Bangla Hunt Desk: When one Indian star batsman after another is failing with the bat on Australian soil, Washington Sundar and Shardul Tagore showed their dominance with the bat. The two Indian bowlers stopped the Australian fast bowlers with the bat. At one point, Team India was under pressure after losing 6 wickets for 186 runs, from where these two batsmen took India to 336 runs.
