Australia are six down now. Still a lot left to play for here! Then, Marsh flicks the ball towards mid wicket for his fifth boundary of the innings. He has done his part. Cook, Jennings and a nightwatchman will be padded up. The conditions are overcast and the pitch is dark in colour which means there can be some moisture on the surface.
Kohli and Dinesh Karthik 18 were at the crease when umpires dislodged the bails for the day. Ishant Sharma gets a wicket finally, after toiling hard through out the day, the lanky pacer gets his reward. India will begin second day, looking to pack up England as early as possible. He bowled various variations and troubled the best and worst of England batting. Root was extremely disappointed to fall 20 runs short of his 14th test century, but he achieved a notable milestone, displacing Alastair Cook as England's quickest to 6,000 runs in this format. What a start to the series here in Adelaide Oval. Batting at number 6, he made 81 runs at 20.
Prithvi Shaw's ankle injury has opened doors for the Rahul-Vijay combination. Opening issues continued to plague India in England as well. Simple catch to wicket-keeper Jonny Bairstow. Smashes it all along the ground to long on for another dot. India need just six wickets to win the opening Test of the four-match series. Whatever the outcome of this game, cricket has definitely been the ultimate winner as India coach Ravi Shastri would say.
Beautiful shot from Virat Kohli. Murali Vijay, Kohli and vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane are proven performers in the overseas conditions and India will rely on them to put big scores. Ishant's comes from round the wicket. The final day began with an early wicket Dawid Malan. Looking at the last five encounters between the two sides, India find themselves having the upper hand, having won four match all victories coming on Indian soil.
That Kohli needs more support from other batsmen is a fact that has been noticed by Australia. Edge and India are 5 down in chase of 194. Shikhar Dhawan just couldn't get down in time at first slip. Four off the first over. Dhawan and Murali Vijay 20 did the hardwork of seeing off the new ball with a 50-run stand but it all went awry after that.
Mentions about England's bowling being good which reflects in the slow pace of their stands. Curran has moved on to 47. Tremendous fight shown by the 20-year-old, 63 off 65 balls. Where is India vs England 1st Test? They will be hoping to do that tomorrow early in the day. It kick-starts a five-match Test series that will go on until the second week of September.
India just 19 runs away! Just went inches over the stumps. Feels proud about the partnerships in this innings. India still required another 84 runs to win with two days of play still to go in the first Test. Simple catch for Jonny Bairstow. England will know they have an uphill task tomorrow and by England, we mean the England bowlers.
Cummins goes for 28 and that is the game more or less for the Indians. As a result, all of them have got a wicket at least. That dismissal changed momentum of the innings with England collapsing thereafter. England needed that boundary to ease the pressure. He does well to turn the strike off the fifth ball. Adds that they did well to face the opposition bowling which is full of quality.
