  1. The second day of the ongoing Test against India, started poorly for Australia as Matt Renshaw hurt his knee and was unable to play. He was then taken to the hospital for scanning. The batsman felt the injury but went through the warm-ups after making a golden duck after controversially replacing Travis Head in the lineup. When play began, he was still icing the injury and was replaced on the field by Ashton Agar.

Matt Renshaw has been struggling in recent times. He was called back to the side for the Sydney Test, and despite exhibiting covid symptoms in the moments before the toss and the beginning of the first day’s play, he was kept apart from his teammates for the first few days.

After making the shocking decision to bench the batsman of the summer, Travis Head, for the opening Test in Nagpur, Australia’s cricket selection committee is still under fire. Australia has had a difficult Test thus far, and that hasn’t changed with the news that batter Matt Renshaw is out due to injury. Matt Renshaw, who was dismissed for a golden duck yesterday, has been replaced by Ashton Agar.

Matt Renshaw was hurt during warm-ups, according to commentator Mark Waugh, while Cricinfo claimed he “felt slight soreness in his right knee this morning and is icing it as a precaution, I think he might have injured something behind his knee,” Waugh said.

“Hopefully it’s not a major injury for Renshaw. He potentially could have bowled a few overs as well… I hear that he’s been taken to the hospital for precautionary scans or X-rays. That’s the last thing Australia needs,” Mark Waugh added.

The day belonged to the Indian bowlers, highlighted by comeback kid Ravindra Jadeja. He finished with 5 for 57, while off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin added three wickets to help India knock Australia out for 177 after they chose to bat first.
