However, India were off to a perfect start with Ishant Sharma producing a peach of a delivery in the very first over to have Aaron Finch bowled for a duck.

India’s first innings lasted 88 deliveries with Cheteshwar Pujara hitting a century – a magnificent 123 off 246 which spared them the blushes after they were reduced to 127/6 at one stage. It was Pujara’s first century Down Under and 16th overall.

For the home team, Hazlewood was the pick of the bowler with 3/52 while Pat Cummins (2/49), Mitchell Starc (2/63) and Nathan Lyon (2/83) chipped in with a couple wickets each.
While Pujara was the top run-scorer of the India innings, the next best came from Rohit Sharma – 37 off 61. Rishabh Pant and Ravichandran Ashwin scored 25 runs each for the joint third-best score.
