India-Austrailia rivalry has always been known to deliver some competitive cricket for the fans. However, the ongoing limited-overs series between the two nations has been pretty disappointing for the kangaroos.
After the humiliating loss of Australia in the 3rd ODI, premier India spinner Harbhajan Singh had tweeted, “Mate u need to come out of your retirement and start playing again I think. Era of Aussies producing top batsmans is over I feel.No quality.”

However, Michael Clarke took some time to reply to that tweet, as he replied on Monday evening, he tweeted, “I have only just seen this buddy. These old legs of mine are enjoying the air-conditioned commentary box. Aussies have some work to do!”

After the win in the Indore ODI, India became no 1 in the ODIs as they completely outplayed the Aussies in the series so far. India was chasing a decent target of 293 runs, but the ease with which Hardik Pandya, Ajinkya Rahane, and Rohit Sharma scored the fifties for India and their innings was a treat to watch. The real reason for Australian dismal performance is that they lost the opportunities to win on crucial junctures and that led India to take a 3-0 lead in the series.
