In the ongoing second ODI between India and Australia, Mitchell Starc starred with the ball once again after shining in the fits ODI too. The left-arm pacer, took five crucial wickets as he dismissed skipper Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Kl Rahul, and Siraj and helped Australia restrict India to just 117 runs in 26 overs. Once again, India’s pathetic batting against the new ball was evident and as a result, fans started trolling them.
Twitter went berserk after witnessing the Indian batter’s inability to play the new ball.

Earlier, Australia skipper Steve Smith won the toss and decided to field first against the hosts.
