India bad start: India vs Australia 3rd ODI
The beginning of the Indian team is very exciting. Shikhar Dhawan was dismissed for a run, while Rohit Sharma scored 14 runs. But there was no effect of the dismissal of Indian batsmen on one side on the captain Virat Kohli. As long as he was present on the crease, he kept Team India in the match. After the two openers were dismissed, Ambati Rayudu also went for two runs. Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav certainly played with Virat, but both of them also scored 26-26. After this Vijay Shankar definitely played Virat, but after Virat was out, he was out in an effort to increase the speed. After this, no Indian batsman has tried to win.
