Shreyas Iyer double ton helps India A draw warm-up match against Australia

Australia drew their three-day tour game against the Republic of India A at Brabourne structure on Sunday, however there ar some issues which will leave skipper Steven Smith distressed going into the take a look at series from February twenty-three.

Australia finished their second innings at a hundred and ten for four when each skipper reciprocally set to decision off the play.

The biggest purpose to excogitate for the Australian team management was the unmerciful manner within which India’s domestic batsmen Shreyas Iyer, UN agency slammed his highest fantabulous score of unconquered 202 and second consecutive ton when the Asian country tour match and K Gowtham (74 off sixty-eight balls) decimated the Australian spinners Nathan metropolis and Sir Leslie Stephen O Keefe.

Although metropolis claimed four wickets for 162 and O Keefe took 3 for one zero one, the blow Australia’s frontline spinners received weren't encouraging signs for Australia before the take a look at series.

It conjointly provides more impetus to teach Darren Lehmann’s assessment that bowling is Australia’s biggest concern than its batting.

After O’ Keefe and Mitchell Marsh claimed the wickets of Rishabh Pant (21) and Ishan Kishan (4) among a span of nineteen balls within the initial session, it had been Iyer and Gotham's show as Republic of India A side 171 runs in thirty-two overs to their nightlong score of 176 for four until lunch break.

Frustration was looming massive on Lyon’s face when Iyer slammed 2 boundaries off his over. He kicked the turf when the second boundary went past the valley fielder for a boundary. His initial spell finished with twenty-four runs from four overs.

His second spell was no totally different either wherever he conceded fifty-seven runs in six overs. Iyer took sixteen runs within the initial over when he was brought back to the attack. Iyer slammed his fifth six of the innings with the ball sailing over the midwicket. He then deployed the late cuts for 2 boundaries.

It wasn’t simply Iyer, UN agency was dominating metropolis. Gowtham, UN agency lost virtually 2 days play when suffering a hamstring injury on a primary day, was equally brutal against metropolis. He smashed 3 lofty sixes — 2 over long on and a straight down the bowler’s head as his batting was a revelation.

As way as boundaries were involved, Iyer and Gowtham hardly needed any efforts it appeared. Iyer slammed twenty boundaries and 2 sixes in 117 balls that he baby-faced on Sunday.

The Aussies came back powerfully within the post lunch session to assert the remaining four wickets to bundle out the Republic of India A for 403 in only eight.5 overs to require five6-run lead.

Four overs into the second session, Sir Leslie Stephen O Keefe clean bowled a gimpiness K Gowtham for seventy-four that came in only sixty-eight balls. Gotham's wicket finished the 138-run seventh wicket partnership within which witnessed some lusty blows were witnessed. Next ball it had been Shahbaz Nadeem, UN agency was tried ahead of the stumps. metropolis then removed Ashoke Dinda for 2 to assert his third wicket.

Iyer, UN agency appeared to be suffering from cramps as he closed on his double ton, took on O Keefe as he raced to his double century with 3 consecutive boundaries and a six to require eighteen runs off the over.

However, it's not the primary time that metropolis has been beaten in pre-tour observe games. He went for thirteen6 runs in twenty-two overs against Essex before 2015 Ashes and 0/72 from 13 overs in an exceedingly readying match against country last year. On each tours, he came out sensible throughout the series.
