Despite the fact that Team India has lost six of their last eight overseas Tests this year, the world’s No.1 Test side was expected to do well in the Test series in Australia that started on Thursday. The supporters were even more optimistic since the hosts do not have two big names in their line-up – Steve Smith and David Warner – who are serving bans. Yet, Virat Kohli and his men had a disastrous start to the series as they were reduced to 85/5 on Day 1 of the Adelaide Test and were struggling to save the day but eventually went on to make 250/9 with the help of Cheteshwar Pujara’s century.

KL Rahul failed again

The opening pair of KL Rahul and Murali Vijay failed to deliver again and so did Kohli who got out for three. The deputy skipper Ajinkya Rahane fell for 13 while Rohit Sharma’s counter-attacking knock lasted only for 61 balls in which he scored 37. Wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant got dismissed for 25 and it was all left on Pujara to carry the innings on his shoulders along with the tail-enders. The right-hand batsman hit a century and built crucial partnerships with Pant, R Ashwin and Ishant Sharma for the 6th, 7th and 8th wicket because of which India managed to reach 250. 

Veteran Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh has been known for his rivalries with Aussies and on Thursday morning posted a tweet which many linked with the struggle of Kohli’s men Down Under.

The 38-year-old said in a tweet that though expecting and trusting are not wrong, it is important to know whom to trust and expect from. The ‘Good Morning’ tweet came at a time when the Adelaide Test was already on and the fans did not take time to sense what the cricketer was actually implying.

The Indian batsmen were got dismissed playing some loose shots against the Australian fast bowlers who took six of the nine wickets India have lost so far and conceded runs at a miserly rate. For a team which was expected to deliver against what was perceived to be a weak Australian side in decades, the turnout on the 22 yards was definitely disappointing. Here are some of the reactions Harbhajan gt on his tweet:
