Mohammed Siraj and Shardul Thakur give India an edge
Now coming to the game, Rohit Sharma decided to bow first after he won the toss. The decision was backed well by Mohammed Siraj who struck early and sent back Usman Khawaja in his second over. Siraj got Khawaja caught behind the wicket. However, Marnus Labuschagne and David Warner formed a half-century stand (69-run) to bail the team out of trouble. While Labuschagne was cautious and looked troubled by the odd deliveries which bounced off the deck, Warner was flawless during his stay.
However, the Australia opener lost focus for a while and was strangled down the leg side by Shardul Thakur. Warner perished while trying to pull a short ball from Thakur. Nevertheless, Australia avoided any further casualty as they went back for lunch with the scorecard reading 73/2.
