World Cup Countdown – One keeper batsman successful, pressure on other

Low-scoring matches often become exciting. Despite Mitch Marsh's quick run, Australia's team was all out for 188, so it seemed as if the Indian team would win easily.

But on a pitch conducive to fast bowling, Australia failed the Indian top order and sealed the match. But in this match of great upheaval, KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja finally gave India victory.

This match solved some of the problems of the Indian team for the upcoming ODI World Cup, while some questions still remain to be answered.

Marsh's blistering innings

In the first match of the series played at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium, India's stand-in captain Hardik Pandya won the toss and decided to bowl first.

In the second over of the match, Australian opener Travis Head welcomed Mohammad Siraj with a four in the direction of the covers. But Siraj did not lose courage and clean bowled Travis Head in the last ball of the over. Even behind this wicket, Siraj had used a little trick, which Sunil Gavaskar praised fiercely in the commentary.

He said, "The ball that hit the boundary was bowled at a speed of 130 mph. But after hitting the boundary, he increased his bowling speed. At a speed of 140, the ball swung slightly inwards and see what the result was. "

But despite the first wicket falling for five runs, Australia did not let the run rate fall. Captain Steven Smith and Mitch Marsh took the team's score to 50 in the ninth over. The pair both were looking dangerous and they shared a partnership of 72 runs in 63 balls.

But in such a difficult time for the team, the Indian captain showed the way to the pavilion to the opposition captain. Hardik's outbound ball hit the edge of Smith's bat and keeper KL Rahul took the catch.
