The World Test Championship final between Australia and Team India is on the back foot. Steve Smith and Travis Head put Australia in cruise control by the end of day one. Travis Head, who had earlier put the Aussies in trouble – losing their first three wickets in just 76 runs – produced a counterattacking knock and took the Indian pacers to task with a series of boundaries in his early innings.
Steve Smith is only five deliveries away from his 100th century. Head ended the day with an unbeaten score of 146. Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami each took a wicket for India. However, they were unable to stop the Aussies’ comeback in the second session. India will hope for an early breakthrough as the match enters its second day.

Australia Vs India Pitch Report
It is a lovely day with light winds, and the temperature is warm for English standards. Yesterday, the sky was cloudy but today it is sunny. Yesterday’s pitch was a bit rough in the first game with some sideways movement.
This is the way an oval pitch is usually laid out. The ball bounces unevenly when it hits the bare patches. The pitch is dry under the grass but taller Australian players will degrade the pitch quite a lot. Nasser Hussain, and Kumar Sangakkara both predict that the ball will be spinning on day 3 or 4.
