Australia beat India by a record

Australia beat India by a record

Rahul dropped Steven Smith’s catch at long-off for 19 runs. On the very next ball, Aksar hit Green for a six and completed his 26-ball fifty.

At the end of 10 overs, Australia was 109 for 1. Then the picture changes.

In the next over, Aksar broke the 40-ball 70-run partnership by returning Green with the first ball. Greene was caught by Kohli while attempting a six. 8 fours and 4 sixes made his innings of 61 runs.

Umesh Yadav dismissed Smith (35 off 24) and Glenn Maxwell (1 off 3) in the same over. Both were cut behind. And India got wickets twice after the umpire did not respond to appeals for review. Josh English (10 balls 17) could not survive.

Losing 5 wickets for 145 runs, Australia was under a lot of pressure. They needed 61 runs in the last 5 overs. That stands at 40 runs in the last 3 overs.

In the eighteenth over, the storm blew over Herschel. Two sixes hit him by Wade, one by David. However, Wade also gave a return catch. But it was quite difficult. The bowler could not collect it. 22 runs come from this over.

In the next over, Wade eased the equation by hitting three consecutive fours off Bhuvneshwar’s last three balls. In the last over with 2 runs needed, David got out on Chehel’s first ball, but Pat Cummins ended the match with a boundary on the next ball.

Wade’s 21-ball 45-run innings was decorated with 6 fours and 2 sixes.

Aksar’s brilliant bowling of 3 wickets for 17 runs in 4 overs did not help the team.

The challenge to save the series is in front of India in the second T20 in Nagpur next Friday.
