India lost three early wickets in the form of KL Rahul, Murli Vijay and skipper Virat Kohli.

While batting, India were at a score of 21 for a loss of three wickets after winning the toss in the first innings of the first Test against Australia at Adelaide Oval.

Josh Hazelwood struck in the second over itself and got KL Rahul's wicket, who thought to go for the drive but edged it in the safe hands of Aaron Finch.

Murli Vijay, in the side after young gun Prithvi Shaw suffered ankle ligament damage in a warm-up game, was struggling with the seam and caught by Australian skipper Tim Paine as he edged Mitchell Starc's ball.


Australia got the most prized scalp in the form of Kohli when Khawaja dived on his left side to take a stunner on Pat Cummins ball.

Ajinkya Rahane and Pujara were playing at two and three runs respectively.

India have never won a Test series in Australia.
