Watch: Ishant Sharma Destroys Aaron Finch’s Stumps To Give India Solid Start

Ishant Sharma gave India the perfect start with the ball in the ongoing first Test against Australia in Adelaide.

Just like the opening day of the game, India did not start a great start with the bat on day two either. Resuming the day on 250 for 9, India could not add a single run to the overnight score before Josh Hazlewood sent back Mohammed Shami. But unlike the batsmen, the bowlers gave India a flying start.

In the very first over of the innings, veteran Ishant Sharma cleaned up Aaron Finch with an absolute beauty to give India the much-needed early breakthrough. Finch went for the drive very early in the innings and ended up paying a hefty price. Ishant bowled a fuller delivery which nipped back into Finch. In return, the Australia opener went for a full drive without covering the line of the ball. Consequently, he got an inside edge before the ball set the off and middle-stump cart-wheeling.

Here is a clip of that wicket from Ishant Sharma:

Coming to the game, India recovered from a disastrous start to post a respectable 250. India’s top-order failed to get going on day one as Australia pacers wreaked havoc. In fact, the Indian batsmen should blame themselves as they ended up playing poor shots to throw away their wickets. At one stage, India were reeling at 41 for 4. At that stage even a score of 150 was looking like a distant dream.

However, Cheteshwar Pujara held firm from one end and scored a stunning ton to guide India to a good total. The right-handed batsman scored 123 before being run out.
