Even as Josh Hazlewood nipped Rahul, Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins got rid of Vijay and Kohli respectively.

"... they're (India) up against a really talented young Australian cricket team who have got plenty to prove", he said.

The team's vice-captain was tapped on the shoulder on Wednesday and will make way for Victoria's Peter Handscomb who last played for Australia during the tour of South Africa.

"We play Test cricket to win, there is no doubt about that and clearly we have realised that we needed to do some work in some areas for gaining the respect of our country".

Vijay's dismissal brought in Kohli.

"People always say that I have scored more runs in India but, at the same time, you also need to look at the number of matches you play in India", he said.

In their first home Test since the ball-tampering scandal in March, Australia took four wickets before lunch with the batsmen guilty of playing at deliveries they would have been better off leaving alone.

Cummins ran, gathered and dived before hurling the ball side-armed from the most hard of angles to end Pujara's excellent ton and the day's play. "It was a good little effort from him".

After winning the toss and electing to bat on Thursday, the tourists endured a nightmare start, including the loss of talismanic skipper Virat Kohli, which left them 4-56 at lunch. Cummins got the Indian captain in his first over with much credit to Usman Khawaja's stunning one-handed grab at gully. "He's on fire", Starc said. "He has made a huge effort over the past nine months or so and it is showing in his batting and now in his fielding". A great catch and probably one he'll keep bringing up now as well, so a great effort from him.

"It's not an easy wicket to bat on", he said.

Starc also spoke about his change in action that helped him generate movement with the Kookaburra ball early on that troubled the Indian top order. Australia would be hoping to not lose any wicket or too many of them. "I knew I had to stay patient and wait for the loose balls". He then followed it up with a lofted front foot drive over deep cover for a yet another six and it looked like India were slowly getting back on track.

"And as I said, I had a pretty decent time to prepare before this Test series".

"Between the batters and bowlers our preparation's been fantastic, so it's one good day out of a long series". The odd ball is skidding on and the odd ball is holding a bit more from the grass.
