India and Australia started their first Test Series on January 12, 2019 at Dharamshala. The series was named as Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Virat Kohli is keen on test cricket and doesn't want to loose this series because he thinks India will lose the number one spot if they loose this match. All the matches are in border area of India and Pakistan so that even spectators can travel easily between both countries with no visa issues or problems about security etc... Opening batsmen are not getting runs in this series because of slow pitch conditions but middle order batsmen are scoring runs unlike last year's tour by England where middle order collapsed under pressure from English pace bowlers.. Wickets were slow for bowlers but still spinners were economical enough to take wickets from Australia fast bowlers like Mitchell Starc who took only one wicket from four matches played against India during Border-Gavaskar Trophy series.. In first inning Shami took 4 wickets to pushed Aussies below 200 run mark which helped him get Man of Series Award alongwith Rohit Sharma who scored highest runs in this match (101 not out) while other players like Vijay Shankar(71), Rahul Tripathi(68) got half centuries as well.. Pitcher angle and line was good from Bumrah(2/35)and Shami(4/20).
Virat Kohli is keen on test cricket and doesn't want to loose.
Virat Kohli is a great batsman and a captain. He is the best batsman in the world at present, who can hit sixes from every corner of the ground. He also plays some slow innings as well. His performance with both bat and ball has been exceptional throughout his career so far. He has led India successfully in all formats of cricket i.e., one day internationals (ODIs), Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) & test matches under him have always played aggressive brand of cricket which have helped them achieve victories in most cases but when it comes to "the gentleman's game" he loses himself sometimes due to frustration or emotions which might not be good for team harmony sometimes but he still manages well by keeping his cool during crucial situations
The matches are in the border area of India and Pakistan. The border area is a disputed area, which means it's not clear who owns it. It's also a sensitive area because there have been tensions between India and Pakistan over the border area for many years.
A "disputed zone" refers to land that both countries claim but don't agree on who owns it.
The opening batsmen have not been able to make the most of their starts in this series.
Virat Kohli, who is one of the best players in the world, has scored just 107 runs in four innings. He has also made a couple of mistakes during his innings, which could have cost India dearly if not for some solid support from their middle-order batsmen.
Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay have also failed to take advantage of their starts at various points during this test match. Both teams will hope that these two players can turn things around when they bat later on today.
Chris Rogers is another player who has struggled to find form against India's bowling attack earlier in this series as well as during this game so far; he has scored only 34 runs in four innings with an average of less than 4 runs per over so far!
Rahul Dravid's calm demeanor has been a perfect fit for the Indian team, which has often been criticized for being too confident, and prone to playing with arrogance. His batting style is based on careful placement and solid defense rather than flashy strokes, making him seem like a throwback to another era. This makes him an ideal fit for the conservative style of cricket played by the modern Indian team.
Dravid scored a century in the second innings of day two's play, which was followed by another century in day five's play (first session).
"It's great to be scoring runs," he said after his fifth century had brought India within sight of victory on Sunday morning. "I always try hard not just with my bat but also with my mouth."
Indian pace was good and spinners were also economical. Bumrah and Shami bowled well, they were able to take wickets and also maiden some runs in the middle overs. We can say that all our bowlers did a great job today.
In the first inning of the second test match, Mohammad Shami took 4 wickets to pushed Australia below 200 runs. The first innings score was a poor one for India as they lost the match by an innings and 36 runs. In the second test match, neither side managed to set up a competitive target for their opponent and the game was over in three days with India losing by an innings and 36 runs once again.
Bumrah and Shami bowled excellently in the first innings, and they should be given credit for their efforts. Both bowlers took four wickets each, while Bumrah also picked up a five-for in the second innings.
In the first innings, it was Shami who impressed most with his control, especially after many years of struggling with injuries and form issues. He bowled a good length outside off stump at pace that troubled India's batsmen who were used to facing slower bowling on pitches which offered more help to them than what they received in Mohali or Delhi. However, he could not carry this momentum into his next spell as he struggled with accuracy after coming back from injury against England recently.
Bumrah too had an excellent start to his Test career when he took 4 wickets on debut against West Indies last year but did not do much afterwards until now when his match figures read 12-4-21-4 (6). This is certainly one area where both these bowlers need improvement if India wants them playing regularly for them since there are better options also available for selection apart from Jasprit Bumrah being injured which leaves only Shardul Thakur as an option left behind him who has been performing well so far this series too!
Virat Kohli is the captain of the team. India won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy by 2-1 win against Australia at Dharamshala, India. Australia won the first match by 75 runs in Pune, India. The second ODI was abandoned due to rain and no play possible on third day of play before lunch session.
