Australia lost half there side for just 86 runs, despite that the visitors let the hosts get close to the score of 200 runs. For Australia, Travis Head scored a brilliant half-century and added an important partnership of 50 plus with Pat Cummins for the 7th wicket.
Today, 3 big mistakes were seen on behalf of the Indian team, if they had not made these mistakes, then the Aussies team might have been dismissed under 150 runs.

1. Lack of All-rounder:

Spin bowler Ravichandran Ashwin was the pick of the bowler for India and dominated the Aussie batsmen. Ashwin picked 3 wickets but he did not get support to put more pressure from the other side.
In such a situation, Team India lacked an all-rounder like Jadeja in the playing eleven, or even if Vihari was picked, he would have been handy in the spin-friendly pitch along with Ashwin.

2. Once again Indian bowlers struggled to dismiss the lower order:

It was seen on the tour of England that the Indian bowlers were showing the top order batsmen the way to pavilion easily, but struggled to dismiss the tailenders. Same things happened again against Australia and allowed the Aussie lower order batsmen to make runs.

3. Incorrect use of the new ball:

Indian skipper Kohli handed a new ball to Bumrah, though he was able to take the wicket with the new ball. But Bumrah is more effective when he comes as a change bowler.
If the new ball was given to the strike bowlers, Shami and Ishant, the result might have been more favourable to the Indian team.
