As it happened: Australia vs India, 2nd Test, Day 1
After losing the crucial winning match against the hosts in Adelaide, team India won the toss and elected to show their batting strength at first. Some important changes were made by both the teams. The change of captaincy is a key, notable factor in those changes. Yes, standing captain Virat Kohli has been replaced by regular captain of India none other than MS Dhoni, whereas Australia’s erstwhile captain, Michael Clarke takes rest due to injury during the fielding of 2nd innings in Adelaide. The post of Australian captain moves to Steven Smith, who turned 45th Test captain of Australia.
While batting at first, India have been consistently losing wickets at regular interval irrespective of the finest 50+ opening partnership between Vijay and Dhawan. The last match twin centurion (in 2 innings) Virat failed to expose his abilities in this innings and some fault decisions by umpire made the things worse at crucial time. But, the inform opener Vijay had a fruitful partnership with Mumbai batsman Rahane to taste his 5th Test century at the Gabba. Finally India has finished their batting at 311/4 at Stumps on Day 1. This is the second highest score during the day 1 of a Test match by any visitors at this ground since 1960’s. At the wickets point of view, Hazlewood made some sessions to Australia before Tea.
