Every cricket fan who has seen the second ODI will have doubts that this is the pitch where Manollu was forced to bat… Is it here that top class batsmen like Shubman Gill and Suryakumar Yadav ducked out? Where we struggled to cross 100, Australia ended the match in 11 overs in T20 style.
Mitchell Marsh once again hit a half-century as Travis Head added a run partnership for the first wicket with him. With this, Australia, who started batting with a target of 118 runs, ended the match in just 11 overs. Mitchell Marsh, who was in terrible form, scored 66 runs from 36 balls with 6 fours and 6 sixes, while Travis Head scored 51 runs from 30 balls with 10 fours.
Earlier, after losing the toss and batting first, Team India were bowled out for 117 runs in 26 overs.. Team India lost their first wicket at 3 runs and could not recover at any stage.. Team India got a shock in the first over. Shubman Gill, who bowled 2 balls, tried a huge shot off the bowling of Mitchell Starc and was caught by Labushane and ducked out.
Rohit Sharma, who scored 13 runs off 15 balls with 2 fours, was bowled by an eye-catching catch by Steve Smith off the bowling of Mitchell Starc…the very next ball saw Suryakumar Yadav dismissed as an lbw by Mitchell Starc. Suryakumar Yadav, who was ducked by Mitchell Starc’s bowling in the first ODI, got a golden duck in the same style in the second ODI. Suryakumar Yadav became the first Indian player to get a golden duck in two consecutive matches.
KL Rahul who played 12 balls and scored 9 runs with a four, got out for LBW on the bowling of Mitchell Starc… Despite taking DRS, Team India did not get the result. After that, Hardik Pandya, who took a single in 3 balls, was dismissed by Steve Smith off the bowling of Sean Abbott.
Despite wickets falling on one side, Virat Kohli, who seemed to be playing cautiously at the other end, could not score a big score. Virat Kohli, who scored 31 runs with 4 fours in 35 balls, was dismissed as an lbw by Nathan Ellis, and Team India lost the sixth wicket at 71 runs.
At this stage, Akshar Patel and Ravindra Jadeja added 20 runs for the seventh wicket. Ravindra Jadeja, who scored 16 runs with a four in 39 balls, was caught in the hands of Alex Carey off the bowling of Nathan Ellis. 17-ball Kuldeep Yadav added a 12-run partnership for the 8th wicket with Kuldeep Yadav… Team India crossed the 100 mark…
Kuldeep Yadav, who scored 4 runs, was caught by Travis Head off the bowling of Sean Abbott. Abbott ducked Mohammad Shami in the next ball.. Team India lost the 9th wicket at 103 runs. Akshar Patel hit 2 sixes in the 26th over bowled by Mitchell Starc at this stage. Siraj escaped from LBW in the same over and was clean bowled on the last ball…
Mitchell Starr gave away 53 runs in 8 overs and took 5 wickets. It is remarkable that four of the Indian batters were ducked. Akshar Patel remained unbeaten on 29 runs off 29 balls with one four and two sixes.
