Aussies left to rue DRS misfortune on day three

Aussies left to rue DRS misfortune on day three India is in a strong position to take out the first Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after a dominant day three batting performance gave them a solid platform.

Stroke play, also known as medal play, is a scoring system in the sport of golf in which the total number of strokes is counted over one , or more rounds, of 18 holes; as opposed to match play, in which the player, or team, earns a point for each hole in which they have bested their opponents.

A 20-year-old South African batsman Shane Dadswell on Saturday scored a record 490 runs for his club NWU Pukke against Potch Dorp 1 st in a 50- over game. Expectedly, Pukke batsmen added huge stands during the innings -- 194, 204 and 220 for the first three wickets.

The Indian batting lineup has been slammed for their lack of application on the first day, with expansive strokeplay proving to be the downfall in the first five wickets.

Pant was early into his innings, but that did not dissuade him from attempting a wild slog sweep off Pat Cummins with India teetering at 5-110.

"That was going to the Northern Territory border," O'Keefe exclaimed.

"Village cricketers would be ashamed of that!

"At 5-110, that's not my shot of choice, I've got to say."

Pant eventually reached 25 before being found caught behind off Nathan Lyon, but his shot symbolised the Indian batting effort on a day one Adelaide Oval wicket that had something in it for the bowlers.

Rahul was first to go with a loose drive attempt off Josh Hazlewood finding Aaron Finch in just the second over of the day, before Vijay and Rahane were also dismissed in similar fashion.

Kohli might count himself slightly unlucky given Usman Khawaja's terrific catch, but he too opened up the possibility for the catch to even take place by flashing his blade at a wide delivery.

However, the loose strokeplay wasn't exclusively off Australia's pace attack, with Sharma's attempted hoick off Nathan Lyon perhaps the ugliest dismissal of the day.

The 31-year-old appeared to be well-set on 37 before attempting a wide slog across the line, which was easily caught in the deep by Marcus Harris.
