Australia chase 250 in first innings

Adelaide:Cheteshwar Pujara struck a defiant century in an Adelaide Oval furnace to rescue India after Australia's pacemen threatened to dominate day one of the series-opening test on Thursday.

Pujara's 16th test century saved India after a disastrous start that saw them slump to 86 for five after lunch, falling to a combination of awful shot-making and quality Australian pace after captain Virat Kohli won the toss.

Unbroken by fierce pace bowling, Pujara was dismissed by a piece of brilliant fielding, with Pat Cummins throwing down the stumps to leave the batsman well short of his ground.

Rohit Sharma outdid Rahane after lunch, holing out in the deep in a poorly executed attempt to repeat the six he had hit off Nathan Lyon's previous delivery.

India's No 3 passed 5,000 Test runs on his way to a 16th Test century on a day of stifling heat at the Adelaide Oval as the tourists struggled early on before reaching 250-9 at stumps. It's nice when they do stick, ' said Khawaja.

Two extraordinary individual feats in the field bookended an absorbing start to the Test series which had Australia on top early yesterday before India fought back to square the ledger.

"We got the wickets the way we thought we might get the wickets", he told the Seven Network.

Rohit Sharma, preferred in the final XI to all-rounder Hanuma Vihari, compiled a patient 31 before sweeping Lyon for six, narrowly missing being caught on the ropes.

Pujara then enjoyed 41-run and 62-run partnerships with Pant and Ashwin respectively before the 30-year-old, playing his 65th Test, was run out by Cummins, who along with Hazlewood and Starc each picked up two wickets.
