Getting hammered by an Australian squad without Warner and Smith, terrible.

Their top ODI batsmen are: Warner, Khawaja, S. Marsh, Smith, Turner, Stoinis, Handscomb/wk. Warner, Smith, and Stoinis were injured. So, they bring in Handscomb and the rest. The next best would be Handscomb, Mitch Marsh, Faulkner. Mitch Marsh is out of form. Faulkner, who pulled the original stunner, in this ground before is also injured. For some reason they did not choose Travis Head! Even with this ragtag XI, they managed to beat us :-( Need to work on the fielding.

This team seems to be better abroad where our bowlers get more help than in India especially because our batsmen are no longer that great against spin. And they seem to have figured out Kuldeep.

Rohit Sharma scored runs but he was too slow. Vijay and Kedar could not accelerate either. And, five of the top 7 failed to cross 20. Bad batting performance all-round. I wish Rohit was not so slow at the beginning though. He put pressure on all the following batsmen to hit the spinners and they could not.
