Australia vs India 1st Test Day 1: It is Test cricket, folks! Where is the art of leaving? The Indian top-order crumbled like a cookie in the first morning of the Test series. Apart from the toss, the tourists won nothing. It seemed India was in a hurry to score runs. It is Test cricket and you have all the time then why? Starting from KL Rahul’s tentative prod to Rahane throwing his bat at a wide ball, it was just the start India was not looking for. Virat Kohli, too could not resist the temptation of the cover drive and got sucked into it, only to find a thickish outside edge which was taken by Usman Khawaja at gully. It was a one-handed screamer by the Australian opener to send Kohli packing for three runs.
Here is how Australian journos reacted to the dismissals and India’s poor show in the first morning.
India was reduced to 42 for four and with Rohit and Pujara at the wicket at lunch, India would be hoping they resurrect the innings which will not be easy.
