The first test match between Australia and India is very much in favor of the host nation now, owing to India’s poor batting display.
The openers, Rahul(2) and Vijay(11) got out cheaply. Sadly, even Kohli(3) put up a forgettable performance.
Now, only Pujara can save India’s inning now and he needs substantial support from another batsman. Youngun, Rishabh Pant has come out with an attacking mindset and he may bag some quick runs.
In that case, Ashwin should support Pujara and resurrect the inning. The conditions are favorable to batting but Rohit(37) blew away a golden opportunity after a promising start.
Pujara is currently batting on 31 and Pant is on 17. Hazelwood has picked up two wickets while Starc, Cummins, and Lyon got a scalp each.
Team India’s score stands at 115-5 from 45 overs.
