India vs Australia 2019: 4th ODI, Mohali – Indian Players’ Rating; Well, it was a tough day for Indian National Cricket Team at Mohali. Ashton Turner and Peter Handscomb’s incredible knocks saw Shikhar Dhawan‘s brilliant 143 go in vain after chasing 359 runs with 13 balls to spare. Meanwhile, we came with the player ratings of the Indian Players.

It was an incredible day at the office for the stylish southpaw. The stylish southpaw showed his nonchalance with the willow at Mohali. Right from the first ball of the day, he looked in a great touch thus showing in his strokes all over the park. He played it really smart to make things fall in place for the Indian National Cricket Team. At one stage, he looked well set to get his maiden double century in ODI cricket. He finished with 143 off 115 balls. It would have been a 10/10 performance if he hasn’t spilt out the catch.

2. Rohit Sharma – 8.5/10

The vice-captain also played a brilliant knock in the 4th ODI game. After failing for quite a few games in the recent past, Rohit Sharma finally joined the party for India. Alongside Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma displayed his class by playing a scintillating knock. However, he failed to reach his well-deserving century but lost his wicket in nervous nineties. He scored 95 off 92 balls.

3. KL Rahul – 5/10

The right-handed batsman got the opportunity after a fine time, especially, in ODI games. He failed to make the most of the chance despite batting ahead of Virat Kohli. He also got a great platform to whack the ball away with openers adding 193 runs for the first wicket. Also, Rahul got a good start but failed to convert into a big one. He scored 26 off 31 balls.

4. Virat Kohli: 3/10

One of those rare bad days at the office for Virat Kohli. Not only he failed as a batsman but also he lost it with his captaincy as well. He failed to make the most of the massive runs on the board and failed to rotate his bowlers. However, the fielding section hasn’t supported him in any manner throughout the game.

5. Rishabh Pant – 1/10

The left-handed batsman Rishabh Pant replaced Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the side. He got a good chance to smash the ball with the stage is being set for him. He started his innings off in a flash by smashing boundaries more often than not. But, unfortunately, he couldn’t quite capitalise the start. Pant scored 36 off 24 balls. Coming to his wicketkeeping work, it was a disaster.

6. Vijay Shankar – 7/10

Once again, Vijay Shankar kept a brilliant show on the field for India. Firstly, he showed his skills with the bat by playing a cameo of 26 runs in 15 balls. Coming to the bowling, he did reasonably well by giving 29 runs off his 5 overs. All in all, it was a decent performance from the youngster.

7. Kedar Jadhav – 2/10

Back-to-back failures for Kedar Jadhav in the ODI series. After the collective man of the match award in the first ODI, he failed to replicate the show in a remaining couple of games. First, he failed to make use of the platform set by the openers and later, gave away 44 runs of his 5 overs.

8. Bhuvneshwar Kumar – 3/10

The experienced campaigner failed to deliver when it matters the most. Though he has been brilliant with the new ball, he failed to show his mojo at the death overs, which made India lose their game. Dew played its part as well.

9. Yuzvendra Chahal – 2/10

The youngster was ordinary in his return to the game. He failed to make things happen for India with his wrist bowling, especially, in the final 10 overs of the game. However, he gave few chances but his fielders and the wicketkeeper let him down.

10. Kuldeep Yadav – 6/10

The chinaman bowler was ordinary with the ball. Though he started brilliantly, he failed to repeat his magic against Peter Handscomb and the newbie Ashton Turner. However, he gave a much-needed breakthrough by bagging the wicket of Glenn Maxwell at the crucial stage.

11. Jasprit Bumrah – 3/10

Let’s start with a stunning six off the final ball in the Indian innings. Later, he bowled brilliantly to rattle the stumps of Shaun Marsh and then gave a major breakthrough by sending Usman Khawaja back to the hut. But, then, he failed to restrict the newbie Ashton Turner, who was on a song in the middle.
