India captain Rohit Sharma looked frustrated during Day 1 of the World Test Championship (WTC) Final match against Australia. As India were looking to break the partnership between Steve Smith and Travis Head, Sharma handed the ball to Ravindra Jadeja but the move did not work. Meanwhile, the Indian captain looked frustrated at his teammates and even abused Cheteshwar Pujara.
Sharma looked irritated at the players for not following what he said. As Rohit approached Jadeja to discuss the field setting, he was heard cursing at his teammates. “Kya yar tum log beh****,” Sharma yelled at his mates. Rohit Sharma then took aim at Cheteshwar Pujara and yelled at him. “Pujji yar kya tum log…,” Rohit Sharma was heard saying.
Nevertheless, the frustration kept mounting on India and Rohit Sharma as Head and Smith went on to put a mammoth 251-run partnership on Day 1. Australia eventually ended Day 1 of the WTC Final with 327/3. The misery finally ended when Mohammed Siraj dismissed Travis Head in the first session of Day 2. But the damage was done till then. Head and Smith had added 285 runs for the fourth wicket.
Shardul Thakur and Mohammed Siraj do it again for India
While Mohammed Siraj got Head, Shardul Thakur dismissed Steve Smith but not before the Australian batter scored his 31st hundred. Smith was dismissed for 121 as the batter played on a good-length delivery from Thakur. Meanwhile, Mohammed Shami also chipped in with the important wicket of Cameron Green. The veteran pacer got Green caught at second slip.
The seventh wicket came in the form of Mitchell Starc who was run out by Axar Patel. Coming onto the field as a substitute, Patel showed great agility to quickly pick up the ball and hit the stumps as Starc played a drive at mid-off. With the help of this runout, India managed four wickets in the first session of Day 2 at the expense of 95 runs.
