India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin dismissed opening batsman David Warner for a quickfire 40, who was later seen with his family.

The 28-year-old was spotted at the stadium showering all his attention on his two-month-old baby daughter Ivy Mae and fiancee Candice Falzon.

The sportsman was seen doting over the tiny tot.

During the lunch break, wind swept the MCG followed by light drizzle. The ground staff pitched a proper tent over the pitch, digging nails into the ground to keep the covers intact.

Australia were 90 for one in their second innings at lunch after India's first innings folded for 465 early in the morning.
