Sanjay Bangar Slams Australian media

During the Australia tour of India 2023, 4 Tests and 3 ODI matches will be played between February 9 to March 22.

The first Test of the 4-match test series is scheduled to begin on February 9 at Nagpur. Winning the toss, Australia choose to bat first where Indian skipper Rohit Sharma too expressed that he would also choose to bat if the toss went in their favour.

Mohammed Shami opened the bowling attack where David Warner and Usman Khawaja opened the Australian inning. In the second over, Siraj dismissed Khawaja in the very first delivery and draws the first blood for the Australian batting unit.

The early dismissal took the Indian team to fly high in joy. Apart from the players, Indian head coach Rahul Dravid too expressed his joy from the dressing room.

Siraj trapped Khawaja with an in-swinging delivery and although the on-field umpire was not convinced at first, a timely review from skipper Rohit Sharma earned India an early wicket in the encounter.

On the decision, Australian media Fox Cricket shared its disappointment and questioned the ball tracker.

Replying to it and other reports that targetted the Nagpur pitch and India players, Bangar said that the Australian media could not digest the fact that India dominated on Day 1 of the first Test.

“Well I am not on Twitter. But in the India-Australia series you have to be in touch with what is happening around the globe. Some media from Australia saying that the ball tracker (is) broken and they are not happy with the DRS. And now that’s crying, all these. They can’t digest the fact that the Indian team has dominated on Day 1,” said Bangar during an interaction on Star Sports.

Hours before the Day 2 stumps, India scored 249 runs for 7 wickets loss where R Jadeja and Axar Patel stands in the crease while India leads by 80 runs.
