Team India Suffered A Defeat Against Australia
The Indian team was outblown by Aussies right from day one and the Men in Blue kept struggling to chase the total throughout the contest. Aussies made a whopping 469 in the first innings and India got wrapped up for 270. The Aussies then amassed 270/8 d in the second innings and asked India to chase the record total. In the last innings, none of the Indian batters could get past the fifty-run mark as Kohli topped the scoring sheets with 49.
The Australian cricket team etched its name in the history books by defeating the Indian cricket team in the summit clash at The Oval.
