India won the toss and opted to bat. The visitors lost opener Mayank Agarwal early but Shubman Gill and Prithvi Shaw counter-attacked.
India's middle order troubles continued and they found themselves struggling at 113/8. From here on Jasprit Bumrah played a splendid hand of 55 off 57 balls and remained unbeaten.
Aussie pacer Cameron Green was hit on the head. Such was the ferociousness of the blow that non-striker Mohammad Siraj rushed towards him fearing the worst. Green was later ruled out of further participation in the game.
Bumrah came back and removed Australia A opener Josh Burns for a duck.
Aus 'A' kept on losing timely wickets. Mohammad Shami and fellow pacer Navdeep Saini grabbed three wickets apiece.
