Resilient Team India knock kangaroos out in the Adelaide Test
Virat’s men have once again shown the cricketing world that why they are considered as World’s no 1 test team. They have beaten Aussies in the first test played in Adelaide and did it with some style. Team India arrived in Australia as the favorites for the first time after a while and showed their fine form in the T-20 series.
Now was the time for the real test of character, when they looked to dominate Australia in the white clothes. They were determined to showcase their talent on the biggest stage and ready to defeat Australia in their own backyard.
Team India registered their first victory of the test series today in Adelaide in a close encounter and won the match by 31 runs. The sheer resilience and fighting spirit showed by the Indian team were exceptional, which resulted in such a great victory over their arch-rivals. This match will surely go down in history books as India won their first test match in a Test series in Australia and first since 2007-08.
Australian batsmen fought hard to save the match, but the Indian bowlers were not ready to lose hope. After Australia’s frustrating 32-run last wicket partnership, Ashwin broke down their resolute defense and made Hazlewood knick one off his pads to KL Rahul. Aussie skipper Tim Paine and Shaun Marsh led the Australian defiance and took on Ashwin which weakened India’s plan to control the game with spin.
Indian seamers have impressed a lot in this test and took 14 wickets out of the 20. Captain Kohli was also happy with the efforts of his team and praised the fearless performance of his young team. All the bowlers clicked well together and hunted the kangaroos down as a pack. Bumrah gave some crucial breakthroughs and dismissed Marsh, Paine, and Cummins who were battling hard to save the day for Australia.
India will have to be ruthless in their next match and look to go 2-0 up in the 4-match series. Kohli did not perform well in this match and India still ended up victorious in this thrilling encounter. The Indian team will be highly motivated now and look to carry on their winning form in Perth.
Kohli’s regime is ready to rule down under and will look to go down in the history books by defeating Australia on their home soil, in all the test matches.
