India vs Australia: Both teams arrive for third ODI in Indore

India vs Australia Ind vs Aus Australia tour of India 2017 Michael Kasprowicz Cricket news indian Express

With bright sun after three days of rain, the 50-over day-night promises an interesting match between India and Ausssies. Team India's last wicket dropped as Yuzvendra Chahal (2) on the last ball of the innings.

Smith tried out different things but nothing was going Australia's way, when suddenly a runout came to their rescue as going for a second run, Rahane was caught short of the crease by Hilton Cartwright. The major reason why the Indian batsmen have not been able to dominate the world champions is the incredibly consistent performance of their pacers, especially Nathan Coulter-Nile. Australia were making strides into the game when, in perhaps what was the most crucial juncture, skipper Smith mistimed a hook shot for substitute fielder Jadeja to bag a hard catch which turned the match on it's head. Manish Pandey (3) continued his lean patch and was out in a space of 21 balls, becoming Coulter-Nile's second victim. It was Virat's 45th and Rahane's 20th fifty.

The Australian team, on September 19, trained indoors while the while the Indian team abandoned its practice session. After 25 overs Team India scored 124 for two wickets.

Despite the history, in-from fast bowler Pat Cummins believes they can mount a comeback in Indore on Sunday. "So they [Australia] probably had to get a few runs in the first 10".

Steve Smith had spoken about the surface having "More grass than he'd seen anywhere else in India!" but in actuality, the covering was only there to bind the surface together. In Chennai, he was bowled by Jasprit Bumrah for one and in Kolkata he was cleaned up by Bhuvneshwar Kumar for an identical score. "He's a very good batter, he's played a lot of cricket over the past couple of years, he's got a lot of experience and for us at the top of the order, he brings a lot of aggression". He has plenty of experience of playing in Indian conditions and countering spinners.

The 22-year-old Kuldeep had not enjoyed success in his first seven overs and gave away 39 runs.

Indians continue their dominance with their 8th successive ODI win and 11th consecutive worldwide win, with their 50-run victory over Australia.
