Earlier, India has won the toss and opted to bat first, but only reached 194/10 in 48.3 overs. Opener Shubman Gill scored a well-deserved (43) while another youngster Prithvi Shaw plays a quickfire 40 off 29 balls and gifted his wicket after playing a T20 mode. For Australia A, Jack Wildermuth 3/13, and Sean Abbott 3/46 was the pick of the bowlers.
