The second match of the four-match Test series between India and Australia will be played in Melbourne from December 26. In the first Test played in Adelaide, the Indian team lost to Australia by 8 wickets. The first two days of the Day-Night Test saw India in a very strong position, but on the third day the team suffered a heavy defeat due to the embarrassing performance of the batsmen. Many cricket giants believe that it will not be easy for Team India to return to the series after a poor performance in Adelaide. Meanwhile, former India opener Gautam Gambhir has given the team a boost.
Memes that went viral on BCCI over Virat Kohli’s paternity leave
Speaking on Star Sports’ cricket connected show, Gautam Gambhir said, “He needs to remember that the first two days he dominated, he was completely ahead in the game in both the days.” He would have been unhappy because of the season, but again he needs to remember that there are three Test matches left and his best player Captain Virat Kohli is not with him at the same time. In such a situation, along with Mohammad Shamini, Ajinkya Rahane will also have a lot of responsibility. Rahane will also be responsible for what combination goes with it.
Things did not improve in Sydney before the third Test, then Cricket Australia said what the next step would be.
For the second Test, Gautam Gambhir had earlier suggested that India would land in Melbourne with five bowlers and Rahane would bat at number four. The former opener also talked about placing Shubman Gill, Habshabh Pant and KL Rahul in the playing XI.
