Even Pakistan had chance to win Test series in Australia: Mohammad Yousuf

We're not too stressed about results.

When Karthik fell in the 40th over, India needed 113 runs to win, and only a huge century from Sharma could make it possible.

At the heart of their problems is the batting, where Australia averaged just 27.68 runs per wicket with the bat in 2018 - its lowest since 1997.

"Personally, I always feel that Dhoni batting at number four will be ideal for the team but we have got Ambati Rayudu who has done really well now at number four". I think it was a good learning but we've said that enough about learning now, it's time to go an execute - take the pressure, absorb the pressure.

Then, after India completed the historic 2-1 Test series win in Sydney, Kohli led the way as entire Indian team was seen doing some sort of a celebratory dance.

England, the current No 1 nation, made eight from 24 matches, New Zealand five from 16 and India four from 20. Unfortunately all the four hundreds I have scored in Australia, we have lost all the games. On Friday, India captain Virat Kohli said their comments were not acceptable. "From the Indian cricket team point of view, any inappropriate comments that are made in that scenario are something that we definitely don't support and the two concerned players felt what has gone wrong and they have understood the magnitude of what's happened", said Virat who is married to Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma.

"The Australians are struggling at the moment".

Dems' Double Standards Exposed as Trump Visits Border Amid Shutdown
Trump told reporters, adding later, "If we don't make a deal, I would say 100 percent but I don't want to say 100 percent".

"Definitely not going to dampen anything that we've achieved", he said.

"Obviously a lot depends on Aaron Finch at the top of the order". It was an epic fightback from Dhoni, whose 332 ODIs boasted as much experience as Australia's entire XI, and Sharma, arguably the best one-day batter in the world.

Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh and Peter Handscomb all passed 50 as Australia posted a total of 288-5 in Saturday's ODI series opener against India. "We knew that they'd try and take it deep and luckily we were able to take wickets and stem the flow. All these external factors are not going to derail our motivation or the preparation for the World Cup". "They play their own conditions very well but I think the amount of times they're winning away from home in the shorter formats is a credit to them".

India's ODI record in Australia is quite poor.

"Do you reckon we're just playing a bit of lip service to our domestic 50 over?"

On some level, it would come as relief to the team and most of its followers that the attention can soon turn to the actual cricket from Saturday, as Sydney hosts first of the three ODIs between the two sides. So are we developing the right sort of players?

This latest controversy, coming immediately in the wake of India's triumph in the Test series in Australia, has once again split the BCCI and the CoA.
