Here are some of the records broken in India Vs Australia ODI Series.
Pulverised by Australia in the fourth ODI, a raucous batting display by Handscomb and Turner took Australia not only to a series-levelling win but also saw India concede its biggest ever defeat in terms of the target set. With the 359 run target made by Australia, this was the first time any side had ever managed to take off a 350 plus total of India, becoming the highest total the home side have been unable to defend unsuccessfully.
The fifth highest run chase overall in cricket, Australia’s record-breaking performance earned reverence throughout the cricketing fraternity. It was, in particular, a disappointing day for Chahal as well whose 80 runs off 10 overs saw him concede the third highest runs by an Indian spinner in ODIs.
