Australia vs India 2018: Twitter Reacts as India Dominates Aussies at the MCG
Team India has done pretty well to restrict Australians for a moderate total at the MCG. It was a pretty convincing performance from the Indian fast bowlers to keep Australian batsmen calm on the field. However, the brilliance by Ben McDermott helped them to put a respectable total on the board.
Indian bowlers delivered well:
Initially, it was Virat Kohli, who won the toss for the second time in the series and once again, asked his boys to take the field first. This time, they responded brilliantly by getting the wicket of Aaron Finch right in the first over.
Then, it was Khaleel Ahmed, who has been brilliant with the new ball bagged Chris Lynn and D’Arcy Short to make things fall in place for team India. However, then came Bumrah to knock Marcus Stonis.
Meanwhile, Glenn Maxwell tried to settle things in the middle, but Krunal Pandya got the success against him this time to put Australia in troubled waters. However, it was Ben McDermott, who played with the maturity to knock the runs on the board by finding occasional boundaries.

In the end, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Andrew Tye played breezy knocks to help Ben McDermott stretch the scorecard on the board. Once again, Khaleel Ahmed fared pretty poorly in the death overs of the game.
As far as the Indian bowling is concerned, Khaleel Ahmed and Bhuvneshwar Kumar bagged a couple of wickets each. Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav picked apiece alongside Krunal Pandya.
Just when the first innings is about to wrap up, the rain God once again intervened into the game. D/L method once again made its way to ask Indians chase 137 in a 19-over game. All in all, an intriguing chase is on the way at MCG.

Three Australian batsmen caught at deep point. Incredible to assume that you’d be hitting a six over point at MCG 🙈🤔 #AusvInd

With Raina not around, Manish Pandey not in the 11, Rahane not picked and Jadeja in and out, India's fielding isn't as sharp.

Cricket Australia should program games in drought-stricken farming regions. Rain would fall for sure. #AUSvIND

Whatever the format, Indians get too generous when it comes to lower order batsmen. The last two overs will again inflate the D/L method target. #INDvsAUS #AUSvIND> Hope the bastmen sort this out without much fuss.

Absolutely spot on description from @MClarke23 of Virat asking umpires to stop the game as rain falling heavily,the pitch will increase moisture and make it difficult for Indian batsman to bat later,he said.👏 #AUSvIND #TopCommentary
