Indian Cricket Team would be aiming to keep the winning run against Australia. The Men in Blue outclassed the mighty Aussies in the 1st Test match and gave a reality check to them as losing the match by an innings & 132 runs that too inside 3 days is quite humiliating in modern cricket. Australian batters looked in a hurry to score where there was ample time left in the Test match.

Australia would be hoping that Mitchell Starc & Josh Hazlewood are available for selection who have been nursing injuries. Pat Cummins in a post-match press conference had given a hint that Hazlewood won’t be fit enough for the 2nd Test match. The Aussies need to quickly regroup and rediscover their mojo.

Jaydev Unadkat To Play Ranji Trophy Match

The All-India Senior Selection Committee along with the team management has released the left-arm speedster Jaydev Unadkat from the squad. The pacer would take a part in the Ranji Trophy 2022-23 final match for his team Saurashtra against Bengal on 16th February at Kolkata. This decision may be a sign that the management wants him to get some match practice before the last 2 Test matches against Australia.

Great Chance for India

The 2nd Test match is scheduled on 17th February in Delhi where we can expect a similar wicket. The hosts would be hoping that the T20 star batter Suryakumar Yadav scores some runs. The right-handed batter was undone by the sheer brilliance of Nathan Lyon in the 1st innings and throughout his innings he was looking quite keen to score quick runs.

Skipper Rohit Sharma looked like a man on a mission where, unlike previous times, he didn’t take risks and waited for loose deliveries. Rohit Sharma’s form at the top means that there is no added pressure on the likes of Cheteshwar Pujara & Virat Kohli as Rohit is someone who can make a big score.
