Despite not having much experience .. Indian bowlers who made an impressive effort .. tied the Kangaroos within four overs and created opportunities for Team India. If our batting order on a wicket similar to the subcontinent is good, Dhoka will not be there anymore. After a good start, hitman Rohit Sharma took the wicket unnecessarily. Varun rushed to the end of the second day ‘s game as I was at the stage thinking of the burden on the seniors. And it’s interesting how many runs the grandchildren will face the Aussie pace trio on the third day!
BRISBANE: Varun also won a session in the final Test as the hands changed hands over the seasons. On the second day of the fourth Test between India and Australia at Gabba, only two sessions were possible due to heavy rain. Australia were all out for 369 in the first innings on Saturday. Among Indian bowlers, Natarajan, Shardul and Sundar took 30 wickets. After that, Team India started the first innings with 62 runs for the loss of two wickets at stumps. Rohit Sharma (44; 6 fours) was not good. With eight wickets in hand, India are still 307 runs behind the Kangaroos. Test specialists Chateshwar Pujara (8) and Ajinkya Rahane (2) were at the crease.
95 runs .. 5 wickets
The Aussies, who went on to score 274/5 in the first innings on Saturday, scored another 95 and lost the remaining five wickets. All-rounder Cameron Green (47) counter-attacked the Indian bowlers as soon as he entered the crease. He welcomed Natarajan with two boundaries in the first over and continued the same aggression even after that. Shardul separated the pair after adding 98 for the sixth wicket. Green followed him in the next over. Australia lost three wickets for 315/8 in 4 overs when Cummins (2) was caught in the next over by Shardul. Stark (20 not out) and Lyon (24) counterattacked. The pair broke through the boundaries, adding 39 runs for the ninth wicket to take the Aussies’ score to 350. In the end, Hazlewood (11) also worked for the bat. Sundar and Natarajan took four wickets and all out the Kangaroos.
India did not get off to a good start on the surprise stage. Shubhman Gill (7) made his way to the pavilion in the seventh over. The Indian team lost the first wicket by 11 runs. After that Rohit Sharma along with Pujara led the innings. However, after approaching the half-century, Rohit submitted an unnecessary shot to the Audi wicket. Stark was caught by Longman Longan, who was about to cross the boundary when the ball bounced off Lyon’s leg stump. Captain Rahane, who later came into the crease, played achituchi. After Rohit’s dismissal, the pair stood at the crease for 6.1 overs, scoring only two runs and going to the tea break. Heavy rain fell at this stage. Two hours later, Varun opened the scoring, but the umpires stopped the game after repeated scrutiny as the outfield became swampy.
After scoring 350 in the first innings, the Aussies did not play a single Test match at Gabba.
Half an hour earlier ..
The game will start half an hour earlier in the remaining three days as the entire second day of a session will be wiped out due to heavy rain. This means that the Indian players will enter the crease at 4.30 am on Sunday.
Why the worst shot?
Why? Why? Why ?? That’s an irresponsible shot. I can not believe it. The fielder is in the deep scare leg. Before that two boundaries were hit .. then why not play that shot. You are a senior player. This mistake cannot be ignored. Unnecessarily lost one wicket. – Gavaskar
Didn’t bother playing that shot
Play how I want to play as well. No regrets for playing that shot. A huge shot Audi wanted to increase the pressure on the bowler. I ‘ve scored a lot of runs like that in the past. Want to do the same now. If Lyon wants to throw the ball in the stands. But unfortunately the catch was out.
