India go one up in Chennai



India won the first test against Australia by eight wickets on the final morning in Chennai on Tuesday.

Full Scorecard: India v Australia

India took 11.3 overs and lost both openers before Cheteshwar Pujara (eight) and Sachin Tendulkar (13) reached the target to give the hosts a lead in the four-match series.

Earlier, Australia were dismissed for 241, setting the hosts a target of 50 runs.

The visitors added nine runs to their overnight score, and it fell to part-timer, Ravindra Jadeja, to pick up the wicket of Nathan Lyon (11) to end their resistance.

Lyon withstood the attack for 77 deliveries to support Moises Henriques to the three-figure mark, but the debutant was left stranded on 81.

He faced 148 balls and hit six fours and two sixes.

Ravichandran Ashwin finished with 5-95 and Jadeda took three wickets for 72.
