New Delhi:

Australia were 256 for nine at stumps on day one of the first Test against India in Pune on Thursday. Earlier Australia were 153 for four at tea on the opening day of the first cricket test against India at MCA stadium.

India are at the forefront of a revolution to give the spectator a little more than he's paid for. Just when the flurry of wickets had threatened to derail Australia, Starc's late dash has lifted them to a position of respectability on a tricky pitch here in Pune. 256/9 is not a bad effort at all, considering how much the ball has turned. Some really handy blows from the tall left-hander enroute a fifty in a vital last wicket-partnership in which Hazlewood scored just 1.
