Hyderabadi pacer Mohammed Siraj continued his form and gave Team India a good start. On the first ball of the first over of the second over of the innings, Usman Khawaja was dismissed lbw. Khawaja reached the pavilion with just one run off 3 balls. Senior bowler Shami was also excited by the super start provided by Siraj. Then he clean bowled the star opener David Warner on the first ball of the over. Warner could not stop Shami’s super good length ball. He played defense and was clean bowled. As the ball hit the wickets with lightning speed, the stumps flew in the wind. With this, Warner (1) was disappointed and headed towards the pavilion. The video related to this has now gone viral on social media.
As for the match, the Aussies who lost two wickets in the beginning are playing consistently. Kadapati Varthalande scored 50 runs for the loss of 2 wickets in 21.2 overs. The team’s senior batsmen Marcus Labuschere (30) and Steve Smith (10) are playing slowly and moving the scoreboard forward. The duo added 48 runs off 117 balls for an unbeaten third wicket stand. Earlier, openers Khawaja (1) and David Warner (1) were dismissed for single digit scores. In order to reach the final of the World Test Championship, Team India needs to win at least three Tests in this series.
