The Indian cricket team made history on Friday by winning it’s first bilateral ODI series on Australian soil. Virat Kohli’s men became the first country to return from Australia without losing a single series having won the Test series 2-1 and drawn the T20 Internationals 1-1.
The real star of the series was MS Dhoni who scored 87 in the last match while he got a good support from Kedar Jadhav who made 61 runs and Captain Virat Kohli who scored 46 runs as India chased down the 231-run target. After India’s historic in the bilateral ODI series, Virats’s wife Anushka Sharma took to Twitter and congratulated the Indian team, “What an unforgettable & outstanding tour it’s been !! Happy to have witnessed the historic victories by the men 👏 🙏 👏 HUGE congratulations 🇮🇳 And so proud of you my love @imVkohli ❤️ 😁” she posted.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni rekindled his love affair with final flourishes, anchoring India to their maiden bilateral ODI series triumph in Australia for a perfect finish to a historic trip Down Under here Friday. Virat Kohli’s men became the first country to return from Australia without losing a single series having won the Test series 2-1 and drawn the T20 Internationals 1-1.
From a dasher, to a finisher to finally the anchor in the last leg of his career, Dhoni 3.0 was in full flow during India’s successful chase of 231 in the third and final ODI on a sluggish Melbourne pitch after Yuzvendra Chahal set it up with a career-best 6 for 42.
“It wasn’t an easy wicket to bat on, so it was important to take the game deep,” said India skipper Virat Kohli in the post-match presentation. “Two set batsmen there who knew what to do and they got the job done. We’ve been here a long time, it’s been an amazing tour. We drew the T20 series, won the Test series and now the ODIs. If you had given me these results before the tour, I would have gladly taken it,” he added.
