Australia has finally registered their first win of the series in the 4th ODI of the ongoing five-match series against India.
After winning the toss and choosing to bat first, Australian openers– David Warner and Aaron Finch made full use of the good batting conditions at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.
On the back of the solid opening partnership, Australia posted a big total of 334 runs and looked to dominate for the first time the hosts for the first time in the series.
In reply, Virat Kohli & Co. fumbled in between and couldn’t chase the target even after the good opening stand between Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma.
India lost the match by 21 runs and the decision to send MS Dhoni at number 7 was criticised by fans on Twitter. Fans argued that Dhoni needs to bat at 4 or 5 in the batting order. Many fans believe that Pandya must do the fishing job because he has got the big hits and Dhoni should bat a little up in the batting order.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions:
Virat Kohli is jealous of talented Rohit Sharma. Kya out karwaya aur phir khud bhi wapis chala gaya 😂

Is Kohli out of his mind, what’s the need of holding back the in-form batsman Dhoni, to deprive him of accolades ?

Dhoni should come in to bat at number 11, we need to groom youngsters like Umesh Yadav for 2039 world cup. #INDvAUS

Pandya kind of match this was. Exchange Pandya and Dhoni's batting position in this match and see India winning this easily. FO now

Dhoni should come in to bat ahead of Manish Pandey. It’s difficult for any batsman to start hitting from ball one in a chase like this.
