Fans Praise Shardul Thakur’s Signature
The 29-year-old had made his Test debut in October 2018 against the West Indies in Hyderabad. However, he was forced to leave the field after bowling just 10 deliveries on the opening day due to a groin strain.
Shardul made his presence felt with both bat and ball when handed an opportunity in the final Test at The Gabba.
The all-rounder stitched a partnership of 123 runs alongside Washington Sundar in the first innings after India were reduced to 186 for 6 in response to Australia’s 369.
The partnership helped the visitors reduce the first-innings deficit down to under 50 as India made 336 in the first innings. Shardul also picked seven wickets in the match.
Look at Shardul’s damn
