What was the turning point of the match
The turning point of the match was the powerplay of the Indian innings. Rohit and Virat were batting well after the dismissal of Shubman Gill. But as soon as Rohit Sharma’s wicket fell, the team’s innings got derailed. India lost 5 wickets in the first 10 overs. The team could not recover from here. After Shubman Gill, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya were dismissed till the 10th over.
Australian bowler batsman both shone
At first all the Australian fast bowlers bowled brilliantly in helpful conditions to restrict the Indian team to a very simple score, while when it came to bat, both their openers showed that they were playing on a different pitch. The toe of Mitchell Starc saw the Indian team settle for their fourth-lowest total on their home soil. Starc first shook the Indian top order and then opened the claw with the wicket of Mohammad Siraj.
Only Virat Kohli could cross the 30 mark for India. Akshar Patel scored 29 runs but did not get any support from the other end. Sean Abbott and Nathan Ellis ably supported Starc, taking three and two wickets respectively. Australia captain Steve Smith won the toss and took the right decision to bowl first. There was no looking back after Starc dismissed Shubman Gill for a duck on the third ball of the first over.
