Australia learned a quick lesson from the Nagpur Test defeat. Scored 263 runs in the first innings and effectively faced the Indian bowlers for 78.4 overs.. If not a single Aussie batsman could register a half century in the first test, two batsmen registered 50+ scores in the Delhi test..

Australia, who won the toss and chose to bat in the Delhi Test, were given a good start by the openers. David Warner and Usman Khawaja played cautiously and added 50 runs for the first wicket. But David Warner, who scored 15 runs in 44 balls with 3 fours, got out after giving a catch to Srikar Bharat on the bowling of Mohammed Shami.

David Warner’s hand was injured when a bouncer hit Mohammed Siraj’s bowling before getting out. Warner, who resumed batting after physio treatment, struggled to deal with the bouncers.

After Warner’s dismissal, Marnus Labushane and Usman Khawaja added a 41-run partnership for the second wicket. Marnus Labushen, who scored 18 runs off 25 balls with 4 fours, was dismissed lbw off the bowling of Ravichandran Ashwin. Even though the umpire declared not out, DRS took the result in favor of Team India…

Labuschenne turned back in frustration as the TV replay clearly showed the ball hitting the wickets. Ravichandran Ashwin ducked Steve Smith on the last ball of the same over. Steve Smith, who bowled 2 balls, caught wicketkeeper Srikar Bharat and reached the pavilion.

Steve Smith’s dismissal for the fourth time in the last two years…within three balls ICC no. 1 batter, No.2 batter joined by Pavilion. Travis Head, who scored 12 runs in 30 balls with a four and a six, was dismissed on the bowling of Mohammed Shami.

Usman Khawaja and Peter Handscomb added 59 runs for the fifth wicket at this stage. Usman Khawaja scored 81 runs in 125 balls with 12 fours and a six. The pavilion was joined by KL Rahul’s eye-catching catch off the bowling of Ravindra Jadeja.. Alex Carey took a 5-ball catch to Kohli off the bowling of Ashwin and was ducked out…

At this stage, Pat Cummins and Peter Handscomb added 59 runs for the seventh wicket. Aussie captain Pat Cummins, who scored 33 runs off 59 balls with 3 fours and 2 sixes, was lbw off the bowling of Jadeja. Jaddu clean bowled Todd Murphy off the last ball of the same over…

Mohammad Shami clean bowled Nathan Lyon who scored 10 runs off 26 balls with 2 fours. On 68, Peter Handscomb caught Ashwin off the bowling of Jadeja. But as it turned out to be a no ball, the players going to the pavilion had to come back to the ground…

Kuhneman, who was playing the first Test, was clean bowled by Mohammed Shami to end Australia’s innings. Peter Handscomb, who scored 72 runs off 142 balls with 9 fours, remained unbeaten. Among the Indian bowlers, Shami got 4 wickets while Ashwin and Jadeja took 3 wickets.
