Right then. What a heart-throbbing or a heartbreaking end to this Test match - depending on which side you are on. Sets up the rest of the series nicely. India are still favourites to win the series but the Aussies' second innings effort showed that they might just stretch the tourists a bit. How much will this drain both sides? The second Test is not far away, scheduled to start on Friday, December 14, 2018 in Perth at 10.20 am local (0220 GMT). Will be interesting to watch, especially the beginning. Do join us for that. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
Man of the Match, Cheteshwar Pujara says that he has played here before and that helped. Preparation is the most important thing, adds Pujara. Says that the way they came back in the game was the most important thing. Credits the bowlers for gaining the psychological lead and also lauds the partnerships in the second innings. Talks about the self belief in the team which helps a lot. Tells that he always backs his ability. On batting overseas, Pujara replies that there is always pressure to perform and they already showed improvement in the second innings. On his father's role in shaping his career, Che smiles and says that he means a lot and he's the one who coached him initially and always believed in him.
Victorious Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, is smiling and says that these things happen in Test cricket (talking about the close finish), ups and downs and you need to just keep calm. Adds that the odds were stacked against Australia and they were under pressure. Says that he told his bowlers to stay calm as they needed just one mistake to win the match. He is super proud of his four bowlers for taking 20 wickets and feels that it's their batting which needs to step up in this series. Calls the knock of Pujara priceless as that brought them back in the game. States that any lead was crucial and they built on it. Praises Pujara and Rahane's stand in the second innings says that it took a lot of grit and determination from them. Adds that their lower and lower middle order can put up a better show and these are the things they want to keep in mind going forward. He is looking forward to Perth Test and considers the momentum to be on their side.
Australian skipper, Tim Paine, says that the loss is shattering but he is proud of the fight. Admits that they had a number of opportunities but failed to capitalize. Mentions that they believed they can win this but their batsmen didn't score big. He's sad that he, Head and Marsh didn't bat long. Praises Pujara for his batting and calls his knocks the difference as they took a lot out of his bowling group. Feels that they can still win this Test series and is taking a lot of confidence from today. Signs off by hoping that the top order will take a leaf out of Pujara's book and fire in Perth. Informs that his finger is fine (took a blow while batting).
Rishabh Pant gives a quick interview near the boundary line. He admits that they were nervous as Australia were coming close. Adds that he is very happy to contribute to the win (took 11 catches in the match). Smiles and says that this is his sixth Test match and coincidentally also India's sixth Test win in Australia. States that that he enjoys chirping behind the wickets and disturb the batsmen's concentration. Stay around for the presentation.
One criticism from India's point of view was that the field was way too defensive in spite of the Aussies not playing their strokes. Even the lengths were more on the shorter side, which could have seen more of a mixture. However, in the end, Bumrah, Ashwin and Shami took 3 wickets each, which was too much to handle for the home side. Do not forget Ishant Sharma, who, in spite of picking just a solitary wicket, was hostile. He was the one who dismissed Travis Head this morning - had that not happened - who knows who would have been 1-0 up. Please stay tuned for the presentation.
They say that when Australia and New Zealand play cricket, it is never over till it is actually over. The Aussies made India toil so much that they struggled to dismiss even the last pair cheaply. 41, 31, 41, 31 and 32 - the last 5 wickets added 176 runs. Consumed 379 balls. The first 5 played out 340 deliveries. Great grit and determination shown but eventually, India were collectively better as a unit.
That late collapse from India in the second innings meant that Australia got an outside chance chasing 323. At one stage, they might have been expecting 400-450. They came out grittily, trying to see off the good balls but slowly but surely, the clock kept ticking. At the end of Day 4, India needed 6 wickets, while Australia needed 219 runs. Game over? Naah....
Australia came in with the thought of making 400. On a flat Adelaide track. They scraped to 235, that too, because of their lower order. Building on the 15-run lead, the Indians then batted better in their second dig but threw it away as well, as they folded from 282/5 to 307 all out. Nathan Lyon did take a 6-fer but most of those were gifted wickets.
Adelaide Oval is kind to India more often than not and it has not disappointed the visitors. They did not start in a great fashion though, being reduced to 41/4 and then 127/6. But Cheteshwar Pujara hung around to take the tourists to 250. Boy, didn't that turn out to be enough.
Phew! What a Test match. What a day. Started with the prospect of welcoming my milkman after the fall of the final wicket. That was at 6 am. Then, we thought we shall never have a second session. Eventually, we were just a ball away from having a third session on Day 5. Fantastic Test.

Ravichandran Ashwin To Josh Hazlewood OUT!
OUT! Caught at second slip! INDIA HAVE WON! Kohli is pumped up. The entire playing XI is pumped up. Or the playing XIII? Because Jadeja and Vihari are in the field as well. Full and outside off, Hazlewood looks to drive but gets a thick outside edge. It flies straight to Lokesh Rahul at second slip who takes it and immediately throws it up in the air in jubilation. Spare a thought for Josh Hazlewood. Spare another thought for Nathan Lyon. Ashwin does spare that thought and goes across to hug Lyon, congratulating him. Great to see such scenes. Ecstasy and disappointment along with sportsmanship. INDIA WIN BY 31 RUNS!

CLOSE CALL FOR LBW BUT ISHANT HAS OVERSTEPPED! So close. So, so close. Full and straight, Lyon misses his flick, getting beaten by pace and is hit on the pads. Ishant and the slip cordon start to appeal but then have a look behind. Umpire Dharmasena has his right hand outstretched. Ishant has his hands over his head. Kohli is not amused.

Jasprit Bumrah To Pat Cummins OUT!
OUT! Edged and taken! Cummins departs at last. He has hurt India with bat and ball in this Test. What a fight shown. Short and outside off, Pat arches back slightly and looks to cut but the ball is too close to him and he is undone by the extra bounce as well. Gets a thick outside edge and Virat Kohli at first slip makes no mistake. Patrick walks back disappointed but he needn't be. If the first 6 guys at the top had shown even half of this type of a resistance, Australia might have even won this Test. Well played.

Jasprit Bumrah To Nathan Lyon
EDGED, DROPPED! So near, yet so far from the world record! Would have become the first player to affect 12 dismissals in a Test. Full and outside off, Lyon looks to drive but gets an outside edge as the ball moves away. It goes at a comfortable height but Pant's initial reaction is to move to his left. Then he dives to his right which is a fraction late and that costs him. The catch is put down. A single is taken.

Mohammed Shami To Mitchell Starc OUT!
OUT! Caught behind! This was coming. This was always coming. The ploy of dangling the carrot works. Full and wide outside off, Starc gets tired of leaving balls alone and this time has a massive waft. Does not move his feet at all and gets a thick outside edge. He immediately looks up at the heavens in frustration. Yoga. Yoga might help. In developing patience, you see. 2 wickets away now, are India. Good resistance shown by Starc though. Stayed around for 97 balls with his fellow speedster. Thought we would have been home by now...

Jasprit Bumrah To Tim Paine OUT!
OUT! Paine falls! Bumrah returns and strikes first ball. Another good bowling change by Kohli. A nicely cooked short delivery by Bumrah, it's around off and rising extra off the surface. Paine tries to wheel a pull shot but fails to middle it. It catches the top edge, balloons behind and Pant moves across to his left to take the skier easily, his 10th in the match - a record for a visiting keeper in Australia. Massive setback for Australia's chances, if there was any. Into the tail now, India.
Jasprit Bumrah replaces Ishant Sharma from this end after Lunch.

Welcome back. How much longer? 4 wickets or 137 runs? A wicket quickly and this could be all over in a jiffy. Here's Ashwin to Paine...
... FINAL DAY.... FINAL SESSION?
Right then. India need 4 wickets to take a 1-0 series lead. ONLY FOR THE 5TH TIME would that happen, that India will register a win in the first Test in one of the SENA countries (South Africa, England, New Zealand, Australia). They have done that thrice in Kiwiland and once in South Africa. Heading towards another first. How long can Australia fight? Join us back at 1.10 pm local (0240 GMT).
One might feel that India are struggling to take wickets. However, that is not the reality. The bowling has been excellent but the batting has kept the bowlers at bay. Ashwin has been the main threat but he has not been the only one. Everyone has looked like he will get a wicket anytime.
For the hosts to take this match deep, it was imperative that one of Marsh or Head, if not both, bat for a long period of time. They started grittily but eventually, India's class got them separated on the field and then put them together in the dressing room. First, Head was bounced out by a brute of a bouncer from Ishant and then Bumrah nipped Marsh out with a beauty. However, since then, Paine and Cummins have fought hard, trying to forge a collapse, surviving a few close calls and even a dismissal, which was overturned on review.
We have a second session! Terrific one for India but good fight shown by Australia. The visitors were always the favourites and they have strengthened that tag even more.

NOT OUT AGAIN! DRS saves Australia again. No glove there. A flighted off spinner landing around off, Cummins gets forward with a big stretch and tries to defend it with his bat and pad together. It then is seen flying off the flap of his front pad towards short leg where KL Rahul dives forward to catch the ball. The Indians appeal and the finger has gone up. Cummins has a quick chat with his skipper and then takes the DRS. The replays roll in... Nothing on the Hot Spot. There is some spike on the Snicko. Wait, it's coming more due to Cummins' bat clipping the front pad. It has happened simultaneously but still it's quite evident that there was no bat involved. End of an eventful over.

OUT! THAT'S THE BIG FISH. WHAT A BALL BY BUMRAH! Bumrah coming around the wicket, bowls it on a length outside off, the ball reverse swings and comes in towards Marsh after pitching. Shaun tries to defend it but gets a faint edge on it and Pant behind the stumps takes a regulation catch. Marsh walks back but is called by Paine to discuss whether to take the review or not and they decide not to. The Hot Spot shows there was a very faint edge. This is the wicket India wanted. He was looking confident and comfortable out in the middle. But this delivery was too good even for a well-set Marsh to keep out. India now just 4 wickets away from a historic win.

A length ball, down the leg side, tucked through square leg for a single.
Jasprit Bumrah's turn to bowl for the first time this morning.
Drinks break. An absorbing first 75 minutes of Day 5. Australia lost Travis Head to Ishant's snorter but since then Shaun Marsh and Tim Paine have done well to form a partnership. India are probing hard and will be eyeing more wickets in the next hour. For the home team, longer this pair continues, better their chances become.

Mohammed Shami To Tim Paine
FOUR! Scary for the Aussies! A very well-directed bouncer by Shami, the ball rises onto Paine quickly, he tries to pull that away but only manages to glove it. The ball is wide to the left of Pant, who dives and tries to grab it with his right hand but unfortunately for him, the ball is out of his reach and goes to the fence. Pant probably should have gone for it with his left hand as he could have stretched more and reached the ball. Paine survives the scare.

FOUR! 10th Test fifty for Shaun Marsh! He reaches there with a firm pull shot off the back foot. The length was short and it assisted that strokeplay. All Shaun had to do was to pick the gap at mid-wicket which he did with aplomb. Fine innings by him, this is also his first such knock in the fourth innings of a Test match. He's the one holding the torch for Australia in this game. A danger man as far as India are concerned.

MASSIVE APPEAL FOR A CAUGHT BEHIND! Was it an outside edge? Rahane is not sure. Drama. Ashwin tosses it up outside off, on the full, Paine tries to drive it away but misses. The ball hits Pant's pads and lobs to first slip where Ajinkya Rahane catches and appeals. Now Ashwin is interested and so is Kohli but Rahane says that he is not sure. Eventually India decide not to review. Good call. Hot Spot shows nothing when the ball passes the bat.

Ishant Sharma To Travis Head OUT!
OUT! You beauty, Ishant! He has bounced Head out! An effort delivery. Sharma bends his back and hurls in a lethal short delivery right at the body of the batsman. Targeting the 'head' literally. Travis is caught in an awkward position as he tries to fend at it by taking his eyes off the ball. It hurries onto him from the surface and takes his gloves. The ball loops in the air and Rahane accepts the simplest of catches at gully. One of the heroes of the Dubai Test for Australia is on his way. Ishant is up and running with his hair flying all over his face. What a great nut that was! A snorter which just took off and hunted the batsman. Times have changed, an Indian bowler is bouncing out an Aussie batsman on the Australian turf. Half the side back in the hut now.

All set to get underway! The Indian players are on the field. Out come Shaun Marsh and Travis Head in the middle. The touring team is wasting no time and will start with the spin of Ravichandran Ashwin. A slip, short leg and silly point in place. Here we go...
Pitch report - Not a typical Day 5 looking pitch, feels Mark Waugh. A few indentations but it is still a good one for batting, reckons Waugh. Brendon Julian then spots the footmarks on both right-hander and left-hander's off stump which Ashwin will look to exploit. Mark mentions that once the ball gets soft, it will be easy for batting. Also, the former Aussie opener states about reverse swing which the Indian bowlers are able to get from the old ball.
When Test matches lasting hardly four days have become a norm, here we are, heading into Day 5 of the first Test of this much-anticipated India's tour Down Under. The tourists started as the favourites and are in with a good chance to take a series lead in Adelaide. For Australia, they recently achieved a draw by batting out the whole day in Dubai, in which, Travis Head and Tim Paine played a major role, alongside Usman Khawaja. Something similar will be expected from the former two today. Also, runs required are certainly gettable if the hosts somehow manage to bat three sessions. So Australia winning isn't entirely out of the window. A riveting day awaits us. Stay tuned for more updates...
... Day 5, Session 1 ...
Time to sign off. 219 runs and 6 wickets - That's where this Test match stands. All results still possible as we head into the final day. India are the firm favourites, no doubt and it will require a mixture of courage and luck for Australia to make a match out of it. It promises to be an exciting finish. Do join us at 1000 local (2330 GMT) for all the action. Cheers!
Set a daunting target of 323, Australia got off to a steady start but then lost Aaron Finch at the stroke of Tea in a dramatic manner. A couple of rash shots resulted in the demise of Marcus Harris and Usman Khawaja from the crease which left Australia tottering on 60/3. Peter Handscomb didn't last long either after showing good promise and it appeared that India will run away with the show today itself. But Shaun Marsh has shown a lot of application and maturity so far in his innings as he constructed a partnership with Travis Head to see off the day's play. The pair largely looked at ease and the home side will be hopeful of their chances on Day 5.
End of a fascinating day of Test cricket! India have gained a strong grip on this game and will be eyeing a series lead now. It all started for them in the morning when the pair of Pujara and Rahane batted with a lot of purpose to swell the lead. Post that, Rishabh Pant showed some attacking intent in the afternoon but then Nathan Lyon got into the act to finish with a 6-wicket haul.
