For a change, the fourth Test match between Australia and India has been challenging for the bowlers. Australia kept India out on the field for the majority of the first two days of the fourth Test in Ahmedabad, when the previous three matches in the series were all favourable to spinners and concluded in two and a half days. The visitors eventually ran out of innings for a massive 480, and India finished the day on 36/0.
The great partnership between Usman Khawaja and Cameron Green helped Australia’s innings. Both players made hundreds, their firsts against India, and Cameron Green, a 23-year-old all-rounder, made his Test cricket debut. Green scored 114 points off 170 shots, whereas Khawaja lost after tallying 180 points off an incredible 422 shots. Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who had dismissed Green and broken the mammoth stand, said the all-high rounder’s price at the 2023 Indian Premier League auction is evidence of how well-regarded he is in Indian cricket circles.
