India Lost The Fourth ODI Against Australia And Twitteratis Are Very Angry

Last updated:

Australia registered their first win of the series in the fourth match at the Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore. Australia batted first and started off in a specular fashion with David Warner and Aaron Finch. Both the openers displayed top quality batting and smashed Indian bowlers all around the stadium.

Both, Warner and Finch, are very powerful hitters of the cricket ball and they made India’s bowling attack look ordinary in the middle. Finch, who scored a hundred on his comeback in the third ODI, carried on his good form but he was unlucky to miss out on a well deserved hundred.

However, David Warner didn’t miss the opportunity and scored a brilliant hundred in his 100th ODI for Australia. On the back of the opening partnership, Australia posted a big total of 334 runs and looked in a strong position for the first time in the series. They would have loved to score runs but Indian bowlers pulled back well after the fall of Warner and Finch. Umesh Yadav bowled a good spell and became the 18th Indian bowler to take 100 wickets in ODI cricket.

India, in reply, couldn’t chase the target and lost the match by 21 runs. Once again, Hardik Pandya was sent at number 4 and he batted well. He cored 41 runs but couldn’t take India to victory. He fell off Adam Zampa’s bowling and this put the lower middle order under a lot of pressure.

India lost the match and the decision to send MS Dhoni at number 7 was criticised by fans on social media. 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. We have embedded some of the tweets for you here:
