KXIP vs KKR Live Score

The first Test between Australia and India is being telecast on Sony Sports Network.

The tourists will resume at 9-250 after struggling to find runs on day one, with Cheteshwar Pujara the sole shining light with a fine century.

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 terrible shot-making and quality Australian pace after captain Virat Kohli won the toss.

On Tuesday, the brother of Australia batsman Usman Khawaja was taken into custody by counter-terrorism police investigating the discovery in August of a laptop computer containing a fake terrorist hit-list.

Australia's quicks dominated with the new ball to have India reeling in the first hour with the loss of four wickets.

"Playing county cricket has helped me a lot, and playing in England conditions are always challenging and when you come to Australia you know that it is slightly better", Pujara said.

Talking about the run-out, Starc said: "It was a special moment for him, especially after a long day in the field".

Grace Millane: police search for British backpacker missing in New Zealand
Grace Millane, who is from Essex, has been reported missing by her family, who say they have not heard from her in almost a week. Police are continuing to investigate the disappearance of missing 22-year-old English tourist Grace Millane .


Within just 21 overs (which meant that more than 75% of the day's play was still remaining), all that remained of India's top order was Cheteshwar Pujara, as he did his best to somehow hang in there, scorecard reading a tragic 41/4 in 20.2 overs.

India, meanwhile, will go into the start of the four-test series without 19-year-old Prithvi Shaw, who sustained a left ankle injury in a warm-up match last Friday at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Past issues between the teams prompted one website to chronicle the "13 Ugliest India-Australia Controversies".

The second day of the first Test between India and Australia will begin at 5:30 am IST.

But then, batting with the tail, Pujara accelerated and made his next 50 from 78 balls to score his 16th Test century.

India named a 12-man squad Wednesday and will wait until before the toss to decide whether Rohit Sharma or Hanuma Vihari will claim the final spot in their batting order.

Batting after Kohli won the toss, the visitors crumbled in a disastrous morning session under a pace barrage before digging in later in the day with Pujara and Ravi Ashwin (25 off 76 balls) staging a fightback as the bowlers exhausted.
