Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, and Mitchell Starc on Tuesday released a statement, clarifying that they had no knowledge that a foreign substance was being applied on the ball.

A win will see the 'injury-ravaged' Indians register back-to-back series wins on Australian soil and a draw will see them retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against all odds.

Paine and Cummins were dismissed by Shardul Thakur, while Green was sent back to the pavilion by Washington Sundar. Nathan Lyon and Mitchell Starc then added runs at a brisk pace for the hosts and they went on to stitch a partnership of 39 runs.

Rahane and Jadeja are currently unbeaten on 104 and 40 respectively for India in the first innings and they will resume the proceedings for the visitors on day three of the second Test.

Kohli-led India had bundled Australia out on 191 in the first innings of the first Test after Umesh Yadav, Ashwin, and Jasprit Bumrah's heroics with the ball.

Starc and Pat Cummins provided the early breakthroughs of Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal as India was put on the back foot in the first session of the pink-ball Test against Australia here at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday.

The visitors opted for three seamers and one spinner in the first Test. Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami, and Umesh Yadav are the three pacers while Ravichandran Ashwin has been chosen as the lone spinner.

England secured a six-wicket win in the second T20I against Australia and with that, the hosts have sealed the three-match series.

Put in to bat first, Australia lost its first wicket in the third over as Mohammed Shami had David Warner (3) caught at the hands of the wicket-keeper KL Rahul.

Pakistan went from 75/0 to 78/4 in a span of just 39 balls. Masood (27) was sent back by Pat Cummins while Ali (39) and Babar Azam (1) were dismissed by Josh Hazelwood.
