Dhoni bats India into a winning Position in the ODI against Australia…but Ishant Sharma bowls to lose it for us !
Dhoni swashbuckled a fantastic 139 not out in 121 balls to take India to a winning 303 for 9 in 50 overs in the third ODI at Mohali……India scored 56 of the last four overs with Faulkner being taken for 21 in the last over……at one time we were 156 for 6
Aussies were resigned to defeat having lost six wickets and needing 50+ of the last four…we were cruising to a win to go 2-1 up in the seven match ODI series….but then Dhoni got Ishant Sharma to bowl the 48th over….and we lost it!….4,6,6,2,6,6 aggregating 30 runs in one over was Ishant’s effort and Faulkner more than made amends by walloping 64 of 29 balls to take the Aussies to a great win….Vinaykumar should have been continued
India once again snatched defeat from the Jaws of Victory !….or you can say the Aussies snatched Victory from the Jaws of Defeat!
How can Dhoni and Virat keep defending a non performer like Ishant !?….the guy of late cant bowl,bat or field !…there is no fire in his belly like we saw when he was Pointing’s nightmare in Australia a few years ago…he lacks Motivation and an Instinct to win….bowls without using his Brains to read the situation
Like my Brother in Law quipped “Ishant should now be I’Shant (play cricket)”
I don’t think he will be playing for India again anytime soon in any format !
