Match Ended   
174/9 (20.0/20)
154/7 (20.0/20)
India beat Australia by 20 runs
Right then, that is it from this game and we will not get a decider. But, we do have one more game left in this series and it is an important one as there aren't that many T20Is before the T20 World Cup in about six months. It is also a great platform for players of both sides to put their best foot forward and make a case for the future. The fifth and final T20I will be played on Sunday, the 3rd of December at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru and will begin at 7 pm IST (1.30 pm GMT). Our build-up though will begin a lot sooner, so, do join us then. Cheers!
Axar Patel is the Player of the Match for his sensational spell of bowling. Axar says that he tried a bit of flight and turn when he was home. He knew that the ball was coming off well from the hand and says that it does create a bit of doubt when you lose a match despite the effort. Axar states that dew played a part in the series and it was important to bowl stump to stump. He intends that it is important to be brave and execute the plans irrespective of any fear of being whacked by the batters [especially against left-handers]. Axar highlights that it is important to innovate. People do watch videos and try to learn from players. So, he wished to try the slower ones in a match and see how things unwind. Doing in practice is a different aspect but when one can execute the plans practically in a high-profile contest, it boosts the confidence
Suryakumar Yadav, the captain of India starts by chuckling that other than the toss, everything went well and on a serious note, says that boys showed character which is more important. Adds that they spoke in the meeting before the game to go out and express themselves. Says that he always loves to put Axar Patel under pressure and give him the final over but on a serious note, it was great to see him perform the way he did in the middle phase. Mentions that no matter what the opposition requires in the final five overs, the plan was to bowl yorkers and is very happy with the performance.
The Australian captain, Matthew Wade says they did not play spin very well. Adds they lost too many wickets in the middle and that left Tim David with a lot to do on his own. Mentions that maybe they could've done better against spin. He adds that they failed to do what was needed. Says that Ben Dwarshuis was quite good with the ball as well as Jason Behrendroff. Adds that established guys like  Ben McDermott and Josh Phillipe will be getting another chance in the next game. He highlights the T20 World Cup in the timeline and it would be a great opportunity to strengthen the team.
The Presentation ceremony...
Ravi Bishnoi is down for a quick chat. He says that he tried to make the most of the opportunities he got. He adds that he is happy with the way he bowled in this series and hopes to continue his form and mentions that he liked how the team played together. He then goes on to appreciate his bowling coach for backing him and always trusting his plans.
Earlier in the game, Matthew Wade won the toss and opted to bowl first yet again. The wicket seemed like a belter yet again but with no dew coming into play, it was difficult for new batters to just come in and play their shots. Yashasvi Jaiswal up top was brilliant for India and Ruturaj Gaikwad yet again played the anchor role. India did crumble in the middle phase and right at the death as well but between those two spells, Rinku Singh and Jitesh Sharma played fiery knocks to take India past the 170-run mark. It was a decent bowling display from Australia with Jason Behrendorff doing well yet again but the likes of Aaron Hardie and Tanveer Sangha came into their own and Ben Dwarshuis managed to pick up three wickets, closing out the first innings pretty well in the process. Coming to the chase, the inexperience of the Aussie batters against the spinners was evident and they fell short of the target by 20 runs.
Australia have been dealt a fatal blow here and their hopes of making a comeback in the series are over. They had a challenging total to gun down but Travis Head gave them the perfect start. Josh Philippe then played a poor shot which handed the opposition an early breakthrough and suddenly, the floodgates opened for India. Head and Aaron Hardie were the next to fall and after a shaky stand between Ben McDermott and Tim David, Australia lost a couple of quick wickets. Matthew Short also had a small contribution but it was a case of too many top-order batters playing in the middle order. Skipper Matthew Wade played another quickfire cameo but it was a bit too late and needed batters above him to do more.
India had a decent total on a surface that was devoid of dew but still needed early wickets. Deepak Chahar was put to the sword by Travis Head and it required an early change in bowling to pick up the first wicket. Once Ravi Bishnoi got the breakthrough, he along with Axar Patel bowled well in tandem and had Australia in a spot of bother. However, the introduction of pacers let the grip slip a bit but Axar came back and bowled brilliantly, finishing with three wickets in total. The pacers too managed to pick up a few wickets at the death and ensured that there were no hiccups.
Signed, sealed and delivered! India have successfully defended 174 runs and have clinched the five-match T20I series 3-1 with a game remaining. It was a competition between two sides who were testing their bench strength and Australia mostly had players who have hardly played in such conditions but the young Indian side has put on a fine display.

Drinks break! At the halfway mark of the chase and for now, India have their noses in front and a couple of more wickets here will see them a very firm grip on the game. Australia do have two charismatic players on the crease and there's still a bit more batting left but Ben McDermott and Tim David have to take the game deep to give the Aussies a chance. Let's see how the game eventually pans out.

HUGE APPEAL! The umpire stays unmoved while Bishnoi was very much excited for the lbw chance. Good length delivery, wrong'un at the middle stump line. McDermott went to nudge across the line and got beaten and wrapped at the pad. A review has been taken by the Indian side. Ultraedge shows flat line as the ball whizzes past the willow. Umpire's call on wickets on ball tracking and therefore the original decision gets retained.

Axar Patel To Travis Head OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Axar Patel now gets into the wicket-taking act and he gets the big fish. This is floated up outside off with a bit of pace on it. Travis Head stays deep and gets down on one knee looking to play the slog-sweep. Head throws the kitchen sink at it and ends up miscuing the ball completely. The ball is sliced in the air toward short third where Mukesh Kumar settles under the high ball and pouches it safely. A big reaction from the Indian players and Head departs after a fast start.

Ravi Bishnoi To Ben McDermott
A huge appeal for LBW but the umpire says no! The bowler and the keeper look convinced and eventually, Suryakumar Yadav does review it. Ravi Bishnoi bowls this one flatter and from the front of the hand on middle, the ball slides on and beats the inside edge as Ben McDermott looks to block off the front foot. The ball thuds into the pads and there's nothing on UltraEdge. Ball Tracking shows the wickets as umpire's call and McDermott survives.

Ravi Bishnoi To Josh Philippe OUT!
OUT! TIMBER! A wicket off the very first ball for Ravi Bishnoi but what was going on in Philippe's mind there? Starts off with a full and quick one on off stump, Josh Philippe gets down for the sweep but is beaten for pace and ends up playing all around it. The ball sneaks under the willow and crashes into the off stump and Bishnoi has handed India their first breakthrough.

Leg bye! Hard length on leg stump and shaping back in, Travis Head gets caught on the crease and the ball thuds into the pads before rolling toward backward point. Half an appeal from the bowler for LBW but it is turned down and they get a leg bye as well.
