On Day 4, India’s inexperienced bowling attack seized the opportunity and knocked out Australia for 294 points in their second inning. Mohammed Siraj continued to impress in the current streak as he cashed his first five-iron in tryout cricket. The right arm pacemaker fired Josh Hazlewood to complete his five-wicket run. In his early days, Shardul Thakur also made some good company for Siraj as he won four wickets in the second round. It was Thakur who grabbed the third man as Siraj finished his transport from five wickets.
Reacting to his 5-iron, Siraj said playing India A and the national level has helped him gain confidence. “It’s not a question of seniority. Whatever cricket I have played for India A or at the national level has helped me gain a lot of confidence. Jassi bhai (Jasprit Bumrah) m “missed in that game. He wasn’t there. I was called the senior bowler. So I tried to take responsibility,” he said after the game.
In the context of the match, India needs 324 points to win the competition in the final test. Rohit Sharma (4 *) and Shubman Gill (0) were in the crease when play had to be stopped due to rain. Both teams have won one match each so far and the fate of the series will be decided on Day 5.
