On Tuesday, the Indian cricket team scripted heroics as they thrashed the kangaroos in the second Test match to level the series 1-1. The Aussies, under the leadership of veteran Tim Paine, need to get back to the drawing board to plug the dampened holes of their team’s ship. The Aussies batting unit continued to underperform in the second Test as well. The lethal top-order is finding it precarious to put up a solid partnership against the ruthless Indian bowling attack.
Meanwhile, the good news remains on cards as they look forward to bouncing back stronger in the 3rd Test which is slated to begin from 7th of January next year. The usual opener David Warner who sustained a major groin injury during the ODI series is all set to make an emphatic comeback against the Indian team at the SCG.
David Warner may don the whites in the third Test
In a recent line of developments, Paine pointed out that the 34-year-old is on his road to recovery. He is gearing himself up to take guards for the national team once again very soon, “David looks very good. He has started running between the wickets, so early signs with him very good for the third Test, which is awesome for us,” he said at the post-match press conference after Australia lost the second Test by 8 wickets.
Talking about the pocket-size dynamite’s potential, he tends to be the missing piece in the Aussie batting line-up. The star opener apparently never fails to set the solid foundation stone for the team with his willow. His capacity to find fences frequently in a red-ball match makes him a popular name in the era of slam-bang cricket. In 84 Test matches, the experienced premier batsman has garnered 7244 runs at an astounding average of 48.9. The Indian bowling unit needs to do their proper homework before they lock horns against the top-class batter at his home turf.
The absence of biggies like Virat Kohli, Mohammed Shami, and Ishant Sharma did not seem to haunt the visitors. They decimated the ever-shining baggy green in all departments of the game belling the cat for the hosts. Hence, the Indian fans and experts look forward to some delicious desserts on the end-games platter.
