IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Highlights
Australia defeated India by five wickets thanks to an absolutely unbelievable run chase almost entirely spearheaded by Glenn Maxwell. Ruturaj Gaikwad scored a century to lead India to a 222/3 total. Even though Australia’s batsmen consistently lost wickets, they managed to stay within striking distance of the needed run rate. In the end, Maxwell was essentially the only player who could maintain their run rate as Marcus Stoinis laboured on the opposite end. It was nearly a one-man show. It took Captain Matthew Wade some time to get going as well, but in the end, he was able to support Maxwell in his attack. Wade was on 28 off 16 balls when Maxwell finished undefeated on 104 off 48 balls, with a six and three fours off the final four balls of the match.
Earlier, when batting first, India got off to a rough start as Ishan Kishan and Yashasvi Jaiswal fell early. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Suryakumar then steadied the vessel. Before SKY was dismissed for 39 off 29, the two scored 57 off 47 balls for the third wicket. Since then, Gaikwad has persevered and made an even stronger statement against Tilak Varma, celebrating his 50th birthday in the process. After that, Gaikwad picked up a significant pace, finally surpassing 100 in 52 balls. Glenn Maxwell bowled the last over of the Indian innings, which went for a massive thirty runs.
