Smith did not come to bat after tea break. Marsh too got retired after scoring his century. Peter Handscomb came into bat, he looked promising in the third session as well. The game tilted slightly towards India A when skipper Pandya decided to opt for the new ball. He took the new ball in 81st over only. Ashoke Dinda bowled from the other end. He did not get any wickets but tried to build pressure on the newcomers Mitchell Marsh and Mathew Wade. Pandya got the wicket of Handscomb in the first over after taking the new ball. His second spell was a joy to watch. Saini came in to bowl the last over of the day, he got injured in the second session. He bowled a maiden over upon his return as India A take the momentum into Day 2 of the three-day warm-up game. 323 for 3 (Steven Smith 107, Shaun Marsh 104; Navdeep Amarjeet Saini 2 for 27, Hardik Pandya 1 for 64) lead by 323 runs.
