India lost in the Lion Whirlwind, Australia got a modest target

Nathan Lyon’s spin bowled host India in the second day of the Indore Test. In their second innings, Rohim Sharma’s team scored only 163 runs after losing all their wickets. As a result, Australia needed only 76 runs to win the series for the first time. Three days left.

Australian spinner Nathan Lyon took eight wickets in an innings for the second time in his international Test cricket career. He spent only 64 runs to take eight wickets. And bowled 23.3 overs. Maiden over did one.

India did not get off to a good start in their second innings. Opener Shubman Gill was dismissed for just 5 runs off 15 balls. Another opener Rohit Sharma was dismissed for 12 runs. Virat Kohli scored 13 runs in the next wicket. And Ravindro Jadeja was out for 7 runs.

Cheteshwar Pujara tried to handle the pressure with Shreyas Iyer in the fifth wicket partnership. But Auji pacer Mitchell Starc did not allow the pair to grow. Iyer returned with 26 runs.

After that, Pujara continued to fight with Ashwin-Patel for a while. Picked up a personal half century. Couldn’t last long after that. Lion’s ball was caught by Smith for a personal 59 runs. Apart from this, India got out for 3, Ashwin for 16, Yadav for zero and Sami for zero. And Akshar Patel remained unbeaten on 15 runs.

Peter Handscomb scored 19 and Cameron Green scored 21 runs with the bat. None of the remaining batters could touch the double digits. Carey 3, Starc 1, Lion 5 and Murphy returned for no runs.
