commentary

That's it from the game. We move to Mohali for the 4th ODI. With Australia back in this series. That match promises to be another exciting one. It will be played on Sunday, 10th March. It will begin at 1330 local (0800 GMT) Join us for that one. Till then, cheers!

Man of the Match, Usman Khawaja, says there is no better feeling than winning especially against a strong Indian side. Credits how Virat Kohli played but appreciates the effort by his bowlers. Mentions they wanted to bowl first as they were not sure what a good first innings total was but Finch and himself played really well. Reckons the wicket got slower as the game progressed. Ends by saying he is pleased with the runs he scored.

Australian skipper, Aaron Finch, says it is a pretty decent effort by his boys. Credits how they batted and also appreciates the new ball bowlers. Feels it is important for the set batsman to continue as it is not easy for the new batsman coming in and that is exactly what Khawaja. He is working hard on his game and he is pleased with his effort today. Appreciates Khawaja's, Zampa's, Cummins' and Richardson's effort in this game.

Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, says they did well to pull back things towards the end and were quite optimistic about their chances of chasing this down. Felt that they expected dew to fall in the evening but that did not happen. Reckons that the wicket was not an easy one to bat on and you need to make use of the loose balls. States that early wickets made their task very difficult. Adds they have lost early wickets in this series, something which has not happened to them a lot often, hopes they can improve that. Says he is very pleased with his knock. Ends by saying there might be some few changes in the next game but they will be playing with the same mentality.

For Australia, Pat Cummins had yet another decent time with the ball. Zampa was expensive but it was his wickets which won them the game. Jhye Richardson impressed one and all and justified his selection. Stay tuned for the presentation in a while...

Australia though did not let the lost momentum affect them as they came out all guns blazing with the ball. Pat Cummins and Jhye Richardson were exceptional with the new ball as they dismissed the top order within Powerplay 1. Dhoni and Kohli then played themselves in and steadied the ship with a 59-run stand. However, the former was dismissed just as he started to get going. Jadhav then came out and it was his partnership with Kohli which brought India back in the game and changed the momentum. The two added 88 in 75 balls and revived hopes in the Indian camp. However, just as the tide seemed to be turning in the hosts favor Zampa struck. Kohli though continued, he along with Vijay Shankar built yet another 45-run stand with the skipper getting to his ton. The two were going great guns but it was once again Zampa, who got rid of the Indian skipper. Shankar then along with Jadeja did try to fight but the task was a very difficult one and in the end the Indians fell short quite comfortably.

THE SERIES IS STILL ALIVE! Australia have managed to make it 2-1. A very convincing performance by them. After quite a few matches one cay say the Aussies have put up a good performance with both, bat and ball. They were inserted and their openers came to the fore adding a massive 193-run stand. Usman Khawaja was the star as he scored the ton. They though did not end their innings with the bat with momentum on their side but still set a good enough target of 314 for the Indians.

N Lyon to V Shankar, OUT! Shankar holes out! India's possible last hope is walking back. He was well-set, striking the ball nicely but falls at the wrong time. Australia into the bowlers now. This is tossed up, around middle, Shankar goes for the slog sweep again. Hits it nicely but does not get the desired elevation. It goes towards the man at deep mid-wicket. Jhye Richardson there takes a good low catch. One though can question the shot as the runs needed per over was already hit in this one. However, Shankar must have thought another hit and the pressure would have eased big time. Had it come off, it would have been praised, it now has not and it is Australia's game to lose.

A Zampa to V Kohli, OUT! BOWLED 'EM! Zampa has the last laugh! He gets the man Australia desperately wanted. Zampa is pumped up. He has got all the three big wickets, first Dhoni, then Jadhav and now Kohli. Once again it is the full ball which does the trick for him. It lands on leg stump, Kohli looks to flick but misses. The ball kisses the leg pole. Kohli walks back after playing a brilliant innings but one feels, he takes the hopes of India chasing this down along with him. India need another 95 runs, however, there are now two all-rounders batting and only the bowlers to come. Australia right on top.
37.2

G Maxwell to V Kohli, 100 for India's run machine. Back-to-back for him and it is his 41st ODI ton. What a player this guy is. Once again he is leading from the front and once again it is in a high-pressure situation. He gets there with a whip towards wide long on and takes two.

A Zampa to K Jadhav, OUT! LBW! Stun silence here in Ranchi. Tossed up delivery on off, Jadhav looks to sweep but misses and gets hit right in front. Zampa thinks he has got his man and the umpire agrees with him and shows Jadhav the dreaded finger. A very unnecessary shot at this stage of the game. He thinks about the review for a minute but Kohli reckons he is a goner so Jadhav walks back. The 88-run stand has been broken and a crucial wicket for the Aussies as the partnership was looking dangerous. However, Virat Kohli is still out there so the game is definitely not over.

Maxwell in the meantime is appealing but the umpire shakes his head. Glenn really likes it and he is trying to convince his captain to go for the review. Carey though feels it is doing a lot and they do not go for it. Hawk Eye later on shows that it is going over the stumps so a good decision to not review it.

Hawk Eye rolls in and shows Sharma is caught plumb in front. India lose both their openers. Rohit has a shocked reaction as he feels he has edged it. Ultra Edge though feels different. India lost their review early in their bowling, Australia have used it to perfection here.
