Team India all-rounder Washington Sundar has been extremely impressive in his debut Test against Australia at the Gabba. The 21-year-old provided the visitors a major breakthrough removing David Warner with a ripper of a delivery.
Meanwhile, the hosts got off to a flying start in the morning session of day 4 in Brisbane. Openers – David Warner and Marcus Harris took on the inexperienced Indian pace attack bringing the boundaries easily. The runs came by easily before Shardul Thakur removed Hariss. The gates opened and Washington Sundar, who has troubled Warner all morning, sneaked in one more getting the dangerous batsman out two short of his half-century.
Washington Sundar removes David Warner
Washington Sundar pulled off a Stuart Broad here at the Gabba. He instantly ran in celebration soon as he pinged David Warner on the back pad. He knew that was plumb and barely bothered to appeal. The southpaw was stuck on the crease as he didn’t read the length, stayed back to a ball that was full.
A nothing shot from the pocket-size dynamo as he failed to read the non-turner. There was no spin from Washington Sundar and it crashed low on the pads. David Warner walked off soon as he saw umpire Paul Wilson raise his finger and the review was just a mere case of desperation from Marnus Labuschagne.

Soon after Washington Sundar dismissed David Warner, Indians tasted blood and came all guns blazing against Australia. If this series will be remembered for anything it will be for the fights, the resilience Indian cricketers have shown every time they have been pushed to the corner.
Mohammed Siraj removed in-form Marnus Labuschagne and Matthew Wade in a short span of time to put the side on top. The hosts were at 88 for no loss before soon finding themselves at 123 for four. India will look to sneak in a couple of more wickets quickly while Steve Smith will be keen to post another big knock for the last one time in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
