India vs Australia Series - Is this now the real test for India?


After an illustrious series win against Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and West Indies post World Cup, Indian team has been humbled in their own backyard as Australia took a 1-0 lead in the ODI series with a thumping 10-wicket in the 1st ODI yesterday.

The start to the much-anticipated India-Australia series was completely unexpected. Australia’s sheer dominance with the ball and with the bat seems to have outsmarted India’s recent formidable form.

After Australia series, India is up against New Zealand.

Is this the beginning of real test for India’s performance or a one off loss? What went wrong at Wankhede?


Here is a good statistical data shared in another post.


Due to change of batting order, match was lost yesterday…
Never change your batting order…
Virat… Never give your place to another…this is your big mistake Virat…


Both Dhawan KLR bat very slow after PP ends. Yesterday also Ind only scored 134 runs in 28 overs. The moment they start playing fast they throw their wickets.
There was no bowling plan for Australian batsman. No game plan was there.

It can’t be denied that Aus & Eng are the two teams that offer toughest challenge to Ind. But, Just one loss doesn’t merit extreme reaction. No doubt Aus is a good side But, We have got better of them in recent past. We out did them on their home soil too. It was just a bad day fro India and Good one for Aus.

Blaming batting order change is not wise either. The decision was good in fact which coincided with bad day. It gave top heavy Ind a bit of depth. Ind lacks solid lower order which costs them a lot of games. Ind has lower order full of promising but inexperienced bats.

Aus gave good fight in 2nd ODI but Ind managed to hold their nerves batting and bowling, especially while bowling. Good performance by Ind which will definitely lift their tail up.

Pandey not being able to grab the opportunity today may pave way for Pant to come back.

Exciting contest ahead in 3rd ODI.


3rd ODI IND vs AUS : Series Decider at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru today. Can India pull it off?


India does well to restrict Aus to 286. Now over to Batters to finish the game!


Clinical performance by India! :muscle: Calm and collected chase. Ind patiently played out the spinners who were finding some purchase from the pitch and kept milking seamers. Hazzlewood did well but in the end wasn’t good enough. Aus weren’t in the game for a single over!
