Man of the Match, Usman Khawaja, says there is no better feeling than winning especially against a strong Indian side. Credits how Virat Kohli played but appreciates the effort by his bowlers. Mentions they wanted to bowl first as they were not sure what a good first innings total was but Finch and himself played really well. Reckons the wicket got slower as the game progressed. Ends by saying he is pleased with the runs he scored.
Australian skipper, Aaron Finch, says it is a pretty decent effort by his boys. Credits how they batted and also appreciates the new ball bowlers. Feels it is important for the set batsman to continue as it is not easy for the new batsman coming in and that is exactly what Khawaja. He is working hard on his game and he is pleased with his effort today. Appreciates Khawaja's, Zampa's, Cummins' and Richardson's effort in this game.
Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, says they did well to pull back things towards the end and were quite optimistic about their chances of chasing this down. Felt that they expected dew to fall in the evening but that did not happen. Reckons that the wicket was not an easy one to bat on and you need to make use of the loose balls. States that early wickets made their task very difficult. Adds they have lost early wickets in this series, something which has not happened to them a lot often, hopes they can improve that. Says he is very pleased with his knock. Ends by saying there might be some few changes in the next game but they will be playing with the same mentality.
For Australia, Pat Cummins had yet another decent time with the ball. Zampa was expensive but it was his wickets which won them the game. Jhye Richardson impressed one and all and justified his selection. Stay tuned for the presentation in a while...
Australia though did not let the lost momentum affect them as they came out all guns blazing with the ball. Pat Cummins and Jhye Richardson were exceptional with the new ball as they dismissed the top order within Powerplay 1. Dhoni and Kohli then played themselves in and steadied the ship with a 59-run stand. However, the former was dismissed just as he started to get going. Jadhav then came out and it was his partnership with Kohli which brought India back in the game and changed the momentum. The two added 88 in 75 balls and revived hopes in the Indian camp. However, just as the tide seemed to be turning in the hosts favor Zampa struck. Kohli though continued, he along with Vijay Shankar built yet another 45-run stand with the skipper getting to his ton. The two were going great guns but it was once again Zampa, who got rid of the Indian skipper. Shankar then along with Jadeja did try to fight but the task was a very difficult one and in the end the Indians fell short quite comfortably.
THE SERIES IS STILL ALIVE! Australia have managed to make it 2-1. A very convincing performance by them. After quite a few matches one cay say the Aussies have put up a good performance with both, bat and ball. They were inserted and their openers came to the fore adding a massive 193-run stand. Usman Khawaja was the star as he scored the ton. They though did not end their innings with the bat with momentum on their side but still set a good enough target of 314 for the Indians.
Pat Cummins To Kuldeep Yadav OUT!
OUT! In the air... taken! There goes the last man. Cummins takes it. It is his 3rd wicket of the game. Length ball on off, Kuldeep swings but only manages a top edge. It balloons towards Finch at mid off and he makes no mistake. All smiles in the Australian camp as they have WON BY 32 RUNS!
