India won the T20I series against Australia by 2-0 as they registered a stunning victory against the hosts by 6 wickets at Sydney Cricket Ground on Sunday. This is also India’s 10th successive win away from home in T20Is (3 in West Indies, 5 in New Zealand and 2 in Australia).

Winning the toss, Indian skipper Virat Kohli sent Australia to bat first. The hosts managed to put up an above-par total of 194 for 5 in their 20 overs. Australia had an explosive start as captain Matthew Wade smashed 58 runs off 32 deliveries including 10 boundaries and 1 maximum. Steve Smith also added 46 runs to the scoreboard while Glenn Maxwell and Moises Henriques scored 22 off 13 and 26 off 18 respectively.

For India, T Natajaran emerged as the most successful bowler as he took 2 wickets while bowling at an economy of 5. Along with that, Shardul Thakur and Yuzvendra Chahal also had one wicket to their name.

Chasing 195, the opening batsmen Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul collected 56 runs in 5.1 overs to give India a decent start. The pacer Andrew Tye gave the much-needed first breakthrough to the hosts as he scalped the wicket of Rahul, who was playing at 30, in the sixth over. However, this didn’t affect the Indian team much as Dhawan scored a stunning half-century ( 52 runs off 36 deliveries) while skipper Virat Kohli also smashed 40 runs in 24 balls.

In the end, Hardik Pandya smashed the ball all over the park to apply the finishing touch and take India to the victory line. Pandya played a match-defining knock of unbeaten 42 runs off 22 deliveries and was rightly adjudged the Man of the Match. He was aptly supported by middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer who scored 12 runs in 5 balls.

For the hosts, Adam Zampa, Mitchell Swepson, Andrew Tye and Daniel Sams took one wicket each. After this the two teams will meet each other on December 8 for a dead-rubber at Sydney where India would be looking forward to cleansweep the hosts before locking horns in the four-match Test series, starting from December 17 in Adelaide.
