In the first ODI match against Australia at Mumbai, Indian captain Virat Kohli experimented with his batting order, giving chance to KL Rahul to bat at No.3. Though it cost to Indian skipper as he lost his wicket early after scoring just 16 runs. The Indian cricket lovers are not happy with the decision of the skipper, sharing their disappointment on Twitter.

Australian players were successful in bundling out the Indian batsmen at 255 runs. Rohit Sharma lost his wicket early to Starc at 10 runs. After Sharma lost his wicket, KL Rahul came to bat at no.3. Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul set the partnership of 121 runs for the second wicket. Unlucky Rahul (47 runs) lost his wicket at three runs ahead of his half-century, on the ball of Ashton Agar. He was the second-highest scorer for India in the match. Consecutively, Dhawan lost his wicket to the speedster Pat Cummins after scoring the most runs for the team – 74 runs off 91 balls.

The team got unstable when Virat Kohli, who came out to bat at number four, managed to score just 16 runs. His decision to change his batting position backfired him. Though this selection of order was selfless, it costed India’s performance. It has brought a lot of criticism from fans on experimenting the playing XI against Australia.
