Smith, Maxwell leads Aus charge
Steve Smith (117*) and Glenn Maxwell (82*) led Australia’s charge as the visitors ended Day 1 of the third Test at 299 for 4 against India in Ranchi on Thursday.
Maxwell, who was brought into the team after Australia lost Mitchell Marsh to injury, notched up his first Test fifty and Smith went onto score his 19th Test ton as Australia denied India a chance to run through their batting line-up after being reduced to 140/4.
Umesh Yadav was the most successful for India on Day 1 as he scalped two wickets (2/63) while R Ashwin (1/78) and Ravindra Jadeja (1/80) got a wicket each.
