After seemingly putting a tough run of games behind them at the Gabba, the Australian batting has once again collapsed; this time against India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Being asked to bat first by Virat Kohli after the Indian captain won the toss, the Aussie skipper Aaron Finch fell off his very first ball nicking a Bhuvneshwar Kumar delivery to Rishabh Pant who once again donned the keeping gloves.

That was only a precursor to an innings marred by wickets at regular intervals and fiery Indian celebrations led by the left-arm duo of Khaleel Ahmed and Krunal Pandya.

This Twitter user wasn't impressed by Rishabh Pant's exploits behind the stumps. 

But the Indian supporters' joy was shortlived as Australia's lower order added quick runs before a rain interruption reminded them of their last game's heartbreak. 

This fan had a rather agrarian suggestion.
