Australia vs India 2018, 1st Test: They come from different world, but cricket seems to be uniting former Indian cricketer Murali Karthik and WWE Star Matt Hardy, who is in India. Matt Hardy seemed to be present at the Sony Networks studio, where Karthik explained the rules of cricket. Initially, Karthik asked him if he knew the rules of cricket, to which he said he was clueless.
That is when Karthik initially started by showing him the ground on the screen and then showed him what is the pitch and explained to him that it is the place where cricket is played. He also taught him signals of six and a few others. The WWE star seemed to be an obedient listener. Matt Hardy would be present for the WWE Sunday Night Raw and that would be exciting for the fans.
Meanwhile, at stumps on Day 1, it looks like a sorry scorecard for India. The top order got blown away in no time and they were reeling at 41/4 at one stage. After that, Cheteshwar Pujara found an ally in Rohit Sharma and together they formed a partnership. Just when it appeared that Sharma will run away with the show, a moment of brain fade resulted in his demise from the crease. Pujara though didn’t lose hope and kept on adding partnerships with the lower order. Courtesy his hundred, the visitors have got a respectable total on the board now although it still appears below par on this surface.
Pujara scored a gritty 123 when India was under the pump and saved the blushes for the tourists.
