Mumbai: The Indian Cricket Team somehow defeated Australia in the first ODI match played at the Wankhede Stadium on Friday. The bowlers of Team India did not allow the visiting team to score big and piled on the visiting team for 188 runs. But India had a lot of trouble in achieving this goal. India had lost their wickets in the beginning. But the innings of KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja had won the team. When Team India was in trouble, Virat Kohli was seen getting angry at Hardik Pandya.
When the Australian team was dismissed cheaply, it seemed that the Indian team would easily win this match, but it did not happen. Team India had lost its three wickets for 39 runs only. After this Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul were engaged in handling the team. Then Pandya had done such a thing that Kohli got angry.

angry about free hit
Pandya and Rahul were trying to handle Team India. Meanwhile, in the 18th over, Marcus Stoinis showed his aggressive attitude to Pandya. On the fourth ball of the same over, Stoinis took his leg out of the crease and bowled a no ball. On this, Pandya got to play a free hit. The batsman cannot be out on a free hit and that is why the batsman tries to score maximum runs on this ball, but Pandya missed the boundary on this ball. He was able to take only one run on the ball of Stoinis. At this time Kohli was sitting in the dressing room. And when Pandya could not take a boundary off Stoinis’ short ball, Kohli got angry. Sitting in the dressing room, he expressed displeasure over Pandya not taking boundaries on free hits.
In his next over i.e. in the 20th over, Stoinis gave the fifth blow to India by dismissing Pandya. Pandya returned to the pavilion on the second ball of this over. Facing 31 balls, he scored 25 runs with the help of three fours and a six. Pandya was captaining the team in this match as Rohit Sharma did not play in the first ODI.
