Team India have registered an emphatic win over the Australian cricket team in the 1st match of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023 in Nagpur.
Team India registered a 132 runs and a innings win over the Aussies, who from the 1st day onwards have looked uncomfortable while batting against the Indian spin trio of Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel.
Batting after winning the toss, Australia could only score 177 runs in their 1st inning as Jadeja took a 5 wicket haul.
Meanwhile India scored 400 runs in their 1st inning with a century from India captain Rohit Sharma. Further, the Indian lower-order of Jadeja, Axar Patel and Mohammed Shami ensured India reach 400 runs as they themselves scored more than Australia’s total score.
Chasing India’s 1st inning lead of 223 runs, Australian batting order fall down to India bowlers like a building of cards as the Aussies were dismantled for just 91 runs. Following this win, the Twitter have been making fun of the Australian team, who did so much pre-match practice to prepare to play Ashwin, who took 5 wickets haul in the 2nd inning.
India have defeated Australia by an innings and 132 runs.

Such a complete test performance by India. Captain @ImRo45 lead from the front and @ashwinravi99 @imjadeja & #AxarPatel are priceless in such conditions.— Utkarsh (@iamuttu) February 11, 2023
Feel demons were never on the pitch but in the mind of #Australia #INDvAUS #BGT2023
Job well done by Mahesh Pithiya.— Jatin (@jatinsang) February 11, 2023
Aussies remain clueless about Ashwin.
Never judge a pitch until both teams have batted on it. If both teams struggle, it's the pitch. If just one team struggles, it's the skills. Well played Team India 🇮🇳 👏🏽 #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/b7QgZXlCXU— Wasim Jaffer (@WasimJaffer14) February 11, 2023
