Team India comfortably defended a total of 164 in 21 overs against Australia in the first ODI at M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, after the match was curtailed due to rain.
Virat Kohli & Co. took a 1-0 lead in the 5 match series by defeating Steve Smith’s men by 26 runs (D/L) on Sunday.
Disappointed with his team’s defeat, former Australian cricketer Dean Jones took to Twitter and wrote, “So I see India needed a bit of rain to win that game. Ok … bring on Game 2.”

But, the tweet did not go well with India cricket fans and Jones had to face a lot of heat for his remark.
Here is how the Indian fans on Twitter reacted:
Another brain fade moment for another Australian 😂

Well, rain helped you draw the Melbourne test match in 1985-86, which India would've surely won.

My dear Dean Jones,
A sophisticated team doesn't make gaffes. I hope you comprehend my context.
