India sealed the five-game series with a comprehensive win over the team from down under. They absolutely outclassed the opposition with some good death bowling and fantastic batting. It looked like Australia were in the game with some intent after Finch and Warner started the proceedings with some great shots.
David Warner and Aaron Finch played some nice shots in their 70-run partnership. The former after failing in the previous games looked in control today but was cleaned by Hardik Pandya. However, after the fall of the first wicket, Australia stitched a great partnership. Finch and Smith added 154 runs together and gave a great platform.
However, India clawed their way back after picking up the wickets of Finch and Smith in the span of 4 overs. The wickets kept on tumbling hereafter as Australia had to settle for a moderate 293. Indore is a happy hunting ground for the Indian batters, and hence 293 was getable. Indian openers came out to bat and scored some quick runs. Both the openers scored a stylish 70 to take India closer to a series win.
The opening partnership was worth 139 runs as India looked in control. But after losing their openers in quick succession Hardik Pandya handled the innings well. He built a 56 run partnership with the captain and then a 78 run partnership with Manish Pandey to take India home. He scored 78 off 72 balls. India eventually won the game by 5 wickets in the 48th over.
