Australia had a very good first over as Aaron Hardie bowled a maiden. After that, it was the phase for the young Indian pair of Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ruturaj Gaikwad to dominate. Matthew Wade’s plan worked to perfection as he brought Hardie back into the attack. He was rewarded with Jaiswal’s wicket which provided the important breakthrough the Aussies needed. Tanveer Sangha was the next bowler to strike as he dismissed Shreyas Iyer followed by Ben Dwarshuis who dismissed Suryakumar Yadav in the next over. This put Australia back in the game and on a strong foot. Tanveer Sangha struck again at a crucial time as he dismissed Ruturaj Gaikwad just when he was about to look dangerous. However, they were soon put under pressure as Rinku Singh and Jitesh Sharma started attacking the bowlers. Ben Dwarshuis gave his team another breather as he sent Jitesh Sharma and Axar Patel back to the pavilion towards the closing stages of his spell. Jason Behrendorff was finally rewarded for his tight bowling with the wicket of the dangerous Rinku Singh followed by the tail end of the Indian batting in the last over.
It was an explosive start to the innings from the Indians. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ruturaj Gaikwad built a good partnership and scored some quick runs. It was until Jaiswal had to depart and the momentum was broken. Shreyas Iyer came in but he too was sent back early followed by the Indian captain, Suryakumar Yadav. A couple of wickets in quick succession hurt the Indians but Ruturaj Gaikwad and Rinku Singh put up a strong partnership to stabilise the innings again. Gaikwad also was sent back but not after he had done his part. Jitesh Sharma was the next man in and he switched gears immediately which allowed Rinku Singh to also free his hands. Jitesh Sharma was dismissed after his power-packed cameo which gave his team some important runs. He was soon followed by Axar Patel who too was dismissed in the same over. Rinku Singh too was sent back in the next over which again put India in a tight spot. The tail end of the Indian batting lineup also was dismissed in the last over as they ended their innings at 174 at the loss of 9 wickets.
Unlike the previous matches of this series, this does not look like a 200 pitch and the Indians have done well to bat aggressively towards the end. The Aussies looked like the stronger team until the drinks break but after it, the Indians bounced back strongly. However, cricket is a game of twists as Australia struck quite a few times towards the closing stages hence restricting the Indians to 174.
19.6 overs (1 Run) OUT! RUN OUT! Fuller than a length at the leg stump. Flicks it towards deep square leg and runs hard to complete a second run. A good throw at Wade and the keeper did ran fast to come near the stumps. Wade collected and whipped off the bails before Ravi Bishnoi could make home. TV umpire reviews it and watches that Bishnoi is short by almost a feet. So, just a single and a wicket in the ultimate ball of the innings. India finish with 174/9 on the board!
