India vs Australia 1st Test: It seems Indians are in love with Adelaide! First, we saw Bhuvneshwar Kumar trying to surprise fans but getting surprised himself as Bharat Army sang for him, now we see Rohit Sharma and Ravichandran Ashwin have turned reporters and hit the streets of Adelaide where they are asking fans about what they feel about the upcoming four-match Test series and about India’s chances.
Here is the video posted recently by BCCI.
This also highlights that the team is in a good state of mind 24 hours ahead of the crucial Test, where both the cricketers have been picked. Earlier in the day, BCCI announced a 12-man squad for the Adelaide Test and Rohit Sharma and Ashwin were included. While, Ashwin looks a certainty to make the cut, with Rohit it is still a little dicey as KL Rahul and Murali Vijay are also in the side and both can open and also Hanuma Vihari is there, somebody who is looked at as India’s No 6, a place Rohit has batted in the past. Also, the exclusion of Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja from the squad is facing criticism on social space.
If Rohit gets a game, he would dearly like to make the most of it to cement his spot for the Perth Test.
