India vs Australia: ‘Virushka’ reunited! Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma was spotted in the stands at the Adelaide Oval during the ongoing first Tes between India and Australia. Anushka was wearing a striped jumpsuit while egging on the team. This is not the first time she has been spotted at a cricket ground. She has been a regular at cricket venues in recent times, be in England, Australia or the IPL.
Here is the Video:
On the work front, Anushka has a big release at the end of the year, where ‘Zero’ hits the theatres. Shah Rukh Khan plays the leading man in the film that also has Katrina Kaif. Whereas Kohli is unarguably facing the biggest test of his captaincy career, he is expected to change the script in Australia this time would be chasing history trying to beat the Kangaroos for the first time in Tests in their own backyard.
Earlier, off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took 3 for 38 as Australia were restricted to 117 for 4 at tea on day two of the first Test against India. At the break, Peter Handscomb was batting on 33 while Travis Head was unbeaten on 17 runs. Australia still trail by 133 runs, after India made 250 in their first innings.
Post lunch, Ashwin bowled an incisive spell that tied down the Australian batsmen. First up, Shaun Marsh (2) gifted his wicket immediately after the resumption of lunch break. In the very first over, he went for a wild slash against Ashwin, but ended up playing on as Australia were reduced to 59/3.
Usman Khawaja (28) and Handscomb then added 28 runs for the fourth wicket. The latter played some loose strokes at the start of his innings, but got some streaky boundaries off Mohammed Shami (0/26) to help the scoring rate move along.
The big moment came in the 40th over, when Ashwin got Khawaja’s wicket. The left-hander had been tied down, but he was content eating up deliveries. He pushed forward against Ashwin, but gloved it to keeper Rishabh Pant.
India appealed, and then opted for DRS review with hotspot showing a faint tickle on Khawaja’s glove as Australia were suddenly reduced to 87/4.
