Rohit Sharma fails to break MS Dhoni's record after India suffer 9-wicket defeat against Australia in Indore – msnNOW

Rohit Sharma-led Team India suffered a big 9-wicket defeat at the bands of Australia in the Indore Test match. Given India’s dominance in the first two Test matches, the home team was expected to continue its winning run. But Australia bounced back strongly and went on to do the unthinkable.
The defeat in the 3rd Test match saw Rohit Sharma failing to break MS Dhoni’s record. As captain, Dhoni led India to wins in his first 4 matches in the top role. Rohit had also captained India to wins in his first 4 matches as the captain and a win in Indore would have seen him go past the legendary skipper.
But India suffered a defeat in the 3rd Test and Rohit failed to go past Dhoni. Both Dhoni and Rohit share the top spot. While Rohit failed to break Dhonni’s record, he can match his other record by leading India to a series win against Australia at home.
Dhoni-led Team India defeated Australia in 2013. Virat Kohli didn’t lead India to a series win at home but under him, they conquered Australia Down Under in 2020/21. Rohit can join Dhoni in the elite list by registering a series win over Australia.
The fourth Test match of the series will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. A win in the fixture will see India qualify for the final of the World Test Championship while a defeat will keep them waiting. The fixture is slated to be played from March 9 to 13.
India Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, and Australian Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, are likely to witness the opening day of the fixture. After the Test series, India will host Australia in a three-match ODI series.
Pat Cummins missed the third Test match due to personal reasons and is likely to miss the 4th Test as well. Steve Smith is leading the team in his absence.
