Rohit Sharma's CenturyRohit Sharma scored his ninth Test century to deflate the Australian bowling attack. He held his nerves while others succumbed to Todd Murphy, scoring 120 before getting bowled by Pat Cummins.

Suryakumar Yadav Getting Bowled Suryakumar Yadav had a forgetful debut. He got bowled by Nathan Lyon on 8, which lefts fans fuming as they questioned the team management's decision to play him ahead of Shubman Gill.

Todd Murphy Five-Wicket HaulTodd Murphy completed his five-wicket haul on his Test debut after getting rid of another debutant KS Bharat. Murphy looked like he has been playing Test cricket for years, more consistent and more threatening than Nathan Lyon.

Ravindra Jadeja's Half-CenturyRavindra Jadeja's comeback got only better after he backed up his five-wicket haul with a composed fifty. Jadeja is batting on 66, and he will love to join his captain Rohit as the second centurion of this match.
