Brisbane:

Middle-order batsman Manish Pandey cracked 13 boundaries and one six to take India A close to the 200-mark but once he was dismissed by Chadd Sayers, the rest of the batsmen could only score 42 runs.

At stumps, Cameron Bancroft (10) and Joe Burns (12) were at the crease with Australia A at 24 for no loss at the Allan Border Field.

Earlier, Naman Ojha won the toss and elected to bat and openers -- Akhil Herwadkar (34) and Faiz Fazal (48) scored 74 runs in 32.1 overs before the former was caught by Peter Handscomb off Daniel Worrall.

Five overs later, other opener Fazal was cleaned up by David Moody. Shreyas Iyer (19) and Pandey then brought up the hundred before the 21-year-old Mumbaikar was caught and bowled by Swepson.

Pandey and newman Karun Nair (15) then added 70 runs and once the former was dismissed, Nair too could not stay longer and was sent packing by Swepson with Handscomb taking the catch.

Skipper Ojha (2) too was trapped infront of wicket by Sayers after he spent 32 balls at the crease and Swepson and Moody then picked up two wickets each to wrap up the Indian innings in 81.3 overs.

Brief Scores: India A 230 all out in 81.3 overs (M Pandey 77; M Swepson 4/78) lead Australia A 25/0 in 6 overs.
