Mohammed Siraj, who made his debut on Saturday, picked up his first Test wicket as Marnus Labuschagne was caught at backward square-leg by one other debutant Shubman Gill. Labuschagne was wanting good for a giant rating however he didn’t maintain a flick shot on the bottom and Gill pulled off a positive diving catch. Cricket Australia took to Twitter to put up a video of Siraj’s maiden Test wicket. India managed to select two wickets within the post-lunch session to reduce Australia to 136 for 5.

In the second session, Jasprit Bumrah eliminated Travis Head for 38. India captain Ajinkya Rahane, stationed at gully, took a low catch to ship him again to the pavilion.
Labuschagne and Cameron Green then tried to regular the innings however Siraj broke the partnership.
Earlier within the day, Australia received off to a poor begin after successful the toss and opting to bat on the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Bumrah eliminated Joe Burns for a duck after which Ravichandran Ashwin, in his second over of the match, ended Matthew Wade’s innings for 30.
Wade mistimed a lofted shot and was caught by Ravindra Jadeja, who held onto the catch regardless of a minor collision with Gill.
Ashwin once more struck in his subsequent over and bagged the large wicket of Steve Smith for a duck. The primary ranked Test batsman flicked a ball off his pads straight into the palms of Cheteshwar Pujara at leg slip.
Tim Paine and Cameron Green had been unbeaten at Tea on Day 1.
