The Indian team is in trouble in the Sydney Test. Australian has set the target of 407 runs in front of the visitors with the heroics of Marnus Labuschagne, Steven Smith, and Chris Green.
In the last innings when the Indian team came out to bat then the openers gave a good start with 71 run opening partnership. Rohit Sharma went on scoring a half-century and by the end of the day, India lost two wickets at 98 runs.
“It is very important that we play a good first session tomorrow,” he said in the presser. “A very ideal and a good first session will be to not lose a wicket. And these two gentlemen have proven through their careers about how good they are in this format of the game and how important they are. Ajinkya got a century at MCG. Puji (Pujara) got a fifty in the first innings. We are all hopeful that they will put a good performance,” he added.
“Sometimes, when you play to the merit of the ball. You put yourself in a situation where in the last session, where you can take a dash at it. You don’t go in the morning and say ‘chalo, hum log 300 bana lenge’. Last time, when we got it at Adelaide (2014), everybody got off to a good start and the game paced that way and we did believe that the score was in our range. Tomorrow also, the batsmen walking in will believe they can do it. That belief is very important when you walk out to the park tomorrow morning.”
The Indian team will miss the likes of Ravindra Jadeja as the all-rounder will not come bat in the second innings for the Indian team after suffering an injury.
