Nagpur Test: Virat, Pujara have become puppets in the hands of the new bowler. Along with them, Suryakumar Yadav also joined the pavilion in his own style. As a result, India’s middle order, which was strong on paper, fizzled out on the field.
Jokes are exploding on the net on Team India’s middle order. On the other hand, the exes are getting fired. Virat, Pujara and Suryakumar Yadav were expected to show their strength in Nagpur. In the first innings, they were badly beaten by the Australian bowlers, especially by the new bowler. Virat and Pujara, who have immense experience, were bowling to a new bowler, and that too was dismissed on a very poor ball, leaving everyone disappointed. Along with them, Suryakumar Yadav also joined the pavilion in his own style. As a result, India’s middle order, which was strong on paper, fizzled out on the field.
These three batsmen from India would have run a flood of runs in Nagpur. But, as the situation turned worse… their expectations remained a dream. These three batsmen who are capable of adding 300 runs in Indian cricket could not add even 30 runs to the score board together. The sad thing is that the former are getting fired up because their poor shots are the reason for their poor performance.
Become a joker?
Because of the shots they selected for this situation, they became jokers on the net. However, Rohit stood at one end and rained runs. He scored a century with a brilliant performance and brought Team India into the lead. Let’s have a look at the shots played by the trinity of Team India..
Pujara: Pujara is known as India’s Test specialist. But, if you see the shot that he got out, you have to hold your head. That too the bowler is new. The ball is the worst. Pujara wanted to score on a ball bowled by Todd Murphy. He tried to play sweep for this. But he was caught by Boland at short fine leg.
Virat: Virat Kohli added his wicket to the pavilion even worse. The ball he bowled turned out to be one of the worst balls of the game on the second day. Kohli tries to flick the ball which goes outside the leg stump. But, the ball reached the edge of the bat. He gave a catch to wicketkeeper Carey. With this, Murphy’s dream of taking the wickets of two big batsmen in his first Test has also come true.
Suryakumar considers Test as T20: Suryakumar Yadav wanted to bat in his own style. In fact, he thought to play shots like T20 in the Test too and got clean bowled. Suryakumar Yadav’s wicket was taken down by Lion. He scored 8 runs off 20 balls in his first innings in Test cricket.
