Virat Kohli-led Team India were battered in the first ODI of three-match series against Australia at Sydney. Batting first, the Aussies posted an imposing 374 on the board with tons from skipper Aaron Finch and Steve Smith. India’s much-famed bowling line-up came a cropper with Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal and Navdeep Saini going for plenty, and only Mohammed Shami making an impact with his three wickets.
