Debutant Kuldeep leads India's fightback after Smith ton

And Kuldeep's brilliant show eased the pressure on his senior spinners, who were both not getting much purchase on a first-day pitch where the ball spin and bounced only if pitched well up.

The Australia skipper's Test average now stands at a sparkling 61.57, bettered only by former colleague Adam Voges (61.87) and the iconic Don Bradman (99.94) among those to have batted in a minimum of 20 innings.

Speaking after the end of play on day one, Kuldeep mentioned that he had learnt the flipper - which he used to dismiss David Warner - from Australian great Shane Warne.

Selectors were grasping for straws trying to find another Shane Warne and since Smith started off as a legspinner, he was given a punt.

Kuldeep, in fact, considers Warne as his idol.

Kuldeep was drafted into the squad as replacement for captain Virat Kohli, who had to sit out after failing to recover from his shoulder injury that he picked up in the penultimate Test in Ranchi that ended in a draw.

"Dream come true for me. He has promised that he will have another session with me in near future", the youngster said.

"As he told, I kept following it".

Speaking about his bowling style, the youngster said: "I think people find it hard as normally not many bowl chinaman". This sentiment from a fan perfectly summed up the feeling that Australian captain Steve Smith is generating during this Test series against India.

Finding boundaries at will. they deflated the Indian attack before lunch as they scored at more than 4 runs per over and finished the morning session at 131/1/ However. post-lunch session saw a different India, as Kuldeep's wrists changed the tide in India's favour.

"All four wickets are special but I guess the first wicket (of Warner) was important from the team's point of view", Kuldeep said. "I did not want him to know what I was bowling".

"That was something you get a little bit excited about, hopefully that can continue with the new ball tomorrow and Patty (Cummins) and Josh can pick up a couple of early wickets".

Ruling the wicketsIn today's match played at Dharamsala, Ashwin took just one wicket, but it has now made him the man with most Test wickets in a season. They tried all manner of tactics - targeting his stumps, bowling well wide of off stump, and even had their two right-arm quicks make the highly-unusual move of bowling around the wicket to him.

Australia's wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade, when asked if Smith was batting on another planet, said: "Yeah, he is".
