IND vs AUS 1st Test Cricket Match Live Score, Day 1: The Border-Gavaskar Trophy returns to India after a span of six long years. Rohit Sharma’s Indian team is all set to take on Pat Cummins’ Australian team in this four match Test series.
Pacers Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami gave India a brilliant start in the first Border-Gavaskar Trophy Test against Australia in Nagpur on Thursday. The pacers who opened the bowling for India after Australia opted to bat, struck in the initial overs to send back both the openers — Usman Khawaja and David Warner — inside the first three overs.
IND vs AUS: 1st Test Day 1 LIVE SCORE
Siraj was the first to strike on his first ball of the match as he trapped Khawaja in front for LBW dismissal. The fuller ball swung into the batter and while it looked like it was missing leg, India made a successful review and forced the opener to depart for a score of just 1 off 3 balls.
Warner fell on the first ball of the third over, Shami’s second. He was cleaned up by a delivery from round the wicket as it zipped through the bat-pad gap to uproot the off-stump.
The dismissals brought Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith to the crease as Australia look to recover from the early setbacks. Also, the successful start from Indian pacers would have definitely stunned the visitors as they were hugely focussed on facing the spinners in their preparations for the series.
Meanwhile, India have handed Test debuts to Suryakumar Yadav and KS Bharat.
Rohit Sharma led with an unbeaten 56 after India bowled out Australia for 177 runs at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Nagpur on Thursday. Rohit and KL Rahul stitched 76 runs for the opening wicket before the latter fell for 20 runs on the bowling of Todd Murphy. India were 77 for 1 at stumps on Day 1. Earlier, hosts India bowled out Australia for a below-par total, thanks to Ravindra Jadeja’s five-wicket haul and Ravichandran Ashwin’s three wickets. Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj had reduced Australia to 2 for 2 in 2.1 overs to provide India a terrific start before the duo of Jadeja and Ashwin ran through the spine of Australian batting line-up. Marnus Labuschagne was the highest scorer for Australia with the score of 49.
