Team India is having a time to remember in Australia in the ongoing tour. Unlike the previous tours when the hosts thoroughly dominated the visitors, the tables have turned around this time. Barring a few occasions, it has been a case of one-way traffic in favour of India in the ongoing tour. It started on a forgettable note for the Men in Blue as they lost the first T20I. But bounced back quickly and won the third game to level the series after the second was washed out.

In the succeeding Test series, India was all over the hosts. The world number one Test side dominated the hosts in all the departments to win the series 2-1. The series could have ended 3-1 in India’s favour but rain and bad light helped Australia escape with a draw in the last Test. The win ended India’s 71-year wait for the first Test series win on the Australian soil. Since then, the players have been partying hard to celebrate the historic feat.

But it looks like not every Indian is having a good time Down Under. Veteran commentator Harsha Bhogle, on Saturday, took to Twitter to express his anger after seemingly experiencing an unpleasant situation in Sydney.

Tagging the official Twitter handle of Sydney and Australia, the ace commentator tried to draw their attention on the issue, he wrote: “Hey @sydney_sider @Australia, you might want to have a word with the policemen at the drop-off point at the #SCG today. They are rude and unbecoming of your friendly country.”

He then found some support from a local who also share a similar incident.

In reply, Bhogle, who is in Sydney for the first ODI, tweeted:

Australia bounce back:

Meanwhile, the hosts bounced back from the defeat in the Test series to beat India by 34 runs in the first ODI at the SCG and take the lead in the three-match series. Batting first, Australia piled up 288 for 5 before restricting India to 254 for 9 despite Rohit Sharma’s majestic ton.
