Cheteshwar Pujara, playing his 101st Test match, could not do anything special and got out after scoring only one run. Ravindra Jadeja was sent up by changing the batting order but he too could score only 4 runs, Shreyas Iyer’s account was also not opened.

Spinners troubled Indian batsmen in the Indore Test match
Before the start of the match, all the cricket experts said that the fast bowlers will dominate the Indore wicket, but after the start of the match, the exact opposite happened. Six out of six wickets were taken by the spinners. Matthew Kuhnemann, playing only his second Test match, took 3 crucial wickets for just 17 runs in six overs. Experienced spinner Nathan Lyon also returned figures of 2/23 in 7 overs. The same Todd Murphy trapped Virat Kohli in the web of his spin.
