Adelaide, Dec 13 :
India suffered a dramatic batting collapse, losing eight wickets in the final session and were bowled out for 315 runs, to lose the first Test against Australia by 48 runs on the fifth and final day at the Adelaide Oval here Saturday.
Skipper Virat Kohli (141) scored his second century of the match, again leading the visitors’ batting charge. He was given able support by opener Murali Vijay (99). But their good work wasn’t complemented by the rest of the team as they succumbed to the guile of off-spinner Nathan Lyon who took seven wickets for 152 runs.
Australia had earlier declared their second innings at 290 for five. (IANS)
