The second Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy is currently happening in Delhi. Since it is a weekday, many fans were watching the game on Hotstar. However, the server of the OTT platform went down during the game. Hence, there were many reactions on Twitter. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as Hotstar goes down during India vs Australia 2nd Test in Delhi.

Hotstar issues during India vs Australia 2nd Test

It was expected that India would repeat their show at the Arun Jaitely Stadium in Delhi. However, the Aussies were out with resolve and did well in the opening hour. The likes of Usman Khawaja, who failed in Nagpur, tackled the Indian pacers well. However, David Warner lost his wicket to Mohammed Shami. It was a similar ploy by the West Bengal pacer that he did in Nagpur that was used to get Warner out in Delhi, too.

However, once the Aussies lost the wicket of Warner, it was hard for them to tackle the heat of Indian spinners. R Ashwin took two wickets in the space of three balls and these wickets were that of Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith. Travis Head, too, did not survive for long. With this, yet again India arrived into the game. Amidst this, the lack of streaming on Hotstar disturbed the flow for many Indian fans.
