AUS vs IND Match Analysis and Review
AUS vs IND, India lost the first two games. Indian batting was much more satisfactory as compared to their first clash with Australia. Indian skipper finally was able to perform on Sydney ground.
Virat Kohli and K L Rahul gave a little hope to the team but they were unable to lead Indian team to victory. As India has lost the first two games they have to make changes in their team. As Navdeep Saini is having a tough time on the field he should be replaced by the young T Natarajan.
Australia batting can’t be better than this as the opening duo of Warner and A Finch are at their best and are performing at their fullest. They have played for their team fabulously both scored half-centuries.
Their half-centuries were followed by a tremendous century by Steve Smith a half-century by Labuschagne and Maxwell. They gave India an outrageous target of 390 with the of only 4 wickets. Few changes have been made in the team for the last match of the series as David Warner is replaced by Cameron Green (expected) and Patt Cummins will be replaced by Sean Abbott.
