Sports Desk :- The first match of the Test series being played between India and Australia was thrilling. The 4-match Border-Gavaskar Trophy started in the Nagpur Test. Australia won the toss and decided to bat first and India's spinners were bowled out for only 177 runs in the first innings. Ravindra Jedja, returning after injury, took 5 wickets, while R Ashwin sent 3 batsmen to the pavilion.
Australia's innings was limited to 177 runs
The whole world is watching the Nagpur test. Before the start of this match, so much ruckus was created by the Australian media about the pitch here that its talk started everywhere. Australia's first innings was reduced to just 177 runs on the first day of the match and Indian spinners took 8 wickets but nothing like this was seen in the pitch. What the Australian media said about the turn of the pitch turned out to be completely false. After Australia's innings was reduced on the first day, when India's opening pair was batting, then former Indian allrounder Irfan Pathan made us aware of very important figures.
Australian media always emphasizes on negative points
He said, Australia's media has a habit of exaggerating, in that also it always focuses on negative points only. There was no such special spin in this pitch of Nagpur, due to which so much ruckus was being created. Out of all the Test matches played in the past, the lowest turn has come on this pitch. If you look at the figures, the turn in New Zealand, Sri Lanka and even Pakistan is more than this.
The Indian team has created problems for itself.
Indian bowlers have taken wickets with their practice and hard work. Talking about the pitch, Irfan Pathan said, see here the pitch is going to be the same for both the India and Australia teams. For the Indian team, it will be even more difficult pitch because here India will have to come to bat in the last innings. In a way, India has created trouble for itself.
