India vs Australia, Highlights, 2nd Test at Perth, Day 1, Full Cricket Score: Hosts reach 277/6 at stumps

15:38 (IST)

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.

15:32 (IST)

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.

15:25 (IST)

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.

15:21 (IST)

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.

15:16 (IST)

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.

15:11 (IST)

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

15:08 (IST)

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.

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.

IPL 2020 Highlights, DC vs CSK Match, Full Cricket Score: Dhawan's maiden ton powers Delhi to five-wicket win over Chennai

Jadeja, and not Dwayne Bravo’s bowling the final over, and he starts off with a wide. Dhawan then collects two off the first legal delivery as he guides the ball towards the leg side. Axar Patel, however, reminds every just how useful he is with the bat in hand as he smashes Jadeja out of the park, collecting three sixes off four deliveries — to finish the game by himself as Delhi Capitals collect their seventh win of the campaign with five wickets and a delivery to spare! For Chennai, they’re condemned to their sixth defeat in nine games, and by now the prospect of making it to the playoffs looks very difficult indeed for MS Dhoni and Co!

IPL 2020 Highlights, DC vs RR Match, Full Cricket Score: Delhi beat Rajasthan by 13 runs, collect two more points

Delhi Capitals go on topWell, this has been a death bowling masterclass from both teams, but it is the Delhi Capitals who have won this. It was closer than the 13-run margin that the scorecard suggests. DC, by virtue of their sixth win in eight games, are at the top of the points table. DC will be mighty impressed with the extreme pace of Nortje who clocked 155 kmph quite easily and regularly. With Rabada, Ashwin and Axar rounding off their bowling, they look a really difficult team to beat. Shikhar Dhawan's 33-ball 57 was immensely vital as well as it set the platform for Shreyas Iyer, who scored a half century himself. There was no death-over flourish from either team this time though as bowlers came to the party. That's it from us tonight, but do join us for the coverage of RCB vs KXIP tomorrow. Till then, it's a wrap on Firstpost. Stay safe, good night.
