Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith helped Australia recover from a precarious 2/2 as the duo forged a 74-run stand in the opening session of the opening day of the first Test match between India and Australia. On a pitch that was said to be a turner, India’s fast bowlers brought their A game initially as they reduced the visitors to 2/2 at the VCA Stadium in Jamtha, Nagpur. Earlier Australia had won the toss and opted to bat first and the decision seemed to have backfired when Mohammed Siraj trapped Usman Khawaja plumb in front off his very first delivery.
