India Cricket Live Score

India Cricket Live Score, Virat Kohli was nine runs short of his maiden century as India defied Australia in the afternoon session of the third day of the final Test at Adelaide Oval, here on Thursday.
India were 225 for 6 at tea, still trailing by 379 runs to Australia’s 604 for 7 declared.
The talented Kohli was batting on 91 and had put on 114 runs for the sixth wicket with Wriddhiman Saha (35) who was cleaned up by Ryan Harris at the stroke of tea.
Australia put its best bowlers infront in the second session as it looked to make further inroads into India’s score of 122 for 5 at lunch.
Both Kohli and Saha showed admirable guts in playing balls on merit, never flinching in face of a short delivery and rarely drawing into an indiscreet shot on their off-stump.
Kohli was assertive against Australian pacemen and hit all of them–Ryan Harris, Peter Siddle and Ben Hilfenhaus for at least a boundary each–to stamp his authority.
He played some lovely drives through the on-side and there were firm strokes of the backfoot too as he blunted the home team pacemen.
Kohli’s half century came when he flicked Hilfenhaus for a boundary bisecting the two fielders stationed at the mid-wicket region. His 50 came off 100 balls with five hits to the fence.
As the time for the new ball neared, Australia resorted to double-spin attack and it only hastened the scoring rate for the Indians.
