IND vs AUS 3rd ODI Highlights: India lose by 21 runs, go down 1-2 in series

After witnessing two extreme results in the first two ODIs, India and Australia lock horns in Chennai in the series decider. This is India's last match before the IPL 2023 kicks off and Rohit Sharma's men will look to salvage their home record of winning the ODI series since 2019. Australia will look to continue their all-rounder aggressive approach and outclass the Men in Blue in their own backyard.

    India lose

    And Australia have defeated India in the 3rd ODI by 21 runs. They win the series 2-1 as India lose for the first time after winning 7 consecutive ODI series at home. This was a nail-biter as the pendulum swung between both the teams. Australia first got off to a decent 269-run total on a pitch that seemed a bit slow at times. India were always in the chase, especially when Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya were playing. But after the fall of those two batters, it went away from the hosts. Jadeja could not play his shots and was outclassed soon. Shami's short cameo inspired some hopes but it was way too much as India got bundled for 248. It was pleasure bringing this to you, I Varun Malik sign off. Ta, ta.

  • 10:01 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Shami goes back

    Shami inspired some hopes with a four and a six but has been bowled by Stoinis.

  • 9:51 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Jadeja goes back

    And Zampa has got the final recoganised Indian batter Jadeja. India all in trouble and stare a defeat now. Kuldeep and Shami at the crease. 

  • 9:31 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    India need 54 off 42

    So, we are in the final 10 overs. India need 54 off 42 balls and Jadeja and Pandya are out in the middle.

  • 9:10 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Pandya, Jadeja lead India

    Meanwhile, Pandya and Jadeja are leading India well. 71 runs are needed in 66 balls and these two hold the key for India.

    SKY falls on golden duck after Kohli departs

    Oh my God! Kohli and Suryakumar are gone. Another golden duck for SKY and this is his third in the series. What's going? This was pitched on short of a length and stayed low as Suryakumar looked to play off the back foot. It beats him and is gone. India are 6 down and still more than 80 away. A little bothering time now

  • 8:41 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Pandya shows positive intent

    Meanwhile, Pandya is showing positive intent and hitting the balls. He is 22 off 17 balls and is not letting pressure come on the team.

  • 8:28 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Fifty for Virat

    And the Indian maestro has brought up another fifty. He is powering this chase very well. A 61-ball fifty for Kohli as India are on track to chase this. Kohli has been very patient. Just 2 fours and a six in his innings so far. But Kohli would be knowing that his work is only half done. 

  • 8:19 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Another wicket, Axar falls

    Another wicket for Australia and Axar Patel has been run out. A big mix-up between Axar and Kohli and the former has been caught well short of his crease. Very good fielding from Smith and a beautiful piece of work from Carey. India are 4 down. No Suryakumar for India even now as Pandya comes in. I think he has been given the role of a finisher tonight as he fell on golden ducks coming to bat early in the previous two ODIs.

  • 8:14 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Rahul falls

    And KL Rahul has gone after being set for a good knock. He did not get the middle of the bat on this fuller-length ball as it went to long-on. He was looking to free his hands but is gone for 32. Axar comes in ahead of Surya. Maybe because of left-right combination.

  • 8:05 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    India 130/2 after 26

    We are over halfway mark in this match and India are going well. The stand between Kohli and Rahul has gone past fifty as they continue the good work. Rahul has hit a straight six off Starc in the 27th over and he has started to free his arms.

  • 7:50 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Kohli, Rahul keep India on track

    The pair is keeping India on track. But Rahul is not able to strike at a good run rate. He has made 15 runs in 35 balls, while Kohli is at 33 from 38. Rahul should step on the paddle now

  • 7:31 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    India go past 100

    The Men in Blue are going well, just like Australia. But they should not lose wickets like the Aussies did. Kohli and Rahul are in the middle as India have crossed 100 before 20 overs end.

  • 7:17 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    India 85/2 after 15

    A mixed sort of start for both India and Australia. While India are little shy of run-a-ball, Aussies have managed to get both the Indian openers. Kohli and Rahul are in the middle and some balls are spinning well.

  • 7:08 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Zampa gets Gill

    Zampa has struck and got the other set Indian opener. This was a great review from Australia. Pitched full on near his legs and the only question was is it bat first or toe first. Review confirms toe first and it crashes on leg stump. India two down and Rahul comes ahead of Surya

  • 6:51 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Rohit falls

    He lives by the sword and dies by the sword. This is Rohit's favourite shot as it fetches him runs. But this time the pull has got his wicket. Abbott pitched this one on short of a length as Rohit played a pickup pull. But it goes straight to the square leg fielder as India lose their 1st wicket.

  • 6:46 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Spin introduced

    Australia have brought Adam Zampa into attack in the 9th over. Sharma has hit a six over long-on as Zampa goes for 10 runs in his first over.

    India make good start

    India have made a good start to the chase. They have made 31/0 in 6 overs. Gill has struck two boundaries and a six off Starc. He is batting really well at 22 at the moment.

  • 6:10 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    India begin chase

    And India have begun their chase of 270 runs. Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill will look for a good start and avoid the threat of Mitchell Starc.

  • 5:36 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Australia bowled out

    And Australia are bowled out for 269 in 49 overs. An inning full of pendulums swinging between both sides. Set batters lost their wickets but the Aussies kept ticking the scoreboard. This wicket looks a bit slow so 269 can be a good score here. Australia started well with Head and Marsh continuing their assault. But Hardik Pandya brought India back into the game with his three wickets. Kuldeep Yadav then ripped through the middle order to keep the wicket flow going. But in between Australia got partnerships and have posted a competitive total. Can India get these runs and win the series?  We shall find that out soon. Back with India's reply. Meanwhile, read this piece of Kuldeep's magical wicket

    Australia 209/7 after 40

  • 4:39 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Kuldeep cleans Carey

    Kuldeep Yadav has got another one. What a ball that was. A proper jaffa to get rid of a well-set Carey. Pitched outside leg and turned sharply away from the left-hander to find the top of the off stump.

  • 4:35 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Axar gets breakthrough

    Axar has got the breakthrough. This partnership was growing and was already past fifty in quick time. But Axar gets one fuller angling in as Stoinis looked to go aerial. Gets inside half of the bat and Gill takes the catch on his right at long-on. Set batters are giving it away.

  • 4:13 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

  • 1:33 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

  • 1:19 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Pitch report

    There is a covering of grass at the pitch. It has rough through the middle. It can be a two-paced pitch. This is not a center pitch and one dimension is a bit short. Batting can get easier as the match proceeds further.

    Steve Smith during toss

    We are gonna have a bat. Looks like quite a dry surface, it is pretty hot out here. Will look to put a good total on this surface. We have had good fun and it will be exciting in the decider. We love playing in the crunch games and it's exciting. It's dry, so Ashton Agar is back. David Warner comes in for Cameron Green as he is feeling a bit unwell, so there are changes.

  • 1:09 PM (IST) Posted by Aachal Maniyar

    Rohit Sharma during toss

    We were looking to field first. It's an important game and the deciders are always interesting. It's always good to put us in this situation. It's a challenge for us to come back and play some good cricket under pressure. Hopefully we can put our best foot forward. Australia are a good team and you can always test your depth. We are playing with the same team. We were thinking of playing with four seamers but the conditions here are suitable for the spinners, so we go with three spinners.
