The Boxing Day Test at the historic MCG. And India playing Australia. If there is one country that gives Australia any competition whatsoever, despite rankings, it is India. And India haven’t done too badly for itself on the first day.
At 337 for 9, the Aussies find themselves in a rare situation. So complete has been their domination of the game that before this test, Gilchrist had not batted on the first day of a test for more than a year! If it was Ganguly in the first test of the last tour, it is Kumble this time with his first day 5-wicket haul.
Australia are not even on the back-foot, let alone being down. But they are in unfamiliar territories. A position they haven’t really been in for a long time.
Seems like we have an interesting second day’s play tomorrow!
