We reported earlier that you won’t be seeing one of the best players of the Indian cricket team, Shikhar Dhawan play in the first three ODIs of the India vs Australia series. However, Team India is already in the headlines after the first match and is leading the series. Rain halted the India vs Australia match. However, the Indian team was declared the winner of the match by D/L method because of the strong position it created by batting first.
India, who was batting first, managed to build a strong target for the rivals by scoring 281/7 in 50 overs. The reason why Team India was declared the winner is that the Australian team managed to score just 137 runs losing 9 wickets in 21 overs.
Yes, Team India is leading the series, but it wasn’t that easy for the team. The brilliant openers and players like Virat Kohli, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav couldn’t start the match well. Fortunately, Hardik Pandya and MS Dhoni shined throughout the innings.
Hitting 5 fours and 5 sixes, Hardik Pandya scored 83 runs in 66 balls, on the other hand, MS Dhoni kept Pandya calm and focused. Dhoni scored 79 runs off 88 balls bring Team India out of the danger zone.
With a wonderful team play of Pandya and Dhoni, the Indian cricket team managed to give a good target to the Australian cricket team. Hardik Pandya and MS Dhoni were the two players everyone kept talking about even after the match.
One of the fans who got really impressed by Pandya and Dhoni’s performance was Anil Kapoor.
Soon after the winner got declared, Anil Kapoor didn’t delay a bit and praised the team as well as the shining stars of the match, Hardik Pandya, and MS Dhoni on Twitter
