Kangaroo forgot the mountain of spin in front of Jaddu-Ashwin, all maths failed, Australia piled on 177 runs
Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami started
Electing to bat first after winning the toss, the Kangaroo team got the first blow in the form of Usman Khawaja. He became the victim of Siraj on the first ball of the second over after scoring one run, then David Warner was clean bowled by Shami on the first ball of the third over. In this way, Australia got two wickets for 2 runs. From here till lunch, Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith did not let any setback happen. However, Kohli definitely dropped Smith’s catch on Akshar’s ball.
Then Jadeja and Ashwin created a mutiny with balls
When the game started after lunch, Sir Jadeja created a furore with his spinning balls. He brought the Kangaroo team back on the backfoot again, dismissing Marnus Labushen (49) and Matt Renshaw (0) on the last two balls of the 36th over. He also dismissed Steve Smith (37) after this. However, he could not complete the hat-trick. In this way, Jadeja gave back to back 3 shocks, then Ashwin also took the lead and dismissing captain Pat Cummins (6) and Todd Murphy (0) made the score 174 for 8 by tea time.
This is how Australia’s first innings ended
After this, Jadeja gave 9th blow to Peter Handscomb while doing LBW. Handscomb scored 31 runs in 84 balls with the help of 4 fours. This was Jadeja’s 5th wicket in the innings. After this, Ashwin clean bowled Boland on the score of 1 run as the last wicket. Before the match, the Kangaroo team faced a lot of balls from Mahish Pithia, who is called duplicate of Ravichandran Ashwin. He had prepared a lot for all the spinners including Ashwin, but the Indian warriors told that duplicity is not going to work. Original is original.
In the innings, Jadeja took 5 wickets for 47 runs in 22 overs, while Ravichandran Ashwin took 3 wickets for 42 runs in 15.5 overs. Both of them took 8 wickets together, while Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami took 1-1 wickets together.
