India win 3rd ODI vs Australia; clinch Series

27 Septembre 2017

It will be a Sunday blockbuster match of the ODI series namely; India vs Australia at the Holkar Stadium Indore, the visitors can already see a few lights which will prove this as an interesting match. The opening partnership of Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane also deserves an equal credit for India's win.

Dravid feels Pandya is a ideal example of how to bat differently in different conditions. "So we need to start turning those results around and winning some games of cricket", he said. Fox Sports and Channel 9 will telecast the match is Australia, while Sky Sports will beam the series in the UK. Pandya is a dynamic all-rounder, who has the ability to bowl a useful spell with the ball, bat with a goal and field with enthusiasm.

Pandya got the breakthrough for India in the 14th over as Warner missed the line completely and was bowled. Smith accepts it hard to motivate players after losing the series. Not enough of them after Finch made a run-a-ball 124.

The Baroda man had also scored 83 in a match-saving knock in the first ODI. Australia crossed 200 in the 35th over and looked set for a mammoth total before Indian bowlers hit back.

With surgery a possibility, the left-arm finger spinner's hopes of taking part in a second Ashes campaign have taken a hit.

While his fielding has been below par, Smith has notched back-to-back half-centuries in a struggling batting line-up.

David Warner, who will be playing his 100th ODI, has said that there is still plenty at stake for Australia and that they will give their best in the remaining five games. The Indian team is in spectacular form, thanks to the youngsters in the Indian setup like Kuldeep Yadav, Hardik Pandya and Yuzvendra Chahal.

Australia opener Aaron Finch's fluent century came to a nought due to self-destructive batting by Australia in the last 10 overs.

In the practice session on Tuesday, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami had a decent bowling workout and Kohli might be tempted to rest either Jasprit Bumrah or Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Hardik Pandya again proved the thorn in Australia's side as the all-rounder struck 78 to help India wrap up a series victory and return to the top of the ICC ODI rankings.

The fourth game of the series will be played in Bangalore on Thursday.

"It's been a bit of a trend for this format and the test format as well".
