Australia v India: Crowd's savage act after Rishabh Pant's costly blunder

Australia v India: Crowd's savage act after Rishabh Pant's costly blunder

It remains to be seen who will don the gloves for India at the World Cup, with the ageing Dhoni also facing his share of criticism in recent times.

Kohli (123) fought a lone battle at the JSCA International Stadium Complex on Friday while chasing the Australian total of 313 for 5 as the top-order batsmen failed to contribute. "We want to win the series".

"We haven't had too much of a debrief yet but it will be something along the lines of "take this belief, take this confidence, this momentum, keep building".

Mani said that Pakistan's stance is very clear that cricket must not be used for politics.

India captain Virat Kohli said all the players would donate their fees from the match to a national defence fund to help out the families of defence personnel who die on duty.

- Khawaja and Peter Handscomb's stand of 192 runs is now the highest for the third wicket against India in India in ODIs, going past 181 runs stand between Adam Parore and Ken Rutherford at Baroda in 1994.

Turner finished in style, stepping up superbly when Australia required 88 from 53 balls following Handscomb's dismissal. Ashton Turner was the star with the bat, slamming an unbeaten 84 off just 43 balls.

Australia haven't won a ODI series since beating Pakistan 4-1 at home in January 2017, while they haven't travelled to India and beaten the hosts in a one-day series since October 2009.

Marcus Stoinis was ruled out of the fourth ODI against India after sustaining a thumb injury during the third ODI in Ranchi.

To take their places, Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have made an entry in the team.

Screaming fans were left shellshocked as India dropped their bundle, plus catches, when Turner was on 74 and 80.

Earlier Shikhar Dhawan struck a career-best 143 to guide India to 358 for nine after electing to bat first. Rohit Sharma also scored 95 runs and the duo put on 193 runs for the opening wicket to set the stage for a challenging score.
