IND vs AUS 2nd Test: Shami strikes first wicket for team India

Mohammed Shami struck first wicket for the blues as David Warner walks back with just 15 runs in bag.

A Mohammed Shami delivery earlier in the match struck David Warner in the back pad. Warner chose to go upstairs after the umpire raised his finger in response to an LBW appeal. Rightfully so, as the batter was spared because the ball had touched Warner’s willow before striking the plate.


Shami ultimately had the last laugh after wicket keeper KS Bharat took a spectacular catch to send off Warner.

The home team entered the match as the clear favourites because they had easily won the first game by an innings and 132 runs. For the match, India has switched out Suryakumar Yadav for Shreyas Iyer, and Australia has given left-arm orthodox Matthew Kuhnemann his Test debut. The Delhi game, on the other hand, marks Cheteshwar Pujara’s 100th Test, an accomplishment accomplished after 13 years.
