Todd Murphy took 7 wickets in debut test
Jason Krejza took 12 wickets in his debut match
New Delhi. Australia’s off-spinner Todd Murphy’s Test career could not have started better than this. Due to being dismissed on a low score in the first innings, the shoulders of the Australian players were bowed, but Todd Murphy rekindled the enthusiasm in the whole team with his charismatic bowling. Although, Murphy could not save the team from a humiliating defeat, but he managed to take more than 5 wickets in the debut test itself. Murphy hunted 7 batters of Team India in the match. Even biggies like Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja failed to read Todd Murphy’s deliveries.
The combination of Nagpur and Australia’s off-spinner’s debut test can pose a threat to Todd Murphy’s career. Actually, in 2008, Australia’s right-arm off-spinner Jason Krejza also made his debut on the ground of Vidarbha Cricket Association. In the match, Kreja took 8 wickets in the first innings and 4 wickets in the second innings. In that match too, Australia had to face a big defeat by 172 runs. After this match, Jason Krejza played only one more test which was against South Africa. His test career ended after only 2 matches. Krejza has registered 13 wickets in the name test format, of which 12 are against India.
