Skipper Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja led the charge for Australia when they faced India in the 3rd ODI. Their opening partnership of 193 runs placed their team ahead of the opposition by miles. Even though they didn’t finish as they’d have liked, Australian bowlers have a big enough total that they could defend.
In the second innings of the game, Adam Zampa was the man who did the job for Australia. By picking up the wickets of Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav, he ensured that the hosts couldn’t reach the target. Ultimately, India fell short by 32 runs as Australia won their first game in this series. Both the teams, confident in their own ways, will enter into the fourth ODI. While one team will look to win the series, the other will want to level it.
