The day started with Warner and Harris scoring briskly with the help of a few streaky boundaries early on. They put a lot of pressure on the Indians in the first hour. The duo took the lead to over 100. However, both departed in consecutive overs as India tried to make a comeback. However, Labuschagne and Smith counter-attacked as they added 32 in just 27 balls. However, Labuschagne got out and Wade followed him back to the pavilion without opening his account as India forced them on the back foot. After that Smith, along with Green negotiated the remaining over to remain unscathed till the Lunch break.
