Wishes Pour In For Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma On Their 1st Marriage Anniversary


As Team India skipper Virat Kohli and wife Anushka Sharma celebrate their first marriage anniversary, wishes poured in from different parts of the world for the couple. Kohli had tied the knot with Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma in Italy last year. Since then, Anushka Sharma has accompanied her husband on quite a few cricket tours, be it with the national team or in the Indian Premier League (IPL). With the Indian team currently touring Australia, Anushka Sharma recently arrived in Adelaide, a few days before their anniversary celebrations and was also spotted among the spectators during the first Test.

Among cricketers, India’s wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha was one of the first to wish the star couple on their anniversary.

Saha wished his skipper Kohli all the happiness and love in the world.


Anushka was spotted in the crowd during Day 2 of the opening Test between India and Australia. In the video posted by fans on Twitter, Anushka is seen sitting with the spectators while Ishant Sharma was bowling to Pat Cummins during the 67th over.

The 30-year-old Kohli has also at times appreciated Anushka’s presence in the crowd by dedicating his milestones to his lady luck.

During the Test series against England earlier this year, Kohli had dedicated his century to Anushka by reaching under his shirt and kissing the ring he had attached to a chain.

The Indian skipper had also blown a flying kiss to his wife, who was watching from the stands in Birmingham.

Meanwhile, Virat and Anushka, who never fail to engage fans through their tweets, had also received the “Golden Tweets” honour from Twitter India earlier for their post on the occasion of Karva Chauth.

India vs Australia: India Beat Australia For 1st Test Win Down Under In 10 Years


Australia’s tail fought valiantly on the final day of the Test, almost pulling off the impossible but India kept pegging away to finally clinch a much-deserved win on Australian soil.

Pat Cummins (28), Mitchell Starc (28) and Nathan Lyon (38 not out) made valuable contributions with the bat to frustrate Virat Kohli’s team but fell agonisingly short after Josh Hazlewood (13) was caught at second slip by KL Rahul off the bowling of Ashwin.

Shaun Marsh, who was 31 not out at stumps on Day 4, scored his 10th Test half-century but fell for 60 to a brilliant Jasprit Bumrah. Tim Paine also showed some fight on the final day but Bumrah was again at hand to dismiss the Australian captain for 41 and put India on the brink.

However, Starc and Cummins added 41 runs for eighth wicket to give the hosts a glimmer of hope. Mohammed Shami broke the partnership to give India the crucial breakthrough but it was then the turn of Lyon and Cummins to frustrate the Indians.

The Australian pair added another 31 runs to put Australia within touching distance of the target. However, Bumrah got Cummins to edge a delivery to Virat Kohli at slips  who after taking the catch threw the ball down hard at the ground.

With India needing just one wicket to win, in walked Australia’s No.11 Hazlewood, who batted bravely for 43 balls. Lyon and Hazlewood strung together a 32-run stand for the final wicket as Australia started dreaming of an unlikely victory.

However, Ashwin dashed the home side’s hopes with a flighted delivery finding the edge of Hazlewood’s bat.

Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant made history by matching the record 11 catches in a Test currently held by England’s Jack Russell and South Africa’s AB de Villiers.

In doing so, he beat the record 10 catches in a game by an Indian that was previously held by Wriddhiman Saha.

It was a huge breakthrough for Virat Kohli’s men, with Australia always proving a tough hunting ground.

Australia resumed the final day needing another 219 for victory with four wickets down, but lost their last two specialist batsmen before lunch, shifting the odds heavily in India’s favour.

Marsh and Travis Head had started cautiously, grinding out 11 runs in the opening seven overs before seamer Ishant Sharma struck with the score on 115, bowling a bouncer that caught Head’s bat as he tried to fend it off and Ajinkya Rahane took the catch at gully.

Paine joined Marsh and they upped the ante, capitalising on some loose balls from Shami to chip away steadily and close the gap.

By lunch Australia had fought to 186 for 6, still needing a further 137 runs for victory, with Paine not out 40 and Pat Cummins on five.

But in the second over after they resumed Paine top edged a pull shot from Bumrah and Pant easily took a catch.

Cummins, who survived two big reviews within four balls, with the technology both times going in his favour, showed fantastic application with Mitchell Starc in a 41-run eighth wicket stand.

And when the runs needed dropped below 100, the crowd dared to dream before Starc fell to Shami for 28. It brought Nathan Lyon to the crease and he got the pulses racing with a quick 38 to set up a tense finale before Hazlewood departed.

India vs Australia Live Score, 1st Test Day 5: Travis Head Departs, India On Top In Adelaide


(Play fantasy league and win cash daily)

Live updates between India Vs Australia, 1st Test, Day 5, straight from Adelaide Oval

05:55 IST: Paine chops the short delivery and a misfield by Shami allows them to take two runs, first sloppy effort by India in the field.

05:50 IST: Just one run off the Shami over. Marsh is looking solid in the middle. Can he rescue Australia.

05:45 IST: Mohammed Shami (9.0-3-15-2) is back into the attack. Australia need 199 more runs to win.

05:41 IST: FOUR!! Short and wide from Ishant Sharma and Tim Paine obliges. The batsman, on the backfoot, cuts the ball away for a boundary to get off the mark. These are crucial runs for the hosts.

05:31 IST: Captain Tim Paine is the new man in. 

05:29 IST: OUT!! Ishant Sharma strikes and Virat Kohli is absolutely pumped. A perfect well-directed bouncer from Ishant, Head had no idea where the ball is as he defends it. The ball goes high in the air and Rahane completes the process. What a start for the visitors.

05:23 IST: Australia 111/4 in 55 overs, need 212 runs to win.

05:17 IST: Ashwin floats the ball on middle and leg, Shaun Marsh comes on his front foot and looks to defend but the straighter one induces an edge and lobs towards the vacant short leg region. Had there been a fielder there, this was a straightforward catch

05:11 IST: Three runs have been scored in the first three overs. Michael Clarke is of the opinion that if Marsh and Head are dismissed then it is game over for the hosts.

05:05 IST: Day five session times —

Session 3: 10:30 am IST – 12:30 pm IST

05:03 IST: R Ashwin starts with a maiden over. Shaun Marsh has negotiated the Indian spinner quite well.

05:00 IST: Shaun Marsh and Travis Head walk out to the middle. R Ashwin to start the proceedings with the ball for India.

04:46 IST:  Shaun Marsh getting into the groove for the final day of the opening Test. The first session of the Adelaide Test might decide the outcome of the game.

04:44 IST: Big bowling day for the Quartet with six Aussie wickets to go.

04:42 IST: The first session of the day will be a big, big one for both teams.

04:40 IST: Hello and welcome to the live blog of the final day of the opening Test between India and Australia.

Australia need to make history to win. The only successful fourth innings Test run chase of more than 300 at Adelaide came in 1902, when the hosts made 315 to beat England, with the biggest in modern times the 239 West Indies managed in 1982. The home side can take some comfort, though, by Western Australia in a domestic match last month scoring 313 to beat South Australia here when Marsh scored 163 not out. Opener Aaron Finch — who survived being given out lbw second ball when a review showed Ishant Sharma had overstepped the crease — made just 11 in his second failure of the match. He was caught behind off spinner Ravichandran Ashwin when the ball whistled past his glove. He chose not to review the decision, which was a mistake. Replays showed the third umpire would have overturned it.

Debutant Marcus Harris matched his first innings score of 26, hitting three crunching boundaries before he was caught by Rishabh Pant off Mohammed Shami, getting an edge on an attempted cut shot. Australia desperately needed the experienced Usman Khawaja to stick around but he decided to run down the pitch to an Ashwin delivery on nine and sliced it to Rohit Sharma, who took a difficult catch. And when Handscomb miscued a pull shot off Shami on 14 to Pujara, they were in deep trouble.

Play had started 30 minutes early to make up for rain disruptions on Saturday, with Australia desperate for an early breakthrough to build on the momentum after Virat Kohli fell to Lyon near the close on day three. But two fours from Pujara off Josh Hazlewood in the second over of the day set the tone. The right-hander brought up 50 — his 20th in Tests — with a three off Lyon and hardly looked troubled until the off-spinner fooled him half an hour before lunch and Finch caught him off bat and pad.

It was a crucial 87-run partnership with Rahane, who survived a bat-pad catch decision off Lyon on review. The vice-captain rubbed salt in the wound by smacking the next ball for four and brought up his 16th half-century with another boundary. He was eventually out going for a needless reverse sweep off Lyon, with Starc picking up the catch. The aggressive Pant went in search of quick runs as India’s lead approached 300, whacking three fours and a six in succession off one Lyon over. But when he went for another big hit and fell for a quick-fire 28, it prompted a collapse from 282 for 5 to 307 all out.

1st Test: Nathan Lyon Explains Why Aaron Finch Didn’t Opt For Review


After failing to impress in the first innings, Aaron Finch managed to score only 11 runs in the second innings on Day 4 of the Adelaide Test. Finch’s dismissal has now become a major talking point in cricketing circles because the Australian opener decided not to opt for a review, even after taking a quick suggestion from his batting partner Marcus Harris. Finch was dismissed by Ravichandran Ashiwin in the 12th over of the Australian second innings. In the wake of Finch not opting to challenge the on-field umpire’s decision, Nathan Lyon has attempted to clear the air by backing the batsman’s idea of not opting for the DRS. Lyon said that the review might have not helped the opener.

“I don’t think he was going to get away with it. I spoke to the third umpire and it was out anyway. There was inconclusive evidence to overturn the decision,” said Lyon in the post-match press conference.

Finch is playing his first Test series at home, after making his Test debut against Pakistan in Dubai in October this year.  

Unfortunately, Finch had failed to impress with the bat against Pakistan, too. Further talking about his poor run of Test form, Lyon said, “Finchy’s fine. It’s been a great learning curve for Aaron. He’ll take a lot out of this first Test match at home and be better for the run.”

Australia ended Day 4 of the Adelaide Test on 104 for four, requiring another 219 runs to win with six wickets in hand. At stumps, Shaun Marsh (31) and Travis Head (11) were at the crease, battling it out for Australia to avoid the defeat.

Mushfiqur Rahim Steers Bangladesh To Easy Win Against Windies In 1st ODI


Rovman Powell dismissed Shakib for 30 to break the stand but Soumya Sarkar killed off the visitors’ hopes with a brief cameo of 19 from 13 balls, which included two fours and a six.

Mushfiqur, who hit five boundaries in his patient knock, pushed Roston Chase for a single to complete his 31st fifty in ODIs before an outside edge to leg spinner Devendra flew to third man for two runs to wrap up the victory.

Earlier, opener Liton Das scored 41 off 57 balls with five fours for the home side, but not before he was reprieved on five off a no-ball by Kemar Roach.

The Windies owed their total to 43 off 59 balls by opener Shai Hope and contributions from lower-order batsmen Roston Chase and Keemo Paul, who made 32 and 36 runs respectively.

The visitors, who opted to bat first, had been restricted to 127-6 after 40 overs despite Hope’s effort, but Chase and Paul put on 51 runs for the seventh wicket to give their bowlers something to fight for.

Paul hit two sixes and a four in his 28-ball innings before he was dismissed by Mustafizur in the final over.

Left-arm pacer Mustafizur finished with 3-35 after fellow fast bowler Mashrafe grabbed 3-30 playing his 200th ODI — the first Bangladeshi to do so.

Mashrafe was named man of the match for his effort.

“The West Indies are very dangerous in this format but our bowlers were brilliant,” Mashrafe said after the match.

Windies’ Powell blamed his side’s batting for their defeat.

“We just didn’t bat as well as we wanted to and that brought about our downfall. The players who got starts on such a hard wicket should have carried on,” he said.

The second match of the series will be held at the same venue on Tuesday.

Ricky Ponting Reacts To Australian Fans Booing Virat Kohli In 1st Test At Adelaide Oval


Virat Kohli makes a statement wherever he plays and that makes him a highly valued cricketer all around the world. Ahead of the Border-Gavaskar series, a discussion on how to contain Indian team skipper Kohli broke out between Australian players. Australian greats like Jason Gillespie and Ricky Ponting also gave their opinions on the matter. However, when Kohli came out to bat on the third day of the first Test he received a warm applause from the fans but there were a section of fans which booed him.

However, former Australian skipper Ricky Ponting believes that Kohli world have faced worse than this in his career.

“I don’t like seeing it at all,” Ponting told cricket.com.au.

“It didn’t worry me as a player when it happened in England a couple times. You’ve almost got to accept it as acknowledgement for what you’ve done in the game. But I’d rather not see that happen at all.

“It’ll be water off a duck’s back (for Kohli), I’m sure. He’s probably had worse things happen to him on a cricket field, I would have thought, than getting booed by a couple of spectators as he walks on,” the 43-year-old added.

Kohli, however, did not fare too well with his batting performance in the Adelaide Test, scoring three and 34 runs in the first and second innings, respectively.

Despite his low scores, Kohli became the fourth Indian to score 1,000 runs in Australia. Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid had earlier achieved this feat Down Under.
