India vs Australia 4th T20I Highlights: Spinners Axar Patel and Ravi Bishnoi led the way to ensuring a 20-run win for India after Rinku Singh, Jitesh Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal helped India set up a target of 175 for Australia to chase in Raipur. India scored 174/9 in their 20 overs and then restricted Australia to a score of 154/7. They have thus confirmed victory in the series as well, having taken an unassailable 3-1 lead with one match to go. Matthew Wade won the toss and chose to bowl first. Both sides made a number of changes, four for India and five for Australia. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ruturaj Gaikwad put up a 50-run opening partnership before the former fell off the last ball of the powerplay. India were pegged back with Suryakumar and Shreyas Iyer both falling within a few balls of each other but Rinku Singh led a fightback with a 48-run stand for the fourth wicket with Gaikwad that came in 31 balls. Jitesh Sharma then stayed up with Rinku's strike rate and the pair put up 56 runs fort the fifth wicket off just 32 balls. It was a bit of a collapse for India after that with Ben Dwarshuis and Jason Behrendorff taking two wickets each in the 19th and 20th overs. Rinku couldn't quite stay till the end, falling off the first ball of the last over bowled by Behrendorff on 46 off 29. Deepak Chahar then fell off the third ball and Ravi Bishnoi was run out off the last, thus leaving India's tally at 174/9 in 20 overs....Read More

Travis Head got Australia off to an absolute flier, especially when he smashed a whopping 22 runs off the third over from Deepak Chahar. However, spinners Ravi Bishnoi and Axar Patel pulled things right back for India with a flurry of wickets after the first five overs. While it looked like India might be in trouble after the pair was done with their four overs, pacers Deepak Chahar, Mukesh Kumar and Avesh Khan kept the pressure up and restricted Australia to 154/7. India thus won the match by 20 runs and confirmed victory in the series as well.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: India beat Australia by 20 runs!

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: And they seal the series win as well. Wade has conjured miracles with the bat in the past, most famously of course in the semi-final of the 2021 T20 World Cup. But this was just too much for him, or for anyone really, to do. He ends up unbeaten on 36 off 23, Green at the other end on three off two. Australia have been restricted to 154/7 and the Suryakumar Yadav gets his first series win as captain this time. India have taken a 3-1 lead in the series with one match to go and so it is theirs. That last match will be played on Sunday in Bengaluru. See you there!

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Wade is on 11 off seven, Short is on 19 off 16. 14 runs came off the 16th over from Mukesh, with one of those being thanks to a six off a no ball.

But he was on 15 off 20 and needed to get a move on, hit a four off the first ball of the 12th from Axar and then went for another but this time, he loses his stumps. India's spinners are strangling Australia here.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Oh that is a stinker of a shot from Philippe and the momentum Australia got from the last over has been dented.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: India 174/9 in 20 overs

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Bit of a carnage in the remaining balls of that last over. Chahar was dismissed off the third ball after which Avesh Khan and Bishnoi's bat were at the same end of the pitch as it slipped out of the latter's hand while they ran a tight two. The last ball was wide and when Behrendorff rebowled it, Bishnoi perished while the batter's tried to run a desperate two.

Dec 1, 2023 8:32 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: GONE! RINKU GOES!

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Behrendorff takes the biggie off the very first ball of the last over. That might just have saved Australia some 20-odd runs. It has been a brilliant innings from Rinku but he is disappointed with that.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: OUT! Two in the over for Dwarshius

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Another catch right at the edge of the boundary, this time it is Sangha at the long-on fence. Axar Patel walks, only pausing when the umpires decided to send it upstairs to check if Sangha had touched the boundary pads in any way. He hadn't and so Dwarshius has his second of the over and third of the match.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Full toss from Dwarshius for the fourth ball of the 19th, it goes high and Travis Head is at long-off. He holds on to it right at the edge of the boundary and looks pretty surprised that he managed to not mess it up.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: SIX, dot, SIX! Jitesh takes off!

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Well what an eventful three deliveries these have been. Second ball of the 15th from Green is slog-swept over midwicket by Jitesh, just the fourth delivery he faced in this innings. Then Green sends in a full toss that Jitesh hammers back.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Jaiswal goes off the very last ball of the powerplay.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Gaikwad has faced just eight balls, he runs a single off the eighth one and that is the 50-run opening stand between the two in the sixth over.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Early scare for Jaiswal!

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Big shout for LBW off the last ball of the first over. Umpire turns it down and Wade goes upstairs. The Aussies look very confident.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Deepak Chahar talks

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: He has got the short end of the stick as far as injuries are concerned but he is back today. Chahar says that he took a break after the IPL and "made a lot of changes in my lifestyle, training and bowling as well."

"I just played two games of the Vijay Hazare Trophy, playing more cricket, working on my mobility and everything. It's all about pressure in international cricket, and even in the IPL, and I feel I handle that well," he said. Chahar says that he wants to continue the rhythm he is in right now. Bowling in the powerplay is the toughest phase, he says, because there are just two fielders out and the ball is also hard. "Bowling later I find it easier because the ball is softer and the field is spread out. My role in CSK was different and primary of new-ball bowler which is also changing now, and for India I've bowled in all phases. In South Africa the conditions are more favourable for bowlers and length is very important because of the bounce," he said.

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: SKY's thoughts

India vs Australia Live Score, IND vs AUS T20 Series: Suryakumar admits that India would have liked to chase as well but the batting unit is firing well so he has nothing to complain.
