Australian top-order batsman Aaron Finch delighted all cricket enthusiasts on his return as he scored a strokeful century to help Australia cross the 200-mark in 34.2 overs of the third Test against India at the Holkar Stadium, Indore, on Sunday.

With Finch (113*) and captain Steven Smith (45*) at the helm, Australia were 206/1 in 35 overs.

Earlier, opener David Warner was dismissed for 42 runs. His 44-ball knock was a sign of improvement as he had lost his wicket for 1 and 25 runs in last two matches, respectively.

For India, Hardik Pandya earned the breakthrough, bowling Warner out in the 14th over.
