Sakshi Dhoni Posts Adorable Message After India Win ODI Series In Australia
Sakshi Dhoni congratulated Team India after their win over Australia in the third and final T2oI on Friday.
The tour of Australia ended on a historic note for Virat Kohli and his men. After drawing the T20Is and winning the Test series, India beat Australia by seven wickets in the third ODI to win the series 2-1.
Batting first, Australia were all out for a modest 230. Yuzvendra Chahal starred with the ball, picking up a career-best 6 for 42 to put India well on top. Asked to bat first, Australia were off to a poor start once again, losing their openers – Alex Carey and Aaron Finch – for just 27 runs on the board. In-form duo Shaun Marsh and Usman Khawaja then shared 73-runs for the third wicket to put the innings back on track.
However, Chahal dismissed both of them to reduce Australia to 101 for 4. Peter Handscomb waged a lone battle from thereon, scoring 58 but failed to little support as Australia were all out for just 230.

In reply, India were off to a poor start too, losing Rohit Sharma for just 5. Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli then steadied the ship, taking the score past 50 before Marcus Stoinis dismissed the opener. At the time of Dhawan’s dismissal, the score was just 59 in the 17th over. With Australian bowlers giving nothing away, Kohli and MS Dhoni were finding it tough to accelerate. The game was then thrown wide open when Jhye Richardson accounted for Kohli to reduce India to 113 for 3 in the 30th over.
However, the ever-green Dhoni scored his third consecutive fifty of the series and shared an unbeaten partnership of 121 runs with Kedar Jadhav to take India home in the last over. Dhoni scored 87 while Jadhav scored 61.
Following the win, Sakshi Dhoni, wife of MS Dhoni, took to Instagram to hail the team, writing:
