48.5 U Yadav to Faulkner
Australia clinches the series 3-0 thanks to a 3 wicket victory over India in the third ODI.
38.3 Ishant Sharma to M Wade
Ishant has his second wicket, an ugly pull from Wade and it’s a simple catch for Dhawan,
34.2 Umesh Yadav to Maxwell
Australia reach 200 for the loss of 4 wickets.
29.6 Ishant Sharma to Shaun Marsh
Huge roar from Ishant, and that tells you how much it means to him! Coming back to the delivery, it was a length ball that was angling across, good seam position, the ball held its line, Marsh nibbled at that one without any conviction, got a thin edge, straightforward catch for MS Dhoni.
26.1 Jadeja to Bailey
Dhoni collected it cleanly and whipped the bails off in a split second. He made it look so easy. Bailey’s back foot was on the line. That will definitely even the scales once again. Dhoni knew immediately that it was out. He didn’t need confirmation from the third umpire. The giant screen flashes ‘OUT’ and there’s a roar from the Indian contingent.
18.5 Jadeja to Steve Smith
Jadeja strikes in his first over. India find a way past Smith. Jadeja held this one back, gets some turn as well. The outside edge is grazed and Rahane goes low at first slip to pouch it safely
15.5 Gurkeerat Singh to Steve Smith
Smith turns back in, tucked to short fine to bring the 100 up.
7.1 Umesh Yadav to Aaron Finch
The outside edge has been found courtesy some late movement. Good length, drew him forward, Finch went for the drive, but was beaten by the late movement, thin edge and MS accepts that gleefully.
Virat Kohli made 117 to lift India to 265-6 batting first in Sunday’s one-day match against Australia, thrilling a crowd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground which seemed to contain as many Indian fans as their Australian counterparts.
Kohli posted his 24th one-day international century, his fourth against Australia and his first at the MCG to guide India to a competitive total. He shared partnerships of 119 for the second wicket with Shikhar Dhawan (68) and 109 with Ajinkya Rahane (50).
Kohli had to repair the innings after the uncharacteristic failure of Rohit Sharnma who was out for 9 after making 171 not out in the first game and 124 in the second. Kohli continued a brilliant run of form after making 91 in the first match and 59 in the second.
Australia XI: Finch, S. Marsh, Smith (c), Bailey, Maxwell, M Marsh, Wade, Faulkner, Hastings, Richardson, Boland.
India XI: S Dhawan, Rohit, Kohli, Rahane, Dhoni (c), Gurakeet Mann, Jadeja, R Dhawan, Ishant, Yadav, Sran.
