INDvsAUS Day4 2nd Test odds
Due credit has been given to Ajinkya Rahane whose Captaincy techniques have been earning laurels in the sub continent. The way he is building up pressure on the aussies team is top notch. Bringing spinner to bowl for Steve smith with a great plan even while fast bowlers are bowling at their best and reducing the pressure of debut bowler to bowl at the greats of the game like Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne. How good has been Ravi Ashwin and Ravi Jadeja in this match.
Gem of an innings from Rahane where other batsmen struggled to make 50, he stood up and got a match turning century on a bowler favoring wicket. Coming to Jadeja, he has been the no.1 allrounder since 2016, his stats and his consistent performances across formats shows so. He is a matured player now who keeps the price on the wicket. He has been averaging 56 since 2018 for India. Coming to bowling Bumrah should be given due credit for the way he has shouldered the responsibility in absence of Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Our Analysis: India wins in 1st session Day 4
Tomorrow in the first session, aussies will start with lead of 2 runs. If Bumrah or Ashwin can capitalize on early wickets in the first hour or two. India might hold Australia for lead not more than 30. It would be a great opportunity for India to conquer the Aussie soil in the Melbourne test in the morning session itself. We need a boom boom show from Bumrah to seal off the match as early as possible. It would be more difficult to India if Aussies lower order manage to score a lead of 120 to 150.
It will be a tough ask for India batsmen to chase down. It might be a sweet revenge for Aussies when they got all out India in 1st test match for 36 and India might need around 30-40 to chase down in second innings for victory. It might be the sight at the end of 15 overs in the morning as per our prediction.
