Melbourne: Jun 5, 2013
 
Former Australia cricketer Dean Jones went on a rant against the Australian team after their 243-run humiliation at the hands of India in the warm-up fixture prior to the ICC Champions Trophy.
 
Australia had started the game well, restricting India to 55 for five before Dinesh Karthik (146 not out) and captain MS Dhoni (91) shared a 211-run stand to take them to a commanding 308 for six. In reply, Australia were bowled out for a paltry 65.
