India has got off to a fine start with the help of superb century by Cheteshwar Pujara (batting) and some useful contribution by Mayank Agarwal at the other end (77 runs) on the first day of the fourth and final Test against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).
Resuming the afternoon session from 69/1, Cheteshwar Pujara and opener Mayank Agarwal continued to play sensibly, taking their side past the 100-run mark in 30.1 overs.
Off-spinner Nathyan Lyon gave the hosts some respite after breaking a well-settled 116-run partnership between Agarwal and Pujara, dismissing the former on his individual score of 77 runs.
While trying to clear the fence, Agarwal miscued a delivery by Lyon and was easily caught by Mitchel Starc at the long-on boundary. The opener’s knock came off 112 deliveries, decorated with seven boundaries and couple of sixes.
