IND v AUS First Test : India Decimates Australia, Breaks World Record

India deprived Australia of a Test match win in their first test match in Australia. India managed to keep Australia a solid 31 runs away from the target score beat the Australian Test Squad at their home grounds after ten years.

Australia was dismissed at 291 with 2 balls remaining on the 5th day of the test. Provided with a target of 323 runs to win the Australian Test squad started inching towards their target. but the Indian Bowlers ravaged the Australian batting contingent. The whole Australian team was bowled out at 119.5 overs  in the second innings. Ashwina, Bumrah and Shami managed to take 3 wickets each.

Rishab Pant claimed a world record for wicket-keepers taking 11 catches during the test. The  Australian fans were disappointed when Pat Cummins went back to the pavilion at 259-9. But Nathan Lyon and Josh Hazlewoods last minute partnership managed to score 32 runs before getting caught at first slip. Lyon remained not out on 47 bowls.

Australia’s hopes for winning started to plummet when Captain Tim Pain was bowled out on the first ball after lunch. He had managed to score a solid 41 in the morning session but unfortunately went back to the pavilion whilst trying to perform a pull shot on Bumrahs ball.

After their Captain’s departure to the pavilion Cummins and Mitchell Stark stabilized Australia’s condition by forming an 8 wicket partnership. but unfortunately failed to score significant runs and they could only drag the total score up to 291.
