In the warm-up match, India started well with the ball as Ravichandran Ashwin picked up two wickets on consecutive deliveries in the second over of the match.
Ashwin first trapped David Warner right in front of the stumps to send back the Australian opener for one and on the very next delivery he sent back Mitchell Marsh for a golden duck.
Ravindra Jadeja replaced Ashwin into the attack, and he too struck early by sending back Aaron Finch for eight.
In this match, Rohit Sharma is leading the side even though Virat Kohli is out on the field and he even rolled his arm over for an over.
With Hardik Pandya still not bowling, India are trying to figure out who their sixth bowling option could be during the T20 World Cup.
