Kona Srikar, a Telugu boy, made his debut in Team India through this Test. Bharat, who looked very smart and enthusiastic throughout the match, stumped with lightning speed and reminded MS Dhoni.
The first Test between India and Australia as part of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy began on Wednesday (February 09). On the first day of this Test, which is being held at Nagpur, Team India showed absolute dominance. After losing the toss and fielding first, India dismissed Australia for 177 runs. Veteran spinner Ravindra Jadeja ruled the Aussies down with 5 wickets. Ravichandran Ashwin excelled with 3 wickets. Meanwhile, Telugu boy Kona Srikar made his debut in Bharat team through this test. Bharat, who looked very smart and enthusiastic throughout the match, stumped with lightning speed and reminded MS Dhoni. Australian batter Marnus Labushane (49), who was rooted in the crease, succumbed to India’s attack. Labushane came forward and tried to play a cover drive on the fifth ball of Jadeja’s bowling of Australia’s innings of 36 overs. But the ball turned and went straight into the hands of wicket keeper Bharat. Bharat got the ball and knocked down the bails in the blink of an eye.
In this order, the field umpire Nitin Menon reported to the third umpire. The Aussie star player had to reach the pavilion as it was clear that Labuchane was away from the crease during the stumping. Meanwhile, the video related to Bharat’s stomping has gone viral on social media. Netizens are commenting that Telugu Tejam reminds me of Dhoni, the former captain of Team India. In this match, Bharat was active in taking DRS decisions along with stumping. At the end of the first day’s play, India scored 77 runs for the loss of a wicket. Captain Rohit Sharma (56) and Ravichandran Ashwin (0) are at the crease. KL Rahul (20) was disappointing.
