    • There were 3 interruptions after 1, 5.1 and 6.1 overs. There was a thunderstorm after the 6.1 over, resulting in play resuming only at the scheduled post-tea session. Play was extended after the scheduled close of play. Bad light ended the day after 41 overs.
    • Indian innings ended 5 minutes before the scheduled lunch. There was no play after that due to persistent drizzle.
    • Two minutes after Ganguly's dismissal, Blewett was also out for 99 in the 3rd Test between Australia and New Zealand in Hobart.
