AUSTRALIA’S TOUR OF INDIA: DHONI’S MAIDEN DOUBLE TON

India scored a convincing 8-wicket win over Australia in the first test match of the four-match India-Australia test series being held in the country. It is evident from the first match that India has once again found its groove after a long time and the confidence reflects in their game. The scorecard speaks volumes about it. Playing test match against Australia is never easy. Be it home or abroad India has always faced a tough time against the Aussies. Batting first, Australia posed a decent total of 380 in first innings with skipper Michael Clarke hitting a ton along with Henriques contributing with a decent 68 to the overall total.

In reply, India had a shaky start with 2 wickets going down early but Pujara and Sachin Tendulkar stabilized the innings. Virat Kohli and M.S.Dhoni then capitalized on this in quite a composed fashion. It was the batting partnership of the these two players which was highlight of the first innings. Kohli scored an elegant 107 while the Indian captain achieved a thunderous feat of reaching a double ton, the first in his career. In the end, India managed to put up a mammoth score of 572. Then came the show of the Indian spinners Ashwin and Jadeja, who restricted Australia to 241 thereby setting up the platform for the first win in the test series.

Now with a defeat behind them, it is expected that the Aussies will be going all out to play in full form aiming for a victory this time so that their chances of saving the series remains intact. As far as the Indian side is concerned, they simply will not allow themselves to lose out on the winning streak and will try to play with same elegance to raise the scorecard to 2-0.

This game holds immense thrill where two of the world’s best teams compete against each other for their reputation and fans are going to witness pure finesse of the game, watching these two teams come together for the bloody tussle. The India-Australia series is one series every ardent cricket fan looks forward to and by the look of things it is definitely not going to be easy for the Indian team. The second test match between India and Australia will be played on 2nd March at Rajiv Gandhi International stadium, Hyderabad.
