The top order of both India and Australia have enjoyed rich form. The same, however, cannot be said for the lower order which has struggled for runs. And therefore KL Rahul’s power knock of 80 from 52 deliveries becomes the most important innings in India’s 36-run victory at Rajkot. That aside the top batting order and the bowlers of both teams have been in fine form.
India and Australia have quality in every department, but the final game will be more about a test of nerves than skills. The Men in Blue will start as favourites considering they have momentum with them.
For a change, the world’s best no 3 – Virat Kohli – was batting at 3 again for India after the shocker in the 1st game. Kohli looked his old self back at his favourite position. He pulled, drove, lofted and smashed but Adam Zampa dismissed him again. The leg-spinner becoming the first-ever spinner to dismiss Kohli 5 times in ODI matches.
Manish Pandey’s brilliant one-handed catch to send back Australian opening batsman got India rolling in the must-win encounter. Pandey, stationed at cover-point, pulled off a one-handed stunner to dismiss Warner off Mohammed Shami. Warner, who hit a century in the 1st ODI, looked in good touch during his 12-ball 15 runs stay at the crease.
India then found the success as Kuldeep accounted for Alex Carey. Australia were further dented with Kuldeep removing Smith. The right-hander fell two runs short of his century. The two wickets made things difficult for Australia as the required run-rate creeped up. Australia eventually were bowled out in 49.1 overs.
