Australian bowlers need to come out good tomorrow if they want to snatch the Test. India will look to bat the entire day tomorrow.

India vs Australia Highlights, 1st Test at Adelaide Day 1, Full Cricket Score: Visitors end opening day at 233-6

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. The fortunes swung when Rahane messed up his call and gifted Australia the wicket of Kohli. From there on Australian pacers dominated as the second new ball helped them pick up the wickets of Rahane and Vihari. Ashwin and Saha are reliable players and India would hope they could take them to a par first innings total tomorrow.
