Warner and Cowan walked to the middle for the earlier 9am start time, and swiftly found the pitch to be mild-mannered. Warner punched a pair of boundaries from the opening over, and regular runs were collected against a new ball that did not swing, seam or bounce to any uncomfortable degree.
The most nervous moment of the morning arrived when Warner chopped Bhuvneshwar Kumar past leg stump and to the fine leg rope, though he also mistimed a drive at Ishant Sharma that lobbed narrowly out of the tall fast man's reach and scooted to the straight boundary.
Ashwin's first over betrayed the fact that there was nothing too treacherous about the spin on offer, though Warner contrived to play and miss at three deliveries and snick another past gully. Shortly before lunch a Cowan cut, then a Warner drive, both flashed past slip, but Virat Kohli's surprised reactions reflected how safely Australia's openers had played.
They ambled on into the afternoon, playing conservatively but ticking the runs over sensibly enough, until Jadeja's move around the wicket brought a misjudgement of flight by Warner and a bat-pad catch for MS Dhoni. Clarke had conveyed his intention to take greater responsibility for guiding the innings following the Hyderabad debacle, and so walked in at the fall of the first wicket.
His body language was alert and positive, but his footwork and reading of length were found immediately wanting by Jadeja, who coaxed a dance down the pitch that resulted in a stumping for a delighted Dhoni. Hughes then scratched and scraped as though filled with dread, in an innings that only took place because Usman Khawaja had been deemed ineligible.
Hughes' exit, tentatively fiddling at a leg-side delivery from Ojha, was as unsurprising as it was dispiriting. The contrast with Smith, playing his first Test since the final match of the 2010-11 Ashes, was acute. He did not meet every ball with the middle of the bat, but showed the right combination of aggression and resolve.
At the other end Cowan fought bravely, not always looking secure but challenging India's bowlers to find something extra to dismiss him. It was the sort of dogged innings played all too rarely by Australia over the first two Tests.
