Ind vs Aus 4th Test: India reach 69/1 at lunch on Day One of fourth Test

Cheteshwar Pujara and Mayank Agarwal put on 59 keeps running for the solid second wicket as India came to 69 for 1 at lunch on the very beginning of the fourth and last Test against Australia here on Thursday. 

At the Sydney Cricket Ground, Agarwal was unbeaten on 42 runs, while Pujara was batting on 16 not out toward the finish of 24-over morning session. This was after India won the hurl and picked to bat. Senior off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin did not breeze through the wellness test at the beginning of today and was led out of the match. 

The guests at that point rolled out two improvements, with Lokesh Rahul and Kuldeep Yadav coming in for Rohit Sharma and Ishant Sharma. Australia too rolled out two improvements with Peter Handscomb and Marnus Labuschagne supplanting Aaron Finch and Mitchell Marsh. Mitchell Starc (0/27) and Josh Hazlewood (1/17) got the procedures in progress, with the Indian openers making a streaky begin.

Things did not change much for Rahul (9) in spite of missing the Melbourne Test, as he edged twice in the initial four balls confronted just for the ball to go to the limit. He didn't keep going long, edging Hazlewood to initially slip in the second finished, and his bad dream keep running on this visit proceeded. 

This was the 6th opening blending for India in 12 abroad Tests since January 2018, and the resultant opening organization just midpoints 21.56 in 23 abroad innings. At the opposite end, Agarwal settled down and stroked a few cover drives. He looked strong in contrast with his Karnataka colleague and alongside Pujara, drove the Indian run-rate forward. 

In an arrangement where low scoring has been the standard, India were scoring at 4.29 per over in the primary hour as they came to 46/1 at beverages. India crossed 50 presently, with the team expediting their 50-association off 104 balls. Australia lost a DRS survey in the fifteenth over, when Hazlewood had a noisy yell against Pujara turned down. There was nothing on the snickometer with the ball falling off the batsman's thighs. The home side at that point turned to run-sparing strategies indeed, and moved to a shorter length, focusing on the batsmen's bodies. 

Pujara was hit a few times, once on the head. Shockingly Nathan Lyon (0/6) just entered the 22nd over — the most recent he has rocked the bowling alley in any Indian innings this arrangement. Be that as it may, he couldn't give a leap forward before lunch either. India have taken an unassailable 2-1 arrangement lead in the wake of winning the main Test in Adelaide by 31 runs and the third Test in Melbourne by 137 runs. Australia had won the second Test in Perth by 146 runs.
