The record-highest partnership of the four match test series between Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara came after an impressive show by debutant Mayank Agarwal. Agarwal scored 76 runs off 161 balls and gave India a confident start with all-rounder Hanuma Vihari. Even though, Vihari managed to make just eight runs, he looked fearless while facing the daunting Australian pace attack with the new cherry.

The new opening pair of Mayank Agarwal and Hanuma Vihari established a 40-run opening-wicket partnership stand. For Australia, Pat Cummins was the only successful bowler with two crucial scalps in Vihari and Agarwal. The four-match Test series is currently tied at 1-1. After suffering a 146-run defeat in the second Test in Perth, India after a week’s break have managed to put their best foot forward. For the Boxing Day Test, India dropped openers KL Rahul and Murali Vijay to give youngsters Vihari and Agarwal a chance to open the innings. While there was a temptation to play all-rounder Hardik Pandya, a fit-again Rohit Sharma will give the cushion of an extra batsman. Indian team management in a departure from its convention, announced their playing XI, a day prior to the match ending speculations about the possible team combination.
