The opening day of the first Test against Australia was a near-nightmare for the Indian side, with Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and Nathan Lyon amongst wickets. But Cheteshwar Pujara raised his hand to push India to 250 for 9 before the stumps were drawn on the first day. The No. 3 batsman crafted a brilliant 123, studded with seven fours and two sixes. While India may not end up with a very high score, cricket pundit Ayaz Memon believes that 250-plus is a healthy score considering the circumstances Virat Kohli's side found themselves in.
