Australia was tearing through India on Day 1 of the First Test at Adelaide Oval, snaring four quick wickets.

Khawaja made a spectacular dive to take a flying one armed grab and dismiss Indian captain Virat Kohli off the bowling of pace bowler Pat Cummins in the 11th over.

Then in the 21st over Australian strike bowler Josh Hazlewood took the fourth and final wicket in the first session of play, leaving India on four wickets for 56 runs going into lunch. 

Hazlewood was bowling to Indian batsman Ajinkya Rahane and made the batsman chase an outside line, clipping the ball and sending it into straight to Peter Handscomb.  

The classic catch marked a stunning comeback for the embattled Khawaja who has had to deal with a scandal surrounding his older brother who is alleged to have framed his love rival by faking a terrorist plot.

Now, police allege Mr Nizamdeen was set up by Mr Khawaja.

They allege Mr Khawaja forged the 'terror hit list' and planted it on Mr Nizamdeen after a dispute over a girl.
