Rohit Sharma (133), MS Dhoni (51), Richardson (4/26)Jhye Richardson, playing just his fourth one day international on Saturday, was adjudged the man-of-the-match for his effort of 26 for four in the first ODI between India and Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground.The 23-year-old Western Australian took the important wickets of Virat Kohli, Ambati Rayudu, Dniesh Karthik and Ravindra Jadeja to achieve his career-best figures.At the post match presentation, Richardson said that the wicket of Kohli is one that he will be treasuring for sometime.”They [India] are a quality side. Credit to India as they gave us a run for our money in those middle overs. For a period they had the game under control. When you have a team three down early, it becomes difficult to bounce back,” Richardson said after accepting his man-of-the-match award.Exciting quick Jhye Richardson is the @GilletteAU Player of the Match with his 4-26 from 10 overs! #AUSvIND (@cricketcomau) January 12, 2019″I am very happy to get [Kohli’s] wicket, I’ll treasure it for a while but more than that, I’m happy with the win.”As a bowling unit, we are clear about our plans, doing our homework and research, being professional out there. I think it was about assessing the conditions more than anything else. I didn’t need to bowl the slower balls earlier but felt like bashing the wicket was quite difficult to score off. In the end, it became easier to bowl the slower deliveries as the ball got softer,” Richardson added.advertisementThis is how he picked up the wickets -3.3 Overs, Kohli – OUT! GONE! Look at the way the Aussies are celebrating, that will tell you how big a wicket this is. The chase master, Virat Kohli is out of here. He has hit that right off the middle but straight to the fielder at square leg who is positioned a little shorter than a normal square leg. Not the best of deliveries that by Jhye, it is on his pads, Kohli flicks it nicely but straight to the man at square leg. Stoinis there takes it on the second attempt.3.5 Overs, Rayudu – OUT! Three reds and India lose their third. Rayudu is the man taking the long walk back and takes the review with him. It pitches around middle and off and comes back in. Rayudu tries to defend but is done in by the movement. It hits the front pad. A huge appeal then follows, the umpire gives it a thought and then raises his finger. After a chat with Rohit, Rayudu reviews. Replays show the on-field call is the right one.39.2 Overs, Karthik – OUT! Richardson it is once again, his third wicket. It is slightly short and it skids through. Karthik comes down the track and he looks to pull. He though ends up getting a bottom edge as the ball does not bounce as much as he expects it to. The ball deflects onto the stumps. Rohit is disappointed at the other end, Karthik too walks back disgusted.44.1 overs, Jadeja – OUT! In the air… taken! Four-fer for Jhye. The men from Perth Scorchers are doing it for Australia. It is bowled short and outside off, Jadeja goes for the upper cut and also hits it well. It though does not go as fine as he wanted it to. Shaun Marsh at deep point, settles under it and takes an easy one. Rohit continues losing partners at one end. 76 from 35.Chasing Australia’s 288 for four, India stumbled to 254 for 9 to concede the match by 34 runs. The Asutralians, fitted in their retro canary jersies became the first team in the history if the sport to win 1000 matches.Also Read | Rohit Sharma equals Sourav Ganguly’s record for 22 ODI hundredsAlso Read | MS Dhoni hits 1st ODI fifty since December 2017Also Read | Bhuvneshwar Kumar 4th slowest Indian to reach 100 ODI wicketsAlso Read | Rayudu comes on to bowl, questions raised on the legality of his actionlast_img read more
