India vs Australia 2nd Test Day 1 Highlights Today 4 March 2017
Watch India vs Australia cricket highlights today on 4-3-2017. IND vs AUS highlights of the day 1 of second Test played at Bangalore. India always prefers wickets that help spinners because not only they have some best spin magincians among their ranks but also teams outside Asia simply can’t play against spin with confidence. However in previous Test, India was trapped in its own net. Australian bowling devastated the hosts’ batting in both the innings. Steve O’Keefe, from Australia, was the basic reason that India started this series with a 0-1 loss.
“The pressure was off us, wasn’t it? Everyone wrote us off and expected India to win 4-0. That can’t happen anymore.” Never a truer word was spoken than those from Smith after the Pune Test. But if it was true that the pressure was off Australia in that match, it is no longer the case in Bengaluru, where the expectations on Australia will be high. Not only did they beat India in Pune, they dominated in all aspects of the game. They more than doubled India’s total in each innings, the spinners were more effective, their catching was sharper, even their use of the DRS was more assured.
Pressure was on Kohli’s mind after the match, too. “How badly we batted in the first innings is the main reason why we couldn’t get back into the game,” he said. “We put ourselves under a lot of pressure.” The intensity will only increase in Bengaluru, where Australia are in the unexpected position of being able to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy by the halfway point of the series. Kohli’s men must find a way to turn around their fortunes quickly, or else an ignominious fate awaits them.
