The opening day of the Nagpur Test of the Border Gavaskar Trophy saw Team India overpower the Australians. Notably, KS Bharat and Suryakumar Yadav made their eagerly anticipated Test debuts. Yadav has been in outstanding form in the game’s shorter formats, and now he will have the opportunity to showcase his skills in Test cricket as well.
Before the first test, there was a lot of ambiguity regarding the starting XI. Although there was much discussion about Shubman Gill’s selection, Team India’s selectors decided to start KL Rahul at the top of the order and Suryakumar Yadav in the middle. Former Indian cricketer Ajay Jadeja expressed his opinion on Surya’s induction in the same context.
It’s a difficult one. More entertaining to watch is Suryakumar Yadav. However, from the perspective of Indian cricket, both of them were chosen for the squad based on their recent performance. It’s a really tough call. However, it appears that the Indian squad has provided opportunities to individuals who have put in a lot of effort in domestic cricket, whether it be for KS Bharat or Suryakumar Yadav. The Indian team has treated its players fairly, according to Jadeja, who spoke with Cricbuzz.
The first Test in Nagpur was off to an incredible start for Team India.
Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj struck first as the Australian squad elected to bat first, eliminating David Warner and Usman Khawaja, respectively. The Australians’ ability to score some much-needed runs was greatly aided by the partnership of Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne. Peter Handscomb and Alex Carey also contributed crucial hits for Australia.
The Indian bowling attack put on a strong performance, allowing the Australians to score 177. Rohit Sharma, Team India’s captain, attacked the Australian bowlers right away, which helped the team get off to a strong start. After the first day’s play, team India has taken over the lead after losing KL Rahul as a wicket.
