Rishabh Pant remained a cable at the Adelaide Oval much to the amusement of the listeners and the commentators throughout the opening session on the day of the opening Test between Australia and India. However, Australia’s Pat Cummins may have perspectives on that with Pant ongoing to chat from behind the stumps as R Ashwin went over without conceding a run. Australia is currently chasing 323 runs to win in the opening Test against India.
This was recorded on the stump mike and the chatter left commentators so amused they chose to remain silent during the finished. The incident happened in the 75th over of the match when Cummins had just come to bat and was around zero.
Disappointingly for India and Pant, Cummins didn’t fall for this. Cummins remained solid in defense and moved into the lunch break unbeaten on 5 alongside captain Tim Paine in the other end on 40. After the very first session, Australia still needs 137 runs to win with four wickets in hand.
At the 67th over, Paine survived an opportunity when Pant technique let his opportunity go begging to be disregarded for 7. While a difficult chance, the Mohammed Shami wasn’t pleased by Pant’s attempt at choosing the catch. The short ball encouraged Paine into opting for the swiveled to glove it.
India is looking to make history in Adelaide where a win would indicate that India could have won the first Test of the series in Australia.
