IND vs AUS: The Australian team included two spinners in the playing XI on the turning pitch of Nagpur. Todd Murphy got a chance to make his debut along with experienced spinner Nathan Lyon, but based on these two bravehearts, there was no talk of kangaroos against India.
The Indian team’s three masters of spin gave a crushing defeat to the world’s number-one Test team. This defeat is no less than a nightmare for the Kangaroo team that came on the tour of India riding on the chariot of victory. This defeat has shaken him and now the team management is engaged in course correction.
In this episode, a new uncapped player is about to join the Australian team. According to the indications from the Kangaroo camp, this special player can also become a part of the playing XI in the next match of the series.
Australia sent a call to a special player after the defeat:
The name of the player who was hurriedly given a flight ticket to India after the defeat in the first match by the Australian team management is Matthew Kuhnemann. The 26-year-old Kuhnemann. is a left-handed slow left arm bowler. He has the experience of playing 4 ODIs for Australia but is yet to make his Test debut.
According to Australian coach Andrew McDonald, if the team decides to play three spinners in the second Test of the series to be held in Delhi on February 17, then Kuhnemann may get a chance to debut. Please tell that Kuhnemann has been included in the Australian team in place of leg-spinner Mitchell Swepson, who was included in the Kangaroo squad. Swanson will return home for the birth of his first child as initially planned but will return to India before the third Test.
Kuhnemann said after Queensland’s Sheffield Shield match against Victoria, “The call came yesterday morning when I was going for warm-up. I was very surprised. I was lucky that I had my passport in my bag. I watched the first Test, it’s great to see a series like this. Todd Murphy was excellent and also saw how Ravindra Jadeja bowled. So very excited to go there.
