Team India travelled to Australia amidst great anticipation and many expected the men in blue to put up a good fight against the Aussies but that wasn’t to be.
India lost the 2nd ODI of the series today and perfomed rather poorly both with the bat and ball.
Australian batsmen played superbly well and put up a mammoth target of 390 runs to the Indian batsmen and in the end, it turned out to be too big of a challenge for the shaky looking Indian line-up.
Kohli and Rahul got to 89, and 76 runs respectively but the remaining batsmen failed to capitalise on the starts that they got.
Many netizens are now opining that India clearly missed star opener Rohit Sharma, who in his day, could have torn the Australian bowling apart.
Rohit is a fine knick and if he managed to give India positive starts up the order, things might have been different for the men in blue.
It remains to be seen if Rohit will be available for the forthcoming test series.
