Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar has pointed out the mistake of the Indian bowlers during the Ahmedabad Test match. The fourth and final match of the series began on Thursday (March 9) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. On the first day, Australia batted first and got the team off to a good start. According to Sunil Gavaskar, the Indian bowlers did not perform as expected in the final hours of the first day.
The Australian team lost four wickets for 170 runs on the first day of the Ahmedabad Test. After the Indian team got the fourth wicket, the captain Rohit Sharma took the new ball. Rohit took this decision with the intention of making the Indian bowlers bowl more aggressively, but the bowlers did not live up to the captain’s expectations. At the end of the first day’s play, Cameron Green and Usman Khawaja had an unbeaten partnership of 85 runs. Sunil Gavaskar looks upset with the performance of the Indian bowlers in the last one hour on the first day. He also gave his special reaction about this.

Speaking on Sports Star, Gavaskar said, “This should be discussed. The Indian team will be unhappy with their performance in the last hour after taking the new ball. The way the runs were spent, the boundaries were scored in that one hour, it felt like the Australian batsmen were playing completely free.”
The efforts of the Indian bowlers fell short
Gavaskar added, “We don’t like to see the way the bowlers bowled with the new ball. A better effort could have been made here. The heat was high, I also know, and it is not easy for fast bowlers to bowl all day. But still, you got a new ball and you are playing for the Indian team. I definitely think a little more effort could have been made.”
