The first day of the series opener of the four-match Test series between India and Australia at the renowned Adelaide Oval turned out to be an exciting one, despite too many runs not being scored. At one point in time, the hosts got Virat Kohli and Co by the scruff of their necks, having reduced them to 41/4 in the 21st over. The likes of Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins wreaked some serious havoc.

Runs were hard to come by after visiting team winning the toss and elected to bat first. A few loose strokes from some of their star batsmen got them in a rabbit hole. While the likes of Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli were dismissed playing some loose shots, the likes of Rishabh Pant and Rohit Sharma also got dismissed after getting decent starts in the tough conditions.

Nevertheless, Pujara was the one who took the responsibility and scored 123 runs from 246 balls to drag his team out of the precarious position. His knock was laced with seven boundaries and two sixes as well. After losing their first five wickets at a meager score of 86, India ended their day on 250/9. However, they would’ve been happy had Pujara managed to stay not out until the close of play.

In the meantime, amidst some riveting cricket, the match also had some flavor of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) associated with it. Post the day’s play, Matt Hardy, an American professional wrestler, graced his presence in the studio of Sony. A man known for setting the ring on fire with his fiery moves, Hardy was also sharing his insightful thoughts on cricket.

Even Murali Kartik, the presenter, was seen giving him some tips on how to play cricket. Matt’s younger brother Jeff Hardy is also one of the popular WWE wrestlers. The elder of the Hardy’s has won a number of titles, especially in the tag-team category. Even as a single wrestler, he is a three-time world champion. Meanwhile, supporters were bemused by Hardy’s presence and they trolled Sony hilariously.
