Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and others rage on Twitter in front of Mitchell Starc’s power in 2nd ODI

Like the first ODI in Mumbai, Mitchell Starc was once again in India’s top order in the second ODI at the KS Raja Reddy Stadium in Visakhapatnam. Starc, who took three wickets in the first ODI, dismissed Shubman Gill, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav and KL Rahul inside the powerplay to leave India five wickets down. As Rohit and co. Starc came under attack in Visakhapatnam as fans of the Indian cricket team trolled the players for their inability to deal with the new ball.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:

Earlier, Australia captain Steve Smith won the toss and decided to field. The tourists, who lost the first match of the three-match series, have made two changes in Visakhapatnam, where it rained overnight and more rain is expected during the day.

Nathan Ellis comes in for Glenn Maxwell, who has pulled “a bit of soreness”, and wicketkeeper Alex Carey is back in for Josh Inglis.

Rohit, captain of all formats of India, missed the opener due to personal reasons and returned in place of opener Ishan Kishan as the hosts look to win the three-match series.

Spin bowling all-rounder Akshar Patel has come in place of fast bowler Shardul Thakur.

Both the teams are practicing for the ODI World Cup to be held in India later this year.
