"Boyce snared his second wicket in the last over before the new ball and had Karun Nair (26) caught in the deep by a diving Chris Lynn."
Brisbane, July 6 - Play is evenly poised after Day 1 of India A's first four-day match against Australia A at the Allan Border Field with the tourists consolidating after a shaky start to reach 304/6 at stumps here Sunday.

Australia A captain James Faulkner lost the toss and the team were sent in to field by India A captain Manoj Tiwary on a good batting track.

Pacer Ben Cutting (2/65) struck within the first hour, trapping Lokesh Rahul (15) leg before.

All-rounder Mitchell Marsh (2/46) chimed in with quick two wickets in consecutive overs (Robin Uthappa 23, Ambati Rayudu 0) and India A headed into the lunch break at 76/3.

The Indian side then consolidated after lunch with a 134-run partnership between Jiwanjot Singh and Tiwary. Cutting made the breakthrough and took the only wicket for the second session -- Singh (56) -- getting him caught down leg-side by Sam Whiteman before the visitors went to tea at 187/4.

Spinner Cameron Boyce (2/84) took the first over after tea and had an immediate impact with his second ball. Tiwary went after a well-flighted delivery and missed, sharply stumped by Whiteman for a good knock of 83 from 118 balls.

Boyce snared his second wicket in the last over before the new ball and had Karun Nair (26) caught in the deep by a diving Chris Lynn.

At the close of play, the not-out batsmen were Naman Ojha (82) and Dhawal Kulkarni (12).
