Match Ended   
222/3 (20.0/20)
225/5 (20.0/20)
Australia beat India by 5 wickets
Right then, Glenn Maxwell has handed Australia a big lifeline before taking off for home but India are still one win away from sealing the series. The fourth T20I will be played at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium in Raipur on Friday, the 1st of December. The game will begin at 7 pm IST (1.30 pm GMT) but our build-up will start a lot sooner. Do join us then. Till then, take care and goodbye!
Glenn Maxwell is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH in his 100th T20I match for his unbelievable knock. Maxwell says that it all went pretty fine pretty quickly and once the dew sets in, it gets difficult to bowl the yorker and just tried to keep wickets in hand till the final over to give themselves a chance. Adds that he knew, Axar Patel had one over left and that meant Matthew Wade needed to be out there to take him on and the way he controlled the other end, allowed him to play his role.
Australia's skipper, Matthew Wade says that you don't get much better than that and it was hard work to get over the first 20 overs given Kane Richardson's injury and then Glenn Maxwell just put on a show. Adds that he wasn't overly confident and was pretty grumpy when Maxwell conceded 30 runs but he did more than a stellar job to get them over the line. Adds that unfortunately, Kane injured himself and he was an over-short and had to toss the ball to Maxwell but it didn't work out. Says that they really needed this win, especially with the big guns going off and the young guys coming into the team for the remainder of the series.
The Indian captain, Suryakumar Yadav chuckles that they needed to get Glenn Maxwell out quickly but says, on a serious note, defending 222 in very dewy conditions, you have to give something to the bowlers. Mentions that there was heavy dew in the last game as well but with 222 on the board, the opposition was always in play. On Axar Patel bowling at the death, he says that he has experience bowling the 19th and 20th overs, so, he went with the experience even with the dew. On Ruturaj Gaikwad, he says that the way he batted was phenomenal to watch.
The Presentation ceremony...
Jason Behrendorff is down for a quick chat. The lanky pacer expresses that it was a remarkable game of cricket and there were not too many words at that moment. It's a happy hunting ground. It would be excellent if he could've got some wickets apart from that impressive economy. He adds that they're looking for a series victory and always look to give their best and wish to take the momentum to the next game. On asking if he would like to pass on a Player of the Match trophy to Glenn Maxwell provided he earns it, he agrees. The pacer heaps praise on Glenn Maxwell by stating that he is unbelievable and to get a century on his 100th T20I game is special. Behrendorff agrees on the point that bowlers do go for runs every now and then and it's a bit harsh.
Earlier in the game, Matthew Wade won the toss and elected to bowl first again but got the start with the ball this time around. However, after the early wickets, Suryakumar Yadav and Ruturaj Gaikwad stitched together a quick partnership and so did Tilak Varma and Gaikwad after the fall of the skipper. In the latter half of the first innings, Ruturaj Gaikwad simply went into beast mode and notched up a sensational ton, propelling India to a very big total yet again. For Australia, Jason Behrendorff returned to the side and showed his class, conceding just 12 runs in his four overs in a match where the average economy was over 11 runs in an over. Nathan Ellis was pretty decent as well but the rest of the pack went for plenty. Coming to the chase, Australia had a decent first 10 overs but at the death, they pulled off something miraculous and now have a chance of squaring it all up in the next game.
India, at the halfway point, surely would have thought that they had done enough with that big flourish with the bat but one man has torn them apart. The pacers up top were sluggish to start with but the likes of Avesh Khan and Ravi Bishnoi brought a bit of control back for the hosts with quick wickets. Bishnoi remained a threat through the middle phase and picked up another wicket and Axar Patel too bowled fairly well apart from that difficult penultimate over. Arshdeep Singh went the distance and so did the star at the death from the previous game, Prasidh Krishna and he was hammered for 68 runs in just four overs, including the 23-run final over. India still have the lead in the series but will seriously need to tighten things up with the ball.
A run chase that had everything in it and it all started with Glenn Maxwell conceding 30 runs in the final over of the first innings. That over seemed a disastrous one for the Aussies but did more than a bit to galvanize Maxwell with the bat. With 223 required for the win, Australia started off strongly with both Travis Head and Aaron Hardie getting early boundaries away. Between overs 4 and 7, Australia lost three wickets and were 68/3 at that point but then came Maxwell. Marcus Stoinis at the other end struggled a lot but Maxwell kept on finding the fence at will. With Stoinis and then Tim David departing in quick succession, skipper Matthew Wade came out to support Maxwell. Wade didn't quite get started strongly but did notch up a few important hits right at the death and Maxwell just took apart Prasidh Krishna in the final over to not just seal a fourth T20I century but also a huge, huge win for his side.
Madness, absolute madness in Guwahati, and 'THE BIG SHOW' has written his name all over this game! Australia are alive and kicking in the series now and Maxwell has his final match of the tour a thoroughly memorable one.

Prasidh Krishna To Glenn Maxwell
FOUR! Glenn Maxwell finishes off in style and Australia stays alive in this T20I series. What a humdinger! Full and around the off stump line. Undercooks the attempted yorker and the right-handed batter tonks it down the ground over the bowler's head for a four. A magnificent knock from the Big Show, that too in his 100th T20I game, seals the deal in Guwahati for the visitors.
A big discussion going on between the bowler, the captain and a few of the other players including the keeper. Prasidh Krishna under immense pressure here!

Prasidh Krishna To Glenn Maxwell
FOUR! Glenn Maxwell races to his record-equalling fourth T20I century with a four. A full toss at the stumps. Maxwell tries to smoke it over the deep mid-wicket region but fails just short of the ropes. Eventually, it's a four towards deep mid-wicket region. The TV umpire checks for a no-ball for elevation but seems okayish.

Prasidh Krishna to bowl the final over. It is going right down to the wire. Can Krishna defend 20 runs? Let's find out. Also, due to the slow over rate India have one less boundary rider which could make a massive difference.

The TV umpire has been referred to. Flat line on Ultraedge as the ball swirls through the willow. The umpire observes that the collection of the ball from the keeper was not fully behind the stumps. Marginally before the poles. And so, it gets converted into a no ball. A free hit on queue.

OUT! CAUGHT! Straight to the man and that's brilliant captaincy from Suryakumar Yadav. Ravi Bishnoi bowls this one on a length around off with the ball sliding on, just a touch slower as well. David gets a big stride forward and looks to block but does so with hard hands. The ball goes off the higher part of the bat and straight to Suryakumar Yadav at cover. The skipper takes an easy catch and holding one over of Bishnoi for David has worked wonders for India as the latter departs for a golden duck.

Drinks break! What a game we have on our hands! Australia are slightly below the required rate but have done well to amass over 100 runs in the first 10 overs. Glenn Maxwell is firing on all cylinders and his partnership with Marcus Stoinis holds the key for the Aussies. India need wickets because the pitch looks pristine and if these two get more set, the game could be done with overs to spare. Let's see how it all pans out.
