Shardul Thakur and Washington Sundar made special knocks – SBB Times


It was January 17, 2021, when young Indian all-rounders, Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur stitched a match-winning partnership of 123 off 217 balls to propel India’s comeback win against Australia on the fourth day of the fourth Test at the Gabba. This was India’s highest 7th wicket partnership at the Gabba and the 3rd highest in Australia’s history and came as India found their wall on the wall to chase Australia’s target on Day 3 of the 1st innings in the Brisbane Test. Patted on the back

The pair of Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur opened the partnership when the team was reeling at 186/6 in the second session, and Australia were clearly on top, eyeing a big lead. Thakur and Sundar, on the other hand, had other plans, with the latter making his Test debut in the same over with a six off Pat Cummins and a crisp drive through mid-on. Both of them were able to take on the Australian bowlers well and went on to score some valuable runs.

The Australian bowlers knew nothing about the opposition and looked frustrated with the way both teams batted. Shardul was on the attack in the final session when he smashed Mitchell Starc for a six and another half-century off Nathan Lyon. Meanwhile, Sundar stuns everyone with his scintillating performance.

The Australian bowlers flared up and as a result began to plunder runs. The 123-run partnership was eventually broken by none other than Pat Cummins, who dismissed Thakur for 67. Sundar, on the other hand, scored 62 on debut before getting dismissed.

For a while, the tail wags too, with Mohammed Siraj entertaining the crowd with his batting, before India were bowled out for 336.

Earlier in the day, the overnight pairing of Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane looked promising, and they even got lucky on a few occasions. But it was Pujara who got a snotter from Hazlewood, who finished with a five-wicket haul, while Rahane threw away his wicket in the first session with a loose shot.
