In their last match, Australia suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of India. India, elected to bat first, made a mammoth total of 352 runs with the loss of five wickets. Opener Shikhar Dhawan scored a century in this high profile match. With a huge target to chase, Australia eventually falls flat by 36 runs.
Australian couldn’t manage to restrict Indian batsman as their key bowlers Starc and Coulter Nile conceded many runs.
On the other hand, Australian batsman performed a bit better when compared to their bowlers. Openers Finch and Warner made a better partnership, while former captain Steve Smith scored a 70 ball 69.
