Ravi Bishnoi’s early strike stuns Australia
India’s start was nothing short of spectacular, with young spinner Ravi Bishnoi delivering a masterclass in the fifth over. Bishnoi outfoxed Aussie opener Matthew Short with a deceptive delivery, commonly known as a ‘wrong ‘un.’
Short, attempting to capitalize on the spin, aimed to go over mid-wicket, but Bishnoi’s delivery held its line, crashing into the off-stump. The dismissal left the Australian camp in awe and set the tone for a challenging innings.
