India’s cricket team had a successful match, defeating Australia by an innings and 132 runs in Nagpur. This victory puts them ahead 1-0 in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023. India’s bowling attack was dominant, with Ravichandran Ashwin taking five wickets and Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami each grabbing a couple.
In the first innings, India scored 400 runs, in response to Australia’s 177, giving them a 223-run lead. However, in their second attempt, Australia was only able to score 91 runs, leading to their defeat.
Rohit Sharma’s angry outburst during the match was a topic of discussion on social media. During a crucial stage of the game, Australia were 52/4 and off the next ball, Ravichandran Ashwin appealed for an LBW dismissal of Peter Handscomb.
However, the umpire ruled it not out and the Indian team went for a review. During the DRS, the broadcaster focused on Rohit to catch his reaction, which left the Indian captain frustrated. In an angry outburst, Rohit seemed to direct the broadcasters to show the replay of the LBW decision reviewed, instead of his face.
A video of his bemusing and angry reaction quickly went viral on social media, attracting widespread attention and discussion. Despite the incident, India went on to win the match convincingly, with Rohit leading the team to victory.
Jadeja was named Player of the Match due to his excellent all-round performance. He took seven wickets in the match and also scored a half-century. In India’s first innings, he and Axar stitched together a crucial 88-run partnership for the eighth wicket, putting India in a strong position. The 223-run lead proved to be too much for Australia to overcome.
