India had a hard time on day 1 of the Ind vs. Aus match. Usman Khawaja, who finished his century in the last over of the first day, was still batting overnight with Cameron Green, who was on 49. Cameron Green turned 50 at the start of the second day. For the first time in the series between India and Australia, India went an entire session without losing a wicket. As the day went on, the Indian bowlers became easier for the two batters to face.
Usman Khawaja got to 150, and Cameron Green quickly followed with a wonderful hundred. During the fourth and final Test between India and Australia, which took place in Ahmedabad, the two scored 208 runs together. Green and Khawaja are the fourth Australian pair to score more than 200 runs together in India. The Australian player played a few games against India at first, but couldn’t get his score above 100.
R Ashwin finally broke the long partnership, and India let out a sigh of relief. On day 2 of the Ind vs. Aus series, Cameron Green was finally out at 114, and India got their first wicket. The home team did a little better in the second session, getting 3 wickets. Brad Haddin could not stop praising Cameron Green when he talked about his innings.
“Every time we’ve seen him, he gets better and better. What’s been more impressive is the tempo he’s played at. He’s come and taken the game on. He hasn’t missed an opportunity to score, so his mindset’s all about looking to score, not just occupying the crease. The Indians don’t have an answer for him,” Haddin said.
Due to an injury, the 23-year-old player missed the first two games of the India vs. Australia series. He joined the team when veteran opener David Warner got a small break and had to go back to Sydney. At tea on the second day of the fourth test between India and Australia, the hosts were 409-7 and Usman Khawaja was on 180 runs.
