4th Test Day 1: India 69/1 at Lunch vs Australia

Sydney, Jan 3: India were 69/1 after 24 overs at Lunch on day one of the 4th and the final Test against Australia here on Thursday.

Earlier, India won the toss and elected to bat.

Opener K L Rahul’s poor form continued here too after losing his wicket to Hazlewood in the 

third ball of the very 2nd over after being caught off at first slip by Marsh.

Rahul’s 9 came off in 6 balls with 2 fours.

After Rahul’s departure Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara for the second wicket partnership scored 59 runs.

However, Pujara (16) and Mayank (42) were at the crease when Lunch was declared. 

Australian fast bowlers kept Pujara and Agarwal on their toes, but a dogged effort with the bat has ensured that India go into the break fairly happy after the early wicket. 

For Australia Hazlewood gave an early breakthrough by taking wicket of Rahul.
