186/5 (20.0/20)
174/7 (20.0/20)
Australia beat India by 12 runs
Right then, that caps off a thrilling white-ball leg of India's tour down under. What a fantastic 6 games we had - 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is. The hosts won the former while the visitors clinched the latter. India would be happy that they managed to extract revenge in the second leg of the white ball series after losing the first leg. Right, off we move to the longest format of the game now, Tests. The Border-Gavaskar Trophy between these two dawns upon us in just a few more days. The 1st Test, the pink ball one, is at Adelaide. It begins on 17th December at 1430 Local (0400 GMT). We hope to have your company for that. Until then, take care and see you...
Hardik Pandya is the PLAYER OF THE SERIES. Says that he is quite pleased with the way he played. Honestly adds that it was not an individual effort but a team effort. Says that he thinks he should head back home to see his family and child. Wants to spend quality time with them he says, on being asked if he thinks he might be called for the Test team.
Virat Kohli, with the trophy in hand, for winning the T20I series 2-1, says that in T20Is, one has to take their chances. Eventually, Kohli states, the batters had too much to do in the end. Adds that he still believes the team was competitive throughout the series. Virat says that he feels very happy. Is great that they got to play in front of crowds. Believes the games were exciting as crowds were present. Because crowds are there, the atmosphere is different too. Says that Australia are a very competitive side and that India need to do a lot to come on top.
Aaron Finch, the WINNING CAPTAIN, starts off by saying it is very good to be back and to be back with a win. Adds that bowling to Dhawan, who is a very good bowler of spin, was tough. States that Kohli is also a bludgeoner of the spinners and hence they needed to be careful. Says that some mistakes cost them the first 2 games. Adds that when one plays against the likes of champion teams like India and England, one needs to be at their best.
Mitchell Swepson is named the Player of the Match. Says that he is elated to bag this award and take his side home. On Shreyas Iyer's wicket off the very first ball that the batsman had faced, Mitchell states that he is happy to have got the wicket.
Andrew Tye is caught up for a quick chat. He says that he is happy with the total that Australia had got earlier. Adds that he is happy that Australia have won the last game. States that it is a batsman's game. Stay tuned for the presentation ceremony...
Earlier in the game, Kohli got lucky with the coin toss and asked Australia to set the total. The Aussies got to the worst possible start as they lost skipper Finch for a duck. However, Wade and Smith added 50-plus and kept the boundaries coming with Wade doing his magic again. He got to his half ton and with Maxwell took the attack to the Indians. Maxwell too looked in good touch and he too smashed a fine 50 before getting out and helping Australia to get to 186/5. Indians were poor with the ball and on the field. Only Natarajan and Sundar had a decent outing with the ball for India. However, the total that the Aussies got to, was good enough for their bowlers in the end.
Bowling from Australia was better than what it was in the last game. They struck in the very first over. But the fielding from them was pretty much similar to that of the Indians. Swepson was pick of the bowlers as he got 3 wickets to his name, giving away just 23 in his 4 overs. Zampa just bowled 3 but got the massive wicket of Pandya. Abbott once again had a poor outing with the ball. Tye was pretty good in his 4-over spell, picking up the wicket of Kohli in that. Eventually, it was a decent outing for the Aussies, as they managed to keep chipping away at wickets and in spite of good, attacking cricket from Pandya and Kohli towards the end, they held onto their nerves and managed to bag the first win of the series.
Chasing the total, India lost Rahul on the 2nd ball of the chase but Dhawan along with Kohli added a 50-plus stand to keep the score ticking. Dhawan fell but Kohli continued and got to his half ton.  They were going along nicely but India lost 3 wickets quickly with Dhawan, Samson and Iyer falling in quick time. Kohli, along with Pandya, smashed a few out of the park but the latter fell against Zampa in the 18th over. With him going, Kohli had to go after the bowling and he fell in the penultimate over and it was easy peasy after that for Australia.
A terrific game of cricket and it is Australia who hold their nerves and manage to avoid a whitewash in the hands of the Indians. With Indians losing quick wickets, it became tough towards the end and the Aussies managed to squeeze the game and put India under pressure and seal the deal. However, it is India who will take the series 2-1. But, it is slightly disappointing that India lose their first T20I game, in 2020.

Sean Abbott To Shardul Thakur
DROPPED! Well, the game ends with a catch being dropped. Pretty charecteristic of the fielding in the series itself. Short ball, Shardul Thakur pulls hard at it. It goes high in the air to the man at deep mid-wicket who spills the sitter. A couple taken by the team from South Asia. But it does not matter as the AUSTRALIANS WIN BY 12 RUNS! INDIA THOUGH, WIN THE T20I SERIES 2-1!

Sean Abbott To Washington Sundar OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Sundar is gone. This match is going away from India. Full toss well outside off, would have been a wide had he left it. But Washington Sundar goes after it. He strikes it uppishly but Tye, at deep backward point, runs in and takes the catch.

Sean Abbott To Washington Sundar
FOUR! Good strike this on the off side. India still in the game. 23 still needed though. Outside off, Washington hops and hammers it over the covers. Sweeper cover gives chase but the ball is well wide of him and goes away to the fence.
Who will bowl the final over of the game? Will Finch toss the ball to his leggie again? Thakur can use the long handle well against him. Finch goes to his pacer. Sean Abbott it is. He hasn't had the greatest of game today.

Who will bowl the penultimate over of the game? Andrew Tye it is.

WADE MISSES A STUMPING OPPORTUNITY! Kohli riding on a good deal of luck as well here. This was tossed up on the pads, Virat comes down the track and looks to slam it on the off side. He though misses to connect on that one. It comes off his pads, goes behind. Wade fumbles and a leg bye is sneaked in. Oh my goodness. How costly will that be!

Adam Zampa To Hardik Pandya OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Leading edge. This has been taken. Good captaincy from Finch. Full on middle and leg, Pandya's eyes lit up on seeing that. He looks to slog it over the leg side but gets a leading edge. It is uppish and goes straight into the hands of Aaron Finch at backward point. Aaron backtracks a little and takes it with ease.
Who will bowl now? Will Finch give an over to Zampa? Yes, here it is. 2-0-14-0 from him so far.

Mitchell Swepson To Shreyas Iyer OUT!
OUT! LBW! Second wicket in the over and Iyer falls for a first-ball duck. Swepson strikes on his last ball of his spell. Lovely spell and he has turned the game around eally qucikly. A loopy googly from Swepson. Iyer doesn't read it well and tries to flick but he misses to get hit on the pad. They appeal and the umpire agrees quickly. Iyer has a word with his skipper. And they go for the review. No bat involved. Pitching in line and hitting the wickets. Keep walking Iyer and as he goes, takes a review along with him. 3/23 from Swepson is his 4. 87 needed in 7 overs.
Review time! It is for a lbw. Shreyas has opted to review the on-field LBW decision which was ruled against his favour. Nothing on Snicko. Then it might be tough for India to sustain the review as it looked plumb. And yes, Ball Tracker confirms that. THREE REDS! Review lost.
12.5
1
Mitchell Swepson To Virat Kohli
Flatter and on middle, tucked towards the leg side for a qucik single. 100 up for the Indians. They need 87 more in 43 balls.
Just checking to see if Smith has flicked that in cleanly. Or has he touched the ropes in the process. Nope... nicely done from Steven. No issues there.
12.4
2
Mitchell Swepson To Virat Kohli
WOW! What an effort from Smith. Sensational work from him. He just took a catch and now gets his Superman wings on to save two. Floated on middle, Kohli jumps out of his crease and powers it towards long on. It looked to be going over the fence but Smith times his jump to perfection, catches the ball but he knows he will land on the other side of the fence so he throws it back in. They check with the third umpire if it is a clean stop. They look at a few replays and deem it as a clean stop. Superman stuff from Smith.
Who's in now? Shreyas Iyer walks out to the middle.

Mitchell Swepson To Sanju Samson OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Samson holes out. Swepson gets the 2nd wicket of the night. A low full toss, Samson looks to slog it over long on but he miscues it off the toe end of the bat. Smith there runs ahead and this time he takes the catch without any fuss. Samson throws away another opportunity.

Edgy single. Flat and outside off, SS looks to cut but gets an outside edge. It goes to short third man and Men in Blue take a single.
A very late review from Finch. That looked to be going down to the naked eyes. Swepson wasn't too sure but Wade had a thing or two to say and Finch went with it. Let's see if they can get the wicket. No bat but impact is umpire's call and also the ball is not hitting the wicket. Australia lose their one of the two reviews.

NOT OUT! The correct decision from the on-field umpire. Tossed up on the pads, Sanju Samson gets down and looks to mow a huge slog sweep. He misses and gets hit on the pads. An appeal for LBW. But the umpire, Tucker, is unmoved. And just at the brink, Aaron Finch, after having  a chat with his players, takes a review. No bat but Ball Tracker says that it was missing the stumps. Mitchell himself thought it was going down leg as his side takes the review.

EDGED AND FOUR! He has not got hold of it. But the open spaces on the off side means he gets a boundary. Full and outside off, Shikhar goes for the big leg side heave. But he gets a thick outside edge. The ball flies over short third man and goes into the boundary.

A tough chance for Andrew there. Full and on the stumps, Kohli plays it uppishly and just over the stretched hands of Tye for a single. A really tough one but with Kohli, got to try to take them.

Taken? No, put down? It is Smith who puts down an absolute sitter. Loopy ball on middle, Kohli jumps out of his crease and flicks it. The ball goes straight to Smith at deep mid-wicket. The ball goes straight in the hands and then pops out. Single taken. Finch cannot believe it. Top fielders putting down easiest of chances in this series. How costly will this be?

Risky single! Direct hit would've been end of Kohli. A length ball just outside off, Dhawan pushes it towards cover-point and goes for the single. Maxwell quickly gets to the ball and has a shy at the striker's end but misses.
Sean Abbott to bowl from the other end. A slighly inexperienced Aussie bowling line-up but let's see what he can do.

Glenn Maxwell To KL Rahul OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! Rahul holes out in the first over. Maxwell with an early success for the Aussies. He bowls this short and on middle, Rahul goes for the pull but he doesn't time it that well. It goes to the fielder at deep mid-wicket. Smith there makes no mistake. 2-ball duck for Rahul. Exactly what it was for the Aussie skipper and one of their openers.
Right then, we are back for the chase. The Indian openers step out to the middle. KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan it is. The Australian players step out to the middle and take their positions on the field as well. Glenn Maxwell will open with the ball for the Aussies. Here he comes...
