Highlights, India vs Australia, 1st Test at Adelaide Day 3, Full Cricket Score: Hosts win by eight wickets
India vs Australia 2020 Live score and latest update of 1st test at Adelaide: What a day for Australia. Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins did a mind-bowling job with the ball in the first session. Indian batsmen simply couldn't cope against them and ended up with only 36-9 in their second innings. Australia needed 90 and they reached the target for the loss of just two wickets. Joe Burns remained unbeaten on 51. Australia take 1-0 lead in the four-Test series.
Ashwin's fine figures of 4 for 55, including the big wicket of Steve Smith, helped India gain a foothold on the second day of the opening Test, but he didn't want to sit back and "rate" this as his best overseas performance.
At the end of the day Ashwin finished with figures of 18-3-55-4. Not only did he take wickets, but he locked down one end which enabled the Indian quicks to skittle the Australian batting.
Paine top-scored with an unbeaten 73 before his team was bowled out for 191 on the second day of the match at the Adelaide Oval.
Courtesy Ashwin's 18-3-55-4, India successfully managed to neutralise a sub-par first innings score of 244. Rival skipper Tim Paine (73 off 99 balls) was the only home batsman to show stomach for a fight.

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.
