The first T20I game between India and Australia at Vishakhapatnam was no less than a rollercoaster ride. The result swung like a pendulum on both sides but the low-scoring game was taken away by the Australians by three wickets. Jasprit Bumrah in the 19th over of the game snapped a couple of wickets in and escalated the chances of India winning the game. But Umesh Yadav who bowled the last over gave away a couple of fours and threw a wet blanket over Indian’s hopes to win the game. The pacer was trolled brutally for his poor bowling. The Australians chased a total of 126 runs. MS Dhoni Trolled on Twitter After India Goes Down Fighting in the 1st T20I Against Australia at Vizag.
In the last over the team needed 14 runs from an over. Yadav conceded a single in the first ball and then bowled a loose delivery. Richardson who was on the strike played it to deep mid-wicket for a four. The Aussies now needed 9 runs from four balls. In the very next delivery, he conceded a couple of runs leaving 7 to win off three and then gave away a single. Now, the visitors needed 6 runs off 2 balls where Yadav bowled a full toss which was sent away for a boundary. The Aussies needed a couple from 1 ball and they grabbed it quite easily. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that it was because of Yadav’s poor bowling in the last over, India lost the game.

Umesh Yadav must join the alternate career camp which Rahul Dravid is running and MSD should use twitter more. #AUSvIND

The only positive that India had today was KL Rahul coming back in form as he scored 50 runs from 36 balls. Even Virat Kohli at the presentation ceremony said that he would want KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant to get enough matches.
