Australia Vs India- Why Sunil Gavaskar are disappointed from bowling performance

The former captain of the India team, Sunil Gavaskar, will be very disappointed with the efforts in the last hour on day 1 of the fourth test with Australia. 

India's team, which reduced Australia to 170 for 4 by the 71st over, failed to set capitalize on it after taking the new ball in the match innings. Rather, it was the Australia team that enjoyed the last 1 hour of the cricket game, as a duo of Cameron green and usman khawaja added 85 unbeaten runs by stumps for the 5th wicket.

From the Indian team, Rohit Sharma took the new second ball in the 82nd over and made 54 runs in the last 9 overs, when they did not succeed in getting a wicket.

This is the reason why Sunil Gavaskar is unhappy with the bowling performance of the India team with the second new ball. The conversation between the team in the dressing room is probably, and he said it best if we discuss it earlier rather than using it straight away now. 

After taking the new second ball, there is time to concede the rune they did and the number of boundaries they did. The new ball bowlers make some overs. But this is not enough to achieve a win against Australians. The efforts should be better, said Gavaskar. 

While the Khawaja scored in the first test century on Indian soil and was not out at 104 scores by the end of play on 1 day, Cameron Green has not been beaten on 49 runs off 64 balls at the stumps. For the India team, Mohammad Shami was got pick on the day as a bowler with a runs figure of 2 for 65
