Mumbai: Live cricket updates from Day 1 of the warm-up match between India A and Australian team being played at Brabourne Stadium. Ahead of the four-match series, it's an excellent opportunity for Australian batsman to acclimatize to the conditions.
Overs 10 | Score 38/1 | Smith 5*, Renshaw 5*
Skipper Hardik Pandya seems to be little loose on his deliveries as Warner is wacking them off for boundaries. But the Indian side finally got a break by dismissing the danger man Warner. Saini indeed had the correct recipe for the opener.
WICKET! David Warner (25) departs after giving a brilliant start to the Aussies. Score 33/1

TOSS: Hardik Pandya won the toss and invited Australia to bat first.
India A skipper Hardik Pandya earlier said the warm-up game against Australia would be a great opportunity for fringe players to impress the selectors ahead of the four-Test series.
David Warner, Steve Smith are two crucial batsmen for the visitors in the series and it's important from Australia's perspective that these two get off to a good start in the warm-up match.
