So Proud Of You My Love, Says Anushka Sharma As Virat Kohli Leads India To Historic ODI Series Win In Australia
Anushka Sharma congratulated Team India for winning the ODI series against Australia on Friday.
India’s tour of Australia ended on a perfect note as they beat Australia by seven wickets in the third ODI to seal the series 2-1. With the win, India registered their first ever bilateral ODI series win Down Under.
India needed 231 to win the match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground which they managed to do in 49.2 overs with MS Dhoni remaining unbeaten on 87 while Kedar Jadhav scored an unbeaten 61. Chasing 231, India were in trouble after losing Virat Kohli with the scoreboard reading only 113 after 30 overs. However, Dhoni and Jadhav were involved in a 121-run unbeaten partnership for the fourth wicket as India chased down the total quite easily in the end.
Earlier in the game, the bowlers did a fine job to bowl out Australia for just 230 inside 49 overs. Yuzvendra Chahal starred with the ball, picking up a record 6 wickets for 42 runs, the best bowling figures by a spinner in Australia in the 50-over format. Chahal beat the previous record held by current India coach Ravi Shastri to become the first spinner to take 6 wickets in an ODI Down Under.
The win also saw Virat Kohli become the first Indian captain to win Test and ODI trophies on the same tour in Australia. This is also the first time in history that India will leave Australia without losing a series. India had drawn the T20I series 1-1 before beating the Aussies in Tests 2-1.
