Expectedly the Aussie spinner is earning praises from all over the world. The Bangladesh cricket team coach Chandika Hathurusingha also joined to congratulate the Aussie cricketer.
He wished him and appreciated his performance in Pune with a tweet. The Sri Lankan tweeted, “Congratulations Steve O’Keefe, excellent performance, enjoy tonight mate!”
Earlier, Virat Kohli’s side started the home series against Australia as clear favorites. Therefore it was a total disaster for the hosts what had happened in first test at Pune.
India were trapped in their own backyard by their strength of spin. Steve O’Keefe almost single handedly won the match for Australia getting 12 wickets out of 20 Indian wickets in Pune which also has stopped India’s winning streak after remaining unbeaten in 19 previous matches. The Aussies now have the chance to win the series. They will play three more matches during the series.
