An awesome game of ODI cricket between a young Indian team and partially handicapped Australian team after the loss of players like Andrew Symonds , Adam Gilchrist etc. ! Will present Australian team ever be able to meet the standards set by the previous team? Will it be able to go beyond that? Time will tell about that but today’s game was just about VIRAT and VIRAT !!
Australians came back in the game after losing early wickets to Ashish Nehra. They reahced a total that no one expected.Cameroon White was seeing the ball like a football and he hit six 6’s in his innings.But as the Indian Innings started and Virat was on the crease, the total never seemed big at any point of time. Yuvraj chipped in with a nice 50 after a long period of time. And Raina as always played his natural game, sending the ball to the boundary!! Some good bowling performances by Ashish Nehra and Clint McKay though!!
Winning runs were hit by Saurabh Tiwary who was playing his first game.
Seems like Australians have lost it,they have lost their charm,their glory,the fear they brought with them.Will they be able to come back in the next game in Goa?Will they be able to prove that they still have the capability?
Well we will have to wait for the next game !!
