In the match played between India and Australia in Chennai, the bowling of the Indian cricket team remained on cloud nine. Team India had dropped Australia’s 6 wickets for 196 runs only. But after this there were some good partnerships between Australia’s bowlers, due to which their score reached 270. The Indian bowlers took longer to dismiss the tailenders of the Australian team.
2) Indian middle order completely flopped
Chasing the target of 270 runs, the innings of the Indian team got off to a great start. Openers Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill got the team off to a good start. After this Virat Kohli and KL Rahul also batted well. Significantly, the middle order of the Indian team was a complete flop. Barring Hardik Pandya, every player disappointed with their batting in the middle order.
3) Suryakumar’s bat remained silent
For Suryakumar Yadav, the explosive middle-order batsman of the Indian team, the ODI series played against Australia was no less than a nightmare. Surya could not score even 1 run in the 3 matches played. He got out on the very first ball i.e. Golden Duck in every match. In such a situation, Surya’s failure to bat in the third ODI also became a major reason for the defeat of Team India.

4) Run out of in-form Akshar Patel
Indian team’s star all-rounder Akshar Patel’s bat has spoken fiercely this time against Australia. He has beaten the Australian bowlers a lot. But in an important match like Chennai, Akshar Patel was run out after scoring just 2 runs. Steve Smith’s finesse sends him back to the dressing room. Akshar’s run out was one of the turning points of the match.
