Rocks and diamonds display sees Australia fall short in the first Test

Australia were bowled out for 235 in their first innings, in reply to India's 250. Chasing a target of 323 runs in the second inning, team Australia fell short of 31 runs, getting all-out at a score of 291 runs.

Marsh edged a beauty from Jasprit Bumrah (3-67) behind before Paine miscued a pull shot off the same bowler and Pant then notched his record-equaling catch when Starc looked to attack Mohammed Shami (3-65).

Shastri, the former Test star, was lambasted on social media and in traditional media in India. Australia's off-spinner has now taken Kohli's wicket more than any other bowler in Tests.

Batting after Kohli won the toss, the visitors crumbled in a disastrous morning session under a pace barrage before digging in later in the day, with Pujara and Ravi Ashwin (25 off 76 balls) staging a fightback as the bowlers exhausted. If you want to be a good team you have got to be hard to beat and today we were hard to beat, I think we made India work harder than they thought they were going to have to work, but sitting back now it is a huge opportunity because we didn't cash in in the first innings and didn't have batters out there today when they were tiring.

Despite plenty of speculation around the suitability of Aaron Finch at the top of the order, Taylor is keen for Finch and Marcus Harris to be retained as Australia's opening pair for Perth. As a bowling unit, when you show that discipline, it doesn't matter which side you play against.

Australia claimed that Test at the SCG by eight wickets, with the debutant Guest going wicketless.

The cheeky 21-year-old from the ancient city of Haridwar in North India's Uttarakhand state had only one gear - turbo charged - in blasting 25 and 28, including thumping 18 off four consecutive balls from Nathan Lyon on Sunday when the tourists needed to occupy the crease as much as they needed runs.

In addition to the numbness of defeat, the Australians had to cope with a more piercing feeling in the shape of a blow to the captain Tim Paine, resurrecting years of trouble with his right index finger. Especially after their captain has been removed, which he was when Nathan Lyon picked him up with a delightful piece of tweak last night, deep into the final half hour in the extended final session.

"I've been coming to Australia since '91", Bhogle began.

"I just don't like his body language", Johnson said on Sunday.

Marsh will resume on Monday's last day of play unbeaten on 30 with Australia needing another 219 runs for victory with six wickets remaining.

"It's not often you can say Indian fast bowlers out-bowled their Australian counterparts, but this is one of those times".

"These things happen in test cricket. but it's important to stay calm at that point", Kohli said in a post-match interview.
