The opening day was affected by the weather.
Deepti Sharma batted for 12 while Tanya Patia did not open the account yet as the players left the field and the covers were brought in within 20 overs after dinner.
Thunderstorms and heavy rain fell, after which no game was possible.
India lost two wickets in the second session, with captain Mithali Raj scoring 30 and debutant Yastika Padia 19.
Earlier, fancy opener Smriti Mandana (127) smashed some records on the way to breaking an impressive maiden Test century as India scored 231 for 3 during the lunch break.

Mandana hit 127 off 216 balls with 12 fours and a six at the Carrara Oval, adding to India’s 102 for the second wicket with Punam Rawat (36) in Australia. Shafali Verma on the opening day affected by rain.
