Kohli missed out in the Test series to score a century at Adelaide, his tryst with the ground is ceaseless. He signalled the umpire for a towel to wipe his face but the umpire seemed to have missed the batsman not making his ground. I think it would have been nice to have Jhye bowl right at the end. It includes victories in 10 of the 13 series in the period. This has been a better start from the Indian openers. Usman Khawaja drops a sitter hit by Bhuvneshwar Kumar high up in the air from the delivery by Marcus Stoinis. Mentions the newbies bowled really well and both of them Behrendorff and Jhye have a good future ahead.
Bhuvi was outstanding with the ball. This one looks like it could head down to the wire. Cummins goes for 28 and that is the game more or less for the Indians. Virat Kohli has hit it straight to the fielder in the deep. The hosts will bank on another collective effort from the top order comprising Alex Carey, Peter Handscomb, Usman Khawaja, Glenn Maxwell and Shaun Marsh while also hoping for skipper Aaron Finch to come out of a recent slump in form. Reckons they tried to take the game deep but the latter got out out at the wrong time.
Credit to India, they played well. It's always tough when you're not getting runs, but batting's separate from captaincy. Just at the stroke of tea the game comes to an end. His 61-ball knock was laced with 6 boundaries and two sixes. Australia 20 for one after 4 overs. Not sure if this drop would haunt Australia but still, the bowler will be disappointed as he could have added one more to his wicket tally.
Virat Kohli tried to hit the delivery from Jhye Richardson towards square finds Marcus Stoinis. Gets to his milestone with a couple on the onside. Rohit has moved to 85 runs now. Would you believe it, he is just 10 tons away. A good start is key to a good finish.
M Stoinis to B Kumar, Another drop and once again it is on the bowling of Stoinis. He will look to change that in the coming overs. That was nicely played by Khawaja. He had left the field for sometime for what looked liked a shoulder niggle. This is shortish and outside off, Khawaja slashes at it but is done in by the extra bounce.
The Indian skipper departs for 3, India 4 for 2. Australia have taken the early lead at the Sydney Cricket Ground and making the clash at Adelaide on Tuesday all the more important. In Australia, cricket fans can watch India tour of Australia live online on Fox Sports website and Cricket Australia app. Khaleel bowls a poor length ball on middle, easy pickings for Carey, he flat-bats it over the mid on fielder and it races to the fence. One more wicket is what the Indians will need it seems. Good length delivery from Mohammed Shami and Usman Khawaja hits it towards deep extra cover to pick four runs.
Close shave on two occasions for the India number 4. We are 15 minutes away from the toss. Mohammed Shami departs for 9 on the final ball of the innings. The duo have put on 30 runs off 65 deliveries so far. Chasing the target of 289 runs, India lost Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli and Ambati Rayudu early. He moves to 45 runs with that shot.
And Hazlewood comes up with an upper-cut into the third-man boundary. According to him, the team winning the toss should bat. His 10th series or tournament in a row where he has scored at least one century. Preview: Australia have been poor across formats, unable to cope with the constant changes in search of stability. I was preparing in that manner. Rohit Sharma hits Marcus Stoinis for a maximum.
Pulled away by Rohit Sharma from the short delivery by Peter Siddle for a maximum towards backward square leg. He is galloping towards Sachin Tendulkar's 49. Pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar has the red cherry for India. When it comes off it looks good. Running a triple and a double off two deliveries got the toll on the former Indian skipper.
