The last and fourth Test series between India and Australia is taking place at Brisbane’s Gaba Stadium. After scoring 369 in the first innings, Australia were all out. Two young bowlers, Tee Natarajan and Washington Sundar, who made their debut for Team India, took three wickets each while Shardul Thakur also bagged three wickets. At the same time, India have not started well and the team has lost Shubman Gill (7). Pat Cummins made his way to Gill’s Pavilion. When Shubman Gill came to bat in the first innings, no sponsor sticker was shown on his bat, which caused cricket fans to react differently on Twitter.

Shubman Gill has a naked bat. I hope some sponsors lined up to get this exciting young batsman

Shubman Gill’s performance as an opener in this series is very good and he has impressed everyone with his game. Gill has scored 161 runs at an average of 53.67 in two matches of the series. However, in the first innings of Brisbane they certainly could not do anything special. When Shubman Gill landed at the Gabba ground with Rohit Sharma, everyone’s eyes were on his bat. Gill’s bat had no sponsor sticker, which surprised fans. Trolling Fan Prithvi Shah, with no sponsors, said Shah’s bat was MRF sticker and Shubman Gill’s bat.

How about having a class player bat sponsor like Shubman Gill? #AUSvIND

Earlier, India were bowled out for 369 in the first innings thanks to a stunning bowling by Natarajan and Washington Sundar. However, Shardul Thakur broke the century partnership between Cameron Green and Tim Paine by dismissing Penn. Subsequently Sunder bowled Green and brought much comfort to Team India. Nathan Leon dismissed Josh Hazlwood as the last wicket-taker, while Washington Sunder threw for a pavilion while Nathan Lyon was aggressively batting in his 100th match.
