1.1

Yadav to Warner, 3 runs, full and straight at brisk pace. A hint of swing into the batsman. Warner stays on his crease and muscles the ball along the ground past the bowler, Ishant lumbers after it

1.2

Yadav to Cowan, FOUR, a nice, friendly full toss outside off stump. Cowan stays in his crease and simply angles his bat, allowing the ball to bounce off it into the gap at cover. First runs for Cowan, first boundary of the Test

1.3

1.4

Yadav to Warner, no run, 144 kph, Warner gives the length ball a thump but can't beat mid-off

1.5

Yadav to Warner, 4 runs, they've run four! Warner didn't go along the ground this time, he went over mid-off, lofting a fuller ball. Ashwin perhaps assumed the ball would go for four because he didn't chase it fervently. The ball stopped a foot inside the rope. The straight boundaries at the Adelaide Oval are huge.
