The fourth and final Test match of the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy has seen the visitors completely dominate proceedings at the Narendra Modi Stadium. While the batters have been enjoying the time in the middle, there has been nothing on offer for the bowlers.
Australia resumed their batting innings on Day 2 with a score of 255/4. They haven’t lost a single wicket on Day 2 and Usman Khawaja, who has already completed his century, and Cameron Green, having scored a half-century have looked very strong.
In the meantime, during the drinks break in the first session on Day 2, the Indian players were served fruits on a plate on the field. While it is not uncommon for players to eat a banana as it is easy to eat on the go, eating watermelon on a plate is unheard of.
As the images surfaced online, Twitter was flooded with fans criticising the Indian team and the players. While the players could have been eating watermelon to tackle the heat, fans trashed them for their laid-back attitude in the match.
“Good to see some juice on the field since none on the pitch,” a user wrote. “Drinks and fruits out on the field for players. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma to Support staff: Khwaja ka wicket bhi mil jata to acha hota,” another user wrote.
As for the match, Unlike the previous matches in the series, the Ahmedabad wicket appeared to be much better to bat on, and Steve Smith decided to bat first after winning the toss. This proved to be the correct decision, as they batted brilliantly.
Usman Khawaja kept his cool and put pressure on India as he formed an important partnership with the captain. After that, Khawaja and Green added 85 runs for the fifth wicket and remained unbeaten at the end of Day 1. The opening batter went on to hit his maiden century against India in the final over of the day, becoming the first Australian to do so in India in eight years.
Here is how Twitter reacted to the Indian team

Markets are red today. Where is India losing more runs – On the Adani end or Reliance end?
