The first match of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy has begun already in Nagpur and it has been a fair and square match between the Indian cricket team and the Australian cricket team at the time of lunch.
After winning the toss, Australian team captain Pat Cummins opted to bat first. However, it was not the kind of start the Aussies had desired as they lost 2 wickets in quick succession.
Mohammed Siraj got Usman Khawaja out by LBW method while Mohammed Shami just ripped apart the stump to dismiss David Warner.
But since after then, both Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne has recovered the inning for the Aussies, who have now headed back into the pavilion at the time of lunch for 76 runs for the loss of 2 wickets.
Labuschange is currently batting on 47 runs from 110 balls while Smith has scored 19 runs from 74 balls. Meanwhile, some Australian people have been calling that Usman Khawaja as broken DRS system. But then the Twitter got furious and teach them a lesson.
"Ball tracker broken? 🤔"
