Australia vs India 1st Test Day 1: Big wickets do not come easy and the wicket of the No 1 batsman needs something special! India captain Virat Kohli was the biggest fish and his catch by Usman Khawaja became the biggest talking point on the first morning of the first Test at Adelaide. It was an extra special effort by Khawaja at gully, who threw himself in the air to his left and grabbed on to the ball from thin air with just one hand to dismiss Kohli for three runs. Pat Cummins was over the moon as he got the prized scalp.
Once he took the catch not just Virat Kohli, but the entire Australian team was surprised. Also, what was special the way he cushioned his right hand while landing as he could easily have injured himself and the ball would have popped out.
Here is how Twitter reacted to the catch:
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.
At the time of filing the copy, the post-lunch session began and India was 63/4 with Rohit on 22 and Pujara on 11.
