India's wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MSD) was replaced by young bloke Rishabh Pant in the fourth ODI against Australia. Pant gave a decent performance with bat scoring 34 off 26 balls but failed miserably with the gloves.
One of the reasons India lost the fourth game despite scoring a mammoth 358, was poor fielding, especially by Pant.
The youngster missing a few clear-cut chances, with one being trying to stump a batsman in Dhoni's no-look flick. His missed chance actually turned the game in Australia's favour.
It turned out to be a dismal day for India in the field despite the heroics of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma. The opening duo's record partnership, which includes a sensational 143, had helped India post a mammoth target.
Australia chase down a record-breaking target of 359 runs, making it the highest ever total that Indian team failed to defend in its ODI history, losing the game by four wickets.
