Kohli gets his half-century as India make Oz toil hard

Kohli gets his half-century as India make Oz toil hard

The Australian cut, the ball flew, Kohli leapt sideways at second slip, his right hand darted out like lightning, and an incredible catch was plucked out.

The hosts began the day with a lead of 277 and four wickets remaining following half-centuries from Marcus Harris, Aaron Finch and Travis Head on Friday.

The third day of the second Test between India and Australia will be played on December 15, 2018.

Sharma claimed the wickets of Starc (6) and Josh Hazlewood (0) in successive balls to end the innings.

It's interesting to note that both Fox and Seven recorded their highest viewership figures for the Adelaide Test in the third session on the fourth day - what would be the last day had it been a four-day Test.

It was a resolute 181-ball knock from Kohli with runs hard to come by against a disciplined Australia bowling attack.

Usman Khawaja, who made an excruciating five off 38 balls, was the second batsman to fall, rashly cutting Umesh Yadav in a desperate attempt to break the shackles after being tied down by the Indian bowlers.

The ball bounced just in front of Shaun Marsh at first slip, with Paine choosing not to go for the catch.

Even a second-innings comeback from Vijay in Perth probably won't be enough to save his place, Ponting reckons.

Harris had been there for 141 balls, but his dismissal meant Australia had lost three wickets for just 22 runs and surrendered their early advantage.

"We know their four quicks are world class and that it was going to be a challenge".

Vihari praised India's fight and said the morning session on day two could shape the match.

"I think the first hour tomorrow will be very crucial. There's a bit to be said for it isn't there, and it's certainly something I think we need to be open-minded to down the track".

Most of the 20,746 spectators at the new 60,000-seat stadium spent much of the day seeking refuge under the shelter of the stands with the temperature hitting 39 degrees Celsius.

After Australia were all out for 326 in the first innings, India made a terrible early response with openers Lokesh Rahul and Murali Vijay dismissed for a gain of only two runs.
