Finch and Harris added 112 for the opening wicket.

Australia gained the upper hand on the opening day of the second Test against India at Perth on Friday.

Australia finished the day at 277/6, largely thanks to two partnerships, first a 112-run opening stand between Marcus Harris and Aaron Finch and then an 84-run stand for the fifth wicket between Shaun Marsh and Travis Head.

Harris, Finch, and Head all scored important 50s on a pitch that offered pace, extreme variable bounce and seam movement.

Ishant Sharma and part-time off-spinner Hanuma Vihari took two wickets each, while Jasprit Bumrah and Umesh Yadav picked up one apiece.
