India vs Australia 3rd Test, Day 1

First Day's Summary

After the Indian bowlers pegged back Australia top order with regular strikes before lunch, skipper Steven Smith combined brilliantly with Glen Maxwell to help the visitors post a respectable 299 for 4 at stumps. The Australian captain brought up his 19th Test century with Glen Maxwell registering his maiden Test half-century. R Ashwin and Jadeja once again created trouble for the Aussies batsmen by choking the runs post lunch and scalping the wickets of Shaun Marsh and David Warner. Umesh Yadav was impressive up front as he picked up in-form opener Matt Renshaw upfront and then scalped middle order Peter Handscomb.It surely is advantage Australia on Day 1 as the skipper and Maxwell look well settled on the crease. The Indians would like to pick up Smith early tomorrow to make inroads into the Australian batting and make a way back in the match
