Two Rohit Sharma centuries, two 300 plus scores, yet the Indians couldn’t keep the rampaging Aussies at bay.
One could go with the excuses trotted out by Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni that his bowlers lacked bite and are incapable of bundling out the opposition. But one could say the same about the Aussies as well.
The Indian batting failed to accelerate in the final 10 overs of their innings.
As for the bowling, it’s time Dhoni reassessed his options and picked bowlers who can bag wickets given their current form and the conditions.
The Indians are simply tasting their own medicine when they regularly chase down imposing totals in docile home conditions to their opponents’ chagrin.
