Team India suffered yet another one day defeat at the hands of an aggressive Australian side. By just winning the toss and putting up a 300 plus runs is not enough to win a 50 over game. Both bowling and fielding should be razor sharp and we lack quality bowlers from the last one decade and the trend continue down under also. B. Kumar and U. Yadav can just turn their arms but not penetrative enough to take vital wickets. When both Smith and Bailey were belting our bowling with a run a ball innings the fielders looked like sorry spectators. Singles were stolen in front of our nose and the bowling changes were not impressive. In all Rohit Sharma’s innings went in vain and Steve Smith won the man of the match of the award for his useful 149 at a crucial stage. Kudos to Australian side to issue a wake up call for India.
