Twitter Reactions: Australia’s remarkable comeback to clinch the series 3-2

Who would have thought that a depleted Australian side would land in India and walk away with not just one but two trophies? Before the tour started, everyone deemed India to be the favorites for both the series. Australia thumped India 2-0 in the T20I series. If that wasn’t enough, they came back from being 0-2 down to win the ODIs 3-2.

In doing so, they proved that the series victory in T20Is wasn’t a fluke. They proved that they are the World Champions. And despite all the troubles they have gone through in the last one year or so, they can’t be written off. The visitors avenged the defeat India gave them in their own backyard and is some style.

Going into the decider ODI, they had the momentum after winning 2 games in a row. Fortune also favored them as Aaron Finch won the toss on a dry Delhi wicket. The Australians were on a roll with the bat at the top 3 batsmen scored a combined 179 runs. Usman Khawaja scored his 2nd century of the series while Peter Handscomb made 5.

They were well on course for a big score but the Indian bowlers pulled things back slightly. Yet the tail stole some valuable runs that took Australia to 272/9. Two of India’s big top 3 failed this time during the chase. And when that happens, very rarely do the Men in Blue win. The vulnerable middle-order got exposed again.

Rohit Sharma tried to fight a lone battle but his knock ended at 56. Kedar Jadhav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar added 91 runs for the 7th wicket but all they did was delayed the inevitable. India lost the match by 35 runs. The side that was looking well prepared for the World Cup is now left with a plethora of concerns to be handled.
