India vs Australia A 2nd Practice Match Day 1 Highlights: A ruthless Indian seam attack by Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami rattled the Australia A side on day one of the three-day tour game in Sydney where the visitors won the toss and elected to bat first.

Squads:

India: Ajinkya Rahane (C), Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Shubman Gill, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant, Wriddhiman Saha, Navdeep Saini, Mohd. Shami, Mohd. Siraj, Jasprit Bumrah

Conway Run Out! AUS A all out

An eventful day comes to a close, with 20 wickets and 302 runs. Day 1: Stumps - Australia A - 108 (32.2), trail by 86 runs. The Indian seamers have been top-notch in the warmup game. Shami and Bumrah have been brilliant as usual. There is going to be selection headaches regarding the 3rd pacer slot with Saini's performance. A clear message from Indian fast bowlers to Indian batsmen that if you put decent first innings score on the board we will win you games.
