The first Test between India and Australia is being played in Adelaide. On the first day, when the game ended at 233/6, Ravichandran Ashwin was unbeaten on 15 and Riddhiman Saha on 9. Ashwin is the player from whom the team has high hopes. This is because they can not only bat well, but are also expert bowlers.
Heavy on Ashwin
Ashwin has scored four centuries in Test cricket. In such a situation, India hopes to play a big innings once again and take the team beyond 300. Ashwin and Saha have a 27-run partnership on the first day. If Ashwin scores a half-century, the team could easily cross the 300 mark. After this, the Indian team will want Ashwin to bowl hard at one end. If they stop the run from one end, there will be pressure on the Australian batsmen, which will benefit the Indian fast bowlers.Expectations from the Bumrah and Shami duo
Apart from Ashwin, Jaspreet Bumrah and Mohammad Shami could be the trump cards for India on the second day of the match. Because of his bowling action and the angels he created, Jasrit Bumrah could be more dangerous than a pink ball. Similarly, Mohammed Shamini’s seam bowling could give Australia an early shock.
