India vs Australia: In the first TEST match against Australia, India were bowled out for 105 and 107 in the both innings respectively. That was a massive win by Australian with 333 runs against ICC’s No.1 Test team.
Australia’s inexperienced left-hand spinner Steve O’Keefe walked over the India’s batsman with his roar. That was the first defeat for Team India at home since 2012.
Captain Kohli couldn’t forget his defeat for a long time. Infect the visitor team couldn’t think that they can do this kind of damage in the first Test match.
Australia’s former Wicket-keeper said that Virat Kohli’s team is strong enough to not require rank turners to win.

Former wicket-keeper said about Australian team after winning the first Test against India, “Looking at the two teams before the Test, it was unexpected, and certainly not in three days. My thoughts were that Renshaw (Matt) and Handscomb (Peter) did not have any previous experience, but they prepared very well and had the best of the condition on a wicket which was not up to the standard.”

“All in all, they did well to get that win, and it is exciting for the rest of the series. India still plays well in these conditions and they will be cursing. They will be ready to strike back,” he added.
“McGrath always used to say 5-0, 4-0, 3-0 (for Australia) and I was happy to leave that to him. I never liked to predict results but those were not the only ones to write Australia off. Many others too did that but the team worked hard for the success. They have got off to a perfect start and the challenge is to win the game in Bangalore,” he said.
Gilchrist explained, “Virat, as I have said, is undoubtedly the world class player, a proven performer. But he can’t do business every single time. So there is a challenge for the rest of the batting group to find a way to shine on the odd times when Virat has not. Ravi Ashwin’s record speaks for itself. But the Australian batsmen seem to have a plan for him. He has a challenge too.”
