INDIA V AUSTRALIA, FOURTH TEST, DAY ONE
SCORE: Australia 4-255
SUMMARY: Australia enjoyed their best batting day of the series after captain Steve Smith won the toss. The tourists lost two wickets quickly, twice, but had fine contributions throughout the day to be on course for comfortably their best total of the series. Helping Australia’s cause was the pitch behaving far better than it did during the first three Tests.
MAN OF THE MOMENT: Usman Khawaja brought up one his finest centuries, batting all day in hot conditions to finish unbeaten on 104. It was a gritty innings from the left-hander, putting his “ego away” to tame India’s fierce bowling attack.
