    Agarkar criticises Kuldeep's exclusion

    “I think Kuldeep should be very disappointed, and why shouldn’t he? After the last Test of the last series, he was the No. 1 spinner for India. He hasn’t played a Test since I think. If you're going in with five bowlers, which they've obviously looked at the experience and perhaps thought need a cushion. But why not play another spinner? It gives you that balance in the attack. If the pitch flattens out, and there isn’t much for the quicks, then suddenly it becomes a one-dimensional attack,” Agarkar said on the 'Extraaa Innings' show on Sony Sports Network.

  • JAN 16, 2021 04:48 AM IST

    What Labuschagne said after scoring ton on Day 1

    Labuschagne: "You know you don't need to be playing at anything around 4th stump line or even 3 and half stumps. I tell myself to be cool, when you get to a hundred just carry on. It's about how that moment is, I don't plan my hundred celebration. Little bit disappointed that I got out. For Tim and Green to play like that against the new ball was good. Maybe we have a slight edge but they hung in there throughout."

  • JAN 16, 2021 04:35 AM IST

    Key for India on Day 2

    India will be looking at Siraj to provide some inspiration with the ball early on in Day 2. Sundar did not have the best of days with the ball, and so it may go down to pacers.
