Cricket Australia to honour indigenous pioneer during Boxing Day Test

After the first test loss at Adelaide in the pink ball day-night test match, team India look in deep trouble. Having performed extremely poorly in the second innings on a pitch where the bowl was neither swinging nor seaming too much, it shows that Indian batsmen have yet not adjusted themselves to the batting conditions in Australia and now they have a very tough task in hand.

In the upcoming test match at Melbourne, India will be missing their main batsmen Virat Kohli as he travels back to India on paternal leave. Apart from that India’s major pacer Mohammad Shami has also been ruled out of the test series as he suffered a hairline fracture in the arm while batting in the second innings. Now in the second test match India will be missing 2 major players while David Warner is set to join back the Australian team after returning from injury.

Second test at the MCG:

The second test match is scheduled to begin from 26 December which is famously known as the Boxing Day. This match will allow more than half the crowd inside the stadium and will be played at the biggest cricket stadium the Melbourne cricket ground. Looking at the current performance, Aussies look the favourite to win the match. 

A special honour for thr MOM:

In this test match a special honour will be given to the person who wins the man of the match award. He will be awarded with Mullagh medal which resembles Johny Mullagh, who was the captain of the Australian team in 1868 which was the first sporting team in Australia to go on tour internationally.
