India's four-pronged pace attack did well to intimidate Australian youngsters with short-pitched stuff as Mohammed Shami and Navdeep Saini got three wickets apiece. On a day when the recognised batsmen struggled to put runs on the board, Bumrah, who came into the game with a Test batting average of 2.9, produced a stellar performance with the willow, smashing the ball six times to the fence and twice over it.The 27-year-old, known for his wily bowling, reached his half-century in style, hooking a bouncer by all-rounder Will Sutherland for a huge six over the deep square-leg fence. Bumrah and fellow pacer Mohammed Siraj stitched a valuable 71-run partnership for the 10th wicket before the Indian innings ended with a semblance of respectively.

Pleasant surprised with his batting heroics, Bumrah's teammates got up, clapped and gave him a guard of honour as he walked into the dressing room. Earlier, after skipper Ajinkya Rahane opted to bat, Prithvi Shaw (40) and Shubman Gill (43) -- both 21-year-old batsmen with bright future -- showed enough glimpses of why they are rated so highly by almost everyone in the Indian cricket fraternity.However, the rest of the teammates including the seasoned Rahane, failed to impress on the first day of their final tune-up before the start of the four-match Test series beginning December 17. The two specialist wicketkeepers Wriddhiman Saha (0) and Rishabh Pant (5) both fell cheaply with the former failing to open his account after the likes of Mayank Agarwal and Hanuma Vihari were also dismissed cheaply.

But the most distraught will be the duo of Shaw and Gill, both getting out after promising so much with their dazzling strokes and positive approach. The Australians may have bowled out India for a low score but they wouldn't be too happy with the way their batting panned out during the day's play.While Joe Burns was sent back by a fine Bumrah delivery that moved away just enough to take the beleaguered opener's edge, what will worry them most is the injury to Test hopeful Cameron Green. All-rounder Green, who had scored a hundred in the first warm-up game, suffered a concussion while bowling after a rasping straight drive from Bumrah struck him on the head.

Bowling his second spell of the day, the 21-year-old was unable to react in time when Bumrah's full-blooded drive slipped through his palms and struck on the right side of the head. The all-rounder immediately went down and non-striker Mohammed Siraj rushed to check on him.After being examined for a couple of minutes by the medical team, the all-rounder was back on his feet as he walked off the field for further assessment. Batsman Patrick Rowe was named his concussion substitute. Bumrah (2/33) and Shami (3/29) bowled a terrific opening spell and beat the outside edge of Marcus Harris and Nic Maddinson a number of times before rain intervened.

On resumption, Harris hit a boundary straightaway after he found the gap between cover and point. Shami was rewarded for his perseverance as he picked up the wickets of Harris and Ben McDermott, a hint swing and seam movement aiding him.Siraj (1/26) then had Maddinson to leave the home team reeling at 52 for four. Shami made it 56 for five when he had Sean Abbott caught behind. Jack Wildermuth went for a cut against Bumrah but ended up getting an outside before Navdeep Saini (3/19) sent back Will Sutherland, Alex Carey and Mitchel Swepson, coming in as second change.
