Ind Vs Aus 1st Test Playing
The time has come for the first Test between India and Australia. In a few minutes, the first match of the four-Test Border Gavaskar Trophy started at the Vidarbha Stadium in Nagpur. After winning the toss, Aussie captain Pat Cummins chose to bat first and team captain Rohit Sharma announced his playing eleven. In this match, two young players made their debut for Team India. They included T20 star Surya Kumar Yadav and Andhra player KS Bharat in the Test team. Team India legend, ex-cricketer, ex-head coach Ravi Shastri gave the test cap to Surya Kumar Yadav. KS Bharat was given the test cap by the senior player of the team, Nayawal Chhateshwar Pujara.
But Suryakumar will bat at number five. KL Rahul will open with that. With Suryakumar’s entry, Shubman Gill, who scored centuries recently, got a place. With Bharat’s arrival, Ishan Kishan also failed to get a place. The Border-Gavaskar series will be even more crucial for India, who are hoping for a place in the World Test Championship (WTC) 2023 final. Team India can qualify for the WTC title if they win at least three Tests in this series. With that, India is entering the ring with the goal of victory. On the other hand, this series is also crucial for Australia, who have secured the WTC 2023 final berth. Moreover, the Kangaroo team is trying to make up for the past failures.
