Indian opening Shubman Gill danced along the track and tossed Nathan Lyons long time for a whopping six. The ball became stuck in the sight screen which forced proceedings to be halted while the referees first waited for someone to find the ball.

As the spectator’s effort to find the ball seemed to have become futile, the referees decided to bring in the new ball. But wait, the kid wasn’t in the mood to give up and he gave it another go and this time came out victorious with the ball in hand.

Skipper Rohit Sharma, on 17, and Shubman Gill, on 18, looked positive and attacked the Australian spinners, who bowled five of their 10 overs before play ended.
Earlier, opener Usman Khawaja hit a masterful 180 and Cameron Green hit a first century before Australia were bowled out for 480.
