What a bowling spell it was! Nathan Lyon just broke the dream of all Indian cricket fans. When each and everyone was waiting to enjoy the batting innings of India, just on that time Nathan Lyon kept showing his bowling charisma and took eight wickets. It was such a tremendous achievement for any Aussie player to get eight wickets in the first Innings against India in their homeland. As an Aussie bowler, Lyon can feel proud of himself because of this great achievement. He took all the benefits of Bengaluru crease and made the record.
He bowled as he was expecting. It is the best bowling figure in one innings for any Aussie test cricket player. Lokesh Rahul scored the highest run in India’s 1st innings. He played very well and helped his team to get a marginal total in the very first innings of the 2nd test match. Rahul stayed in the wicket for a long time. He took his time and gave his best. After playing 205 balls, he scored 90 runs. But Nathan Lyon didn’t let him play anymore. He took Rahul’s valuable wicket. His innings saved India from massive batting collapse.
After his innings, the second highest individual score was only 26, and Karun Nair added those runs on the scoreboard. Pujara and Rahane scored 17 runs each; it was the third highest score. Australian Bowlers just broke full batting line up of India. Aussie players are showing their best performance in India.
Their team combination and playing style are giving them the best result. After defeating India in the first test match, it was predictable that India will come back strongly, but Aussie players didn’t let them do that. In the first day, India lost their all wickets and scored only 189 runs. In the day one Australia started their first innings as well, and they added 40 runs from 16 overs without losing any wicket.
