Mohammad Shami celebrates the wicket of Travis Head on day 3 of the first Test against Australia in Adelaide on December 8, 2018.

Australia were all out for 235, giving India a first-innings lead of 15 runs on the third day of the opening Test in Adelaide on Saturday.

India were bowled out for 250 in their first innings on the second morning at the Adelaide Oval.

The start of third day’s play was delayed by rain and there was also one interruption in between after the heavens opened up again.

Australia began the third day playing catch-up to India's 250, with Travis Head batting on 61 with the tail for company. It was a slow second day at Adelaide, and that was thanks to some disciplined Indian bowling by R. Ashwin in particular who took three wickets.

A marginal lead can yield maximum value and the rivals are locked in an engrossing tussle. The Indian bowlers were niggardly and R. Ashwin bowled a spell of 22 overs on either side of lunch.

Australia’s run-rate was pegged at a turgid 2.17 on a pitch that isn’t conducive to free-flowing batsmanship.

Day 2:  Ashwin & Co. put a spoke in the Australian wheel
