The first Test match of the four-Test series between India and Australia is being played at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium in Nagpur. Australia won the toss and decided to bat first. Usman Khawaja and David Warner were both dismissed for one run each and Australia lost two wickets for two runs. After this, Steve Smith and Marnus Labushen together took the score to 84 runs. Labushen remained unlucky and became the victim of Ravindra Jadeja after scoring 49 runs. At the same time Smith’s wicket also went to Jadeja’s account.
During the match, there was a funny banter between Smith and Labushen and Jadeja and Smith. When Smith was beaten on a ball by Ravindra Jadeja, he praised his ball by showing thumbs up. At the same time, Ashwin and Labushen were seen indicating to make Jalebi.
Australia lost five wickets for 109 runs, but after that Peter Handscomb and Alex Carey handled the innings together. Apart from Labushen and Smith, Ravindra Jadeja also took the wicket of Matt Renshaw. The way the pitch is in Nagpur, it looks like even 200 plus runs in the first innings can prove to be a good score.
