India vs Australia 2020 Live score and latest update of 1st Test at Adelaide: STUMPS! India finish the day on 233/6 with Ashwin and Saha still batting. The day has belonged to Australia. India won the toss and opted to bat but lost Shaw in the first over. Mayank fought for a while but it was Kohli and Pujara who kept the brilliant Australian bowlers at the bay for a long period of time.

Ashwin and Saha are reliable players and India would hope they could take them to a par first innings total tomorrow.
