Veteran Australian cricketer Shane Warne lashed out at the Kangaroo team after Australia’s biggest One Day Internationals (ODI) defeat at the hands of England in the third ODI of the five-match series at the Trent Bridge, Nottingham, on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, England thrashed Australia by 242 runs. Batting first, the English team posted a record total of 481 runs for six wickets in their allotted 50 overs. England’s total against Australia is also the highest score in the history of men’s cricket.

After witnessing the biggest victory of England in ODI cricket, former Aussie legend Shane Warne took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, and wrote, “Just woke up and saw the score in England. What the hell happened over there & what is going on boys ? Gulp…..”.

 

Not just Shane Warne but former Australian captain Michael Clarke was also stunned after seeing the scoreboard of the match.

 

The year 2018 has not been easy and good for the fans of Australia. Though they started the year on a positive note by winning the Ashes 4-0, but after that things have gone downhill for a team that was ‘the best in the world’ not long ago.

Months after Ashes victory, Australian team was hit by ball tampering scandal, after which their skipper Steve Smith, his deputy David Warner and young batsman Cameron Bancroft were banned for a long time. The ball-tampering scandal had taken place on the third day of Cape Town Test against South Africa.

Australia’s then coach Darren Lehmann had stepped down from his position as the head coach of the team and was replaced by Justin Langer.
