In a wonderful display of Test cricket, India defeated Australia on the final day of the 1st match at Adelaide Oval.
Chasing a target of 323 runs in their second inning, Australia fell short of 31 runs. Shaun Marsh (60 runs) was the highest scorer for the team in the second inning.
As Australia was closing in towards the target, it was Ashwin who took the last wicket of Josh Hazlewood to wrap up the match. Ashwin, Bumrah, and Shami took 3 wickets each in the second inning.
Cheteshwar Pujara was awarded the ‘Player of the Match’ for his brilliant knock of 123 and 71 runs.
India: 250-10 (88.0) & 307-10 (106.5)
Australia: 235-10 (98.4) & 291-10 (119.5)
It's fair to say Virat Kohli was pretty pumped to win the first Test.
