IND vs AUS: Standout, Brave Performance from Indian Batters Rohit, Axar, & Jadeja 

Rohit was key in building momentum for the Indian side as he recorded his 9th test match century and first century as a captain in a test match. His knock gave India the much-needed start. But eventually, Rohit was dismissed for 120 runs in 212 balls by Australian skipper Pat Cummins.

Axar and Jadeja, however, came when India was struggling with the fall of wickets and somehow with their bravery they pulled India out of trouble and gave India a much need 223-run lead. Axar finished his batting with 84 runs from 174 balls. While Jadeja finished his batting with 70 runs from 185 balls. 

IND vs AUS: Australia Struggling with the Bat 

Australia where never really in this game, all their batsman struggled against the Indian spinners. No one really kept going in the second inning as they crumbled for 91 and gave the match away to India. Only four players scored two-digit runs for Ausis in the second Innings. 

IND vs AUS: Ausis’ only takeaway from this match 

Todd Murphy was the only player’s performed from the Australian team, as he picked up his first five-wicket haul in the first innings. He was playing his debut test match and he grabbed a dream five-wicket haul. Other than Todd’s performance no one else really stood up for the team and lead the attack from attack. 

Now Australia needs to understand what they did wrong in Nagpur and try to work on it and come back strong in the second test match.
