Rohit Sharma’s brilliant bowling change brings the wicket of Marnus Labuschagne for India in the first session of the 4th Test against Australia
India and Australia are currently locking horns in the last game of the Border-Gavaskar series 2023 in Ahmedabad. With the series being stranded at 2-1, the visitors won the toss and decided to bat first, in what has been a good batting surface.
Indian bowlers bowled some tight lines and lengths upfront but Australia openers Travis Head and Usman Khawaja showed great patience after watching out a few deliveries, they unleashed themselves and scored runs with good pace.
Head (32) and Khawaja (27* at the time of writing this piece) gave a solid start to their team and scored 61 runs for the opening partnership. But R Ashwin struck on time as he removed Head to provide his team with the much-needed breakthrough.
After that, Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne looked settled against spinners but skipper Rohit Sharma outfoxed them with a brilliant change as he brought back Mohammad Shami into the side. The pacer troubled the right-hander and then rattled his stumps for just 3 runs.
The brilliant bowling of India saw them making a staggering comeback in the second half of the first session. In the first 15 overs, Australia scored 61 runs without losing a wicket but the last 14 overs was a display of extraordinary bowling as they conceded just 14 runs and took 2 wickets.
