India vs Australia: Fairly Balanced Reactions

When India lost the 2003 Cricket World Cup final to Australia, the knives were out and sharpened by the media. As a result, we never heard the name Dinesh Mongia ever again. That however, was over a decade ago. This time, instead of a media outburst, many Indian cricket fans seem to be giving MS Dhoni and his young Indian side, pats on their backs. Whether it is due to the poor showing in the previous tour of Australia or the fact that they were not favourites at the start of the tournament is immaterial.

Having trashed Bangladesh in the quarterfinal, India set up a monumental clash with Australia. The ‘mauka’ ads were back, most of them in favour of India. However, as it has been put ‘A billion hearts were broken’ as some terrible shot-making and poor death bowling cost the Indians dearly. Steven Smith was adjudged the Man of the Match for his match-winning century.

That said, here are the top tweets of the day, following India’s 95 run loss to co hosts Australia.
