In the first match of the Border Gavaskar Trophy, Australia scored 177 runs in the first innings after winning the toss and batting first. In reply, the Indian batsmen who came to bat could not do anything special. But Indian captain Rohit Sharma is keeping the team’s hopes of victory alive. While all the Indian batsmen are struggling in front of the Australian bowlers, on the other hand, 35-year-old Rohit Sharma has scored his ninth century in Test cricket. With this century, he has also achieved a new feat, Rohit is the only Indian player to have achieved centuries in all three formats (T-20, ODI, and Test) while being the captain. As of the writing of this article, Rohit Sharma is unbeaten after scoring 105 runs in 180 balls, during this inning, he has hit 14 fours and two sixes.

Runs not scored by other Indian batsmen

Apart from captain Rohit Sharma, runs were not scored by the rest of the Indian batsmen. First KL Rahul could score only 20 runs, while Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara was caught by T Murphy while playing short. All the Indian fans expected another century from Virat Kohli but he too got out after scoring only 12 runs. Suryakumar Yadav, playing his first match in the Test match, also got out after scoring just 8 runs.

Brilliant bowling from Todd Murphy

Playing his first match, all the Indian batsmen are seen struggling in front of the brilliant bowling of Australian spinner Todd Murphy. Till writing the article, he has so far taken 4 important wickets for 54 runs in 22 overs. Indian opener KL Rahul was the first in his list of four wickets, then Rohit and Ashwin’s partnership was also broken by taking Ashwin’s wicket who came as a Nightwatchman. Cheteshwar Pujara and Kohli were also trapped in the web of their spin.
