ADELAIDE: A remarkable bowling display by Australian pacers Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins, backed up by Nathan Lyon’s effective off-spin tied India down. The four frontline bowlers operated with sustained aggression in the heat and humidity.
Starc, who led the attack, was pleased with the show. “I think we’ve planned and prepared really well for this week and had a lot of vision to look at, and how India have played in the past,” he said.
“It was hard work, but it’s Test cricket. And the positive for us is we took nine wickets and we’ve got two tailenders in. Hopefully we can come back in the morning having recovered really well and take that wicket early on and let our batters get to work.”
