Steve Smith was the pick of the batsmen for Australia as he batted extremely well against the Indian bowling attack. The right-handed batsman scored a brilliant 131 with the help of 16 fours. While he was en route to scoring 150, he was run out by Ravindra Jadeja’s bulls eye throw.

Smith’s partner Marnus Labuschagne also played quite well but he missed out on a well-deserved century by 9 runs. Jadeja provided a great breakthrough by dismissing the set batsman. Labuschagne got out soon after adding a 100-run stand with Smith.

After both the set batsmen got out, the hosts lacked stability in the batting. They kept on losing wickets at regular intervals and after which they were bowled out for 338. Jadeja was the pick of the bowlers for India as he accounted for 4 dismissals.

The likes of Navdeep Saini and Jasprit Bumrah picked up 2 wickets each. Siraj took a wicket to his name. In reply to Australia’s total, India have gone past the 60-run mark with the help of Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma. The duo added a fifty run-stand, which is India’s 50-run opening stand for the first time in 14 innings.
