Shankar may have the big shots but he is no Pant, must learn to keep the strike rate up by hitting more along the ground just like his captain does.#AusvIndiaSanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) March 13, 2019Vijay Shankar scored 21-ball 16 before being tempted by well-tossed up ball from Adam Zampa. Vijay had hit a six on the just the previous delivery but tried to lift the ball again, only to find Usman Khawaja in the deep.India had got off to a terrible start Shikhar Dhawan (12) being dismissed by Pat Cummins in the fifth over of the innings. With the score on 15/1, Virat Kohli joined Rohit at the crease.advertisementThe duo tried to settle the early nerves and all looked fine till Marcus Stoinis dismissed Kohli (20) against the run of play. Rishabh Pant was promoted to the number four position, and Nathan Lyon ensured that this experiment also failed for India as he walked back for 16, caught at first slip by Ashton Turner.Rohit (given a life on 51 and 53 off Zampa’s bowling) was stumped by Alex Carey in the 27th over, and the fall of Vijay soon after, it looked like the start of the end of the India chase.But Kedar Jadhav (44) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (46) had other plans as they looked to take India home putting up 91-run stand. With 96 needed off the last 10 overs, they mixed caution with aggression and stretched the game towards the death overs.Just when it looked like India would scamper home, Bhuvneshwar was sent back by Cummins. With Kedar dismissed off the first ball of the very next over by Richardson, it was curtains.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
