... RUN CHASE ...
India will look to come out all guns blazing and they have strengthened their batting order considerably. They will want the openers to attack the Australian bowlers without worrying about keeping wickets in hand. With just 8 overs to bowl, the visitors will hope to maintain discipline and restrict the scoring. If that brings about wickets it would be a massive bonus for them. An exciting run chase awaits us. Do join us shortly.
Australia began with positive intent with the captain Aaron Finch playing the aggressor role. A brilliant piece of fielding from Virat Kohli got rid of last game's half-centurion Cameron Green and the decision to bowl out Axar Patel early proved to be a masterstroke as he claimed the wickets of Glenn Maxwell and Tim David to peg Australia back. Aaron Finch motored along though and made a quickfire 31 before being dismissed by Jasprit Bumrah with a trademark yorker. Matthew Wade continued his good form and played some exquisite strokes en route to his 43 runs as he took Australia to the 90-run mark. Axar Patel was the pick of the bowlers taking two wickets in his 2 overs and conceding just 13 runs.
Matthew Wade's sensational form continues! Australia have put up a decent total of 90 on the board but will feel they lost wickets far too frequently early on and are 10-15 runs short of a formidable target. India have done well with the ball but need to work on their death bowling as Harshal Patel conceded 19 runs in the last over. That said, they will know that they have enough firepower in their arsenal to chase down this target.
7.6 overs (0 Run) OUT! RUN OUT! Steven Smith looks to steal a single but gets run out. It is a slower one, full and on off. Wade works it back to the bowler. Meanwhile, Smith is already half way down the track. Patel gathers the ball and sprints to the non-striker's end. Australia have ended their innings at 90/5.
