That's all we have from today. The 4th ODI will be played in Ranchi so do join us for that. Till then, farewell!
James Faulkner is adjusted the Man of the Match for his stunning knock. Says that it was not easy and it was a miracle. He says that he was not comfortable with Ashwin and just milked him for singles and was targetting the pace bowlers. Says that it was overall a good game of cricket.
George Bailey credits the win to James Faulkner for his extraordinary hitting in the death. Says that he's a strong boy which has been same in all the formats of the game. Says that it was a good batting wicket overall. Is happy being 2-1 up but mentions that there's still work to do.
MS Dhoni says that the death bowling is an area of concern and also tells that's an area that has become worse. Wants his bowlers to bring up their own methods and back their strength.
When India were struggling at one stage being 76/4, Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni lifted them up with a crucial stand and the latter went the distance to score a magnificent hundred. While Australia came out to bat, they could never keep up with the scoring rate and with 66 required off 30 balls, the equation was against Australia but then James Faulkner thundered a 30-run over off Ishant Sharma and from there on, the match went completely out of India's hands.
A wonderful match has eventually comes to an end. India had the match in their hands for 3/4 part of their innings but some poor bowling towards the death, aided by James Faulkner's sensational hitting, has seen Australia snatching victory out of loss's mouth.
Vinay Kumar to James Faulkner
SIX! AUSTRALIA WIN BY 4 WICKETS! This is an incredible victory. Usually, will the one with a magnificent 139 be the man of the moment at the end of the match but take a bow, James Faulkner. His innings off 64 off just 29 balls has turned it on here. A full toss as Vinay misses his yorker mark, Faulkner slams it away over mid-wicket and pumps up his fists in jubilation.
Lovely fielding in the deep! A very full ball, Faulkner slams it away over wide long on. Jadeja takes it well on the half-volley to stop the boundary. 6 NEEDED OFF 4 BALLS!
