India out for 250 on 1st delivery Friday at Adelaide Oval

Ricky Ponting Unhappy With Poor Umpiring During Adelaide Test

India won the toss on a scorching morning at the Adelaide Oval and elected to bat first in the opening Test of the four-match series with Australia on Thursday.

"Little things have worked and hopefully the swing that I've got the last couple of weeks hangs around for the summer". This Test is nicely poised with both the teams fighting it out to take full control. Australian media, quoting police sources, said Arsalan Khawaja was being questioned about forgery and an attempt to pervert justice, but had never meant to commit a terrorism offense.

There was tension well before that, with legpsinner bowler Shane Warne adding some spice with a comment during a 1998 tour to India that he had to pack baked beans and tinned spaghetti because he wasn't able to handle Indian food. Pujara finally broke his jinx in Australia when he clipped Starc to the midwicket fence to reach his milestone.

"As this series wears on and you get to places where the wicket is a bit flatter and conditions a bit warmer and bowlers a little more exhausted, he might have more of a role to play". On a day when Australia's four pacers operated as a unit, Pujara's calm application on an Adelaide wicket offering extra bounce was a sight to behold.

Harris and Khawaja, who shared a watchful 45-run stand after Finch chopped on in the first over for a third-ball duck, were undone on 26 and 28 respectively by challenging, well-flighted deliveries.

Murali Vijay, whose test average in Australia is 60.25, and Ajinkya Rahane, averaging 57 here, are also expected to be big threats to the home side.

Australia's bowling attack did the job on day one, it's now up to the batsmen to do their part.

Harris, Finch, Khawaja, S Marsh, Handscomb, Head, Paine, Cummins, Starc, Lyon and Hazlewood. The latter played some loose strokes at the start of his innings, but got some streaky boundaries off Mohammed Shami (0-51) to help the scoring rate move along. However, he pushed one forward against Ashwin and gloved it to keeper Rishabh Pant.

Ashwin first struck before lunch.

Khawaja was forced to play at it and seemed to glove it to the keeper.

We've been rolling our sleeves up, we've got plenty to prove as well", Langer said. "This being the first Test we think they'll do the job".

"The way he was playing before hand - which was when he got dropped - was very one dimensional, so I'm interested to see how it's evolved and hopefully it's successful here", he said. Handscomb is batting on 32 while Head is on 14.

The wily spinner extracted enough turn and bounce from the Adelaide pitch to create doubts in the Australian camp, and thanks to poor shot selection by some of the home batsmen that the second session yielded just 60 runs at around 2 runs per over.

He arrived at the crease with India 1-3 after two overs. Together they faced 59 balls and put on 22 runs in a bid to keep the scoreboard ticking.

India's attack has been superb this year but they have struggled to finish the innings and they will hope to do that this time round.
