India were dismissed for 105 in the first innings of their first Test against Australia on Friday.

The world's top-ranked side, unbeaten in their previous 19 Tests, lost their last seven wickets for 11 runs as Steve O'Keefe ran through their batsmen to pick up his maiden five-wicket haul.

Australia paceman Mitchell Starc earlier ripped through India's top order with two wickets in three balls.
