On the fifth day, Australia stretched India all the way but couldn’t get past the 323 run target which would have been the first successful chase at the venue since 1902.

Australia were bundled out for 291 in an extended post-lunch session to go 0-1 down in the series. This is the first time India have won an opening Test in Australia and just their sixth overall.

Rishabh Pant finished the Test with 11 catches between his gloves to go past M.S. Dhoni (9) and then Wriddhiman Saha who had taken 10 earlier in the year against South Africa.

The second Test begins on Dec.14 at the new stadium in Perth. It will be followed by the third Test on Boxing Day in Melbourne and the series will end with the fourth Test in Sydney starting January 3, 2019.
