India are in a commanding position in the first test that is happening in Nagpur. After Rohit Sharma‘s brilliant century, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel contributed with the bats with half-centuries and along with Shami’s big hits takes the lead over 220. Starting the day, India lost Jadeja pretty early after he misjudged Murphy’s straighter.

He took the wicket of Shami as well but only after the latter scored 37 runs in just 47 balls. Axar and Shami put on a 50+ partnership as well only to frustrate Australia. Even the last wicket contributed 20 valuable runs taking the lead over 200. Axar Patel is the last man to fall.

Trailing by 223, Australia didn’t start the innings well. Ashwin the key nemesis for the left-handers accounted for Khawaja’s wicket. David Warner too has been given a chance as Kohli fails to latch onto a catch at slips.
