Cheteshwar Pujara, who batted brilliantly on day one of the first Test against Australia, was unlucky to get courtesy an excellent running throw from Pat Cummins at the fag end of the day.
Meanwhile, the Australian bowlers had a great outing to reduce India for 250 for nine at the end of the first day. The pace trio of Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, and Mitchell Starc did an exceptional job returning with two wickets each. Off-spinner Nathan Lyon also provided excellent support as he kept things tight from one end and bagging two crucial wickets.
However, his knock of 123 runs ended in a disappointing manner as he got run out at the end of the day. Cummins had one stump to aim at from short midwicket, which Pujara is quite aware of leading to his decision of risking a single. It was a length ball from Josh Hazlewood that Pujara works into the on-side and is desperate to retain strike. Cummins moves to his right, picks it up one-handed and hits the bulls-eye as Pujara was a yard short.
