🇮🇳IND-AUS🇦🇺: Smith and Bailey overshadow Rohit ‼

After Rohit Sharma(171*) and Virat Kohli(91) put up a 207 run partnership for 🇮🇳 in the first innings, Steven Smith(149) and George Bailey(112) came up with a double century partnership of their own👏 in reply(237) to power Australia to a 5⃣ wicket win in the first ODI of the 5⃣ match series at a surprisingly 'batsman friendly' Perth😳. India's score of 309-3 was knocked off by the Aussies with 4⃣ balls to spare. Smith and Bailey were in cruise control✌ throughout as they cleverly rotated strike with one's and two's in the middle overs to ease any pressure off them👌. Ashwin was disappointing despite picking up 2⃣ late wickets as the 🇮🇳 spinners found it hard to contain both the batsmen. By the time Bailey perished to Ashwin, it was too late🕐 to impact the match. Interestingly, this is the first time 2⃣ double hundred partnerships have occurred in a match😳
