Welcome to Inuth’s coverage of India A vs Australia three-day warm-up game at Mumbai. On Day One, Australian batsmen piled on runs when they were surprisingly asked to bat by India A’s captain Hardik Pandya after winning the toss. Aussie skipper Steven Smith was taken aback by Pandya’s decision to let the visitors bat on Day One.

On Day 2, the first session will be crucial as the ball is still new and early on the day they will get some movement off the pitch. All-rounder Mitchell Marsh and wicketkeeper-batsman Mathew Wade survived the new ball on Day 1. They will have the same task in the first session too until the ball has lost a bit of it’s shine.

Smith and Shaun Marsh saved their team from danger after two wickets fell down early in the first session. Both the batsmen scored centuries and the retired to give other batsmen a chance to get accustomed to the pitch conditions.

In the last session, Pandya bowled a splendid spell as he got the wicket of Peter Handscomb who fell short of 5 runs from his half-century.

Earlier, youngster Navdeep Amarjeet Saini impressed many with his skills. Saini picked up the wicket of Australia’s fiery opener David Warner and that too of a bouncer. The ball took a top edge and went into the hands of wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan. He came up with a plan to get rid of opener Matthew Henshaw as well. He came round the wicket to the left-hander and succeeded in getting an edge post his bat, into the hands of Kishan.

He bowled four maiden overs on Day 1, creating pressure on the Australian batsmen. Fast bowler Ashoke Dinda did not impress with the ball as he did not get any wickets and kept on bowling no-balls throughout his spell. There were a total of 6 no-balls recorded on Day 1.

The star bowler of Day 1 expressed his feeling after getting the wicket of Warner.

Brief Scores: (Day 1)

Australia 323 for 3 (Steven Smith 107, Shaun Marsh 104; Navdeep Amarjeet Saini 2 for 27, Hardik Pandya 1 for 64) lead India A by 323 runs.
