Australia defeated India by 66 runs in the first ODI cricket match. Michael Holding said in the YouTube chat show ‘Holding Nothing Back’, ‘It was difficult for India to chase the target. India missed Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

He said, “Dhoni usually lands in the lower half in the batting order and controls while chasing the target. In his team, India has chased the target well in the past. India has a very talented batsman who specializes in playing strokes. Hardik played a brilliant innings but still India needed a player like Dhoni. Not only in skills but also in terms of attitude.
Holding said that Team India (Team India) was full of confidence while chasing Dhoni. He said, ‘They were not afraid of fielding by winning the toss because they knew what MS Dhoni (MS Dhoni) could do and how capable his batsmen were.’
He said, ‘Dhoni never used to get nervous while chasing the target. He knew his potential and did not get distracted. Whoever batted together kept talking to him and helping him. India’s batting order is fantastic but Dhoni’s point of chasing the target was different.
Holding also criticized India’s poor fielding. He said, ‘SCG is a big ground but the fielding of Indians was very average. The ball went over the fielders’ head but did not hit a six. Should not have been so far from the borderline.
