Kasprowicz confident of Australia turnaround in Indore

Team India beat Australia by 5 wickets in the third ODI played between the two sides at Indore.

India defeated Australia by five wickets to capture the five-match series with 3-0 lead.

They had started the processions brilliantly with both the openers Aaron Finch and David Warner accumulating runs in the beginning, the innings was further paced by skipper Steve smith who scored a handy half century and Finch meanwhile claimed his 8th ODI hundred.

Australia must win to keep the series alive after slumping to 2-0 down with losses in Chennai and Kolkata.

Electing to bat, the Aussies managed a competitive total, thanks mainly to comeback man Aaron Finch. With 181 runs, he's the highest run-getter in the series and only three bowlers have got more wickets than his five scalps. Icing on the cake was the No 1 ranking on the ODI table.

The shot of the match came in the 45th over when Pandya waited till the very end to just whisk a short one from Marcus Stoinis over 'keeper Peter Handscomb's head just when the ball was crossing his head. Rahane fell soon after making his 50 years and Kohli got out on 92 yet they had established the framework of a solid complete for the center and lower arrange. Couple of overs later, Rahane too perished as he was adjudged LBW off the bowling of Pat Cummins for 70. I wanted to target the left-arm spinner and when I got a few sixes, I knew I could take some time.

He has become the cynosure of all eyes with his six-hitting prowess but Hardik Pandya says it's not a skill he has developed overnight as he has been clearing the ropes easily since childhood.

The stage was set for Australia to go for the kill, being placed 234 for two in 40 overs, but they failed miserably.

1 - Rohit Sharma is now at the top of the list of batsmen with most sixes against Australia in worldwide cricket. On the second ball of the over, the Mumbai Indians all-rounder tried to cut Cummins between point and backward point but played it straight to the fielder. With the way team India is heading, it is likely that Kohli could surpass the figure and set a new record in the fourth ODI.

The spin pair of Kuldeep and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who had tormented the visitors in the first two ODIs, also came under pressure from Smith and Finch but the slow bowlers managed to pick crucial wickets.

"It's pretty ordinary. Not good enough for an Australian cricket team and we need to start turning the results around and winning some games".
