On a Feroz Shah Kotla track that had plenty of cracks even before the game began, there was variable bounce and movement for the quicks, and the ball was starting to grip for the spinners, with TV commentators even wondering whether this match was being played at Headingley. That may seem a tailor-made surface for bowling first, but Australia's stand-in captain Shane Watson, taking over from an injured Michael Clarke, decided to bat wagering that the track will become even more difficult to score on as the match progresses.
The bulk of the runs in the morning session came from Phillip Hughes, who less than a week ago was set to go down as the benchmark for bumbling batting after a torturous time against India's spinners. Some of his confidence came back with a battling 69 in Mohali, and he was refreshingly positive on the difficult pitch. He was helped by some wayward bowling from the quicks early on, thumping three fours in a Bhuvneshwar Kumar over.
Everyone was waiting for the first spinner to come on, both to see how much the ball would rip and to see how Hughes would cope. Ashwin, India's most successful bowler in the series, came on in the ninth over and Hughes promptly struck him for two boundaries through midwicket to gallop to 29 off 23 deliveries.
