Australia defeated India by 21 runs in the third and final ODI of the three-match series in Chennai to win the series 2-1. It was a superb show from the Australians as they bowled out India for 248 while defending 270 under hot and humid conditions at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. India though started on the front foot with the openers adding 65 runs before being separated. After losing both openers quickly, the chase was brought back on track with the pair of Virat Kohli and KL Rahul stitching a 69-run stand for the third wicket. Rahul was dismissed on 32 while Kohli scored a half-century. However, Adam Zampa broke the partnership with the wicket of Rahul. And then the run out of Axar Patel followed by the departure of Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav off consecutive deliveries from Ashton Agar turned the game on its head. India didn’t recover from those dismissals. Australia’s innings also progressed similar to India after they opted to bat first. However, their lower order did well to drag them to what turned out to be a winning total.
That’s it! Kuldeep Yadav has been run out on 6 and is the last India batter to be dismissed. The hosts have been bowled out for 248 in 49.1 overs while chasing 270. Australia win by 21 runs to clinch the three-match series 2-1. With that, they’ve also become the world’s top-ranked ODI team as well.
The possibility is still there but the two batters India have in the middle are Mohammed Siraj and Kuldeep Yadav. They need to score 22 off the final over now.
WICKET! Oh well, the crowd came alive with Mohammed Shami belting a six and four off successive deliveries from Marcus Stoinis. He goes for another big shot but this time it’s Stoinis who celebrates after cleaning him up. Shami scored 14 off 10. IND 243/9 in 47.5 overs, chasing 270.
Three singles in his final over. He finishes with 0/67. Not a good day on the field for him but he won’t mind since he has already played his part in the series with two fine performances in the first two ODIs. India 231/8 in 47 overs, chasing 270.
A fine spell from Adam Zampa comes to an end. He has taken four wickets in 10 overs and conceded just 45 runs. India 228/8 in 46 overs. They need 42 off 24 now with Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami in the middle.
WICKET! Googly from Adam Zampa. India need boundaries. Ravindra Jadeja charges forward for a big hit. Gets beaten in the air and a leading edge results in a simple catch to point. He scored 18. IND 225/8 in 45.1 overs, chasing 270.
Mitchell Starc hasn’t been in control today. Continues to misses his line and being wayward. Although just six runs in his ninth over but four of them came via wide. IND 225/7 in 45 overs, chasing 270.
WICKET! Huge breakthrough this one for Australia. And a big blow to India’s hopes now. Steve Smith brings back Adam Zampa into the attack and Hardik Pandya goes after the spinner – going for a slog but mishits, gets a leading edge and ends up being caught by Smith. He scored 40. IND 218/7 in 43.4 overs, chasing 270.
Ravindra Jadeja trying hard to manufacture shots but not succeeding. Australia continue to keep things tight. Just 3 runs in his 9th over. India now need 54 runs off 42 deliveries with four wickets in hand. Hardik Pandya on 39 off 38, Ravindra Jadeja 16 off 28.
Yes, literally. There were a few eagles hovering over the park for a few seconds halting the play. So two interruptions today – first by a dog and then eagles. 4 runs from the over of Marcus Stoinis. India 213/6 in 42 overs, chasing 270.
Both Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja are quick runners between the wickets. And it was evident when Jadeja glances one to fine leg with the pair taking a couple of quick runs before the throw came in. 5 runs from the over. IND 209/6 in 41 overs, chasing 270.
Hardik Pandya is served a short delivery by Marcus Stoinis and he feasts on it – pulled away to fine leg for a four which brings up India’s 200 in 39.2 overs. That should calm some nerves.
Just one run from the over of Sean Abbott. India need 71 off 66 now. Will Hardik Padya take his chances now or will he leave it for late? He’s batting on 31 off 30.
Adam Zampa brought back and concedes just two runs in this over. India 198/6 in 38 overs, chasing 270.
This hasn’t been Mitchell Starc’s day with the ball so far. He has conceded some runs and hasn’t taken a wicket so far. His eighth over results in 10 runs for India including three via wides. IND 196/6 in 37 overs, chasing 270. Would you believe it Australia were also 196/6 at the same stage?
India are down to their last recognised pair of batters. Hardik Pandya has started well having made 28 off 21 and is now joined by Ravindra Jadeja. India need 84 off 84 with four wickets remaining.
WICKET! My goodness. What wretched luck. Suryakumar Yadav has once again been dismissed for a golden duck. This time he has been cleaned up by Ashton Agar. Third time this series SKY has been dismissed off the first delivery he faced. Agar is on a hat-trick. Australia on top. IND 185/6 in 35.2 overs, chasing 270.
WICKET! Virat Kohli is out of luck now. He wanted to go over the infield and ends up finding the fielder to be caught on 54. he struck two fours and a six. Ashton Agar strikes. IND 185/6 in 35.1 overs, chasing 270.
Well both Hardik Pandya and Virat Kohli nearly holed out to David Warner at long-off off successive deliveries. Pandya first chipped one straight towards Warner but the ball fell short while Kohli struck it to the left of the fielder. 5 runs from the over. IND 177/4 in 34 overs, chasing 270.
Australia sprinted to 61/0 in their first 10 overs. Australia captain Steve Smith opted to bat first against India in the series decider today in Chennai. The tourists have made a couple of changes bringing in David Warner and Ashton Agar. On the other hand, the hosts have been unchanged. India started the three-match series with a hard fought win in Mumbai before Australia made a roaring comeback with a 10-wicket win. Smith’s decision was in contrast to the pitch report from Sanjay Manjrekar who predicted that the team winning the toss will opt to bowl first considering the surface will be a bit two-paced initially. India captain Rohit Sharma said he would have fielded anyway.
