Shreyas Iyer took a stunning catch at leg gully to dismiss the Australian opener. Usman Khawaja was their best batsman in the first innings. His wicket was very important for Team India and Shreyas knew it very well. Khawaja going in the day 2 was a massive advantage for the Indian team. However, Head’s positive intent hurt India a little bit.
Shreyas Iyer’s return
Shreyas Iyer has been a silent performer for team India in the ODI and test cricket. His efforts were not seen in the performance of Pant. Pant’s performance hid the performance of Shreyas Iyer. Unfortunately, Iyer injured and missed the opening match of the series. This gave SKY a chance to debut in test cricket. However, he came fit for the second test.
In this test match, the Aussies won the toss and decided to bat first and scored 263 runs. Usman Khwaja was the leading run scorer in the first innings. Then India bundled out for 262 runs. As a result, Australia 1 run lead for the second innings.
Playing Ashwin, Jadeja, and Axar in the playing should be considered as playing with 14 players. Any of the three could bat easily in the top 6 and perform well. They play a vital role in both batting and bowling If you want wickets they are there if you want runs they are there.
Rahul Dravid further said that
” If Shreyas Iyer is fit, he will walk into the 11 straight away.”
