When both batsmen made their way back to the dressing room off one ball

This might actually sound weird to all of us as one could sense how two batsmen were sent back to the pavilion end off one ball during the first Test match between India and Australia at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune.

Australia won the toss and opted to bat first. The visitors’ approach to playing aggressive cricket was there on eyes right from the word go. The openers David Warner and Matt Renshaw stitched together a comfortable 82-run stand.

A good delivery from Umesh Yadav saw Warner playing in the wrong line and thereby Warner got an inside edge and fell onto the stumps. David Warner departed at 38 runs to the dressing room when the skipper Steve Smith returned to take charge.

At that time, Matt Renshaw who was at the non-striker’s end during Warner’s dismissal was also sent back to the pavilion end after he faced some trouble with his stomach. Renshaw went straight up to the umpire and confirmed that something was troubling him in the stomach. When the umpire nodded his head, Renshaw was rushed to the team’s room.

However, it is understood that Matt Renshaw is retired ill at 36* during the gameplay.
