Ind vs Aus 2nd Test – Is all fine with Ravindra Jadeja’s hamstring? : Ravindra Jadeja’s hamstring came into sharp focus once again when the Team India’s all-rounder got physio treatment during the drinks break on the Day 1 of the ongoing India vs Australia Second Test in Melbourne.
As per Cricbuzz reporter Bharat Sundaresan, who is currently reporting from Melbourne, ‘it looked like Jadeja’s hamstring got stretched.’

Notably, Jadeja missed two T20Is and opening Test against Australia owing to the concussion and a hamstring injury that he sustained during the opening T20 International in Canberra. However, the southpaw managed to recover quickly and was deemed fit for the Boxing Day Test in which he replaced Virat Kohli, who returned home to attend the birth of his first child.
Ind vs Aus 2nd Test: Ashwin strikes twice to put visitors in driver’s seat
Ravichandran Ashwin stole the show with two wickets while pacer Jasprit Bumrah provided India an early breakthrough to put Australia on the back foot in the first session of the Boxing Day Test here at Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday.
Joe Burns (0) failed to capitalise on the start he got in the last Test as India drew the first blood. If Bumrah provided India an early breakthrough, it was Ashwin who stole the show with his two wickets (Wade and Smith) in the first session.
The Tim Paine-led side’s score read 65/3 at the end of the first session on the first day.
