Dean Jones trolled for his ‘India needed rain to win’ tweet – Dean Jones’ tweet did not go well with Team India fans.
India won the the first match of the 5-ODI series against Australia on Sunday. While India made 281 thanks to Hardik Pandya and MS Dhoni, they had to defend a total of 164 in 21 overs after the match was curtailed due to rain.
They defeated Steve Smith’s men by 26 runs in the end.
Disappointed with the defeat, former Australia cricketer Dean Jones took to Twitter and wrote, “So I see India needed a bit of rain to win that game. Ok … bring on Game 2.”
