Fans and analysts were eager to watch whether David Warner would finally be able to perform effectively in Indian conditions before the Nagpur match between India and Australia.
The Australian contingent had expectations due to their knowledge from the previous two visits.
Warner had a terrible game, though, failing to get the visitors off to a strong start and contributing to India's thrashing of the visitors.
#1 Poor record in India In his nine Test appearances in India so far, David Warner has scored 399 runs at a dismal average of 21.
Warner participated in all four tests on the previous two tours, and the squad suffered greatly from his inability to give Australia strong beginnings.
#2 The Ashwin factor Warner was caught by Ravichandran Ashwin with a slider in front of the stumps during Australia's woeful second attempt to bat.
In the longest format of the game, Ashwin has already dismissed the veteran 11 times, which is concerning for both Warner and the Australian squad.
#3 His form There were requests for David Warner to be benched throughout the Australian summer due to his awful performance.
However, the Australians supported him, and in his 100th test match against the Proteas, he went on to score a double ton.
But during the remainder of the series, he was only able to post that one successful score.
