India vs Australia 3rd Test Day 1 Highlights
India vs Australia 3rd Test Day 1 Highlights

A brilliant debut so far for India’s newest opener. He doesn’t have a bat sponsor but that should be coming his way very soon. He’s toyed with Nathan Lyon, lofting and driving him through long off to bring up his fifty. A confident start that should hold him in good stead going forward. 

Mayank Agarwal’s 76 run is highest score by an Indian on Test Debut in Australia. Mayank and Pujara have built 83 runs stand for 2nd wicket.

Kohli and Pujara have built a neat little stand. There have been some edges off Kohli, chasing wide ones that have gone safe but India will take that. They will need someone to play an assertive role on a flat pitch. 

The fifty runs stand between Kohli and Pujara came off 95 balls.
