BGT 2023, IND vs AUS 3rd Test Live: Watch - Virat Kohli left in splits after Umesh Yadav smashes gigantic six against Todd Murphy
Virat Kohli reacts after witnessing Umesh Yadav smashing sixes against the Australia spinners in the ongoing 3rd Test at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore. Having a look at the game, Rohit Sharma the skipper of India, opted to bat first after winning the toss.
Batting first, the visitors bowled out India for a total of 109 runs. Virat Kohli scored the highest for India by putting up 22 runs while Umesh Yadav showed some good shots by coming down the order.
Matthew Kuhnemann scalped 5 wickets for his side. After having a good session with the ball, it's time for the Australian batters to show their ability with the bat.
Usman Khawaja played well at the top order, scoring 60 runs before being dismissed by Ravindra Jadeja. The top 2 batters of Australia, Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith had to walk back to the dressing room after being dismissed by Ravindra Jadeja for 31 and 26 runs respectively.
It is not rocket science: Usman Khawaja
Currently, at the end of the 1st Day, Australia scored 156 runs losing 4 wickets and has a lead of 47 runs on the board. "I am not sure to be honest (what I did differently). I executed my plans, tried to score when I saw a scoring opportunity and respected the good ball.
It is not rocket science, it was good to get a partnership with Marnus, felt like the start was the toughest time to bat with the new ball being inconsistent but it was nice to get the partnership. It is not an easy wicket out there," Usman Khawaja was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
"It is hard to say (if the pitch changed), it was spinning in the morning and spinning in the afternoon, it is a spin friendly wicket. We will know more tomorrow but I don't expect it to get any better.
I sweep on length most times, line sometimes when the offspinner goes down leg and I used the sweep more intermittently. I did the same thing last week too and it is good to have in your arsenal. The plan hasn't changed but it has been dictated by the pitch and how the bowlers are bowling at you," he added.
