2nd Test Australia vs India: India got off to the worst possible start after Murali Vijay was bowled neck-and-crop for a duck by a peach from Mitchell Starc. It was a big, booming inswinger from Starc that got the better of Vijay, who did not move his foot at all and was planted to the crease. That created the gap between the bat and pad, only to go and disturb the timber. It was yet another failure for Vijay and now fans feel it is high time India looks beyond him. It was just the start Australian was looking for, to get an early breakthrough and get Cheteshwar Pujara in with the ball still brand new.
Here is how Twitterverse bashed Vijay for his failure.
Earlier, The Indians had their tail up when they got the last 4 wickets of the hosts for 16 runs. But they have been quickly quietened in the third over of their innings. Earlier, India wrapped up Australia for 326 but it seems it to be a good score on the lively track of Perth. Marcus Harris was the top scorer for the hosts with 70 runs, Travis Head also scored a crucial half-century to lift Australia from a precarious position. Fast bowler Ishant Sharma was the pick of the Indian bowlers as he scalped four wickets to wrap Australia’s innings. Sharma claimed the last two Australian wickets off successive balls and will be on a hat-trick when he will bowl in the second Australian innings.
