Where is the first Test between India and Australia being played?
The India number three battled a hamstring strain late in the day but was a rock even as his partners crumbled around him, pushing India to 250 for nine at the close with a brutal assault on the second new ball.
Preview, 1st Test: One team has one of its star players sidelined with an ankle injury, and he'll miss the first test beginning Thursday at the Adelaide Oval.
What time does the second day of the first Test between India and Australia begin? Australian media, quoting police sources, said Arsalan Khawaja was being questioned about forgery and an attempt to pervert justice, but had never meant to commit a terrorism offense. "I also felt that our top order should have batted better but they will learn from the mistakes", he said. Five overs later came the next downfall as Vijay repeated Rahul's mistake, the ball eventually caught by Aussie captain Tim Paine at wicket-keeping.

"It was tough in the heat but once we were seven down, I had to accelerate and play my shots", Pujara said.
But then, batting with the tail, Pujara accelerated and made his next 50 from 78 balls to score his 16th Test century.
Murali Vijay, whose test average in Australia is 60.25, and Ajinkya Rahane, averaging 57 here, are also expected to be big threats to the home side.
Temperatures are forecast to reach 39 Celsius (102 Fahrenheit) in Adelaide for the first day.
Pujara went into a familiar shell, playing out 29 dot balls on the trot before the 20th and 34th over while Rohit Sharma delighted with some pristine shots, a couple of them off Cummins - a pull and a lofted inside out drive - going all the way.
