Former Indian cricketer and present commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has been trolled recently on the social media for his tweet. It was his opinion based tweet during the recent Hyderabad ODI between India and Australia.

After completion of the T20I series, the host side India and the visiting side Australia have started to play the five-match ODI series from last Saturday (2 March). In that first ODI of the series at Hyderabad, India won the match by six wickets with ten balls remaining.

However, Australia came to play that ODI with full of confidence as they earlier won the T20I series in this tour by 2-0. After winning the toss in Hyderabad ODI, the visiting side decided to bat first.

Though the skipper and opener Aaron Finch lost his wicket without opening his account, the other top-order batsmen gave the excellent start. Another opener Usman Khawaja and the no.3 batsman Marcus Stoinis had the 87-run partnership for the second wicket.

But once that partnership was broken, the visiting side came under pressure. Once, Australia was struggling on 173/6. In the late of the innings, Alex Carey and Nathan Coulter-Nile played the crucial role to stretch the scoreboard to the fighting total. They had the 62-run partnership for the seventh-wicket as Australia scored 236/7 in 50 overs.

Among the Aussie batsmen, Usman Khawaja scored the highest runs of 50 off 76 balls. Meanwhile, Marcus Stoinis (37 runs) and Glenn Maxwell (40 runs) also played some crucial innings. In the end, Alex Carey remained not out on 36 runs, and Nathan Coulter-Nile scored 28 runs.

In reply, India lost their opener Shikhar Dhawan at very early (0 in 1 ball). However, another opener Rohit Sharma and the skipper Virat Kohli provided the positive start with a 76-run partnership for the second wicket. Rohit Sharma scored 37 runs, and Virat Kohli played the 44-run innings.

India faced a slight batting collapse after Australia broke that partnership. From 99/4, MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav calmly guided the host side to the victory. They had the 141-run unbroken partnership for the fifth wicket that destroyed Australia’s hope.

Both batsmen played the half-century knocks in that innings to secure the game. MS Dhoni remained not out on 59 off 72 balls. On the other hand, the Player of the Match Kedar Jadhav was not out on 81 off 87 balls. They helped India to reach the target in 48.2 overs after losing four wickets.

Sanjay Manjrekar’s tweet

He tweeted, “Have always found 50 overs cricket 10 overs too long.”
