Australia opted to bat first in the first test match of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Pune. And the pitch looked so dry that even Ravi Shastri was surprised!
However, Umesh Yadav upset the apple cart by ripping apart the Aussie batting line up in the final session of play.
Yadav and his "breakthroughs in the first over of the spell" is a great love story in making.
Twitter was abuzz with the test match being dominated by India where Yadav impressed everyone on a rank turner pitch.
Here are some reactions:-
Umesh Yadav has been brilliant. Top catch that from Saha.Winning a session in India possible,but winning a day very very difficult.#IndvAus

For all those talking about rank-turner and all that, UMESH YADAV IS INDIA's LEADING WICKET TAKER IN THE INNINGS. #INDvAUS

26 years after Sri Lanka's Rumesh Ratnayake's 6/66 prompted the headline "Rumesh the Wrecker", now we have "UMESH the Wrecker" ???? #IndvAus

Just incredible, accurate fast bowling from Umesh! Skidding it through & leaving the batsmen with very little time on the crease! #INDvAUS

Harder to blame the home pitch – even if it's turning at right angles on day 1 – when Umesh has 4/25.#INDvAUS
