Day one review: India reached 215 for 2 at stumps on the first day after winning the toss. Mayank Agarwal set the base with a fine 76 on debut. Cheteshwar Pujara (68) and Virat Kohli (47) then added an unbroken 92 for the third wicket to put India in control.
Pat Cummins got both the wickets on what was a tough outing for the bowlers on the first day. The Australian bowlers toiled without much success on a flat pitch, but did not allow India to run away with the game.
India opened with a new pair in Hanuma Vihari and Agarwal, having dropped the out of form KL Rahul and M Vijay. Vihari managed just eight runs but batted 66 balls. Agarwal was confident in his first international game, and hit eight fours and a six. Pujara and Kohli then ground the Australian attack to given India the advantage.
