Australia fully Dominated India
Australia has completely dominated India in the first two days of their World Test Championship match at The Oval. Before Travis Head passed the 150-run threshold on Day 2, Steve Smith reached his century in the first over. After lunch, the Indian attack finished off the Australian innings, totaling 469 runs in the process. In response, Australia’s quick bowlers halted India’s strong start as Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, and Cheteshwar Pujara all left the pitch cheaply. In the end, India reached 151-5 at the end of the day thanks to a heroic combination between Ravindra Jadeja and Ajinkya Rahane, however Australia still held the lead.
Ganguly not happy Rohit and Dravid
After Lyon dismissed Jadeja, Ganguly attacked India captain Rohit and head coach Rahul Dravid on-air for Star Sports, bringing up the team’s exclusion of Ravichandran Ashwin despite his position as the No. 1 bowler in the ICC Test rankings. Who is to suggest that an off-spinner cannot play on a green pitch? Nathan Lyon and Ravindra Jadeja, a left-handed batter. In Test cricket, he has taken more than 400 wickets. He now dismissed the top batter for India. Turn and Bounce were both present, he added.
Ganguly didn’t just express his displeasure with Ashwin’s call at this juncture in the game. The 50-year-old acknowledged that India had made a mistake by playing four seamers and rested Ashwin, the match-winner, like most or every expert present at The Oval.
