Jayant Yadav's no-ball costs India David Warner's wicket, makes Virat Kohli angry

However, a change in the bowling attack by skipper Virat Kohli did the trick as Umesh Yadav dismissed a well-settled Warner (38) in the 27th over.

It was the 28th over of the morning and 100 minutes had passed before Umesh got his first opportunity to join the fray but he needed just two deliveries to break the opening stand.

The first session of the 4-match series was won by Australia, but not before some testing times.


Warner and his opening partner later went on to put Australia in a commanding position ahead of lunch, posting an 82-run partnership. And then, as Steve Smith walked out to the middle, Renshaw jogged past him clutching his stomach. It was against the run of play when Australia lost the wicket of Shaun in the 47th over. Renshaw had batted brilliantly up until that point, using his feet smartly against the spin of Ashwin, Jayant and Ravindra Jadeja. He has Mitchel Marsh (2) for company at the crease as the visitors enter a crucial final session, in which they must preserve wickets if they are to remain in the Test.

Australian captain Steve Smith won the toss and chose to bat on the first day of the first Test against India at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.

The left-handed batsman was bowled around his legs by Jayant Yadav.


The Indians also wasted their first DRS call in the 10th over of the match after their appeal for a catch behind against the tall Renshaw was rejected by the umpire.

Australia: David Warner, Matt Renshaw, Steven Smith (captain), Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Mitchell Marsh, Matthew Wade, Mitchell Starc, Steve O'Keefe, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood.

The 20-year-old had impressed in four Tests in the Australian summer and was playing his first Test outside his country.
