Video highlights of the first day's play between India A and Australia in Chennai on Saturday.

After being axed from the Indian Test side for the series against Australia, Gautam Gambhir replied in the best possible manner by hitting a sparkling century as he guided India A to a comfortable 338 for four against Australia on the opening day.

Riding on Gambhir's 112 alongwith solid half-centuries from Rohit Sharma and Manoj Tiwary, India A batsmen dominated the proceedings for the better part of the 90 overs at the Guru Nanak College ground.

Enroute his 33rd First-Class century, Gambhir faced 162 deliveries hitting 13 fours and three sixes. Rohit was fluent during his innings of 77 while Tiwary, who recently made a comeback to competitive cricket after an injury lay-off, also looked good for a big one as he was batting on 77.
