Shubman Gill has just hit a fantastic six! Lyon sent a tossed up delivery, but Gill was undaunted as he danced down the track and launched the ball over long-on. He showed great skill in getting under the ball and smashing it over the fence.
It’s clear that he wasn’t holding back in the last over of the day. This is how Gill does things. In fact, the ball got stuck in the sight-screen. There’s a massive delay on the field! It seems the ball is playing a game of hide and seek, perhaps trying to avoid getting bashed by Gill again?
With only four balls left in the day’s play, this delay is taking a long time. Finally, the ball has been retrieved and sent back onto the field, much to the delight of the spectators and organizers who cheered loudly as it was returned.
India remained unharmed despite facing the full brunt of a 480-run onslaught, ending day 2 with a score of 36. Rohit and Gill appeared calm and composed as the pitch continued to favor the batsmen. Earlier, Khawaja scored an impressive 180, while Green notched up a century to keep Australia firmly in control.
Ashwin tried to slow the run-rate with his 6-wicket haul, but it was not enough to prevent significant damage. Even Lyon and Murphy showed great determination while batting on the docile surface, with Ashwin finally ending their resistance. India faces a daunting task on day 3, hoping that the wicket remains favorable for batting.
