Indian Cricket Team had to push hard on Day 2 where the Australian batsmen seemed to have no problem against pace and spin. The Australians have managed to score 480 runs. Ravichandran Ashwin he took 6 scalps and gave away 91 runs in his 47.2 overs. Ravichandran Ashwin he recorded his thirty-second five-wicket haul and was fairly disciplined in his line and length.
Australia would be booming with confidence as getting 480 runs on board is huge, while Men in Blue would require some serious effort to come close to Australia’s total despite the track being the flattest of BGT 2023. Skipper Steve Smith would be aware of the fact. that both Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill can take the game away from them in the morning session of Day 3.

Sanjay Manjrekar on Ravichandran Ashwin
Sanjay Manjrekar was interacting with Star Sports and was asked about Ravichandran Ashwin.
“The Ashwin class we saw there. This isn’t a pitch we’ve seen in previous matches, where one brings three, but Ashwin made it happen. In a field like this, it’s incredible. He got a bit lucky with Cameron Green’s wicket. Getting the next hitters out was first class stuff, Carey and Starc.” said Sanjay Manjrekar.

“He has a lot of 5-wicket hauls, but if he gets one here he’ll be very proud. This is an incredible toss, she’s a sleeping beauty, if she gets 5 at this wicket, or even 4, that’s a first-class performance.” added.
Stern test for India
Head coach Rahul Dravid and skipper Rohit Sharma would be aware of the fact that they have to win this test match to secure a place in the 2021-23 WTC final; otherwise, they hope Sri Lanka does not beat New Zealand 2-0. It seems unlikely that India will play like the Australian batsmen as they have the firepower present in the form of Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer.
Skipper Steve Smith needs to use Mitchell Starc carefully as on this track, the pacers took a lot of hits. Once again the role of Nathan Lyon would be quite decisive in these conditions. It would be interesting to see how Steve Smith uses Cameron Green, as the flamboyant all-rounder has the ability to break partnerships.
