Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh took a dig at the Australian team, tweeting that the days of Australia producing good quality batsmen are over after India beat Australia in Indore by 5 wickets. The Turbanator also joked that Australia needed Michael Clarke to come out of retirement to help the team.
With a third consecutive victory in Indore, India took an unassailable 3-0 lead in the ongoing
In the 3rd ODI, Australia's batting finally seemed to have clicked as David Warner (42), Aaron Finch (124), and Steve Smith (63) all got off to good starts and a score of 350 appeared to be on the cards. However, with the last ten overs yielding just 59 runs, the visitors were contained to a score of only 293 runs.
Seeing the fall of Australia and the disappointing performance of the middle order again, Harbhajan Singh, on Twitter, told Michael Clarke to come out of retirement to play for Australia again due to the lack of any quality batsmen in the current squad.

Harbhajan's tweet was in response to Michael Clarke's tweet in which he said that Australia were 40 runs short.
