IND vs AUS 2020 2nd ODI: The Indian batsmen made a total of four 50+ scores in the two games, while the Australians scored five in the second match alone.
India meaninglessly threw away wickets in an even taller chase than the previous game. Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan swapped performances from the last game, while KL Rahul stepped up.
The writing was already on the wall after an abysmally poor bowling effort against the marauding Aussie top order.
Here are the three worst performers of the IND vs AUS 2020 2nd ODI:
Yuzvendra Chahal (IND): Bowling to larger boundaries than the ones he so well protected at Sharjah and Bangalore in the IPL, Chahal was taken to the cleaners for the second successive game. To top it all off, he went wicket-less and went without completing his quota, having given 71 runs off his 9.
Mitchell Starc (AUS): The left-armer’s poor starts in both games allowed the Indian openers to put on 50 runs quickly – notably, his first over back in action went for 20.
With nothing to show for in the wickets column – even Moises Henriques got a wicket – Starc would have a lot to worry about, especially with an economy rate of 9.1.
Navdeep Saini (IND): Saini was hit for a six on the first ball he bowled, which set the tone for the rest of the day. He was bafflingly called on to bowl the final over ahead of Mohammed Shami, and his show ensured there were more questions than answers after it.
