How did the session pan out?
Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins dismantled India's lower-order, ending the innings on 244.
Both the seamers picked up two scalps apiece.
Meanwhile, the Australian openers were quite vigilant in the first 10.

Bumrah ran through Australia's top-order
Indian premier fast bowler, Bumrah, jeopardized the Australian batsmen in the first session.
The Aussie openers had no clue in front of Bumrah's immaculate line and length.
The deadlock was finally broken in the 15th over when he trapped Matthew Wade (8) in front.
In his very next over, he dismissed Joe Burns, who also departed on 8.
India were bundled out for 244
Earlier in the day, the Indian innings ended on 244 as the visitors mustered only 11 more runs.
Starting from their overnight score of 233/6, India lost wickets in quick succession early on Day 2.
Notably, Team India's batting collapsed on the first day after skipper Virat Kohli got run-out.
