So, with Pujara's fall of wicket, that's the stumps on the opening day of the first Test. Australia will be happier of the two teams. However, India will be proud that Pujara led the fightback with an impressive century. Australian pacers were on target and bowled with intensity. Do join us back for second day's action tomorrow. Full Scorecard

OUT! Cheteshwar Pujara is run out. Sad end to the find knock this and that too just minutes before the close of play. Pujara wanted to steal quick single, but Pat Cummins with a brilliant throw runs him out.  Pujara run out (Pat Cummins) 123(246). 

That's 100 up for Cheteshwar Pujara. 100 off 231 balls for the right-hander. Excellent innings this as wickets at other end kept falling. That's 16th Test century for Pujara.

OUT! Mitchell Starc strikes with the new ball. This time he is accurate with his line and length. Ishant Sharma is bowled. The ball hits his pad first and then goes on to hit the stumps. Ishant b Starc 4(20)

New ball is available for Australia and looks like they will take it straightaway. Meanwhile, Cheteshwar Pujara is nearing his century and is batting on 85. The partnership between Pujara and Ishant Sharma is now worth 17.

OUT! Australia finally breaks the partnership. Pat Cummins bowls a superb delivery to get rid of him. There was a hint of away swing, Ashwin pushes at it and hits it towards the second slip. R Ashwin c Peter Handscomb b Pat Cummins 25(76)

The partnership between Cheteshwar Pujara and Ravi Ashwin is now worth 51. These two have helped India rebuild the innings. Australia look desperate to break this stand.

That's fifty up for Cheteshwar Pujara. That's his 20th Test half-century. He has stood form for India and he knows his job is half done. This is Pujara's seventh fifty against Australia.

So, it is time from tea break. Another session that went Australia's way. Two wickets in this session for the home side. India are in all sorts of trouble. Cheteshwar Pujara has stood out and is batting on 46  and giving him company is Ravi Ashwin.

OUT! Rishabh Pant's stay ends. He is caught behind. Umpire took time to gave that one out. India in all sorts of trouble now. R Pant c Paine b Lyon 25(38)
