Beginning the proceedings for Australia, Warner and Renshaw never looked confident against Umesh Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Captain Smith who walked in at number three looked confident when he started to smash the bowlers around the park but in the ninth over of the innings, he was undone by Bhuvi. After being smacked for two consecutive boundaries, the UP bowler pulled the length and bowled a short-delivery to Smith. The Australian captain went wrong with his anticipation and tried to pull it away.
