  • March 22, 2023 17:40
    Australia falls short.

    It’s been a bittersweet innings for the visitors. Head and Marsh got off to a blazing start yet again. With 61 on the board at the end of the PowerPlay, 350, even 400 looked possible. Hardik Pandya broke that momentum for India with his three wickets. Labuschagne, Stoinis and Carey got starts and looked to put Australia’s derailed innings back on track before Kuldeep Yadav made vital inroads with some spin off the wicket. The innings again looked like folding without much of a fight before Abbott and Agar contributed vital runs to stretch the team’s total to 269. Still seems short of a par total at this wicket.

  • March 22, 2023 17:30
    AUS 269 all out

    Siraj to Starc. SIX - Starc takes on the short ball. He pulls and just manages to beat Jadeja at deep square leg. Siraj answers it with a slower ball. One run on the fourth delivery. Zampa gets a run with a leg bye.

    Siraj gets Starc. Another short ball. Another pull shot. This time Jadeja is there to grab it.

    Ashton Agar c Patel b Mohammed Siraj 17 (21b 0x4 1x6)

  • March 22, 2023 17:10
    AUS 245/8 in 45 overs

    Axar and not Shami into the attack. SIX RUNS! Abbott stands and delivers. Axar overpitches and Abbott hits it over long on. Now Agar does the same. A six over long on.

    Axar gets his revenge! He castles Abbott. The Aussie batter perhaps got a bit carried away. He makes room and looks to clear the mid-wicket boundary. Forgets to look at the delivery as it crashes into the timber.

    Sean Abbott b Patel 26 (23b 2x4 1x6)

  • March 22, 2023 17:05
    AUS 232/7 in 44 overs

    Siraj for the final spell. Agar faces him. He takes a single on the second delivery. Abbott pulls a back-of-a-length delivery but there is protection in the deep so only a single is allowed. Just short of Rohit Sharma at short mid-wicket. Siraj fires in a bouncer and Agar closes his eyes and pulls at it. Lucky to be still at the crease.

  • March 22, 2023 17:00
    AUS 229/7 in 43 overs

    Kuldeep for his final over. Agar hits it to deep mid-wicket for two runs. Abbott continues to find runs. He goes for a reverse sweep, middles it and adds FOUR more to Australia’s tally. Sharp turn again from Kuldeep. The ball pitches on off stump and turns heavily towards the off side. Agar manages to avoid poking at that one. Nine runs from that over.

  • March 22, 2023 16:53
    AUS 220/7 in 42 overs

    Hardik continues. Agar gets a top edge to third man and takes a single. FOUR. A welcome boundary for Australia. Abbott drives off his back foot and sends the ball to the fence through covers. Abbott follows it up with a straight drive. Two runs completed before Siraj fields it.

  • March 22, 2023 16:36
    AUS 203/7 in 39 overs

    Kuldeep is back. He has three overs remaining. OUT! THAT IS A PEACH. He knocks over Carey’s off stump. He pitches the ball on leg. But as Carey squares up to get to the ball, it turns sharply and hits the stumps. A gem of a delivery. Ashton Agar walks out in the middle. Kuldeep traps Agar on the last ball and asks Rohit for a review. The skipper is coerced into taking the review. The impact is outside the line and India loses its referral.

    Alex Carey b Kuldeep Yadav 38 (46b 2x4 1x6)

  • March 22, 2023 16:31
    AUS 203/6 in 38 overs

    A change in bowling. Hardik Pandya is back. ALMOST! Carey survives. He goes to play a square drive and the ball hangs in the air. It just beats Suryakumar Yadav at point and runs to the fence. That also brings up the 200. Seven runs off the over.

  • March 22, 2023 16:27
    AUS 196/6 in 37 overs

    Axar to continue. WICKET! Stoinis dares to clear the long on fence but is caught. He is the third Aussie batter whose attempt to clear the straight boundary has led to a fall of wicket. Gill takes the catch again. Axar breaks the partnership. And Australia is six down even before the 40-over mark.

    Marcus Stoinis c Shubman Gill b Patel 25 (26b 3x4 0x6)

Carey cuts on back foot to pick one run. Stoinis gets down on one knee and plays the ball to mid off. Umpire signals a no ball for having more than four fielders outside the circle. FREE HIT. Carey capitalises the extra delivery with a SIX. It is full and straight and Carey hits it over Axar’s head. Single to finish and Carey will retain strike.

  • March 22, 2023 16:11
    AUS 173/5 in 34 overs

    Shami returns. Beats Carey to start off. The next two balls are connected by Carey but fielded at mid off and mid on, respectively. Just two runs off it. Carey goes for a drive on the final delivery but gets if from the toe end of the bat. Luckily it flies over point and lands safely.

    AUS 161/5 in 31 overs

    Kuldeep Yadav in his 7th over. Carey slog sweeps to deep mid-wicket for a run. FOUR - This time Stoinis reverse sweeps to beat the fielder at shot third. 5 WIDES. The ball pitches on leg stump and turns. The keeper and Kohli at leg slip are beaten as the ball races away to the fence. The ball bobs up into Kohli’s hands. Appeals follow but the umpire shakes his head. Stoinis gives away a smile at the appeal.

    AUS 126/4 in 25 overs

    Kuldeep to Labuschagne. A cheeky reverse sweep for a couple. A single to long off. WICKET! Kuldeeps gets rid of Warner. He is looking for a big hit over mid-wicket. The ball spins more than he anticipates and that induces a top edge. Hardik Pandya is required to cover some distance from long on to complete the catch. Australia four down. Alex Carey joins Labuschagne. Appeal on the first ball. The ball keeps straight and strikes Carey on the pads. Seemes like tht was gone but India does not take a review. Single on the last delivery.

It is a challenge for us under pressure. It is nice to be in this kind of situation. Australia is a great team. You can always test your depth. It is important that we try and test ourselves. We’re going with the same team. Important to give the guys a bit of run.

    Pitch Report

    Ajit Agarkar: Very unsual this series. We’ve had low scores and the bowlers have gotten assistance. This one has a nice even covering of grass. But there is a patch of roughness right in the middle. The surface is hard. The roughness might come to play in the first innings. Every now and then the ball might grip. We might get two-paced deliveries, but only in the first innings.

    Earlier this month, India retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after the last Test culminated in a drab draw at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. It was a series that oscillated between a Test of fewer than three days to a Test that, in a parallel world, would have continued for more than a week. So, the shift from the much-discussed, much-abused Test pitches and peering into the future of the “five-day” format to limited-overs cricket has been a welcome one.

    Ahead of the series decider at the refurbished M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, to be played on Wednesday, the three-match One-Day International (ODI) series is locked at 1-1 and has lived up to the vaunts that these games have been a slightly more thorough examination of the overall quality of the two sides than the preceding red-ball face-offs.

    India secured a five-wicket win over Australia in the series-opening clash in Mumbai before Mitchell Starc ripped through India’s top order with five wickets to lay the platform for a crushing 10-wicket Australia win in Visakhapatnam.

    IND vs AUS: India top-order in focus as Starc threat looms in Chennai series-decider
