and Paine pulls Bumrah from over his head for only a single. Didn't catch it in the middle. Four runs off it. Couple of overs to remaining in the day.

  • Jigar Mehta, Firstpost

    Australia are very close to squandering a good start. While the Indian bowlers have bounced back, the Australian batsmen have been guilty of poor shot selection. Haris went for a cut and was caught behind and so did Shaun Marsh, giving away wicket to part-time spinner Hanuma Vihari. Finch played across the line and was trapped LBW, Handscomb, Khawaja and Head all went for a slash outside off and were faltered. All six wickets thrown away. Paine needs to stabilise now.

  • After 87 overs,Australia 268/6 ( Tim Paine (C)(W) 14 , Pat Cummins 6)
     

    Paine is solid in defence after Cummins turns the strike to his skipper. Only a single off Umesh's over.

  • Umesh Yadav continues

  • After 86 overs,Australia 267/6 ( Tim Paine (C)(W) 14 , Pat Cummins 5)

    Bumrah bowls a toe crusher to Cummins and there is a stifled appeal for leg before. Not given and no review taken. Was sliding down the leg side. Three singles off the over, which comprised once again some absolute peach that went past the edge. Bumrah right at the fag end of the day still clocking over 145.

  • After 85 overs,Australia 264/6 ( Tim Paine (C)(W) 13 , Pat Cummins 3)

    Umesh Yadav comes back into attack and concedes seven runs. A double and single for Cummins and then a four off a beautiful drive for Piane. Meanwhile, Ishant Sharma is sitting at the sideline, was seen stretching a little bit. 

  • FOUR! Paine creams Yadav for a four. Plays it backward square leg.

  • Umesh Yadav comes into attack to replace Ishant Sharma, who is sitting outside at the moment. Ishant is not looking fully comfortable, stretching out a little bit. Looks like another side strain issue.

  • After 84 overs,Australia 257/6 ( Tim Paine (C)(W) 9 , Pat Cummins 0)

    Bumrah with couple of unplayable deliveries to Tim Paine. Absolute corkers. Vicious stuff. It was straight full and fast, which was bowled on a good length, perhaps hit one of those cracks, square Paine up completely, rose over the off stump and kept climbing it took a leaping Pant with the big gloves to stop the ball. Mind you he was off the ground by a good feet or two. The Australian skiper missed out a scoring opportunity off a full toss bowled early in the over. 

  • Jasprit Bumrah is back into the attack

  • After 83 overs,Australia 251/6 ( Tim Paine (C)(W) 7 , Pat Cummins 0)

    Ishant Sharma gets a crucial wicket of Travis Head, albeit with a loose delivery, off the first ball with the second new ball. Head completely lost well his head there holding out to third man isn't acceptable, especially after scroing 58. Pat Cummins come to the middle and stonewalls the remainder of the over.

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist in Perth

    Thrown away. Travis Head has thrown it all away and India have a foot in the door. The tail, for what it's worth, has been exposed. Of course, they are all sound batsmen but this is a slightly different pitch and maybe India have learnt their lessons from the morning. 

  • OUT! Head better have an explanation to give when he enters the change room. Full and wide delivery from Ishant, Head goes hard at it and slices it straight to third man. This was suicidal. Ishant and India aren't complaining. Umpires check for overstepping, should check it every delivery when Ishant is bowling, and he has got something behind the line. He is okay. India can breathe. Australia once again lose another wicket at the wrong time.

    Head c Shami b Ishant 58(80)

  • Ishant Sharma is back into the attack

  • After 82 overs,Australia 251/5 ( Travis Head 58 , Tim Paine (C)(W) 7)

    This is actually the scheduled time for close of play, however we will have make use of the extra half hour with nine overs remaining in the day's play. Shami has new cherry. He beats Head with some extra bounce as he whizzes past the outside edge of the horiztonatal bat of Head. Shami completes the over with a jaffa to Paine with just enough away movement to beat Paine. One run from the over.

  • New ball has been taken.

  • After 81 overs,Australia 250/5 ( Travis Head 57 , Tim Paine (C)(W) 7)
     

    Called it early and called it wrong as Kohli surprises with not opting for the new ball as Vihari continues. Sunil Gavaskar on air says he bowls those deliveries that might tempt batsmen into playing false strokes. And right on cue, Paine almost ends up pulling it to slightly wide mid on fielder. A boundary for Paine off a full toss as Australia take six runs off the over

  • After 80 overs,Australia 244/5 ( Travis Head 56 , Tim Paine (C)(W) 2)

    Six runs off Shami's over with Head pouncing on the last delivery to stroke a boundary. Australia approach the 250-run mark. 

  • FOUR! Head stands on his toes, get on the top of the ball and hacks it over gully for a boundary to third man. Up and over!

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Tim Paine’s batting average in Tests:

    1st innings : 40.69

    2nd innings : 31.44

  • After 79 overs,Australia 238/5 ( Travis Head 51 , Tim Paine (C)(W) 1)

    Paine is unable to get it past the point fielder in three attempts. Only a single off the first ball from Head comes off the over, which will be perhaps Vihari's last over of the innings. Job well done – 13 overs, 2 for 47.

  • After 78 overs,Australia 237/5 ( Travis Head 50 , Tim Paine (C)(W) 1)

    Five runs off the over from Vihari. Good running between the Australian pair to take the single off the last ball.  Paine gets his innings underway as well.

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist in Perth

    Shot from Travis Head. Cut away nicely. Two partnerships have hurt India this day, the morning one and now this. Australia will have their eyes on 300 from here, minimum. 

  • FIFTY! That's another battling half-century by Travis Head. His third in Test cricket, notching his second in this series. Gets there with a quick single to cover point. Very crucial knock.

  • After 77 overs,Australia 232/5 ( Travis Head 46 , )
     

    Tim Paine will walk about just a couple of overs before the new ball will be able to India's disposal. Australia have lost half of their side. They wouldn't want their tail to be exposed against the red Kookaburra. Vihari will a crucial breakthrough. Marsh added 21 to his total after being put down by Pant.

  • OUT! That is fourth batsmen out while attempting slash the ball. Absolutely flew off Shaun Marsh's bat but one of the safest pairs in the slip, Ajinkya Rahane gobbles it neatly. Almost at shoulder height. Great reaction grab. Awful time for Australia to lose a wicket.

    Shaun Marsh c Rahane b Hanuma Vihari 45(98)

     

  • After 76 overs,Australia 227/4 ( Shaun Marsh 44 , Travis Head 42)

    As a stop gap option Virat Kohli turns to the part time spin of Murali Vijay to keep his pacers fresh for the burst with the second new ball. Marsh and Head recognize that and make use of the scoring opportunities on offer. Take nine, thanks to couple of boundaries from Marsh in the over.

  • FOUR! Quality stroke from Marsh. Makes good use of his feet, gets to the pitch of the ball and pounds it past mid on

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist in Perth

    Shot from Travis Head. Cut away nicely. Two partnerships have hurt India this day, the morning one and now this. Australia will have their eyes on 300 from here, minimum. 

  • FOUR! Into Marsh's body and not the best of the lengths either. Marsh forces through midwicket to collect a boundary.

  • Murali Vijay into the attack for the first time

  • After 75 overs,Australia 217/4 ( Shaun Marsh 35 , Travis Head 41)

    Cries of 'catch' as Head cuts it backward point. It bounces safely ahead of the fielder. Head earns the boundary with very fine slice, the only scoring shot of the over. Second new ball is five overs away.

  • FOUR! Very good cut shot that by Travis Head. His initial movement was to come forward sees the length that is pretty shot, goes back and slices it well past short third and point fielder

  • After 74 overs,Australia 213/4 ( Shaun Marsh 35 , Travis Head 37)

    Ishant Sharma continues. Maintaining tight lines here Ishant but nothing that rings alarms for Marsh. Maiden over.

  • After 73 overs,Australia 213/4 ( Shaun Marsh 35 , Travis Head 37)

    Vihari continues after drinks. Into his 10th over now. Starts off with a couple of singles. Loud appeal for lbw from Ajinkya Rahane from first slip as Marsh kicks the ball away without offering a shot. No interest shown from Pant or the bowler Vihari. Was outside the off stump. No danger.

  • After 72 overs,Australia 210/4 ( Shaun Marsh 33 , Travis Head 36)

    Jadeja is here! Only if substitute fielders were allowed to bowl. However, he presence in the field is always a danger for batsmen. Marsh is lucky that his inside edge while playing the cover drive didn't trickle back on his wickets. Three off the over. Time for a breather as players grab a drink. Australia's hour!

  • Ishant Sharma back into the attack

  • After 71 overs,Australia 207/4 ( Shaun Marsh 32 , Travis Head 34)

    Change in strategy from Head. Head has started to use his feet to the spinner, rather than hanging back and play the horitzontal shots. Making the bowler alter his length. Six more from the over.

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Catches dropped in this series so far:

    India – 4

    Australia – 0

  • FOUR! Head advances down the pitch once again and whips it past mid wicket for a boundary. Was in the air for a while.

  • After 70 overs,Australia 201/4 ( Shaun Marsh 31 , Travis Head 29)

    Shami continues. The ball soar with either batsmen or Rishabh jumping. Marsh ducks under one, gets top of another one and sees out a maiden from Shami. The second new ball is now 10 overs away and by that we will approaching towards the end of the first day's play. Interesting last hour coming up.

  • After 69 overs,Australia 201/4 ( Shaun Marsh 31 , Travis Head 29)

    Three runs off Vihari's over as Marsh and Head take Australia past the 200-run mark. The duo has countered a penetrative Indian attack with some confident batting
     

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist in Perth

    Pant drops Marsh on 24*. Regulation catch for the keeper and he has spilled it. Won't be talking too much after that. Vihari unlucky! 

  • After 68 overs,Australia 198/4 ( Shaun Marsh 30 , Travis Head 27)

    Another over that costs six runs as the duo raise their 50-run partnership. Valuable runs these. Shami deliveries a very good over that has Head in some bother.

India vs Australia, Live Score, Latest Updates, 2nd Test: Close of play – Day 1

Another see-saw day of cricket. Pretty good for an inaugural day of Test cricket at the new Perth. Nothing like our good ole WACA, but the drop in pitch has offered enough to be interested about.

That rip-snoter from Bumrah to Tim Paine with the second new ball will remain in memory for a long, long time. Forget Tim Paine, I might have nightmare of it. However, the Australian captain survived that delivery and remained unbeaten till the end of the day.

India have their task cut out for the second day – which is wipe out the Australian, if possible before 300.

The second India vs Australia Test is being telecast on Sony Sports Network. The Australia-India live streaming will take place on sonyliv.com. Click here to know when and where to watch the second Test between Australia and India.

2nd Test preview: The shiny new Perth Stadium is expected to conjure up nostalgia-tinged memories of its fiery predecessor, offering conditions a desperate Australia hope will spur a series-leveling victory over India in the second test starting on Friday.

The 60,000-seat arena will host its first test after a rich 47-year run at the nearby WACA, located on the opposite bank of the Swan River, and the grassy drop-in wicket unveiled on Thursday has fueled anticipation of a pace bowler’s paradise.

Recent results suggest that will be the case as ball has thoroughly dominated matches at the Burswood stadium this season, including Australia’s tame dismissal for 152 in a heavy one-day international defeat to South Africa last month.

Australia had enjoyed a stranglehold over opponents on the fast and bouncy WACA wicket, losing just four tests in the past two decades. Three of those defeats were to South Africa, who relished the pace-friendly conditions similar to their homeland.

India’s famous 72-run victory in 2008 was their sole triumph at the WACA, halting a Ricky Ponting-led Australia’s world-record equaling 16-match winning streak.

The tourists were humiliated by an innings and 37 runs four years later, the last time India played a test in Perth.

After falling short by 31 runs in Adelaide, captain Tim Paine still has plenty of concerns about an inexperienced lineup, although Australia named an unchanged side for the test with struggling opener Aaron Finch retaining his place.

The absence of the suspended Steve Smith and David Warner was exposed in Adelaide, where Australia made modest scores of 235 and 291 against a disciplined Indian attack as Shaun Marsh and Travis Head were the only home batsmen to hit fifties.

Huge challenge

Australia’s woes extend to spearhead Mitchell Starc, who has been under the microscope having taken just 12 wickets in his past five tests, and his major control issues in India’s second innings would not have improved his confidence.

Paine, on a positive note, is fit to play after he appeared to injure his troubled right index finger on the final day in Adelaide. He said his team was wary of India’s momentum after the visitors won their first ever series-opener in Australia.

“They have a bit of a sniff of something special,” Paine told reporters. “We know it’s going to be a highly competitive test and a huge challenge for our whole group.”

A confident India have been dealt a double injury blow, however, with batsman Rohit Sharma and spin spearhead Ravichandran Ashwin, who took 6-149 in Adelaide, ruled out on the eve of the Perth test.

In-form pace trio Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Ishant Sharma remain available as India strive for a maiden test series triumph in Australia.

“I was pretty happy to see the pitch the way it is,” India captain Virat Kohli said.

“I hope that no more grass is taken off the pitch because that will mean the first three days will be, obviously, very lively and we, as a team, are happy with that.”

Even though the four-test series started in nail-biting fashion, ticket sales have reportedly been sluggish with just 20,000 spectators expected on a scorching opening day with temperatures set to hit 38 degrees Celsius.
