India vs Australia 3rd ODI Highlight


Aaron Finch (Australian captain): “We took it down to the wire. Our batting in the first couple of games was very good. Maybe we should have set our targets lower on those sort of pitches.”

MS Dhoni (Man of the Series): “It was a slow wicket, so it was difficult to hit whenever you wanted to. No point going after the bowlers who were bowling well, so we wanted to take it deep and that was the plan. Kedar did a great job in executing. I am happy to bat at any number. The important thing is where the team needs me. I can’t say I can’t bat at No. 6 after playing 14 years.”

Yuzvendra Chahal (Man of the Match): “I enjoyed bowling for the first time in Australia (internationals). The ball was spinning a little bit, so I planned to bowl slow and vary my pace. Looking forward to the New Zealand series.”

India’s successful run-chases without any of top three scoring 50+ (since Apr 2015)
127 v Zimbabwe, Harare, 2016
223 v Bangladesh, Dubai, 2018
231 v Australia, MCG, 2019

This game was set up mainly by Chahal. His double-strike in the very first over hurt Australia badly and the hosts kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Handscomb held one end tight to ensure they got a decent total on the board. India lost Rohit early in the chase and then a set Dhawan later. Kohli looked in control alongside MSD, but the pressure of a few dots at the other end probably got to him and he edged Australia’s best bowler to the keeper. Kedar Jadhav walked in, showed great support, listened to MSD’s instructions, which is why he didn’t try and attack early. An unbeaten 121-run stand gives India their first ever bilateral ODI series win in Australia
