India vs Aus 5th ODI: Dhoni Opts to Field


Sydney: 5th ODI between India and Australia being played at Sydney Cricket Ground while captain Dhoni opts to field first.

Despite putting a good show with the bat in the series so far, it is hard to believe that MS Dhoni-led India are trailing 0-4 in the five-match series.

Five tons by Indian batsmen have gone in vain as bowlers have failed to defend formidable totals in most of the matches. While the visitors lost first three matches batting first, in the fourth ODI, a huge batting collapse was the reason behind their loss.

Steve Smith would be very happy with the way his team has performed as the Aussies are playing with an inexperienced bowling attack without the likes of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, James Pattinson.

The Aussie batsmen are in terrific form and it remains to be seen whether they can add to India’s woes with a series whitewash.
