Here is the reason why Hotstar was down during India vs Australia 2nd Test at  Delhi

While the ongoing Test between India and Australia has seen a fair competition between bat and ball, it has also been marred by a few incidents. The viewers watching the game on Hotstar complained that they are not able to watch the game live.

This led to the flurry of memes hogging the headlines with fans also criticising the OTT platform for depriving them to watch the game online. The digital platform has been down for a while and it’s fair to say that many due to glitches have missed the first day’s play.


However, the reason behind Hotstar going down during Day 1 of the ongoing India vs Australia 2nd Test at Delhi has finally been revealed. It has been learned that the web hosting validity of the OTT platform has expired. The Disney team has purchased the web hosting rights and the services will be resumed by today evening.

India bundle out Australia for 263 runs in the first innings

After losing the toss, India has quite an eventful day as they bundled out Australia for 263 runs in the first innings. Pacer Mohammad Shami led the charge for his side as he drew the first blood for his side by removing David Warner.

Shami didn’t stop there as he went on to take the four-wicket haul and was the pick of the bowlers for Team India. He was complimented well by spin-twins in R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, who took three wickets each, as India folded the opposition of just 263 runs.


For Australia, Usman Khawaja was the best batter as he scored 81 runs. A vital contribution from Peter Handscomb (72*) and skipper Pat Cummins (33) powered Australia to over 260 runs, which at one moment didn’t seem possible.
