Partnerships are crucial and that’s something we failed to do: Indian captain Rohit Sharma on losing the ODI series

The Australian cricket team won the third and final one-day international (ODI) series against India by a score of 2-1 on Wednesday, March 22nd, at Chepauk Stadium in Chennai. The Australian team was outstanding in this three-game series in India. Australia are the new No.1 team in the ODIs overtaking India after a series win over them. This will boost Aussies’ confidence especially when the ODI World Cup is very near.

They never looked like visitors as they dominated this attractive Indian side. The performance of the Australians stunned Rohit Sharma’s men. Australia’s Steven Smith breaks India’s four-year unbeaten streak in the bilateral series.

Rohit Sharma | India captain: I don’t think it was too many runs. We didn’t bat well. Partnerships are crucial and that’s something we failed to do today. You are brought up playing in these type of wickets, it’s important you apply. After the start, it was important for one batter to carry on and take the game deep. It just didn’t happen. Lot of takeaways. We can take a lot of positives from the nine ODIs since January. We need to understand where we need to improve. It’s a collective failure, we can take a lot of learnings from this series. Credit to the Australians. Both the spinners applied the pressure and so did their seamers.
