Matt Renshaw and Mitch Starc hit fifties but India dominated the opening salvos.
Umesh Yadav (4-32) was the pick of the bowlers with Ravi Ashwin applying the brakes as the Australian middle order crumbled on a turning pitch. Late in the day, Starc smashed 57 not out to help Australia end on 9-256.
Australia 256 for 9 (Renshaw 68, Starc 57*, Umesh 4-32 ) v India.
