India’s position in the finals of the World Test Championship is poor. Australia scored 469 runs in the first innings. In reply, India scored 151 runs for the loss of 5 wickets by the end of the second day’s play. Also, the major responsibility of the Indian batting was on the top order. But the batting order failed once again. Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill were dismissed cheaply. Cheteshwar Pujara was also bowled on the inside ball. Indian batting depended on Virat Kohli. Kohli also got off to a good start but was then bowled by a good short pitch from Mitchell Starc.
Virat scored 14 runs in 31 balls. So, Kohli (Virat Kohli) touched the short pitch over the wicket and the ball went out. Kohli could not get the bat off the line in time and the ball hit his gloves. At second slip, the ball went to Steve Smith. Smith took a good catch while jumping in the air. However, after Kohli’s dismissal, India’s score was reduced to 71 for four.

Australia’s bowling attack has put the Rohit Sharma-led team in trouble. Based on the first innings, the Indian team is still 318 runs behind and the Indian team still needs 119 runs to avoid the follow-on.
The axis of the Indian team in the hands of Rahane
