Australia at home have only lost five of their last 27 Tests but Adelaide is the great leveller.

Kohli loves it there. Last series in 2014 he was just a thing of beauty with twin tonnes. He has more Adelaide 100's than the entire Australian team. Three v Khawaja 1 and Marsh 1.

Kohli averages 98 in Adelaide- his first ever Test 100 was there too. in 2012. He's improved every time he's come here, if he improves again we are in all sorts.

It is supposed to be 39 degrees if Australia get caught bowling and our bats can't back us up then this could be a slog which will then impact on the next Test. Four bowlers with no back up could be hard.

Head is pretty much the only fifth option. Finch, Harris, Khawaja, Handscomband Marsh have eight SS wickets between them.

Ashwin will be interesting- loves lefties and averages less than 20 and we have Harris, Khawaja, Marsh and Head. But he hasn't bowled well here in the past and Australia is a hard place to bowl finger spin.

Our top 7 have the least runs of an Australian seven since 1979- which was of course depleted because of the WSC. The pressure on them will be huge. I watched Finch last week and v the new bowl I am worried.

Shaw was going to be great to watch, but I like watching Pujara too- if he is in that number three spot he needs to help Kohli and avoid Lyon.

So can anyone tell me at what point cricket will be on free to air ?

Rahul gone for two, caught by Finch in the slips, bowled by Hazelwood. Excellent set up.

Kohli gone. India are chasing the loose balls at the moment, excellent bowling from Aus.

If Australia can keep them to about 200 they will have set themselves up nicely for a win. Great effort today.

I am not too sure, Adelaide this season has been very low scoring.

251, 268, 207, 313, 246, 273, 103, 231, 505 and 357.

Av is 275.

They've been leaving grass on it like a d/n pitch. Tomorrow will be the better day to bat than today so ideally Australia want to get them out tonight but not leave anytime to have to face 10 overs.

It's interesting the change in the Oval though.

If they can avoid the typical batting collapse and bat a full day or two, they will be every chance. I’d bet on India stepping up in the 2nd innings though with the bat.

Typical Australia, although India has done well to hang in there, they should have been batting a while ago.

Great day, Australia bowled as a pack and I will take 250 total for certain. India went so hard at the ball and Australia were so smart in swing and then wide watch them chase.

Khawaja's fielding has improved so much since he lost weight. Great catch.

Advantage Australia but bowling is easily their strength, the bats have a huge job to back it up, particularly given they have some pretty good swing bowlers...but they do have Ishant for some reason.
