ODI series
India, Oz teams leave city
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, October 20
Indian and Australian cricket teams today left the city at noon from their hotel in Sector 35. Last night’s defeat of the Indian team at PCA, Mohali has however left the Indian fans disappointed. Many in the city are not ready to believe that India can face such a brazen defeat especially after an electrifying victory in Jaipur.

City resident Bhupesh Gupta said the Indian team must improve its bowling.

“Bad bowling performance in the Mohali match is a warning that in case bowlers will not perform, there is no chance India can win this series. The last night defeat was definitely not expected. It is a time for introspection for Indian team now," he said.

Another city-based cricket fan Ashish said even the bowling performance in Jaipur ODI let the team down. It was the batsmen who saved the day for India in that match.

“The non-performers should not be tolerated now otherwise we will face a heavy defeat from Aussies at home."

After Mohali, the bandwagon has moved to Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s hometown Ranchi where the fourth ODI of the seven match series will be played on October 23.
