India vs Australia 4th Test Sydney: After winning over the internet with their adorable pictures on the new year’s eve, the hit couple of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma were once again caught by the shutterbugs during the ongoing fourth Test between Australia and India at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). On the opening day of the Sydney Test as Team India made Australian bowlers pay for their erring line and length, it’s Bollywood starlet Anushka who won the hearts from off the field.
The superstar actress was a long way from being bowled over as she endured the sight of her Indian captain husband Kohli being caught behind by his Australian counterpart. Sharma was glued to the Test action at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Thursday as the world’s best batsman accumulated a nail-bitingly slow 23 runs before being dispatched.
Stunning in a floaty, dusty pink dress with her hair pulled back into a sleek ponytail, it’s understood the 30-year-old — who has more than 22 million Instagram followers — was secretly escorted into the grounds via a back entrance to avoid being mobbed.
Overall, it was a great day for the Indian cricket team courtesy to the sheer brilliance of Cheteshwar Pujara, as he guided them to 303/4 in the first innings on the opening day of the fourth Test against Australia. Pujara kept his nerves after the early blow in the form of KL Rahul’s wicket and built his momentum throughout the match with different partnerships. Australia would have to bring their A-game on tomorrow if they were to get any result in their favour.
Opener Mayank Agarwal was another solid performer, continuing his good form with a 77-run knock. At stumps, Pujara (130) and Hanuma Vihari (39) were holding the fort for the visiting side, which is in pursuit of a maiden Test series triumph on Australian soil. Virat Kohli’s men have already secured the Border-Gavaskar Trophy with their unassailable lead.
At the Sydney Cricket Ground, Pujara faced 250 balls, hitting 16 of them for fours, and added 75 runs for the unbeaten fifth-wicket stand with Vihari. Post-Tea, Australia were able to make a quick breakthrough as Virat Kohli (23) was caught down leg. They had consistently bowled towards the leg-stump against the Indian skipper, cramping him for room and the ploy worked as he gloved behind off Josh Hazlewood (2-51) in the first over after the break.
