Australia young fast bowler, Jhye Richardson got the India National Cricket Team captain, Virat Kohli for the third time in the ODI series. In the Melbourne match, Richardson restricted Kohli to touch the fifty-run mark; as he found the edge off his bat. Meanwhile, it happened during the 30th over of the chase; when Kohli, who a few balls earlier changed his bat, knicked one to the keeper, Alex Carey on 46 off 62 balls.
Australia looks set to upset India at the MCG
The three-match ODI series stands 1-1 at the moment. In Sydney, Australia won the clash by 34 runs, despite Rohit Sharma slamming his 22nd ODI hundred. Meanwhile, in the following game at the Adelaide Oval, record 39th century from Kohli, and unbeaten 55 from MS Dhoni; India levelled the series with a six-wicket win.
Jump to the final match at the ‘G’, India bowled first after winning the toss. Yuzvendra Chahal, one of the three changes in the line-up for India grabbed headlines. The leg-spinner bagged his maiden six-wicket haul in ODIs. As a result, he became the first spinner to have taken more than five wickets in a One-Day match in Australia. Courtesy his joint-best figures by an Indian bowler in Australia, Chahal helped India wrap Aussies first innings on 230.
Virat led India’s chase
Rohit Sharma departed early, courtesy some good bowling and brilliant slip catching. Dhawan and Virat Kohli then tried steading the ship, before gave a catch to Stoinis off his bowling. The India captain, in the meanwhile, had found some gaps, maybe not at will; but enough to get the scoreboard ticking.
When it appeared like MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli could cruise India past the winning line again, Kohli edged one off Richardson. The fast bowler must consider himself special, as for the third time in as many games, Jhye had Kohli’s number. This time, the right-hander had gone for the drive but didn’t find the middle of the bat. As a result, he edged one and got out.
