Scott Boland conned Shubman Gill during the WTC Final. India started strong but was left on the edge of its seat after losing Gill and Rohit sharma just before tea.
Scott Boland’s strike early in India’s first inning sent the in-form Shubman back to the sidelines. This ensured Australia didn’t feel Josh Hazlewood’s absence.
Boland pitched a fairly straight delivery which was just outside the off-side but went inwards. Gill went, but was completely confused by the ball which took out the top of his stump.
India made a strong start, but fell apart after Gill and Rohit were lost just before the tea break.
Virat Kohli bats at the fourth position while Cheteshwar is on third base. Australia’s first inning was bowled out at 469 runs. This left India with a 432-run deficit.
On the second day of World Tests, India’s bowling unit had made an incredible comeback, limiting Australia’s first innings score to just 469.
