338/9 (50.0/50)
Australia beat India by 51 runs
That's all from this game! Australia comprehensively wrap up the series with one game in hand and they would look to complete a whitewash. India, on the other hand, have a lot of work to do, particularly in the bowling and the fielding department. They would want to get a win as ICC ODI Super League points are up for grabs. The third ODI is on Wednesday, 2nd December 2020 which will start at 1440 local (0340 GMT). Join us for that. Until then, cheers and take care.
Aaron Finch, the Australian skipper, says that it was a perfect performance with the bat. Adds that it has just been the preparation and is very pleased to wrap up the series with one game to spare. Adds that he has no idea about how David Warner is. Goes onto say that they will have to wait and see about Warner's availability. Tells that they wanted to set up the foundation for the guys coming in after him. Tells that Warner played well and Smith played out of his skins twice in a row. States that Henriques was terrific with the ball as he used his cutters really well and used all of his experience. Goes onto say that they took a cue of Pandya's bowling as to how to bowl on this wicket.
Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, says that they have been completely outplayed. Adds that they have not been effective with the ball and they did not bowl in one area long enough. Tells that they had to keep attacking from ball one and with the bowlers that Australia have, they needed to put pressure on them. Adds that he asked Hardik if he can bowl and he replied that he can bowl 2 or 3 overs. States that Australia used the dimensions really well. Mentions that he was telling Rahul that if they took the game till the 45th over, they would be in with a chance. Says that if the partnership between him and Shreyas would have been longer, things could have been different.
Steven Smith, the MAN OF THE MATCH, says that he did not give many chances in this game and he felt good. Adds that Finch and Warner gave them a solid foundation and Maxi finished off really well. States that it is about summing up the conditions and they needed to score big totals against India as they have a strong batting line-up. Goes onto say that he tried to whack the ball too hard in the Indian T20 League and he is just trying to play nice cricket shots. Tells that it is nice to score runs for the team again.
Earlier, in the game, Australia were top notch with the bat in hand. Aaron Finch and David Warner gave them a blistering start before Steven Smith did what he does best, score runs for fun. He scored his second century of the series and he along with Maxwell in the end helped Australia post 389 on the board. The bowling from India was better than the first game but were inconsistent. They bowled too many loose deliveries and they were punished. Hardik Pandya was the best bowler on show for them while Chahal and Saini had another off day. In the end, the target proved a very steep one and they fell short by some margin. Stay tuned for the presentation ceremony.
India were in the game throughout with the bat but the required run rate kept on creeping up and in the end, they were left with too much to do. They started off well with the bat but Dhawan and Agarwal fell in quick succession. India did make a comeback courtesy Kohli, Iyer and Rahul and at one stage, they would have put Australia under immense pressure as we all know what Kohli can do. The Indian skipper played a fine knock and was well supported by Rahul who scored 76. Once Kohli fell, it became a lot easier for Australia as they then kept on chipping away at the wickets. Hardik Pandya also could not do much with the bat as he struggled for timing in this game and they have ended up losing the game by 51 runs.
Australia did not start off too well as Starc was rusty again and he gave plenty of runs at the start. And when Rahul and Kohli's partnership was going strong, they might have thought that they are giving the game away. But once, Kohli fell, they went right back on top and they did not let India come back. All the bowlers bowled really well, barring Mitchell Starc. Pat Cummins picked up three while Zampa ended up with two. Hazlewood was good again while Henriques used his cutters really well on a wicket which slowed down as the game progressed. Their fielding was also much better than their Indian counterparts and that made a difference. Overall, it was a terrific performance from Australia.
A comprehensive win for Australia! They defeat India by 51 runs and win the series with a game to spare. They have decimated India in all the departments of the game and have been superb in this game. India though would now would want to get back on the drawing board as they have now lost 5 ODIs in a row. Aaron Finch will be very pleased with the effort from his boys as they look to complete a whitewash.

He is through his shot way too early and the ball takes the top edge. Glenn Maxwell runs back and takes it calmly. He is pumped up but Australia will not breathe easy till Hardik is around. 69 more needed in 23 balls.

A slower ball, on a length, outside off, Hardik looks to pull but mistimes it. The ball goes off the bat towards deep mid-wicket where Marnus Labuschagne takes the catch. Australia celebrate, but the umpire wants to check the overstepping. And it is a big one. The batsmen crossed, so Jadeja will face the Free Hit.
Mitchell Starc has been handed the ball. 8-0-64-0 so far. Finch has a long chat with him.

OUT! CAUGHT! What a brilliant catch from Henriques! Just terrific stuff from the all-rounder and this puts Australia right on top again. Hazlewood provides the breakthrough. Shortish on middle, Kohli pulls towards mid-wicket. Henriques dives to his left and takes a blinder. End of a very good innings from Kohli but neeeded to continue for his side.

DRINKS! India are fighting and fighting hard. Kohli and Rahul are building a solid partnership but they would know that the job is not done yet and would want to continue and register a huge partnership. Australia, on the other hand, would know that one wicket would put them back on the ascendancy. They need to be calm and bowl tight lines and lengths.
DRINKS BREAK. Actually, it was not scheduled. One of the batsmen needed some attention to his bat. ADAM ZAMPA was even ready to bowl but then it was taking a bit too long. So the umpires called for refreshments. India are in an excellent position. They have planned their run chase well and with the likes of Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja still to come, they will back themselves to chase down 176 in 17 overs. Interestingly, Australia were 209/2 at this stage, so India are not behind at all.

Leading edge but safe! Full ball on middle, Kohli, seeing the mid on fielder up in the circle looks to go over mid on but gets a leading edge. Luckily for him, it lands safely. Aaron Finch chases it down from short mid-wicket, gets to it and pulls it back in. Ashton Agar, the substitute fielder, tracks it from deep mid-wicket and returns the ball. The umpires check whether it is a clean save and it is. Three taken.

Time for some refreshments. India certainly batting a lot better than the previous game. Yes, the required rate has already touched 8.5 but if wickets are in hand, big scores can be attained. After 16 overs, India are 101/2. Australia were 101/0. So really, it is all about the wickets, isn't it? The Aussies scored 272 in their last 30 overs. Break it down further. They were 117/0 after 20, 187/2 after 30, 275/2 after 40 and 114 runs in the last 10. So you can get 120 in the last 10 overs here, if you have wickets in hand. Here comes MOISES HENRIQUES.

NOT OUT! A big inside edge and Kohli survives! Excellet use of the review from Kohli and he needs to make use of the opportunity now. Full on middle, Kohli looks to drive but seems to have missed it and gets rapped on the pads. Australia appeal and the finger goes up. Australia are ecstatic but Kohli takes the review immediately. The Hot Spot rolls in and it shows a spot as the ball passed the bat. So Kohli survives.
Kohli has been given out LBW! Kohli has taken the review. It looks closes. The Hot Spot shows a spot on the bat. Kohli survives. Brilliant use of the review.
