Australia batted first in the last game and fell short of a competitive total. Every batsman spent time in the middle but none of them carried on to make a substantial score. They were halted for 236/7 and it was mostly due to the Indian bowlers. Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Kedar Jadhav and Kuldeep Yadav, all of them tightened the screws on the opposition.
While chasing the target, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma set the plot with a stand of 76. But they lost 3 wickets quickly to arrive in a struggling position of 99/4. But Kedar Jadhav and MS Dhoni batted sensibly and didn’t allow Australia to rise. Their partnership of 141 took India home with 10 balls in hand. India would be looking to carry the good run in Nagpur too.
