Righto! First win for India in Rajkot in three attempts. But as the home season nears a close, one has to say, this is the best series which we have witnessed. India-West Indies came close but two teams loaded with firepower in batting and bowling have given the fans their money's worth. Now, can the final ODI enthrall us as well and end India's home season with a bang? Well, join us for another batting paradise and bowlers' demise on Sunday, 19th January 2020 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
KL RAHUL HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. Says that he could not asked for a better start to 2020. On batting at number 5, KL says that it was a different position and he just needed a couple of balls to adjust to the situation. Is happy with the way he batted and got a few partnerships along. On his wicket-keeping, Rahul says that it is something which he has grown up doing but didn't quite get to do it as he was mostly playing first-class cricket. Ends by saying that he has been keeping for Karnataka in the domestic circuit in the last season, so he was pretty confident about his skills.
Victorious Indian captain, Virat Kohli, smiles on being asked about his batting position again. Says that it is very important to figure out what is the best batting position for a player (KL Rahul) when he is in such great form. Lauds that innings as one of his best in his opinion, in international cricket. Observes that the last few games have been very important for Shikhar Dhawan and calls him as one of India's best players in ODIs. Adds that India are always in good shape when Rohit and Dhawan are looking good and Rahul's innings here adds the icing on the cake. On Rohit's fitness after he landed awkwardly on his left shoulder, Virat says that he just had a word with his vice-captain and says that Rohit was confident of being fit for the final game. On the yorkers coming one after another at the death, VK says that the bowlers told him that this is the best chance to showcase their skill and they did. On KL Rahul's keeping, Kohli says that it is great for the team if he becomes a multi-dimensional player as it opens up a lot of options for the team.
Australian skipper, Aaron Finch, admits that it is very cold in Rajkot and he did not expect it. Agrees that his bowlers conceded a few too many but also praises the Indian batsmen. Is full of praise for Adam Zampa for his progressive improvement. Lauds Marnus Labuschagne for his wonderful display in his first innings with the bat. On Harsha joking about Smith and Labuschagne being long-lost brothers, Finch smiles and also jokes that they are always together and further says that the only time they aren't together is when they are asleep. On the main reason why the chase faltered, Aaron says that they probably lost a wicket too many with the required rate climbing up.
Earlier in the day, after being asked to bat, India put their best foot forward as they amassed 340 on the board. The top three were in top gear as they batted at a better rate than on Tuesday and the result showed, as almost 350 was reached. Australia had a tough outing with the ball again and unlike the first ODI, could not quite turn things around this time. As many as four batsmen in the match got close to scoring a century but none got there. These are the most runs in an ODI in India without an individual century.
Kuldeep Yadav says that his fingers are cold but he is fine. On his 100th ODI wicket, Yadav says that it was a tough 4-5 months after the World Cup, but he is slowly getting his rhythm back. On his mindset while bowling his last two overs, Kuldeep says that Smith and Labuschagne were batting really well and he only thought that if he got one wicket, he would get another one. On him flighting the ball and worrying the batsmen, Yadav says that the wicket was on the slower side and hence, was looking to vary his flight and pace. Is happy that his plans and hard work are being shaped into place.
India tried their best on a pitch which was not aiding the bowlers much. Bumrah was good and economical as usual while Shami and Saini took care of the wickets. They went for runs but critically, kept the wickets coming. It was the spin duo of Jadeja and Kuldeep which made the real difference, going for 123 in 20 overs for 4 wickets. Here is Kuldeep talking to Harsha Bhogle.
Australia did not get off to the best of starts chasing 341, losing Warner early, but then got a lot of partnerships after that. 62 between Finch and Smith, then 96 between Smith and Labuschagne, followed by 38 between Smith and Carey and then 38 between the two Ashtons. They had the plans in place to chase down 341, with the blueprint neatly laid down but the slow pitch hampered their execution. Smith had to play till the end and the others around him. That almost happened, till that magical 38th over where Kuldeep removed Carey and Smith. Looking at the finish, one will feel had one of them stayed till the end, we could have had a different finish.
When 644 runs are scored in 99.1 overs, you really cannot blame the captains for wanting to field first. But perhaps, Aaron Finch read it wrong a bit. The pitch did slow down a touch in the second innings and there was not enough dew to pose problems for the bowlers.
Two days, two clinical performances, two different teams. Australia were resounding in Guwahati, while India were professional here in Rajkot. That sets up a cracking finale in Bengaluru.

Jasprit Bumrah To Adam Zampa OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! The match ends and the series is levelled. Zampa backs away to the leg side, attempting to pull but Bumrah bowls it short and into the body. As a result, Zampa is cramped for room. He now looks to run it down to third man but only manages to guide it straight to the keeper. KL Rahul. INDIA WIN BY 36 RUNS.

A very full ball, almost a yorker, Agar gets across to flick but misses and is hit on the pads. Saini appeals and up goes the umpire's finger. Agar has a chat with Starc and takes the review. Nothing much to help him. Impact is in line and the ball is crashing into the stumps.
Agar has been adjudged LBW. He has taken the review though, on insistence from Starc. Looks dead plumb. Where is the impact? Ball Tracker shows it to be in line. Crashing into the stumps.

Navdeep Saini To Ashton Agar
FOUR! That is a cracking shot but has Rohit hurt himself? Certainly seems so. Short and outside off, Agar cuts this in front of point. Rohit Sharma gives it a good chase from sweeper cover and dives to his right to stop the ball. Now, while diving, he lands awkwardly on his left shoulder and does not release the ball. Immediately calls for the physio. Plenty of fielders rush towards Rohit, a few to check on him, one to release the ball. The batsmen take two, then the third. Turner looks for the fourth but Agar sportingly puts his hand up to stop his partner as Rohit fell down injured. The umpire refers the fielding effort upstairs and replays show that while tumbling, Rohit's foot was touching the ropes with the ball still in hand. Boundary signalled.

Keeper Rahul was not sure but the skipper went with his bowler. Ball Tracker shows it to be missing leg. The review loss will not hurt India but questions the judgement of the bowler.
LBW REVIEW. Shami is confident, Rahul is not. Kohli goes with his bowler.

OUT! BOWLED! Dragged on. Is that the game? India certainly think so. We certainly feel so. Kuldeep is pumped up. He was not that great throughout the game but in his 9th over, he has delivered two massive blows. The wrong 'un, outside off, Steven goes back to punch but gets a thick inside edge onto the stumps. The crowd erupts in joy. Australia probably are thinking about the flight timing to Bengaluru. 120 more needed from 73 balls. This one's gone, let's plan for the decider on Sunday.

Kuldeep Yadav To Alex Carey
Good fielding by Navdeep Saini. A short ball, Alex pulls it through mid-wicket. The fielder in the ring dives but misses it. The ball races to the ropes but Saini gets across and sticks out his left foot to stop the ball. Very risky. Could have hurt himself. He runs two yards extra beyond the ropes due to the momentum and that allows the batsmen to come back for the third.

Kuldeep Yadav To Alex Carey
SIX! A mishit but it will stay hit. 147 more needed from 98 balls. Full and outside off, Carey gets down, reaches out and attempts the slog. He does not like it because the connection is not sweet. It is flat, mistimed but has enough on it to sail over long on.

DRINKS BREAK. Right. Where are we? Right in the middle of a well-played game. It would have been right in the balance had the master and disciple been playing together but Labuschagne's wicket has just tilted the balance in India's favour. It is all up to Smith now and with the required run rate slowly reaching the roof, he will need someone to play a blinder. Kohli has played his cards perfectly. In the 18 allotted overs remaining, he has 4 left for Bumrah, 4 for Saini and 2 for Jadeja. In the pending 8, he has 4 each for Shami and Kuldeep, both being a touch expensive tonight. He will look to get those two out of the way quickly, before this partnership starts to build. If a wicket falls, nothing better.

Ravindra Jadeja To Marnus Labuschagne OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Taken in the deep. Jadeja breaks the 96-run stand. The master and his disciple are separated. Full and outside off, Labuschagne comes down the track and looks to go inside out. But Jadeja smartly slows the pace down. As a result, Marnus has to reach out a bit to play that shot and miscues it. So, instead of the ball going to cover, it goes to wide long off. Mohammed Shami is stationed there and accepts the catch. India get an opening. 163 more needed from 115 balls.

Ravindra Jadeja To Steven Smith
NOT OUT. Umpire's call! Boy, Smith looked confident right from the start but that was closer than a hair's breadth. The arm ball, around middle, Steven got back to flick but missed and was hit on the pads. It looked very close and Jadeja was confident. But the umpire shook his head. Rahul, Jadeja and Kohli got together for a chat and eventually, the skipper took the review. Ultra Edge showed a spike when the ball passed the bat but there was a big gap between bat and ball. Now, Ball Tracker comes. It shows the ball to be hitting the outer half of leg stump! Umpire's call has saved Smith here.
That looks plumb. But umpire Kettleborough has chosen to keep his finger down. Smith is the man in question. India take the review. Ultra Edge shows a spike when the ball goes past the bat but there is a massive gap between bat and ball. Ball Tracker shows the ball to be clipping leg stump. Smith survives!
