India vs Australia Live Score and Commentary

AUSTRALIA WIN BY 333 RUNS.

The Indian juggernaut was brought to a close by an incisive spin attack of the tourists, who poked where it hurt and managed to riddle the batting line-up with holes that were difficult to fill. The pitch assisted the duo of O'Keefe and Nathan Lyon well, turning and jagging the ball around to dismantle the much-vaunted batting line-up. Kohli misjudging the line and getting bowled highlighted India's clueless approach to the Australian bowling, which is, hopefully, just an abberation.

We'll be back with the live coverage of the second Test at Bengaluru that starts on the 4th of March. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for all cricket-related updates. Goodbye!
