But somehow India could not minimize the damage in 1 st hour although they have got so many experienced batsmen at the dug out and was in a very bad situaton at 41 runs for 4 wickets.
After that Rohit Sharma looked like the star India was looking for a while before he gifted his wicket when the score board was 86.
After that Pant came and played in the way he knows and dragged india over 125 when he went back at 126.
At tea India are 143 for 6 with wall of India's current batting line up Pujara on 46 not out and Ashwin on 5 not out.
All the australian bowlers bowled pretty well and all managed to get wickets except part time bowler Head.
Post tea session will be very crucial for the decision of the match as there are no any mysteries in the pitch and this seems like a flat pitch after 1 st hour of the game.
It will be crucial for India not to get bowled out before stumps of Day 1 if they want to stay alive in the contest.
Minimum from here that India should get is 250 as we reckon and getting there should be important for India surely to stay alive,
Anything less than 200 for australia will give them a 80% chance to win the match as we reckon.
