Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav took two wickets each while Kedar Jadhav chipped in with one. India lost Shikhar Dhawan early but Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli steadied the boat for them with a 76-run stand but the hosts were thrown into a precarious position once again when the pair and Ambati Rayudu were dismissed in quick succession.

India lost opener Shikhar Dhawan for a golden duck in the second over of their innings, but Kohli and Rohit Sharma played with characteristic ease before Australia prized out three wickets to roar back into the match. Kohli, who added 76 runs with Rohit, raced to a run-a-ball 44 before being foxed by an Adam Zampa delivery that beat his bat and rapped him on the pad. (PTI Photo)

Rohit's departure for 37 compounded India's problems but Dhoni and Jadhav batted sensibly and did not panic even when the asking run rate climbed above six an over. (PTI Photo)
