MS Dhoni reaches Chennai for the IPL preparations, and Jason Roy hit a century.
It’s going to be another packed day in the cricket world, with the 3rd test series between Australia and India to be held within three days. There are no surprises given in the breakneck speed at which they succeed. England hopes to take the 2-0 lead in Dhaka in the upcoming ODI series against the Bangladesh team. It makes the must-win situations for them. And it was only the day before the women's premier leagues in Mumbai when the Gujarat giants take the Mumbai Indians at DY Patil stadium tomorrow.
The Australian team may experience some miserable outings in Delhi and Nagpur, but the Indore team comes back with smiles on their player faces. Thanks to Nathan Lyon's brilliance, who takes the eight wickets at Holkar stadium, at which the Australians limit to second innings of India to only 75 runs on 2nd day. Steve Smith and team players will be required to score 76 runs in the third test to win it and pull back setting for a final and fourth test that are played in Ahmedabad.
Even if the Australian team manages to win the two tests, the border Gavaskar trophy begins with India. It will knock out the India team from the ICC world test championship final reckoning since they should win the spot by a minimum margin of 3-1.
The target appeared minuscule, but player Cheteshwar Pujara, who was able to score a fighting half-century on the second day, has not any hope.
“It’s a difficult pitch to batting on. It is not so easy, and you are required to trust your defense and ensure you are required to get the pitch or, if short, play off the back foot. The runs 75 may not be too much, but there is some chance, pujari said at the end of game day.
Pujara acknowledged the failure of his companions to build decent partnerships in 2nd dig. If there are more partnerships with axar, it will be helped. I am learning some tricks, and if there is demand, I feel instead of playing too many dot balks, if you take some chances, you get the runs. Now, you are confident when it is required, and I play some shots, he said.
