The second test between India and Australia will start in Delhi.
Australia did not give Travis Head a chance in the Nagpur Test.
New Delhi. The second Test between India and Australia has started. The visiting team has won the toss and decided to bat first. If you look at the figures, India’s victory in Delhi is sure. But taking a team like Australia lightly can be a huge burden for India. However, in the first Test, Team India easily defeated the guests. But now the Kangaroo team has learned from the mistakes made in Nagpur.
After the defeat in the first Test, the Australian media was seen criticizing the players of their own team. Questions were raised on the performance of David Warner and Nathan Lyon. The visiting team had made some mistakes in the Nagpur Test, for which they had to bear the brunt. The Indian team has also geared up. But there is no doubt that Kangaroo will not repeat that mistake in Delhi. Former Indian veteran Akash Chopra had also told before the match about two or three changes in the playing-11, referring to Australia’s mistakes. His prediction turned out to be correct to a large extent.
Travis Head will return – Aakash Chopra
Australia dropped star batsman Travis Head from the first test despite his good form. Akash Chopra said about this, ‘I think Australia will make 2-3 changes in the playing 11. Cameron Green is available for selection, so I think he will come back. If Australia realizes the mistake of not feeding Travis Head after the first test, then Head can be included in the playing 11. Ashton Agar can also play.
The star all-rounder had decided to quit cricket, the season was ruined by a bike accident, then how did he make a U-turn?
