The final of the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) is currently taking place between India and Australia at The Oval, England. The Rohit Sharma-led have struggled to get going with the bat and is in deep trouble in their reply to 469 runs.
India had a good start with the bat as they scored 30 runs for the opening partnership but after that, they lost wickets in clusters and were left tottering at 71/4. It was then when Ravindra Jadeja joined hands with Ajinkya Rahane and stitched a crucial 50+ partnership to bail his side out of trouble.
