Dhoni's advice and work overturned
– Australia needed 20 runs to win in the last two overs, in which Virat gave confidence to Shami and gave him a ball. It was 9 runs in this over, after which Australia needed to score 11 runs in the last over to win.
For the last over, Virat had two options in the form of Kedar Jadhav and Vijay Shankar. Virat wanted to give Jadhav the ball, because Shankar's last over proved to be very expensive. In the 10th over, he had 13 runs.
