India restrict Australia to 242-9 after Patel bags three

Peter Handscomb and Warner tried to steady the Australian innings before the smashing opener fell prey to Patel on 53 (62). Apart from Patel, Jaspreet Bumrah took two wickets. 12 runs of Bumrah's 3rd over.

Australia T20 squad: Steve Smith (c), David Warner, Jason Behrendorff, Dan Christian, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Moises Henriques, Glenn Maxwell, Tim Paine, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa.

After winning the toss, Australians went off to yet another flying start, much like in the games at Indore and Bengaluru. We have been put under pressure, and we have come back four times to win four games. The wristspinners took 5 for 63, bowling nine out of the 21 overs in a rain-shortened game.

New Zealand gets hung parliament
Opinion polls leading up to the vote had been volatile with two recent ones giving National a near 10 point lead over Labour. Greens leader James Shaw offered an olive branch to Peters.

Rohit was in a 124-run opening stand with Ajinkya Rahane (61) and then combined with his captain Virat Kohli (39) for a partnership of 99 to seal the match for his country. India defended 252 with Kuldeep taking a hat-trick.

After starting with a maiden, Bumrah was guilty of bowling either too full or too short as the risky duo of Warner and Finch took him to the cleaners.

This is the first time since the 2015 series against Bangladesh that Virat Kohli failed to score a century in an ODI bilateral series.

The bowlers' success has been because they've stuck to their brief, of trying to attack even when Australia have been on top.

In reply, Sharma and Rahane made batting look easy on a two-paced track and extended the teams' dominance in the match and the series. "One boundary here and there doesn't make a difference".

"We will have a good look at the one day competition back home and hopefully a few guys can jump out of the pack and score big runs and bowl really well as well". We've done really well in the series, capitalizing in the first three games and coming back hard. That is what these guys have done, all the spinners and the fast bowlers as well. Both of them once again proved why they are rated so high as death bowlers. And having been thumped by South Africa 5-0 previous year, it looked like this series was headed the same direction before that win. The game is going to be played at Vidarbha Cricket Association Ground, which is located in Nagpur. We talk a lot in the middle, we discuss when need to take risk and when not to. "These things help in building partnership".
