Match Review

     On Thursday, February 9, at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Nagpur, India and Australia played in the 1st Test, day 1 match of the Australia tour of India, 2023.

     After India bowled out Australia for 177 runs on Thursday, Rohit Sharma took the lead with an unbeaten 56. Before KL Rahul was bowled for 20 runs by Todd Murphy, Rohit and Rahul had put up 76 runs for the first wicket.
