‘Total domination’ - Twitter reacts after India suffer crushing defeat at Wankhede
India suffered a 10-wicket defeat in the first ODI against Australia at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Tuesday. After being asked to bat first, Virat Kohli & co. were bundled out for 255, despite Shikhar Dhawan scoring a well-made 74. Coming out to chase 256, Australia openers David Warner and skipper Aaron Finch showed no mercy as they hammered Indian bowlers all around the park to chase down the total in the 38th over, without losing a single wicket.
India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh took to Twitter after the match, and praised Australia for “total domination” at Wankhede. In a tweet, he wrote: “Total domination by the Aussies at Wankhede today.. Great innings @AaronFinch5 @davidwarner31 congratulations @CricketAus I am sure our boys in blue will come back stronger in Rajkot #INDvAUS #realchallange.”
Harbhajan was not the only one to react after India’s crushing defeat. Here are other Twitter reactions:
Speaking on Australia’s performance Kohli said: “We were totally outplayed in all departments. It’s a strong Australian team, if you don’t play well, they could hurt you. We saw that with the bat in hand. We didn’t get enough runs. I thought we were too respectful at certain phases and it cost us. Can’t do that against a team like Australia.”
India and Australia will play the 2nd ODI at Rajkot on Friday.
