Posted on 1 week ago by adminLive Cricket Score, India vs Australia, 1st Test, Day 3 at Adelaide: India Eye … 08:35(IST) Rain continues to play hide and seek, it has forced the players to take early lunch.We saw Paine having a word with the umpires, probably not happy with the fact that umpires initially continued to play in that rain and Australia lose two wickets! 08:03(IST) WICKET! Hazlewood departs first ball, Shami strikes and he will be on a hat-trick in the next innings. Short and Hazlewood looks to cut the ball but gets a thick outside edge and Pant takes simple catch. Australia are dismissed for 235, India take a 15 run lead. 08:01(IST) WICKET! Shami strikes, its the big wicket of Travis Head. The ball pitches and moves slightly away. Head is playing away from the body, looking to poke at the ball but gets a thick edge and straight through to the keeper.Australia are 235/9 as Head departs for a well made 72. 08:00(IST) SIX! Lyon has had enough of the short stuff, pulls one and connects well against Shami. The ball goes sailing over the boundary and into the stands, good catch by the guy in the crowd there. The trail just 16 now for Australia 07:51(IST) Lyon certainly looking a bit more assured in the middle, he isn’t going for his shots recklessly. India also targetting him with the short ball, which he is handling well at the moment. The visitors will do well to pitch the ball up, something that worked wonderfully for them earlier! 07:45(IST) Again there seems to be some rain in the air, players aren’t coming off the field though at the moment as India continue with Ishant and Bumrah here 07:41(IST) Loud appeal for leg before wicket against Lyon there but the ball would have always been going down the leg side there. Bumrah’s angle is such that getting an lbw will always be difficult 07:38(IST) Updated session times:12:30 – 13:3013:30 – 14:10 for lunch14:10 – 16:25 16:25 – 16:45 for tea16:45 – 18:30Minimum overs today is 80#AUSvIND— SACA News (@SACAnews) December 8, 2018 07:34(IST) Ishant Sharma starts after the rain interruption, Lyon hits one through the covers and picks up three runs. Certainly impressive from the tailender. The trail keeps on getting less and less here for Australia. 07:15(IST) Good news coming in from Adelaide, where the covers are coming off and play is expected to start soon. In about 15 minutes time, we are likely to get about an hour’s play before lunch today 07:09(IST) Not much to update as it is still raining in Adelaide at the moment, looks like we won’t be having much play in the first session at the moment! 06:56(IST) Well some bad news folks, looks like the drizzle is getting steady and the big covers are coming back on. This is looking like a lengthy delay at the moment! 06:49(IST) The showers seem to have lightened a bit so all the big covers are coming off at the moment, the pitch though still remains covered 06:48(IST) Here is the wicket for those who missed it! Bumrah picks up his third wicket just before the rain delay in Adelaide: https://t.co/lTUqyqRMzW #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/2qYG9VM1gU— cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) December 8, 2018 06:38(IST) Well, Starc goes and so do rest of the players as rain interrupts once again. Only 20 minutes of play possible before another rain interruption here, India will be delighted though with that early breakthrough. Just two wickets left now for Australia and they still trail by 46 runs 06:34(IST) WICKET! Bumrah strikes, Starc wasn’t really helping himself here. Again looks to go for the expansive drive and gets an outside edge. Pant takes the simplest of catches, Kohli is delighted as Starc departs for 15. Australia are 204/8 06:29(IST) 200 is up for Australia here! Starc gets there with a leg bye, the trail for Australia is now 50 runs. And just as we say that, there seems to be a slight drizzle in the air yet again! 06:26(IST) Early indications are that Starc will look to play his shots if the ball is in his area, not yet connecting as cleanly as he would like. India wont exactly mind this approach as sooner or later, he is bound to edge one and Kohli has three slips, who will come in the game. Six runs from the first two overs for Australia 06:19(IST) Ishant Sharma is running into bowl with the new ball here, Starc will take strike here and we are all set for live action! 06:11(IST) The pitch will have some spice early on thanks to the rain and that is something India might well like to exploit as they look to wrap up this Australian innings, one can expect some fiery stuff from Bumrah and Ishant early on in the day here! 06:06(IST) Looks like we might have a start-stop day in front of us today, scanty showers are expected throughout! That means the extra hour of play might well come into use. 05:52(IST) We have some good news and the delay isn’t going to last much longer,Nigel Llong says that the play will start at 11.15 Adelaide time and that means we should have the first ball by 6.15 IST! 05:48(IST) We are having an inspection as I write this and that means we should have some news on the start of play soon! 05:32(IST) Both sets of players are now warming up and the sun is slowly starting to peep out at the Adelaide Oval, we should have a start time for you guys soon! 05:28(IST) The covers have started to come off at the Adelaide Oval, captain Virat Kohli can be seen sipping his coffee and it looks like we should have some play soon! 05:20(IST) Mum was in tears but dad was all smiles as son Marcus Harris walked out to bat for the first time in a Test match. While the debutant looked immaculate at the crease, driving well and confident enough to come down the pitch and hit R Ashwin over his head, he did all the hard work, got to 26, but could not go on. Kim Harris, who played cricket at a decent level himself, was just happy to see his son playing in a Test match and was not going to quibble just yet about him not making the start count, recalling the emotional ride his family has been on………. 05:11(IST) Even as it rains, take a look at Anand Vasu’s piece as he talks about Ravichandran Ashwin’s evolution ever since his previous tour to Australia in 2014! 05:10(IST) India vs Australia | Vasu: Learn, Improve, Evolve – Ashwin Shows He Gets Better With Every TourThis batting line-up, in its right mind, will not come hard at a bowler of Ashwin’s quality, especially given how he has constantly improved, evolved, learned from his mistakes and become a better bowler with every tour.https://www.news18.com 05:02(IST) There are covers on the pitch but the outfield hasn’t been covered, looks like a passing shower at the moment and nothing that should worry the teams. The weather is expected to be clear for the later half of the day. Right now, all we know is it will be a delayed start!
