Earlier, India won the toss and decided to bat first. Mayank Agarwal and Shubman Gill gave the team a strong start. Both shared a partnership of 80 runs for the first wicket. Mayank Agarwal scored the fourth century of his Test career. He completed 100 runs in 196 balls. During this he hit 13 fours and 3 sixes. Gill got out after scoring 44 runs.
Pujara and Kohli were flop
Cheteshwar Pujara, who came out to bat for Gill, also returned to the pavilion early. He got bowled by Ejaz Patel. India took two wickets in two consecutive overs. The return of captain Virat Kohli, playing his first match after the World T20, was disappointing. A controversial decision ended his innings. Ejaz Patel dismissed him lbw. The ball hit the pad with the thick edge of the bat, it was clearly visible in replays too, but the third umpire considered it necessary to go with a soft dismissal due to lack of sufficient evidence.
Shreyas Iyer, who played a century in the first innings of the Kanpur Test and a half-century in the second innings, was dismissed for 18 runs in the first innings of the Mumbai Test. He was made his fourth victim by Ejaz Patel. After Shreyas Iyer, Wriddhiman Saha came out to bat at number five. He shared an unbeaten partnership of 61 runs with Mayank Agarwal for the fifth wicket. Saha has hit 3 fours and 1 six.
