India’s star batsman Virat Kohli was seen having fun with head coach Rahul Dravid on the first day of the ongoing third Test against Australia. Kohli, who top-scored for India in his innings of 22, looked positive in his knock but was undone by a Todd Murphy delivery, which stayed low and hit his pads. After his dismissal, Kohli was seen talking to Dravid, who couldn’t stop laughing at the former Indian skipper’s antics. Interesting conversation was caught on camera on the first day.

India’s batsmen had a disappointing first innings as Australian spinner Matthew Kuhnmann created a ruckus at the Holkar Stadium after the hosts opted to bat.
Kuhnman took his first five wickets and Nathan Lyon took three wickets to bundle out India for 109 on the first day.
Australia attempted to fight back in the four-match series from two heavy losses, introducing spin in the sixth over after India won the toss and elected to bat.
Earlier, India made two changes to the team that won in Delhi, bringing in Gill for Rahul and fast bowler Yadav in place of Mohammed Shami.
Australia also made two changes under Smith in the absence of Pat Cummins.
Starc replaced Cummins while Cameron Green came in for David Warner, who was ruled out of the remaining two matches after suffering an elbow fracture and injury in the second Test in Delhi.
