Ravindra Jadeja: (When asked on the new hairstyle)Was at NCA, there was nothing to do after two hours of training, so, I got sometime to do something with my hair. Very happy with the way I bowled, playing after five months, it's tough but was prepared for it, working harder on my fitness and skills at NCA. (On his return to test cricket) I played first class cricket after a long time, gave my a lot of confidence to come here and do well here. (Bowling to both left-hander and right-handed batters) I was bowling to into the stumps, there was no bounce on the wicket, was targeting the stumps, the odd ball was going turning and odd ball going straight. (Dismissals of Smith and Labuschagne) Obviously, being a left-arm spinner, if you get batters out by caught behind or stumped, it's always a delight. (On finding his rhythm) Was working harder on my bowling when I was in Bangalore, I was bowling ten to twelve overs every day, I was working on my rhythm, I knew I had to be bowling long spells and rhythm holds the key. First thing is to gain confidence, playing after a long time, don't have to think too much about the injury, just go out there to enjoy, grabbed it with both the hands.

Match Day Summary

A great day for India as they started with a couple of early wickets of Usman Khawaja and David Warner. 

Australia had a couple of decent partnerships. The one between Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith was cruising before the former was lured for a flighted ball off Jadeja and consequently got stumped. 

Ravindra Jadeja wreaked havoc in the second session as Australia lost six wickets and managed 98 runs. After returning to the red-ball format after seven months, Jadeja bagged his career's 11th five-wicket haul. 

Ashwin, too, chipped in with three wickets to go past 450 Test wickets. He joined Anil Kumble to achieve thr feat from India and overall ninth player in the world. Australia were bowled put for 177 as no batter could cross the 50-run mark with Labuschagne (49) being the highest. 

Indian opener Rohit Sharma blasted against the Australia, particularly against his counterpart, Pat Cummins, to give the hosts a flying start.

Rohit remained unbeaten on 56 and his opening partner KL Rahul was dismmissed at the stroke of Day 1 by Todd Murphy, who claimed his maiden international wicket. India are trailing by 100 runs with nine wickets in hand. 

Australia have an upheaval task to get quick wickets or say to comeback in the game after falling behind on most of the day.

IND vs AUS: Todd Murphy dismiss KL Rahul to pick first wicket on tour

16:23 (IST)9 FEB 2023

Just three overs left for the day and India have almost dominated the day with both ball and bat. Rohit Sharma is just one big hit away from completing his half-century. However, Australia will hope for an outstanding spell from their spinners just like Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin provided for India.

16:10 (IST)9 FEB 2023

Rahul hits first boundary of the innings

What's wrong with Cummins today? Gettings smashed for anywhere he bowls... This time a half-volley was pit away across the covers for a four. The first boundary came from Rahul's willow.

IND 59/0 (18 overs)

16:04 (IST)9 FEB 2023

IND 46/0 (14 overs)

15:32 (IST)9 FEB 2023

Rohit has paced well India's innings as he tore Cummins apart in the start. KL Rahul is taking his time to play the big shots and has been a mere watchful on his captain doing the business at the other end. 

Scott Boland has bowled some tight overs wth just two runs coming from as many overs when Cummins was being taken to the boundary ropes with red-ball. 

IND 33/0 (8 ovrers)

15:23 (IST)9 FEB 2023

14:46 (IST)9 FEB 2023


Ravindra Jadeja bagged a fifer on return to Test cricket after seven months. The left-arm spinner trapped Peter Handscomb, the last recognised batter of Australia, for lbw with a full and quick delivery. What an impressive spell this has been from the all-rounder to turn things for the hosts.

What's left in the final session?

Players are back for the final session of the day. India are just two wickets away from blowing away Australia for a mediocre score. A lot depends on Peter Handscomb's art of playing spin bowling and the support he receives from Nathan Lyon from the other end.

Alex Carey (37) and Peter Handscomb (29*) stitched a solid 53-run stand as both took on the spinners. Carey was the agressor playing the sweeps and the reverse sweeps before Ravichandran Ashwin cleaned him up to claim his 450th Test wicket.

That's an end of a brilliant came from Carey and Ashwin picked his 450th Test wicket.

The Australian wicketkeeper-batter is piling up runs with a flurry of boundaries. He swept one against Axar Patel before hammering a couple of more boundaries against Siraj in the next over.

AUS 162/5 (53 overs)

13:31 (IST)9 FEB 2023

IND vs AUS: Carey slams Siraj for boundaries

Alex Carey hit two boundaries in the 50th over off Mohammed Siraj. The southpaw smashed the first shot through cover-point for a boundary off a full-length delivery and followed with a nonchalant drive that left the speedster with questions in his mind.

AUS 144/5 (50 overs)

13:21 (IST)9 FEB 2023

Carey-Handscomb display will to counter spin

Alex Carey and Peter Handscomb are continuing from where Smith and Labuschagne left. Both the batters are hitting boundaries off Jadeja with a free mindset. A partnership from nowhere is likely to spur Australia's big total.

AUS 135/5 (48 overs)

13:09 (IST)9 FEB 2023

IND vs AUS: Alex Carey confident with unorthodox shots

FOUR!!! Alex Carey has attempted the reverse sweep for the second time to fetch boundaries. Gets one past the point off Jadeja to put some runs on the board. He went for the same shot in the next ball but found a single.

AUS 129/5 (46 overs) 

13:00 (IST)9 FEB 2023

IND vs AUS: Jadeja cleans up Steve Smith

An arm ball was enough to end Australia's star batter. Smith leaned forward to defend but was beaten by the sharp turns and his sticks were shattered behind. A big wicket from India's perspective and Jadeja picks his third after lunch.

Steve Smith 37 (107 balls; 7 fours) b Ravindra Jadeja

12:53 (IST)9 FEB 2023

IND vs AUS: Steve Smith shows intent against Axar Patel

Smith smashed three boundaries in the 41st over as Australia crossed 100. Axar was persistent with his full deliveries and Smith punished them over the extra cover fence and one through the backward point.

AUS 105/4 (41 overs)

12:50 (IST)9 FEB 2023

IND vs AUS: Peter Handscomb opens arms against Jadeja

Handscomb punched the short ball through the point to score his first runs of the innings with a boundary. In the final ball of the over, Handscomb whipped it through mid-wicket and some great running by the Australians helped them pick up four runs even though Ashwin managed to pull off the ball at the boundary.

AUS 93/4 (40 overs)

12:45 (IST)9 FEB 2023

The two wickets for Jadeja could be enough for a sudden collapse of the Australian batting order. However, Steve Smith will be the man to be dismissed and not to forget that Peter Handscomb is a great player of the spin. 

12:35 (IST)9 FEB 2023

IND vs AUS: Ravindra Jadeja gets two in two

Ravindra Jadeja hit the fuller length round from the wicket. Renshaw was beaten by the turn while attempting to flick one and the ball struck his pads. A loud appeal got the consent of the on-field umpire. Australia went with the review but the decision stayed on the umpire's call. Renshaw goes for a golden-duck as Australia lose two quick wickets after lunch.

Matt Renshaw 0 (1 ball) lbw b Ravindra Jadeja 

12:30 (IST)9 FEB 2023

Jadeja gets Labuschagne on 49

Ravindra bowled flighted delivery pitched outside off as Labuschagne was lured into play the cover drive. Stretched forward and missed. A quick glovework from KS Bharat to inflict his first international stumping brought the end of the Australian No.3 and also the 82-run stand along with Smith.

Smith hits Shami for boundary after lunch

The players are back for the second session and Smith fetches a boundary on the third ball of the session. Pulled the short delivery behind the square for four runs.

AUS 81/2 (33 overs)

12:12 (IST)9 FEB 2023

There was some weird bounce extracted from the Nagpur pitch. But that hasn't perturbed either Smith or Labuschagne as both of them were seen playing the balls lately.

12:00 (IST)9 FEB 2023

Just for your Information

Steve Smith was dropped on 6 by Virat Kohli at first slip off Axar Patel's bowling in the 16th over. Although the Aussie vice-captain hasn't looked threating at the moment but his longevity at thr crease can be worrisome for the hosts.

IND vs AUS: Lunch Break Summary

Australia's stylish pair Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne forged an undefeated stand of 74 runs to bring the visitors back into the innings after Indian pacers dismissed both their openers early in the day. 

Labuschagne was fluent with his strokeplay to give a testatment of his game sense against spin. The Australian pair delivered upon their expectations as they practiced against India's domestic spinners in the nets. A great session for both the sides but India will have to find a solution to break this partnership to avoid an indomitable score. 

11:31 (IST)9 FEB 2023

IND vs AUS: Labuschagne smashes Ashwin for four

FOUR!!! The Australia No.3 unleashes the paddle sweep shot off R Ashwin. Played it from outside the off-stump. Terrific form of batting by Labuschagne.

AUS 76/2 (32 overs)

11:23 (IST)9 FEB 2023

Labuschagne show class

FOUR!!! Labuschagne shifts slightly toward leg-side to and plays with his bottom hand as the ball finds the gap between mid-on and mid-wicket for boundary. What a great shot and what a player of spin Labuschagne is. 

AUS 66/2 (29 overs)

11:16 (IST)9 FEB 2023

Australia bat smartly against India

The two Australian batters not only stopped the seamers from making huge inroads but also keeping the spinners at bay. Smith is biding his time to score runs but Labuschagne is leaving no room to punish the balls in his reach. If they survive this session then Australia can hope for a big target.

AUS 59/2 (27 overs)

11:06 (IST)9 FEB 2023

50 partnership for the Australian pair

FOUR!!! Smith moved back swiftly to play the punch shot past the cover region for his third boundary, which also completed the 50-plus run-stand between him and Labuschagne.

AUS 54/2 (23 overs)

11:00 (IST)9 FEB 2023

Fifty for Australia

Ravichandran Ashwin comes into the attack and Labuschagne plundered a couple of runs on the first ball as Australia put 50 runs on the board. This has been great display of character by the two phenomenal batters of Test cricket.

AUS 50/2 (22 overs)

10:57 (IST)9 FEB 2023

IND vs AUS: Labuschahne looks in great touch

FOUR!!! Once again the Australia No.3 hanged back to put the good lentgh ball past right of the mid-wicket. A shot that made him look genius.

IND vs AUS: Great intent by Marnus Labuschagne

FOUR!!! Labuschagne hanged back in the crease to play with the open face of the bat as the ball goes past the boundary in the third men region.

AUS 44/2 (18 overs)

10:48 (IST)9 FEB 2023

IND vs AUS: Smith hits Jadeja for a boundary

FOUR!!! The movement of the feet was outstanding as Smith shimmied down the pitch and made the best use of his wrists to flick one over mid-wicket for a boundary.

AUS 40/2 (17 overs)

10:36 (IST)9 FEB 2023

Australia promises to comeback in the innings

The Australians have somewhere managed to keep Indians away from the wickets as two of their best batters have negated the pace threat and also tackled the spin with great composure thus far.

AUS 29/2 (14 overs)

10:28 (IST)9 FEB 2023

IND vs AUS: Axar Patel was close to dismiss Steve Smith

Axar Patel pitched the ball outside the off-stump as it beat Smith, who attempted to play a cover drive. Two runs came from the over, including a run taken through a bye. Srikar Bharat fumbled a bit and perhaps it could have been a chance for a stumping.

AUS 29/2 (12 overs)
