Australian Glenn Maxwell continued to fail against leg spin bowling after he gave away his wicket in a very identical fashion to Yuzvendra Chahal.
The young spinner got better of the attacking middle-order star once again by beating him and getting him stumped behind with the help of MS Dhoni.
This was the third time in the row that Maxwell failed to read the flight and turn against Chahal. It seems the fans can now arguably call Maxwell, the slayer of Ravichandran Ashwin, as Yuzvendra Chahal’s bunny in ODI cricket.
The wicket came at an entirely wrong time as the visitors had lost their well-settled skipper just off the last delivery in the previous over. Three overs before Smith’s departure, Australia were handed the biggest blow of the ongoing game after Aaron Finch was made to depart by Kuldeep Yadav in the 38th overs.
Maxi’s quick departure has now put Australia on the verge of yet another collapse something which has been their Achilles heels in the last two contests. With the final overs approaching, Australia would have loved to have Maxwell in the middle, but the combined brilliance of Chahal and Dhoni proved too much to handle for the unorthodox run-maker.
