Top two teams India and Australia, who finished as No. 2 and 1 respectively in the points table, are locking horns in the all-important World Test Championship Final 2021-23. After winning the toss, Rohit Sharma-led Team India opted to bowl first. While the Men in Blue drew the first blood in the second over of the day, the second came late in the first session of Day.
It was long before Mohammed Shami scalped the third for India and he dismissed Marnus Labuschagne with a peach delivery, sending the off stump flying. After these three wickets, the Indian bowling attack failed to get hold of any wicket with Travis Head scoring his Test century and vice-captain reaching his half-century off 144 deliveries.
This led to fans lashing out at the Indian bowling attack as they looked to stop fighting in the match in the opening day itself. Although they did had their chances to put a stop at the Australian attack but failed considerably, leaking runs at extensive rate.
While a few fans called this bowling attack of India as a poor one, a few others added that if Ashwin was a part of the XI, he would have been questioned for a place.
