In the first Test match, their run rate is just 2 RPO. There has been a lot of improvement in run rate. Even Cricket Legend, Sachin also tweeted that he had never seen so much defensive play by Australia especially at home.
Australia has score 3RPO in the Perth Test. Coming to Indian bowling, Speedster Ishant Sharma lead the squad by taking four wickets followed by Hanuma Vihari, Bumrah, and Yadav took 2 each.
The middle-order batsman, Hanuma Vihari has become very handy with his bowling skills. During England series also, he has taken important wickets in the crucial times. If he maintains consistency like this, definitely he will become a promising Test All-rounder for team India.
Team India which started its first Innings has lost both Murali Vijay and KL Rahul very cheaply. Now Virat Kohli(19) and Cheteshwara Pujara(11) are taken the responsibility of repairing the first Innings. India is at 38/2 in 15.0 overs.
