IND vs AUS: 5 Big Reasons of Team India Defeat


India has defeated Australia in the second ODI in a row. With this, Team India fell behind 2–0 in the three one-day series and Australia won the series. In the second ODI too, the story for India was similar to the first ODI. The hosts played 389 for four in their first innings with the help of Steve Smith (104), David Warner (83), Marnus Labuschen (70) and Glenn Maxwell (63). In response to this, India fought but could not win in the absence of a big knock. India could only manage 338 runs for nine wickets in 50 overs and lost by 51 runs.


Causes of India's Defeat in Australia Tour

1. Bad bowling

Team India continued to be embarrassed in bowling on the Australia tour. After looting 374 runs in the first ODI, gave 389 runs today. Also, there was failure to take wickets. In the first match, the team had taken six wickets, so today they could take only four wickets. Jaspreet Bumrah and Mohammed Shami could not take wickets in the powerplay. India got their first success in the 23rd over after scoring 142 runs. The rest of the bowlers like Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravindra Jadeja also failed to take wickets and stop runs. Team India is playing with five bowlers anyway and the failure of all five together is a matter of concern. Saini disappointed the most. In the second ODI, he could not get even 10 overs of his quota. He plundered 70 runs in seven overs.

2. Waste Fielding

Fielding of India is highly appreciated. The team has amazing fielders like Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Shreyas Iyer. Nevertheless, in the second consecutive match, Team India presented a view of poor fielding. Fielder dripped easy catches, giving many unnecessary runs. World class fielder like Jadeja also got caught in Sydney ODI. In such a situation, where the team had to save runs from fielding, it could not be done but gave extra. However, Shreyas Iyer dismissed David Warner with an excellent throw. But Team India needed many such efforts.

3. Batsman failed to play big innings

Team India cannot tolerate any batting failure due to having five specialist bowlers. Also, to chase a score like 390, any batsman needs to play a big innings like 150 runs. Also, the rest of the batsmen are also expected to score fast. But this could not happen in the second ODI in a row. Captain Virat Kohli was the top scorer for India with 89 runs. Apart from him KL Rahul scored 76 runs. None of the other centuries could make even a half-century. In such a situation, making a score like 390 is an impossible task. The same thing happened in the first ODI. At that time only Hardik Pandya and Shikhar Dhawan could score half-centuries.

4. Kohli's captaincy

When the team is playing ordinary then it is expected that the captain will try some extraordinary maneuvers and try to reverse the ball. But all this did not show under Kohli's captaincy. He could neither do anything different in bowling nor did he see anything new in batting. Team India did not get a wicket in the powerplay in the fifth consecutive match. But Team India kept bowling with Shami-Bumrah's formula. Neither the spin bet was thrown nor bowling started with Saini. Team India continued to play the same way in two consecutive matches and Kohli kept watching. Even in bowling, he failed to form any new scheme.

5. Lack of good start with the opening pair

A major reason for India's defeat was the failure of the opening pair. With the absence of Rohit Sharma, Mayank Agarwal was tried in the opening with Shikhar Dhawan. However Dhawan-Mayank gave the team a start. In both matches, they formed a half-century partnership in a stormy manner. The problem was that the partnerships could not be big or century. Chasing more than 350 goals does not help half-century partnerships. Also, none of Dhawan and Mayank could take their innings to 100 runs. Mayank lost a good start in both the matches. He could not even cross the score of 30 runs. At the same time, Dhawan put a fifty in the first match but he failed to do so in the second ODI.
