4-0 Australia

Massive is the operative word here. Massive batting collapse.

India were cruising at 277/2 at one stage of the match with centurions Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan at the crease but now they have been bowled out for 323.

A 25-run defeat to go 4-0 down in the 5-match ODI series.

Australia: 348/8 (Aaron Finch 107, David Warner 93, Steven Smith 51; Ishant Sharma 4/77).
India: 323 (Virat Kohli 106, Shikhar Dhawan 126; Kane Richardson 5/68).

Can this happen?

As Harsha Bhogle points out in commentary - India have slipped from a commanding 277/1 to 294/6.
