4 Big Takeaways For India From ODI Series Against Australia; Team India spectacularly ended the home season on Sunday at Bengaluru. They comfortably thrashed Aaron Finch-led side to seal the 3-match ODI series. After being knocked down in Wankhede, the Virat Kohli-led side showed their calibre in a remaining couple of games to pocket the series.
Apart from clinching the trophy, the Indian team have witnessed quite a few positive aspects in the 3-match series. Players have utilised the opportunity to perfection to make things fall in place for the team and their respective careers. Highlighting the same, we have figured out four big takeaways for India from the series. Have a look:
4. Shikhar Dhawan’s form:
The stylish southpaw was under the pump ahead of the series against Australia. Following the exit from World Cup with an injury, Shikhar Dhawan has never been on the headlines for positive news. KL Rahul’s rise in his absence further stretched his troubles to cement his position in the playing XI.
He was even criticised for his slow batting in the shorter format of the game against Sri Lanka. However, he took Australia Series by a storm. Shikhar Dhawan was the top-scorer and the only player to cross half-century mark in the first ODI loss at Wankhede Stadium.
Dhawan followed it up with a blistering 96-run knock in the second ODI when the team scored 340 runs on the board. He was the man of the series candidate but unfortunately, he sustained an injury in the final ODI game, which saw him stay away from his willow. All in all, he was a big takeaway for India, as Shikhar Dhawan has always been a scintillating performer for India.
