The India vs Australia 2nd test match of the Border Gavaskar series 2023 is currently underway at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi. Australia is batting first after winning the toss in the 2nd test match. Lunch has been taken on day 1 of the 2nd test and Australia scored 94 runs for the loss of 3 wickets. It would have been Australia’s session hadn’t Ashwin removed Labuschagne and Smith in the 4th and 6th deliveries of the 23rd over of the innings. Usman Khawaja is batting unbeaten on 50 while Travis Head is giving him company on 1.
Indian seamers Mohammad Shami and Mohammad Siraj were brilliant in the first hour and a half of the test match. Both the seamers tested the Aussie openers with their line and length variations. Warner and Khawaja were watchful and also copped some blows from the Indian seamers. Khawaja looked solid compared to Warner and the duo put on a 50-run stand.
Shami was brought for a short spell and he removed warner with a beauty in his very first over of the 2nd spell. After that, Labuschagne and Khawaja batted for 44 deliveries and put on 41 runs. Ashwin’s double-wicket over tilted the session towards India.
