Meanwhile, in the absence of Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc. Indian hitters completely crush the Australian quicks in the first innings. Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer both score centuries to demolish the opposing team, while Suryakumar Yadav hit 72* runs off 37 deliveries to help India score 399 runs. The Australian bowlers appeared befuddled in the middle as the Indore surface favored the hitters.
Suryakumar was also under pressure, in addition to Ashwin. He was heavily chastised for being selected for the World Cup despite failing to perform in ODIs.
