Ravindra Jadeja was being himself, very accurate! Steven Smith looked confident during his stay at the crease but a rare misjudgement from the Australian captain cost him his wicket and Jadeja’s accuracy paid rich dividends. The Australians controlled the first hour but India roared back in the second. Shaun Marsh was very active and looked solid. Can he continue the same in the next session? Only time will tell. Join us in a bit for the post-lunch session.
In Test cricket, everything matters. A change of ball or even an altercation could change the game. That is what happened today. Matt Renshaw pulling out of a delivery when Ishant Sharma was in his bowling stride made the latter angry, and it was enough for the pacer. He steamed in on the fourth ball of that over, trapped his man LBW and exuberant celebrations followed.
