Brief Score, Day 1: Australia 241 all out (Matthew Wade 58, Steve Smith 41; Parvez Rassol 7/45, Sarbajit Ladda 2/90)

Board President XI’s spin allrounder Parvez Rassol took a stunning 7-wicket haul to wrap up the Australian innings for a below par 241 at stumps on the Day 1 of the warm-up match between the two teams on Tuesday.

Rasool wreaked havoc in his three spells as he helped his side bowl out the visitors for a modest total in 88.3 overs on the opening day at the Guru Nanak College ground.

The youngster did expose the now familiar weakness of the Australian batsmen against spin bowling and also presented Chief Selector Sandeep Patil and Co with an option beyond Ravichandran Ashwin and Harbhajan Singh in the off-spin department.
