Twitter Left Stunned As India Suffer Series Loss Against Australia

India suffered a 35-run loss in the fifth and final ODI against Australia at the Feroz Shah Kotla and ended up losing the series 3-2 – their first ODI series loss at home since 2015 against South Africa.

Batting, Australia’s top order fired against the Indian bowlers. Aaron Finch was dismissed early, but his partner went on to score his second consecutive century.

But quick wickets in crucial stages by the bowlers allowed India to get back in the game and they were able to restrict the visitors to just 272-9 at the end of their 50 overs.

India did not have the best of starts. Shikhar Dhawan departed early, Virat Kohli failed to fire and Rishabh Pant was dismissed in a tame manner. Rohit Sharma scored a half-century but never found support at the other end.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Kedar Jadhav gave some hope to the Indian run-chase with a 91-run stand but it was too much for the lower order to handle and they were eventually bowled out for 237.
