05:20 IST: Hello and welcome to the live blog of day 3 of the first Test between India and Australia.

All of Australia’s top four were back in the pavilion without passing 30, with Aaron Finch (0) and Shaun Marsh (two) notable failures. It once again reinforced how much Australia are missing Steve Smith and David Warner, who remain banned over their part in the South Africa ball-tampering affair. Hazlewood finished with 3-52. Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon all took two wickets each. In reply, Australia got off to a horror start with Finch’s credentials as an opener again called into question after he was spectacularly bowled without scoring on only the third ball he faced.

A lovely delivery from Ishant took out his middle and off stumps after getting an inside edge as Finch attempted a drive. Debutant Marcus Harris looked in good nick and unruffled by the occasion, hitting three fours in a solid 26. But he was undone by a drifting ball from Ashwin, getting an edge to Murali Vijay at silly mid-off and ending a 45-run partnership with a slimmed-down Usman Khawaja who was back after knee surgery. Ashwin’s off-spin was causing problems and Marsh needlessly slashed at a wide delivery in the first over after lunch, dragging it onto his wicket for two. The woeful shot extended his dire recent Test form and left Australia in trouble at 59-3.

Marsh has now slumped to six consecutive single-figure scores, failing to step up in the absence of Smith and Warner. Khawaja, whose Test preparations were disrupted after the shock arrest of his brother this week for allegedly framing a love-rival with a fake terror plot, was Ashwin’s next victim. Wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant took an excellent catch after a turning ball flicked off Khawaja’s glove. He was out for 28 on a review decision.
