That's all we have from the first match of this test series between India and Australia. Harmanpreet Singh and co were level on terms with their opponents for most part, but they have once again faltered in the final minutes to surrender.
Akashdeep Singh was the star for India with a hat-trick, but there is a lot to ponder about for Graham Reid's men with 4 matches left.

Jarmanpreet comes in and creates an impact immediately. He passes it to Harmanpreet, who in turn finds Akashdeep who is completely open. The Australian goalkeeper is down chasing the ball, and Akashdeep crosses.
There is no Indian to deflect it in, but it doesn't matter as Australia slot it in themselves. OWN GOAL!
IND 4-4 AUS
