India was up against Australia in the third T20I in Sydney Cricket Ground. Though India tried its best to steal the limelight with a whitewash in the T20I series, Australia was determined enough to grab the final match in their account. After being invited to bat first, Australia posted a good 186 runs on the board. Half-centuries by Matthew Wade (80 of 53) and Glenn Maxwell (54 of 36) shifted too much momentum on Australia.

After winning the match by 12 runs, Australia avoided an embarrassing whitewash in the shortest format of the game. Talking about the presence of fans in Sydney, they gathered in big numbers to extend their support to Men in Blue. However, what caught the limelight was the doppelganger of Virat Kohli. An Indian fan marked his presence in the crowd who exactly looked like Indian skipper Kohli. Whenever the camera moved in front of him, he stood up to wave his hands.

He sported the Indian jersey and also kept the same style of the beard as Virat Kohli. His addition of black sunglasses added more similarities to his look with that of the ace batsman. When the cameraman caught him, he panned the camera towards Virat Kohli on the field, which made fans absolutely gaga. Twitter also flooded after finding Virat’s doppelganger on the ground.

Talking of India’s batting in the game, the opening stand had a huge blow when KL Rahul was sent back by Glenn Maxwell on a two-ball duck. Shikhar Dhawan played a cameo of 28 runs, but the real deal began when Virat Kohli took the responsibility of his shoulders. His thunderous innings of 85 of 61 became the base of India’s chase game, but he couldn’t receive the desired support from the opposite end.

Talking of the bowling performances of both the team, Mitchell Swepson’s brilliant spell turned tables for Australia. He took three wickets at the crucial time while conceding just 23 runs in his spell of four overs. From the Indian end, Washington Sundar named two scalps on his name.
