IND vs AUS: Australia not forgetting Virat Kohli in Wankhede, will always disappoint Team India


The Indian team lost in their first ODI match in the year 2020.  The visiting Australian team beat him by 10 wickets on Tuesday, forcing him to make several embarrassing records.  The Kangaroo team's victories were heroic David Warner (128 not out, 112 balls, 17 fours and 3 sixes) and captain Aaron Finch (unbeaten 110 runs, 114 balls, 13 fours and 2 sixes).  With both centuries, Australia unilaterally set the target of 256 runs and with 74 balls remaining, the record was won by 10 wickets.

Why this defeat gave great pain

For Virat Kohli's captaincy team, this defeat would have caused great pain as the number one batsman of 50-50 cricket format is Virat Kohli himself, the bowler is Jasprit Bumrah and both of them were also playing in the team.  In the ICC rankings, number one Virat is followed by opener and vice-captain Rohit Sharma in second place.  These three are the players from whom the opposition team is scared, but nothing like this was seen in Wankhede.  Despite having such a strong team and home advantage, hardly anyone expected to lose by 10 wickets.

India lost by 10 wickets for the 5th time

If we look at the record list, this is the 5th defeat of the Indian team by 10 wickets in ODIs.  Earlier in 2005, South Africa beat him by 10 wickets in Kolkata.  Australia defeated India by 10 wickets for the first time.

When and under whose captaincy team lost by 10 wickets

1981: vs New Zealand, Melbourne (Sunil Gavaskar)
1997: vs West Indies, Bridgetown (Sachin Tendulkar)
2000: vs South Africa, Sharjah (Saurabh Ganguly)
2005: vs South Africa, Kolkata (Rahul Dravid)
2020: vs Australia, Wankhede (Virat Kohli)

This was done away with fear of Bumrah

Warner and Finch, who came to the opening after getting a small target, smashed Jaspreet Bumrah's 'awe' by scoring runs easily.  Initially, he was upset with Bumrah, but at the other end he did not have any problem in putting shots to Shami and Shardul.  The same was seen with Kuldeep.  Finch had little trouble playing this spinner.  Many times the ball also bounced in the air, but fell on 'No Mens Land' and he got time to set his eyes.  After this, the testimony of what happened is giving results.

Numbers game
