MS dhoni made a slow 51 runs off 96 deliveries and Twitteratis blame him for the defeat


The first ODI started a bit disappointingly for India as they lose to host Australia by 34-runs in Sydney as the Aussies manage to restrict India for 254/9.

Chasing a target of 289, India lost Dhawan, Kohli and Rayudu by first 4 runs and then MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma put a vital 137-run partnership. Rohit Sharma smashed 133 off 129 balls whereas Dhoni scored 51-runs off 96 balls. Dhoni also managed to complete his 10,000 ODI runs.

However, despite Dhoni being such a reliable partner for Sharma today, fans still blame him for today’s ODI loss to Australia.

Dhoni’s slow batting pace and him struggling ball to ball to make runs and then getting out in a crucial is being blamed for India’s loss.

Rohit was outstanding, MS supported well. They batted well and they took the game deep. Deep enough for us to think that we had a chance. MS was just looking to accelerate and he got out,” said India skipper Virat Kohli after the game.
