AUSTRALIA v INDIA DAY 1

Score: India 4-303


Man of the moment: Cheteshwar Pujara .Frustrated the Australian attack yet again, scoring a classy century and anchoring the Indian innings after the loss of an early wicket

Key moment: India captain Virat Kohli winning the toss

Stat of the day: - 76.33 - What Pujara averages in this series after scoring 458 runs so far in seven innings.

Summary: Pujara ensured India capitalised on the toss with another high class innings in which he rarely looked troubled. Australia;s bowlers toiled hard on a flat pitch, but India profited from a series of productive partnerships, with only one producing under 44. The home attack will need early wickets on day two to stay in the game.

Quote of the day: "Aren't you bored yet?" Australian's Nathan Lyon to Pujara, shortly after the Indian batsman reached his century.
