IND vs. AUS 1st Test:

India and Australia are now playing in the much-discussed Border-Gavaskar Trophy, where a berth in the World Test Championship final is on the line. The first game of the series between the two teams is now taking place in Nagpur.

Who got selected ?

Vice-captain KL Rahul was one of the players whose selection was in question prior to the game since many believed that he should have been left off the team in favor of players like Suryakumar Yadav and Shubman Gill.

Subhman not selected?

Shubman Gill, who has been in outstanding form in limited overs formats, lost out to Rahul for the opening place in the playing XI. India got off to a fast start as they entered the batting order after bowling Australia out for 177, mainly thanks to captain Rohit Sharma. KL Rahul, who has been having a rough spell of form, found it difficult to connect bat to ball. The Indian vice-captain gave Todd Murphy, a rookie off-spinner, his first Test wicket by chipping a ball right back into his hands in the penultimate over of the day.
