'Sarfaraz Khan>SKY,' Fans Slam Management for Picking Suryakumar Yadav in India vs Australia 1st Test Source: Twitter

Team India's star batter, Suryakumar Yadav made his Test debut against Australia in Nagpur on Thursday (February 9). The number 1 T20I batter got the chance to prove himself in red-ball cricket as well after smashing records in the white-ball format for India. However, his first knock was something he and his fans would quickly like to forget as Surya got dismissed by Nathon Lyon for just 8 runs.

Fans on social media were not impressed with the team management selecting Surya and Cheteshwar Pujara for the first two Tests against Australia.

Coming to the match, Jadeja, who claimed 5-47 to help India dismiss Australia for 177 in their first innings, and Axar Patel took over from there on, adding 81 runs for the unfinished eighth-wicket partnership as they propelled India past the 300-run mark. Jadeja completed his half-century off 114 balls, hitting seven boundaries. Patel achieved the milestone off 94 balls and struck eight fours.

It was an engrossing and enthralling day as both sides tried to take control of the proceedings. Every time India tried to press home the advantage, Australia claimed a wicket or two to peg them back. Debutant Todd Murphy (5-82) claimed his maiden five-wicket haul in his debut Test and troubled the Indian batters throughout the day. The rookie off-spinner bowled a fine line and length at the right pace. However, Australia will rue the five chances they dropped in the Indian innings. (With IANS inputs)
