Brilliant bowling efforts from Australian spinners helped the visitors bundle out the Indian side for a just total of 109 as Matthew Kuhnemann took a sensational five-wicket haul. The youngster was well supported by Nathan Lyon who took important wickets of Cheteshwar Pujara, Ravindra Jadeja and KS Bharat.
Among Indian batters, only Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli managed to cross the 20-run mark. While fans thought that the Indian spinner might enjoy the same outing, Australian batters proved them wrong as a brilliant fifty from Usman Khawaja helped visitors to get a 47-run read at the end of Day 1.
