For India, the new opening pair Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill provided the expected start. The duo added 70 runs for the first wicket. This is the first 50 plus runs partnership for the first wicket in the last 14 innings for India.

Meanwhile, Australian player Marnus Labuschagne was seen involving in some funny conversations with the Indian opening pair. “This is a catch. A Catch here,” Labuschagne exclaimed when Rohit was on strike. “What did you do in quarantine,” he continued to ask Rohit. But the Indian batsman didn’t respond to him and was focused on his job.

For the other opening batsman, Labuschagne asked, “Who’s your favorite player.” Shubman Gill managed to tackle him and answered, “I’ll tell you after.” But the Aussie player continued to probe the Indian batsman. “Sachin? Do you reckon Virat?” Labuschagne continued his banter with Gill.
