India vs Australia 1st Test Match: India Win Down Under in 10 Years and Beat Australia by 31 Runs

India beat Australia in 1st Test Match

Well, it was a long wait almost of 10- year- wait for a Test win Down Under as Virat Kohli’s visiting team outplayed Australia by 31 runs in the first of the first of the ongoing four-match series in Adelaide.

The Asian giants had last won in Australia under Anil Kumble at Perth during their trip Down Under in 2007-08. They were blanked 4-0 under MS Dhoni in 2011-12 and then they had seen a defeat of 2-0 during 2014-15 tour in spite of Kohli having scored enormous runs.

The defeat could be attributed to the fact that we failed to get hold of the game-changing moments in the opening Tests during the two previous overseas tours of the year in South Africa and England, but the team of Kohli made sure that the third time will indeed be lucky for them. Having to defend a 323-run target was done successfully in spite of the stupendous efforts from Nathan Lyon, who did make the task quite difficult towards the end.

The win helped India to get a lead of 1-0 in Test series for the first time in Australia for almost after the long span of 70 years.

Astonishingly Kohli is the first Asian captain to win Tests in Australia, South Africa, and England. He won the Johannesburg Test against the Proteas in January this year and after this, he defeated England in the fourth Test of a five-match series at Southampton later in the August- September.

Highlights

>India defeated Australia by 31 runs to win the 1st Test in Adelaide.

>India had last won a Test in Australia in 2008 in Perth under Anil Kumble.

>Kohli has become the first Asian captain to win Tests in England, Australia and South Africa.

India also becomes the first team to win a Test match in England, Australia, and South Africa in the same calendar year.

Australia resumed the final day of the riveting Test match at 104 for four, faced a tough task as no team could ever successfully chase more than 315 at the Adelaide Oval. The bowlers from India made the task all more difficult for the host team as they were full of determination and patience and striking at regular intervals.

Shaun Marsh gave India looked solid in the morning session as he struck half-century but Jasprit Bumrah removed him and they reached Lunch break with relief and optimism. Earlier the day Ishant Sharma had the iconic star catch of the local favorite Travis Head for 14.

The historic victory was paved by Cheteshwar Pujara, whose first innings 123 provided India with a score that was strong enough to compensate for the bad batting performance by the top order.

The bowlers did a commendable job by striking at regular intervals to provide India a slender 15-run lead.

R Ashwin spun the web around the Australian batsmen, and Jasprit Bumrah rattled hosts with his pace. Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma took the key wickets to help India stay in the game.

The second innings saw a much better performance in India’s batting. KL Rahul scored a quick 44, Kohli patiently got 34 while Ajinkya Rahane scored 70 and shared a key 87-run stand with Pujara, who made 71 to go with his 123.

The lower order was not much in form but still managed to set Australia a 323 run-target. The fourth day was dynamic as Mohammed Shami and Ashwin got two wickets that made situation quite tough for Australia.

Aron Finch, Marcus Harris, Usman Khawaja, and Peter Handscomb were dismissed before stumps on the day before the last day.

Australia could have hoped for a bit of fight from their overnight batsmen Marsh and Head but this did not happen. Captain Tim Paine was determined to change the game but when he got dismissed for 41 the game was over for Australia.

Lyon, performed well with the ball, and collected an unbeaten 38 off 47 balls and did this gave shivers to the Indian team. He managed to score 32-run stand with No. 11, Josh Hazelwood before Ashwin got the catch and got us the much awaited historic win.

Indian Cricket Team for World Cup 2019

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) which is India’s cricketing body has recently introduced a 15 man squad for the ICC World Cup 2019 which will be organised in England and Wales from 30th May till the middle of July.

The ICC Squad is led by none other than Virat Kohli who will be leading the team and MS Dhoni will be keeping wickets as usual. While, Dinesh Karthik has taken the second spot for the wicketkeeper and unfortunately, Rishabh Pant hasn’t made to the list this time.

The BCCI has selected batsmen KL Rahul who is selected on the basis of some of his good domestic and international performances.

Though, Shankar’s inclusion is still surprising to most of us. Most of them were expecting Rishabh Pant to be selected in the final list, chief selector MSK Prasad has defended the decision by saying “Definitely a case where we debated in length. We all were in unison that either Pant or DK will come in only when Mahi is injured.

Indian Cricket Team for World Cup 2019:

In an important game, wicket keeping is also important. That’s the reason we went with Dinesh Kartik”.

The chief selector, MSK Prasad has further added that KL Rahul will be the reserve opener and will play in the middle order depending on what the team management deems fit to be.

There was some confusion going on between the board for making the final selection of batting spot. Now they have selected Vijay Shankar for this role.

They have told that they have tried on a few people at No. 4, we gave some chances to Rayudu also but what Vijay Shankar brings is three-dimensional. We are expecting him to see at no. 4 to begin with, told by MSK Prasad at the time of press briefing.

India will begin with its World Cup 2019 campaign on June 6, 2019, where they will be playing against South Africa at The Rose Bowl in Southampton.

While India VS Pakistan encounter is scheduled for June 16 at the Old Trafford in Manchester.

Have a look at Full Squad: Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami.

On April 10, 2019, Dhoni has shared a picture with Sakshi on his official Instagram handle, wherein, we can see that they both are sleeping together on the floor of Chennai’s airport.

He captioned their cute picture as, “After getting used to IPL timing this is what happens if u have a morning flight.”

In an interview, Dhoni had talked about his wife, Sakshi and has shared that “She is the only one that provides me with the spark I might sometimes need. She is the person to whom I have a reference. In person, she is both loving and inspirational at the same time.

Sometimes she travels with me. One day, we both will see the sights together and then she says that can she move on the number second please on his priority list? But for the moment, I am here to play cricket. I have been giving this honour to play for my beloved country India so I want to see it through.’’
