After dominating the 1st day of 1st Test match of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023 in Nagpur, the game has changed its head upside down as India is struggling to cope with the Australian debutant spinner Todd Murphy.
The Indian cricket team dominated the outing in day 1 of the 1st match of the 4 match series vs Australia.
After dismissing the Aussies for the score of 177 runs by a little more than 2 sessions, the Indian captain Rohit Sharma’s brilliant fifty guided India to 77 runs for the loss of KL Rahul’s wicket.
Day 2 started well for the Indian team. But after nightwatchman Ravichandran Ashwin was dismissed, both Cheteshwar Pujara failed to settle in the match. Pujara scored only 7 runs.
Virat Kohli was dismissed for 12 runs from 26 balls just after the game resumed after lunch. While Virat Kohli has somewhat regained his form in white ball format, he still continues to struggle in red ball cricket.
The last Virat Kohli century is still from that 2019 series vs Bangladesh after which he had not scored a single century till 2022. After Kohli’s failure again, a part of Indian cricket fans were not happy and is disappointed with Kohli’s constant failures.
Virat Kohli departs for just 12 runs.— CricTracker (@Cricketracker) February 10, 2023

On what basis he is playing test cricket??— Kevin (@imkevin049) February 10, 2023
Sarfaraz deserves more chances than Kohli
Interesting to see Kohli’s expression every time he gets out in test cricket these days. It’s like he never believes it’s his own fault, it’s only bad luck that he gets out— Aroop Chatterjee (@tinga39) February 10, 2023
Kohli always gives his wicket to budding /debutante bowlers for lifetime memorable moments.— indian🇮🇳… 🗨 (@darshan1642002) February 10, 2023
Another Failure by#Indian batsmen in spinning conditions— Cricastic (@writter_vambu) February 10, 2023
Time to Drop #Kohli and KLRahul
Make them play #RanjiTrophy#INDvsAUS
Jadega and Ashwin have looked more assured in tests than Kohli over last many years now. Kohli looks like getting out every ball these days #INDvsAUS— Akash Jain (@Akashjainiima) February 10, 2023
Great session for India. Feels weird to say Ashwin and Jadeja looked more comfortable on this pitch then Rahul and Kohli. 😭— Prateek Sharma (@prateeek5harma) February 10, 2023
