While India and Australia are busy in the Bengaluru ODI, which is also a series decider, Australian batsmen Steven Smith and Aaron Finch had the horrific mix-up, and it ultimately cost the wicket of the Aussie limited-overs captain. That dismissal made the Australian captain Finch furious.

The hosts India and the visiting team Australia are playing the third and final game of the three-match ODI series at Bengaluru on Sunday (19th January). While the series is currently 1-1, the winner of Bengaluru ODI will win this series.

Australia captain Aaron Finch decided to bat first after winning the toss. While the dangerous opening batsman David Warner (3) was dismissed cheaply, another opener & skipper Finch tried hard to handle that situation along with Steven Smith. The experienced players were handling that situation very well, but a horrific mix-up between them destroyed that partnership.

That incident happened on the fifth ball of ninth over of Australia’s innings. Steven Smith faced the Indian pacer Mohammed Shami and angled that to the short third man where Ravindra Jadeja‘s desperate attempt led the experienced Australian duo to make that costly blunder. While Smith was unsure for a single, Finch responded very quickly on Smith’s initial move. But while Jadeja quickly grabbed that ball, Smith moved back to the striker-end, but Finch also reached almost to the striker-end crease.

Jadeja’s throw missed the striker-end wickets, and Shreyas Iyer picked that ball at short mid-on. Iyer kept his brain calm and delivered to the bowler Mohammed Shami who easily took off the bails while Finch was far away from the bowling end wicket. Finch tried hard to come back at the non-striker end and save his wicket, but he was not even close on his mission. Finch was furious when he was moving towards the dressing room.

Aaron Finch scored 19 runs and Finch-Smith had 28 runs partnership

Aaron Finch was dismissed on 19 runs while Australia were struggling on 46/2 in 8.5 overs. Finch scored 19 off 26 balls with one four and one six. Finch-Smith had the 28 runs partnership for the second wicket before that dismissal.
