India were 195 for 5 after 40 overs in the first ODI of the three-match series at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Rishabh Pant (14*) and Ravindra Jadeja (22*) were batting at the crease.
Earlier, Rohit Sharma became the victim of Mitchell Starc on his individual score of 10 runs off 15 balls. Then KL Rahul fell to Aston Agar after a well-made 47 off 61 balls. Soon, Shikhar Dhawan too joined Rahul after departing on the ball of Pat Cummins. The southpaw scored 74 runs off 91 balls. His knock was laced with 9 fours and a six.
Before skipper Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer could have stitched a partnership, Azam Zampa dismissed Kohli and Starc took the wicket of Iyer.
