During the second ODI of the series against Australia in Visakhapatnam, Team India suffered a disappointing batting collapse, managing a mere 117 runs before being bowled out. Mitchell Starc, the fast bowler, decimated the entire Indian top-order, with Shubman Gill being dismissed for a duck and Rohit Sharma, who had returned to the team after missing the first ODI, being dismissed cheaply at 13.
Suryakumar Yadav faced a first-ball dismissal once again, while KL Rahul, the star of India’s first ODI win, was also unable to make an impact, falling for just 9 runs. While Virat Kohli held one end and tried to resist, the wickets continued to fall on the other, and India was eventually bowled out within 26 overs.

There is A Big Quality Gap Between Indian Left-Armers And Mitchell Starc: Dinesh Karthik
While having a mid-innings chat on Cricbuzz, Dinesh Karthik, the wicketkeeper of Team India, discussed the struggles faced by the Indian batters against Mitchell Starc, the left-arm pacer of Australia.
The anchor mentioned a question from a fan who recalled how Australia had brought in a Ravichandran Ashwin look-alike to prepare for the Test series against India and suggested that India could do the same by bringing in left-arm pacers in the nets. However, Karthik expressed that the difference in quality between Starc and the left-arm pacers available in India is quite significant.

“First thing, the person who asked the question. I can promise you, India travels with a certain amount of bowlers for nets. There are enough left-arm medium pacers. It is one thing playing in the nets, the skill has goes behind a Shaheen Afridi, Trent Boult, and Mitchell Starc… it’s different boss.”
“If the bowler had the skill, he would be playing for India! Why would he be bowling in the nets? It is not an easy skill. Add to that, you playing international cricket… it’s a different ball game.”
Now that the ODI series is tied, both teams will be eager to clinch the final victory. Australia have undoubtedly been the superior team in the series and will be determined to even the score from the loss in the Test series against India and claim the trophy.
