The first day was also marred by controversy as Australians suffered two poor umpiring decisions in the absence of the review system which the Indian cricket board sternly opposes.
Debutant was the top scorer of the day as he got 68 from 177 balls. Ageing Rickey Ponting was the other prominent scorer with 62 runs. Warner and Clarke got out after scoring 37 and 31, respectively.
Umesh Yadav, the new pace sensation, picked up three most important wickets of Warner, Marsh and Ponting. Zaheer Khan got Clarke and Hussey.
Brad Haddin was not out on 21 and Peter Siddle on 34 when the play ended.
