His wicket left Australia 3-59 on day two in response to India's 250, with Peter Handscomb and Travis Head settling as the hosts reached 4-117 at tea. Head shared a valuable 50-run seventh-wicket partnership with Pat Cummins.

The left-hander's highest score from his past 13 Test innings is 40 and his six consecutive single-figure scores are the most for any Australian batting in the top five since 1888. Batting with Cummins, Head notched his second test half-century.

The temperature in Adelaide neared 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) but cloud cover provided favourable conditions for India's attack.

"Pujara was like a sage on this first day". However, their stand was broken as soon as the second new ball was taken.

"It's not as easy as the old Adelaide Oval wicket", said Harris, who was caught in close for 26 after nicking onto his pads.

"We know most likely at some stage in this series we'll need him, so we're taking the opportunity at the moment to send him back to play a shield game and get more cricket under his belt, knowing at some stage we're probably going to need him". "I feel it's extremely well-poised and every run is going to be gold dust here".

India bowled with accuracy and stifled the scoring on the two-paced pitch. On just the third ball of the inning, a fuller, inswinging delivery from Ishant took Finch's inside edge to clatter on to the stumps.

After Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh fell to reckless shots, and debutant Marcus Harris to Ravichandran Ashwin's brilliant variations, there followed a painstaking afternoon station in which the operators of the iconic heritage-listed scoreboard would have been excused a siesta.

Ashwin continued to menace Australia with bounce and spin, which accounted for Khawaja who was caught behind off the glove.

"But I thought the Australian batsmen allowed themselves to be bogged down a bit too much until Travis Head started to dictate terms".

The experienced Pujara faced 246 balls in his gutsy knock - passing 5 000 test runs for his 16th test century - as the wickets tumbled around him, including superstar captain Virat Kohli for three.

With Smith and David Warner serving bans for ball-tampering, Paine's team have had little to celebrate and even less inclination to indulge in chest-thumping aggression.

"I personally don't think any Australian side is vulnerable at home", Kohli told reporters at Adelaide Oval. He received treatment on his left shoulder just before lunch and briefly left the field. He got his last 30 runs in no time and it was only because of Cummins' sensational run out on the brink of Day 1 Pujara had to walk back to the dressing room without a star mark on the top-right of his score.

Mohammed Shami (6) showed no patience at all and went after a short delivery from Josh Hazlewood (3-52) only to be caught behind down leg side, as India's innings came to a quick end.
