Watch: Virat Kohli Reacts Angrily As KS Bharat Hits Usman Khawaja With Throw

Highlights: 

  • Usman Khawaja scored his first Test century in India on Thursday, as Australia dominated the first day of the fourth and final Test match for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
  • Khawaja was also at the centre of attention for another incident, when KS Bharat unintentionally hit him with the ball, catching Virat Kohli’s attention.
  • At the end of play, Khawaja was batting on 104 and Cameron Green was on 49, putting together an aggressive stand of 85 runs.

Australia’s opening batsman, Usman Khawaja, impressed with his first Test century in India on Thursday as Australia dominated the first day of the fourth and final Test match for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy at the world’s largest cricket stadium in Ahmedabad. Opting to bat after winning the toss, Australia reached 255 for 4 in their bid to level the series.

While Khawaja’s century stole the spotlight, he was also at the centre of attention for another incident. During the 71st over, Khawaja avoided a bouncer bowled by Mohammed Shami. However, KS Bharat, who was fielding at slips, threw the ball back towards the bowler and unintentionally hit Khawaja. This incident caught Virat Kohli’s attention, and he appeared displeased with Bharat.

Realizing his mistake, the wicketkeeper quickly rushed to the Australian batsman to apologise for his mistake. The precise time can be seen at 1 minute and 20 seconds in the video.

At the end of play, Khawaja and Cameron Green had put together an aggressive stand of 85 runs while Khawaja was batting on 104 and Green was on 49.

In order to give Australia a solid start, the left-handed Khawaja put on crucial stands, including a 79-run third-wicket partnership with skipper Steve Smith, who made 38.4

After hitting a boundary in the final over of the day, the Pakistan-born, Usman Khawaja leapt with joy as he secured his second century of the low-scoring series.

Expressing his excitement, Khawaja told Star Sports, “There was a lot of emotion in that. I’ve been to India on two previous tours and had to carry drinks for eight Test matches, so it’s been a long journey to finally hit a hundred in India.”

He also added, “As an Australian, that’s something you want to tick off, so it’s very special.”
