AUSTRALIA V INDIA FIRST TEST SNAPSHOT:

STATE OF PLAY: Australia need another 219 runs to win with six wickets in hand. Set 323 for victory, the Aussies are 4-104 in their second innings with Shaun Marsh (31) and Travis Head (11) the not out batsmen


MAN OF THE DAY: Australian spinner Nathan Lyon takes 6-122, his 13th five-wicket haul - and sixth against India - in a Test innings. Honourable mention to India's Cheteshwar Pujara, who followed his first-innings 123 with a top-score of 71 in the second innings

KEY MOMENT: The dismissal of Usman Khawaja, the Australian batsman most likely to anchor the run chase. After being tied down, Khawaja advances to a Ravi Ashwin spinner and skies to deep cover where Rohit Sharma takes the catch. Khawaja falls for eight off 42 balls and Australia slip into the mire at 3-60

STAT OF THE DAY: Zero. The number of times a team has chased more than 315 runs to win an Adelaide Test. It's also the number of times India has won the first Test of a series in Australia in previous 11 attempts

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "We still believe we can win this." Australia's Lyon.
