He mentions that they do not want to dig deeper into it and hopes that the guys will get better from hereon.

Time for the Presentation...
Virat Kohli is down for a quick chat. He says that he bats at number 3 and has to use his experience while chasing. Adds that the plan was take Zampa on as he is a crucial bowler for them. Mentions that Sky is an excellent batter and tells that he got a hundred in England and played well in the Asia Cup as and he continued his form here. Adds that he is striking the ball better than anybody. Tells that when SKy was attacking Rahul and Rohit said to him to keep it slow. Says that the game should not have gone till the end but he is happy that they are on the winning side. Adds that he is trying to hit those big ones in the middle overs. Ends by saying that he is happy with the contribution that he is making for the team.
In the first half, Australia started off with a bang with Cameron Green coming out all guns blazing. However, they failed to capitalise in the middle overs with the bat as well as India managed to pick wickets at regular intervals. However, they still got a par score on the board with Tim David smashing it all around the park in the death overs. For India, Axar Patel was the star yet again with three wickets to his name and Chahal and Harshal Patel were also pretty good which are good signs for India. It was set up to be an exciting chase and that is what we got but looking at the bigger picture with World Cup around the corner, this series will surely go a long way in fine-tuning their squad and plans ahead of the marquee event.
Australia are a great fighting side and that was evident in this game as well. They bowled well in the Powerplay but could not keep a lid on the scoring rate as India managed to keep up with the required rate despite losing two wickets in the Powerplay. Adam Zampa was always going to be the key bowler in the middle phase but he had a bad day in the office and that eventually cost Australia. They did keep themselves in the game though till the end by nailing those wide yorkers brilliantly but it is a game of small margins and India have just managed to inch ahead of them in the end.
We were expecting a high-scoring thriller and that is exactly what we have got here in Hyderabad! India had a tough task on their hand coming into this chase but it was not an impossible task with the pitch being a belter to bat on. India lost Rahul early and Rohit also could not last long as India were in a spot of bother in the Powerplay. However, Kohli and SKY got together and India kept scoring at a brisk rate through the middle overs with SKY playing a blinder of a knock. He played some breathtaking shots all around the ground and Kohli also played his part perfectly at the other end. They put up a partnership of 104 from just 62 balls and by the time SKY departed India were in the driver's seat. Things got quite close in the end though with Australia bowling well in the death but Pandya kept his calm after Kohli's dismissal and took India over the line.
India have clinched the series with a win here in this cracker of a game! The momentum kept swinging from one team to another throughout this match but it is India who have come out on top in the end. It is a kind of series and the competition these two teams would have desired for ahead of the World Cup and have to say, it has been a thoroughly entertaining series with the quality of cricket being of the highest order.
