Then Pat Cummins ignored the weariness generated by bowling 19 overs in an Adelaide Oval cauldron that reached 40C to hit the stumps from side-on and run out centurion Cheteshwar Pujara from what became the last delivery of the day.

"I thought we bowled really well for four hours, probably pretty well for another hour and probably got it a bit wrong at the end there", Starc told reporters.

Pujara's 16th test century saved India after a disastrous start that saw them slump to 86 for five after lunch, falling to a combination of awful shot-making and quality Australian pace after captain Virat Kohli won the toss. "We've had a good day but we know that one good day will not win a series". There is a tentativeness, a certainty in him about the ball outside the off stump, about his shots, he plays it across the line as well.

Pujara then enjoyed 41-run and 62-run partnerships with Pant and Ashwin respectively before the 30-year-old, playing his 65th Test, was run out by Cummins, who along with Hazlewood and Starc each picked up two wickets.

Having crawled to his half-century, Pujara ramped up as he ran out of partners, slogging a couple of sixes as shadows crept across the ground.

Harris showed great composure during his innings of 26, which eventually came to an end when he was caught at bat-pad off the bowling of Ravi Ashwin.

Spinner Nathan Lyon struck twice to expose India's tail after lunch, having the recalled Rohit Sharma slog-sweep to a fielder for 37 before Pant fell for 25 feathering an edge behind.

In marched superstar Kohli to a huge roar from the crowd, but a stunning catch by Usman Khawaja at gully off a Pat Cummins delivery saw him back in the pavilion for only three off 16 balls, with India in trouble.

'Stuck my hand out and it stuck.

"They are pretty poor shots, really, from top-order worldwide players", Ricky Ponting said in commentary for the Seven Network.

Earlier, seamer Josh Hazlewood grabbed two wickets in the morning session, removing Ajinkya Rahane (13) and the out-of-form Lokesh Rahul (two). "I think we'd bite your arm off".
