Bengaluru: While KL Rahul continues to play aggressive cricket, Australia, in the first session on Day 1 of the second Test, have made sure that they approach the lunch interval on a bright note after sending two India batsmen back in the dressing room here on Saturday.

Mitchell Starc struck in his second over as he trapped Abhinav Mukund for zero. The yorker length ball got the better off the Tamil Nadu batsman, who was making a comeback to the national side after five and half years.

Although Pujara managed to stitch 61-run partnership with Rahul, Nathan Lyon dismissed him in the final over before lunch.

India skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat against Australia in the second cricket Test at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium here on Saturday.

Australia have named an unchanged XI, while India have brought in Abhinav Mukund and Karun Nair.

Abhinav makes a comeback to the Test side after five-and-a-half years, replacing Murali Vijay, who has suffered a shoulder injury.

Nair, who scored a triple century in his last Test, also gets a chance after India decided to drop Jayant Yadav for an extra batsman.

Teams:

India: Abhinav Mukund, Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (captain), Ajinkya Rahane, Karun Nair, Wriddhiman Saha (wicketkeeper), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma.

Australia: David Warner, Mark Renshaw, Steve Smith (captain), Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Mitchell Marsh, Matthew Wade (wicketkeeper), Steve O'Keefe, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Starc, Jose Hazlewood.
