On the first day of the Nagpur test, India prevailed over Australia. At the end of the day’s game, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the Test is currently under the control of India.
Indian spinner Ravindra Jadeja took five wickets for Australia in giving up 47 runs. All Australian cricket made 177 runs immediately after the T-break.
The 82-run standing of Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith gave the Kangaroos some hope but the Indian Spinners didn’t let them run.
Following this, the Indian team entered the field and scored 77 runs by losing a wicket until late in the day’s play.
Captain Rohit Sharma plays unbeaten at 56.
Australia and India are currently the top two teams in the World Test Championship. If India wins this four-test series 3-1, they will play in the Test Championship final to be held in London in the summer.
On the other hand, Australia will need to draw just one match out of the next four Test matches to reach the final.
India has won 15 consecutive Test series since 2012. Australia will also try to stop this Indian victory bandwagon.
Not a good start for Australia this morning in Nagpur. Usman Khawaja and David Warner became victims of Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami. The opener had returned to the pavilion in the first three overs.
After that Labushen and Steve Sthim came over and handled the Australian innings. Their association led the team to a respectable score.
But Labushen was stumped after lunch after scoring 49 runs off a spin from Jadeja. After that, Matt Renshaw, who landed on the field, was hit by Jadeja on the first ball.
Jadeja has not played any cricket matches for India after August 2022. He had injured his knee and was recovering after treatment.
The same ball hit the stump penetrating Sthim’s defence. Smith was Jadeja’s fifth victim in this match.
This marks the eleventh time that Ravindra Jadeja has taken five wickets in a Test match.
After the match, Ravindra Jadeja said, “I enjoyed bowling today. I had rhythm in my bowling. I set it up. The ball was coming out of hand well. Due to lack of much bounce at the wicket, I bowled stump to stump. … trying to get low birth weights and bold opportunities. And that’s what happened. So I’m very happy.”
India has been accused of spraying water and rolling rollers on selected parts of the Nagpur pitch to create a swing wicket.
But in today’s game, despite the spinners taking eight wickets, there was no excessive spin on the pitch.
Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin completed 450 wickets in his Test career by taking three wickets for 42 runs. He played 88 games to reach this record.
In this case, only Sri Lankan spinner Muttiah Muralitharan has a better record than him. Murali took 450 wickets in 80 Test matches.
Today, there was no special advantage in the Australian team that went to the bowling. From India, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma came forward with big shots.
But just before the end of the day’s game, KL Rahul delivered a return catch to Todd Murphy, playing his first Test.
