India vs Australia Highlights And Cricket Score 3rd Match - ODI Commentary

End of Over : 50.0 AUS: 286/9

Right then, a target of 287 at this venue can be considered to be a walk in the park. But the surface has shown signs of holding up which will make the chase interesting. Do join us in a short while for India's reply.

Michael Slater has Marnus Labuschagne for a quick interview. Marnus says that the wicket is a little bit slow and he feels that they have enough on the board. Tells that they tried to get a kick on, kept the momentum going in the middle overs but lost wickets regularly after that. Reckons that it's enough with the way the Australian bowlers are bowling, especially the spinners. On reading the surface, Labuschagne replies that it's the part of the game and you need to read the wicket and adjust accordingly. Praises Smith for his knock but adds that he will be disappointed to not hit that into the stand (on his dismissal).

It was a decent effort from the Indian bowlers. They started well but failed to exert pressure in the middle overs. Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja didn't create the same impact that they were expected to on a pitch which appeared to be on the slower side. However, towards the end, they pulled things back efficiently. Mohammed Shami was in his elements with some fantastic death bowling while Jasprit Bumrah once again was difficult to hit.

At a small Chinnaswamy Stadium where defending is often next to impossible, Aaron Finch took a brave call at the toss to bat first. His plans were to post a big total on the board but Australia didn't get off to a good start. They lost both their openers cheaply inside Powerplay 1. Steven Smith and Marnus Labuschagne joined forces after that and did the repair job with a century stand. It was a bit of a scratchy knock by Smith but the need of the hour was for one batsman to stick around at one end and he fulfilled that role nicely. A century from his bat came after three long years (of course in ODIs) and his another partnership with Alex Carey prepared the launching pad for the death-over hitting. However, it never happened and Smith getting out in the 48th over meant that Australia failed to even touch the 300-run mark.

Just 10 runs in the last two overs for Australia and they have failed to get the desired kick in the death overs. Too many wickets at the backend of the innings and India will be pleased with the way the innings ended. They would feel that the momentum is on their side heading into the chase.

Shreyas Iyer runs forward and across a bit to his right from deep mid-wicket and takes a fine catch by going down. He seems to have hurt himself in the process.

43.6 W

Navdeep Saini to Ashton Turner. OUT! Saini spears in a yorker outside off, Turner tries to dig it out but fails to do so cleanly. There is some sound as it goes to the keeper and India appeal after KL Rahul has grabbed the ball. The umpire turns down the appeal and Virat Kohli consults his bowler and keeper before taking the DRS. The replays roll in and they find that the ball has kissed the bottom end of the bat on its way to the keeper. Saini has his first wicket. Difficult stay in the middle for Turner is over.

End of Over : 32 0 Runs AUS: 173/4
31.6 W

Ravindra Jadeja to Mitchell Starc. OUT! The move to send Starc up the order to counter Jadeja flops. Flighted delivery on middle, spinning in, Starc tries to slog it into the stands at mid-wicket but it doesn't have the required height. It goes towards Chahal (sub) at deep mid-wicket who moves across to his left to complete an easy catch. A 2-wicket maiden over and India have roared back in this contest.

31.5 0

Ravindra Jadeja to Mitchell Starc. Flatter and shorter on middle, Starc hangs back to punch but it takes the inside half and rolls to square leg.

31.4 0

Ravindra Jadeja to Mitchell Starc. Quicker one on middle, Starc moves back to punch it through covers but gets an inside edge onto the pads.

What is this? Mitchell Starc has come out at number 5! Australia certainly are aiming for some quick runs.

DRINKS HAVE BEEN TAKEN. India could not have asked for a better time to get the break and the breakthrough. Nothing was seemingly happening, the batsmen were milking runs but suddenly, Labuschagne decided to up the ante and perished. 19 overs are left in this innings and the visitors will feel anything less than 300 is not going to be enough on this deck.

31.3 W

Ravindra Jadeja to Marnus Labuschagne. OUT! Now then, this is a brilliant piece of catching from the Indian skipper. On the first ball of this over, he made a superb stop to keep Labuschagne at the striker's end and now he has taken a stunning diving catch to remove him. Catches win matches and this one has surely put India in control. The 127-run stand off 136 balls has been broken. A flighted ball around off, Labuschagne tries to play the lofted shot over covers but fails to get the desired connection. It flies to the right of Kohli at short extra cover who dives across brilliantly in that direction and grabs a ripper. Virat celebrates big and so does the crowd.

31.2 0

Ravindra Jadeja to Marnus Labuschagne. Tossed up ball around off, blocked off the front foot by Marnus.

30.5 4

Mohammed Shami to Marnus Labuschagne. FOUR! Shot! Lovely timing and placement! MAIDEN ODI FIFTY! Labuschagne continues to grow at international level. Fullish and on middle, Marnus uses his wrists and flicks it through the gap between mid on and mid-wicket. The fielder in the former position runs across to his right but has no chance of cutting it off. Marnus raises his bat to celebrate his knock!

30.4 1

Mohammed Shami to Steven Smith. The batsman works it down the leg side. They pick up a single.

Ravindra Jadeja to Marnus Labuschagne. SAFE AS A HOUSE. Full and around off, Labuschagne worked it towards mid-wicket and set off. The throw was a good one to Jadeja, who, according to the naked eye, whipped the bails off as Labuschagne dived in but did not appeal. But the umpire referred it upstairs. Replays showed that Jadeja, while trying to collect the ball Australian style, with fingers pointing skywards, fumbled and lost the ball.

Run out appeal! Don't know who appealed but Michael Gough has gone upstairs. Replays show that Jadeja fumbled the ball.

Ravindra Jadeja to Steven Smith. FOUR! How late has he played that? Very late. Short and outside off, Smith gets his bat down but connects with the ball a second late.

Mohammed Shami to Steven Smith. OUT! Mix-up and Finch is run out! Boy, the skipper is furious. He looks up at Smith but does not say a word. Now, when he goes past him, he utters words in anger. He is a boiling teapot at the moment. A length ball outside off, Smith dabs it towards backward point. Now, Smith takes a couple of steps, says no, then continues running. Finch responds to the call and keeps running but then Smith turns back without any warning. The skipper is left high and dry as he has nowhere to go. Jadeja misses his shy from point at the striker's end but there is Shreyas Iyer at mid-wicket. He calmly collects and under-arms it to the bowler who has smartly gone back at the stumps. He collects and disturbs the bails. India celebrate!

Mohammed Shami to David Warner. OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! Shami strikes and Warner goes cheaply again. Early strike for India. A perfect delivery to a left-hander and even more so, to David Warner. Keep feeding him balls outside off and plant the seed of doubt in his mind. Warner is tentative, as he thinks whether he should try to run this full ball down to third man. But is late and gets a thick outside edge. KL Rahul does the rest.

The Indian players are out in the middle leg by their skipper Virat Kohli. He looks in high spirits and pumped up for the game. They are wearing black arm-bands as a mark of respect for Bapu Nadkarni who passed away on Friday. Australian openers, David Warner and Aaron Finch make their way out to the middle as well. Jasprit Bumrah to start the proceedings with the ball. The countdown is complete and we are all set to begin. Let's go!!!

Kuldeep Yadav is down for a quick interview. He says that he has been bowling well since the last series and today is a decider so he is looking forward to it. Adds that the bowlers tend to bowl defensively in this format. Adds that he did not mind getting hit for a six and stuck to bowling an attacking line. States that looking for wickets in the middle overs is very important. Finishes by saying that he is focusing on more on varying his pace and that will be the key for him.

India (Unchanged Playing XI) - Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (C), Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (WK), Manish Pandey, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Navdeep Saini, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah.

Australia (Playing XI) - David Warner, Aaron Finch (C), Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey (WK), Ashton Turner, Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood (In for Kane Richardson), Adam Zampa.

Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, says that they got exactly what they wanted and wants to put the pressure on the Australian batsmen. Expects dew to settle later in the evening while also mentioning that usually the pitch here will play the same over the full quota of 100 overs. Says against the Australians they had a comprehensive victory in the 2nd ODI. On the changes in the playing XI, Kohli informs that there are no changes and KL Rahul will be looking to make a good impression in front of his home fans on this wonderful ground.

Aaron Finch, the Australian skipper, says that this looks like a good wicket to bat on. Says that they want to get into the Indian middle order and are aiming to take some early wickets. Credits India for their victory in the second ODI. On the changes in the playing XI, Finch informs that Josh Hazlewood replaces Kane Richardson as he is a bit sore after the last match.

Toss - Up goes the coin and Aaron Finch calls Heads! Heads it is and Australia have opted to bat first.

Pitch report - Sanjay Manjrekar is down for the pitch report alongside Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar. Sanjay Manjrekar says that the pitch is very dry and there are some cracks on it. Sunil Gavaskar says that there will be a lot of grip and assistance especially for the wrist spinners, but there will be something for the finger spinners as well. Further says that the team who wins the Toss should want to bat first and put the pressure on the opposition but it will be interesting to see what the captains will do.

It is time! The M Chinnaswamy Stadium awaits as India and Australia face off in the series decider. A crunch clash, one where each side would be looking to prove a point. The Indian batting order finally looks settled after an injury to Rishabh Pant has seen KL Rahul slot into the wicket-keeping role and make room for another pure batsman or an all-rounder too in the form of Shivam Dube. The Australians after a massive victory in the first ODI, were defeated in the second one but they won't be too disappointed with the manner of it as they were well in the game until the 35th over after which Kuldeep Yadav turned the game around in one over. It will be interesting to see what happens in this game as it is expected to be a high-scoring game which this ground is renowned for due to its size. Expect a lot of maximums and tons of runs. Stay tuned for the toss and the pitch report.

End of Over : 47.3 IND: 289/3

As far as India are concerned, their home season comes to an end. But their cricket does not end, does it? They plan for the New Zealand tour next and then the Indian T20 League. It was a marvellous period for them post the World Cup, where they did not lose a single series. They continue to find all types of bowlers - fast and spin and if any, they just need some exposure for the young guys who can play if the likes of Rohit, Dhawan and Kohli fail. Hope you enjoyed our coverage and looking forward for your company soon. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

Right. That ends a competitive, really competitive ODI series. Perhaps the best series played by India at home post the 2019 World Cup. Australia will be disappointed. Not because they lost, but because they believed they had a really good chance to win. Last time around, a weak team had won the series from behind. This time, a strong unit let slip a series lead. However, given their torrid 2019, one would believe that they are turning a corner and are slowly getting back to being considered as one of the strong teams in world cricket. Their fast bowlers are always a revelation but it is the batting which keeps letting them down. Marnus Labuschagne is a good addition to the top four but the middle order needs to find players who are good and who can be consistent. Perhaps this break will help them.

VIRAT KOHLI HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE SERIES. On him and Rohit doing well again, Kohli says that both of them are very experienced and believed that all they had to do was to deny Australia wickets. Stresses that this is how they play, one guy takes responsibility of batting through and allows the other to go for his shots. On his shot-making, especially against the short ball, Kohli says that he practices a lot in the nets but has plenty of clarity in his mind about playing the short ball on the front foot. Adds that on another day, if your mind is cluttered, you will nick one behind. On Australia's quality, Virat says that this unit was better than the one which visited Indian shores in 2019 which won after being 0-2 down. So to win against such a side, that too, from behind, after losing that last series, is a big boost to his side.

ROHIT SHARMA HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. Says that it was an important game but the team just wanted to enjoy itself which it did. Lauds the bowling unit for keeping the Australian line-up under 290. Adds that once Rahul got out, it was important that the hosts got a good partnership and none better than Kohli to have as your partner. Stresses that at no stage did either of them want the momentum to go to the opposition and further says that it was he who told Kohli that he was looking in good touch and hence, it should be he who should go for the shots. Praises Australia for always coming up with quality bowling attacks and says that the Indians had to be smart while playing them. Admits that in the first two games he was trying something different, hence struggled but here, he just looked to bat through. Adds says that he was seeing the ball really well.

Australian captain, Aaron Finch, says that he was happy with the score put up by Australia although he admits that they were 20-30 runs short. Stresses that the guys are improving but the momentum keeps getting stolen from them as the middle order is still trying to get to terms. On Zampa's performance, Finch says that the big difference in this series was Zampa's line, which he says, he learnt from Jadeja. Is proud to be a part of such a series where both teams plays well. On Starc and Cummins proving expensive here, Aaron is not too concerned and says that such things happen when you play against the best side in the world.

Shreyas Iyer now comes up for a chat. Admits that in all the matches that he has played so far, Australian attack has been the best and says that it feels satisfying to come out on top. Admits that they were targetting the short ball against him, into the body but he was mentally prepared and counter-attacked. Stresses that no matter what, he would do only what his skipper says and tells that the captain's advice was to try and take as many singles as possible and that gave him plenty of confidence.

Indian head coach, Ravi Shastri has a chat with Sanjay Manjrekar. Shastri says that the Indian team showed great character, especially after the thrashing in Mumbai. Is happy that the Indians believed that they could come back and do well not once but for two games in a row. Stresses that the hosts won against all odds as it was Australia who won all the tosses in the series but it was India who capitalized on the moments. Is really happy that the batsmen did not open the door against the Aussie attack which always looks for wickets. Is particularly happy with Rohit taking his time and then attacking and the composure of Shreyas Iyer as well. On the bowlers developing yorkers, Shastri says that it is a warning for other sides who look to attack India at the death because they have variety. Believes that this was a very tough Australian side which played India, credits them for playing well but also praises his own unit for coming out on top.

Earlier in the day, Australia lost their way from a commanding position at 173/2 in the 32nd over to finish at least 40 runs below par. Steven Smith and Marnus Labuschagne played really well but it was India who came back superbly towards the end of the innings. The Indian spinners bowled well while Shami got a 4-fer.

Another disappointing night for Australia. They are a pack which looks for wickets but if the surface does not offer them much, they struggle. Pat Cummins perhaps bowled his worst ever ODI spell in over a year and that perhaps shows how tired he was. His body needs rest. Mitchell Starc is nowhere near the Starc we all know and sprayed the ball all around the pitch. Hazlewood was on the money as he just does not need the pitch for any assistance. On a track which was slowing a little, Agar and Zampa did well, with combined figures of 20-0-82-2. Perhaps, if the target was above 300, the batsmen might have gone after the spinners and that could have resulted in their wickets but Rohit and Kohli were content in just playing them out.

Towards the end, Shreyas Iyer helped himself to some useful runs and spent some nice time in the middle along with his captain. He struggled at the start but was determined and disciplined not to throw it away and slowly eased into his innings. Kohli missed out on his century but he was just playing for the team's win. A totally unselfish innings, allowing the youngster to gain confidence and not worrying about the 3-figure mark.

Australia tried whatever they could. They kept telling themselves that they were one wicket away from a collapse but that never came. The 137-run stand between Kohli and Rohit just shut all doors on the visitors and so convincing and dominating was the stand, that when Rohit eventually got out, with 81 runs more needed from 80 balls, the game was virtually over. Rohit produced probably his best knock in a run chase while Kohli, was Kohli. Just struggled a bit against the spinners but then eased off against the others.

As is always, the top 3 are crucial for India whether they bat first or second. Here it was just 2 - Rohit and Kohli. Sharma, in the absence of Dhawan, added 69 for the opening wicket with Rahul but the latter was struggling big time. Then, in came the skipper and just punished Australia out of the game and series.

A comprehensive win for the Indians. 286 was not a bad score from the Aussies, albeit it was 30-40 runs less, but the manner in which India have chased it down shows their dominance. A total thrashing in the second and third games. Truly the better of the two sides.
