Team India lost due to these four reasons, Australia lead 1-0 in the series.

  • IND vs AUS 1st T20I Australia defeated India by 4 wickets in the first T20 match played in Mohali. With this win, Australia have taken a 1-0 lead in the 3-match series.

Before the World Cup, in the first match of the 3-match series against Australia, India’s death bowling was exposed once again and the team could not even defend the huge target of 208 runs and Australia scored 6 wickets with 4 balls to spare. Gained by losing. This is a cause of concern for the team as it is not the first time this has happened. Earlier in the Asia Cup too, the team had failed to defend the target of more than 160 twice.

The team could not win first against Pakistan and then against Sri Lanka, batting first and every time poor bowling in the death overs was responsible. Talking about India’s defeat, there are many things that the team needs to work on.

Losing two wickets in the powerplay

For the past few months, the team has been playing with an aggressive approach. But its side effects are also coming to the fore. In the Mohali T20 against Australia also, the team lost the wickets of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma within 5 overs due to which the team was deprived of a good start.

Poor bowling in the death over

This is the third time in the last one month that Team India’s bowlers have failed to defend the big total. Here too, when Australia needed 40 runs from 18 balls, Harshal 22 in the 18th over and Bhuvneshwar Kumar spent 16 runs in the 19th over and let the match go smoothly.

Paying the brunt of bad fielding

The team’s poor fielding was seen in the match against Australia. Although there is some problem in catches due to the lighting on the Mohali ground, but such mistakes have no place at the international level. In the eighth over of the match, Axar Patel dropped a simple catch off Hardik Pandya’s ball. In the very next over, Smith’s catch was dropped by KL Rahul off the ball of Axar Patel. At the same time, in 17.2 overs of the match, Herschelle Patel left an important catch on Tim David’s own ball.
