First Test, day two highlights, results, latest updates, Todd Murphy dismisses Virat Kohli, five-for on debut, Matt Renshaw injury, Ravindra Jadeja incident, Pat Cummins under pressure

Can you believe it? Todd Muprhy strikes with his first ball after lunch.

The ball was going down leg and Virat Kohli chased it, gets a feather on it, and Alex Carey takes the catch – albeit with a bit of a fumble.

That’s Murphy’s fourth wicket and Kohli departs for just 12 runs.

“There are many ways for a batsman to get out and this one must be one of the worst ways to get out,” says Dinesh Karthik.

“Strangled down the leg side, instinctively playing a flick shot, which was what was meant to be played, but Virat Kohli’s bad luck today, has to nick that one.”

India are 4/151 after that, which brings Suryakumar Yadav to the crease.

Murphy’s incredible debut continues. He’s carrying this team’s efforts with the ball and he’s grinning like a Cheshire cat.

“If Australia wanted to script something, they couldn’t have scripted it any better than what just happened in the first ball,” Karthik continues.

“Get the debutant in as early as possible and in walks Suryakumar Yadav.”
