This was the fifth time in the history of ODI cricket when Team India lost by ten wickets. The last time India lost so badly in 2005 was against South Africa in Kolkata. After 15 years, in 2020, India lost by ten wickets from Australia.
The teams that have defeated India by ten wickets so far are New Zealand, West Indies, South Africa and Australia. The team New Zealand defeated Team India by ten wickets for the first time in 1981. Out of these, South Africa has defeated India twice by ten wickets. South Africa did this amazing in the years 2000 and 2005. Australia defeated India by ten wickets for the first time in ODI cricket.
Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, Team India suffered a ten-wicket defeat in ODI cricket for the first time. India would hardly have imagined such a defeat in the three-match ODI series, but it happened and the Indian team was exposed. Changing the batting order for Team India did not prove to be a right decision, apart from this, the performance of the bowlers of the Indian team was also ordinary, who were not able to take a single wicket in the match.
Although KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan were the highest run scorers for India in this match, none of the other batsmen played any big innings apart from these two. The performance of Indian bowlers under Jasprit Bumrah also faded. Although Virat Kohli has said that there is no need to panic about the match and he will continue to experiment further now, but his use may be overshadowed by Team India. Now there are only two matches left and the Indian team will have to win both the matches to win the ODI series, but the way the Australia team has shown it will not be easy for India.
