Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell power Australia to 299 at Stumps on Day 1 of the third Test in Ranchi. Ranchi made its Test debut, as it became India's 26th Test venure for India. After winning the toss, Steve Smith opted to bat first. David Warner and Matt Renshaw provided a strong start before spinner Ravindra Jadeja got a better of Warner. It was walk in park for the Indian bowlers as they reduced the visitors to 140/4 before Smith and Maxwell steadied Australian innings. While, the hosts were dealt a injury scare when Virat Kohli walked off the field after injuring his right shoulder in the post-lunch session.
