By India Today Sports Desk: Australia all-rounder Marcus Stoinis has admitted that the team didn’t sum uo the conditions well after their five-wicket loss to India in the Mumbai ODI.

The Aussies had got off to a perfect start in the first ODI thanks to Mitchell Marsh’s blistering knock. But the innings fell apart as the Indian bowlers led by Mohammed Shami made a comeback and bundled out the visitors for 188.

Despite a shaky start, KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja got India home in the end. Speaking after the loss, as quoted by, Stoinis said that Australia didn’t sum up the conditions well enough and didn’t score well.

“We didn’t sum the conditions up well enough and didn’t score enough,” said Stoinis.

“We’re experimenting with a few different combinations, playing eight batters.”

“We understand that if we’re going to play eight batters, we still need to play a certain way up until the 35th over or whatever it might be, and then when the time comes we can assert some authority on that with our back-end power hitters.”

Stoinis admitted that Australia did get carried away by Marsh’s innings of 81, thinking that the scoring needed to be higher than necessary.

“To an extent we might have gotten carried away watching Mitch bat and how well he struck them, and then thinking the score might need to be higher than what was necessary,” said Stoinis.

Stoinis said that the Australians needed to be a bit better with their techniques and KL Rahul’s batting and blueprint looked right on the track in the Wankhede Stadium.

“There was a bit in the wicket. We need to be a bit better with our techniques and figure out how we’re going to play that.”

“I think KL’s way of batting and blueprint looked about right,” said Stoinis.

Australia will now take on India in the second ODI in Vizag on Sunday.
