IND vs AUS 1st Test Day 3 Highlights: If the Indian batsmen were guilty of making errors in their shot selection on the opening day of the first Test against Australia, their counterparts did the same on the second day at Adelaide. To their credit, much like the Australian bowlers, the Indians rarely erred and whenever they did, corrected course almost immediately. R Ashwin picked three wickets and the seamers were jittery at times, but were quick to regain their rhythm. The bowlers also ensured runs were contained, putting further pressure on the Australian batting. At close of play, Australia was at 191/7 from 88 overs.
