Australia Women vs India Women Pink Ball Test Day 1 Live: Mandhana scores 50, India off to solid start

Australia Women vs India Women Pink Ball Test Day 1: Live Updates from Gold Coast

AUS W vs IND W: Welcome to our live coverage of historic Pink Ball Test between Australia Women and India Women from Metricon Stadium in Gold Coast. 

India were comfortably placed at 132 for one when rain brought an early end to the opening day's play in the pink-ball Test against Australia on Thursday. Smriti Mandhana was batting on a sublime 80 and Punam Raut was unbeaten on 16 when stumps were called on the first day.

India were 101 for 1 at the dinner break on the opening day of their one-off Day/Night Test, after which lightning delayed the start of play for a while.

FOLLOW LIVE UPDATES:

16.00 IST: TEA TAKEN. No play was possible after the second rain delay in Carrara Oval. 

15.10 IST: RAIN AGAIN! Merely 15 minutes after resumption of the game, the rain stops play again. India 132/1 in 44.1 overs

14.20 IST: UPDATE! The play is scheduled to resume at 2:50 PM (IST). The covers are coming off at the Carrara Oval in Queensland.

13.20 IST: RAIN! We have a rain stoppage after 6.3 overs of play in the second session of the day. India 114/1

12.10 IST: DINNER BREAK. An excellent start for India despite Shafali's dismissal late in the first innings. India 101/1 (Mandhana 64*, Raut 1*)

11.40 IST: WICKET! Shafali Verma falls. After showing great composure throughout her innings, Shafali couldn't resist lofting one towards long-off on a slightly overpitched delivery from spinner Sophie Molineux. She couldn't get the timing right, however, and hands it straight to Tahlia McGrath at mid-off. India 93/1 in 26 overs.

11.20 IST: This is a strong start for India. Opener Smriti Mandhana scores a run-a-ball fifty and has come out with an aggressive intent, while Shafali Verma has been considerably mature in her shot selections so far. India 87/0 in 21 overs.

10.20 IST: Australia win toss and opt to bowl! 

Australia XI: Alyssa Healy (wk), Beth Mooney, Meg Lanning (c), Ellyse Perry, Tahlia McGrath, Ashleigh Gardner, Annabel Sutherland, Sophie Molineux, Georgia Wareham, Darcie Brown, Stella Campbell

India XI: Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Punam Raut, Mithali Raj (c), Yastika Bhatia, Deepti Sharma, Taniya Bhatia (wk), Pooja Vastrakar, Jhulan Goswami, Meghna Singh, Rajeshwari Gayakwad

Match Preview: The Indian squad has very little idea about how the shiny pink ball will behave during the course of the game at the Metricon Stadium. Australia, who played their lone day-night Test in November 2017, also go into the game with limited practice but their potent pace attack will be looking forward to wreaking havoc at the greenish pitch here. FULL PREVIEW
