India vs Australia 2nd Test, Day 1: HIGHLIGHTS

IND vs AUS: That is it from our live coverage of India vs Australia Day/Night Test from Adelaide on indiatvnews.com. India were 36 for one in their first innings in reply to Australia's 195 all out at stumps on the opening day of the second Test at the MCG here on Saturday. Debutant Shubman Gill was batting on 28 in the company off Cheteshwar Pujara (7). Mayank Agarwal was the lone Indian to wicket to fall for a duck. India still trail Australia by 159 runs. Earlier, an inspired Indian bowling unit, led by the menacing Jasprit Bumrah (4/56)and the crafty Ravichandran Ashwin (3/35), steam-rolled Australia for a meagre 195.

In the first Test of the series, India were outclassed by the Australian bowling unit in the second innings. Struggling against the pink ball, India registered a shambolic batting collapse. India recorded their lowest innings total in Test history after posting 36/9 on the board, with Shami getting retired hurt. India's first pink-ball game in overseas conditions turned out to be a nightmare for Kohli's men as Australia dominated in Adelaide and took a 1-0 lead in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

Brief Preview: Eyeing to recover from Adelaide humiliation, a new-look Indian side, led by Ajinkya Rahane, is set to lock horns with Australia in the Boxing Day clash in Melbourne. While hosts Australia will try to gain a 2-0 lead in the four-Test series, India will hope to stay in the contest and step up in Virat Kohli's absence. Father-to-be Kohli's departure has opened the door for Shubman Gill, who'll be making his Test debut at the MCG. Likewise, Mohammed Siraj is also ready to fill the void left by an injured Mohammed Shami. Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja have also been included in the squad as India aim to shrug off Adelaide horror. (FULL PREVIEW)
