Indian Bowlers should restrict Australia below 420 runs says Sunil Gavaskar

Former Indian veteran player Sunil Gavaskar said that India have a chance of winning the Adelaide Test only if Indian bowlers restricts Australia for 420 or less in their first innings. "Indian bowlers must restrict Australia for a score of below 420. The first hour of the second day is crucial for both the teams," Gavaskar said. Australia is going to set a big total on the board with David Warner's 145 ended first day's play at 354\6. Gavaskar praised the way Warner and skipper Michael Clarke batted against the Indian pacers and the way they used their feet against the spinners. They both put together on 118 runs for the third wicket before which Clarke retired hurt on 60 due to back pain. Speaking on India's batting, Gavaskar pointed about not having a genuine all-rounder that hurts India in the past and could be their downfall yet again."Indian team does not have a quality all-rounder and they are struggling. An all-rounder can bowl and also be used as an extra batsman," he expressed his view."Playing Karn Sharma was a great move by Virat. He kept his head up when Warner and Clarke going after him. There is absolutely nothing in this pitch to offer him."
