The hosts had to prove their mettle and take the initiative in the first match of the ODI series. Bowling first, Indian bowlers managed to restrict Aussie batsmen from getting in their groove. The likes of Bumrah, Shami and Kuldeep Yadav kept taking wickets to make sure that Australia didn’t take off in the match. Ultimately, Australian batsmen fought to get 236 runs on board and give their bowlers something to defend.
Albeit a few hiccups, Indian batting display was an impressive one and the hosts chased the target with 10 balls to spare. Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni and Kedar Jhadav took India over the finishing line fairly comfortably. The win over Australia has come at the perfect time as Indians step up their preparations for the World Cup in summer.
