10 highest individual scores when India faced Australia in ODIs
India vs Australia clashes by no means are short of entertainment. The heaps of runs, an array of wickets, the dives, the stares, the exchange of pleasantries are the few characteristics of an India vs Australia cricket match.
Batsmen from either of the nations have performed their hearts out in the past and the story is going to be no different in the years to come. Here are the top 10 knocks of Indo-Aussie ODI clashes.
#10 MS Dhoni 139*
Mahendra Singh Dhoni is arguably the second most celebrated cricketer of India after Sachin Tendulkar. When Australia toured India for a 7 match ODI series, there were just runs, runs and runs. Mohali hosted the third one day international where the Aussie skipper George Bailey won the toss and chose to chase on the beautiful afternoon of 19th October, 2013.
Australian bowlers didn't disappoint their skipper as India were reduced to 76/4. That's when the then Indian captain, MS Dhoni walked in to accompany his deputy.
Dhoni smashed a breath-taking knock of 139 runs against an Australian attack comprised of Mitchell Johnson, Clint McKay, Shane Watson and James Faulkner. India scored 303 runs by the end of 50th over. India were the favourites, that is until James Faulkner took on Ishant Sharma in the fag end of the innings.
Australia won the game with 4 wickets in hand.
