In the first test match between India and Australia, the Indian batting side were all out at mere 36 runs in Adelaide. It was one of the lowest runs ever scored by the Indian cricket teams in a test match.
After the first test match, captain Virat Kohli left for India to be with wife Anushka Sharma who is expecting her first child, due in January 2021. With the absence of captain Kohli, bowler Mohammed Shami, who was ruled out of the series due to an arm fracture and the humiliating loss of the first test match, pressure was built up on the Indian cricket team.
However, with the stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane’s determination and will to take up this challenge, India emerged surprisingly victorious. Rahane’s century in the first innings made all the difference and made him the man of the match. The third test match of the Border-Gavaskar series will be played in January.
