Good captaincy by Steve Smith

Hit and run game of one day cricket was facing extinction but the way placid wickets are produced for the matches help out the cause and we can see interesting matches in the five match one day series in Australia. Aussies knowing the strong point of India is batting and thus made sure by chasing stiff targets with extreme regularity and much needed confidence. Having achieved a lead of 2-0 in the series, the home side made number of changes to bolster their attack and thereby gave an edge to their bowling combination. Dhoni’s side is having supreme confidence on its batsmen and the bowling side appeared weak one for more than a decade. By winning the home matches we do the balancing act. Kangaroo side came out with a solution to the problem by changing the bowling combination and thereby confusing the strong batting line up and achieved greater success. Cricket is a team game where performance is the name of the game and the Smith led side has learned the trick very well. Despite Indian supporters present in large numbers in the grounds the way victories were achieved in a most calculated way showed the supremacy and gave less chance to Indian side to come back in the series.  Make or break situation has arisen with our own bungling in bowling.
