The new pitch, the new venue, few changes, and same result. Yes, we are talking about India, the one who won the toss and with the will behind the decision to bat first, embarrassed themselves yet again. Unfortunately for them, it was not Steve O’Keefe, rather Nathan Lyon, who picked up his best career figures of 8-50 on day one of the Bengaluru Test.

The start, which was submissive compared to the one in Pune, Indian batting order was knelled down by the spin wizard Lyon with his personal best of 8/50, who four years back, picked up his then best figures of seven for 94 in Delhi against the same side.

KL Rahul, India’s only silverware in the innings stood for 205 balls and scored an impressive looking 90. Captain Virat Kohli made a mockery of himself yet again, after he, for the second successive time left a delivery and paid the price of it. Social media didn’t spare him either.

Among the ten wickets felt, nine went in spinners’ kitty with the majority in Lyon’s share and just one in O’Keefe’s. On what was another dream day for Australia, there were few talking points.

Sportzwiki brings you four of them.
