Australia scored 121 runs in 11 overs without losing a wicket on a pitch that looked like a pacer’s paradise when India batted. It can be said that India tried to bat against Mitchell Starcs. Even so, he could not last more than 26 overs. Virat Kohli’s innings ended with 117 runs. Australia ended the entire match in 37 overs by picking up runs in the spirit of T20.
Visakhapatnam was expected to receive rain from 5 am on Sunday. The match was likely to be reduced to overs. But all that is before the start of the match. The game ended at 5.30 minutes. Australia ended the game before the clouds started forming in the sky. No need to think about the rain. Australia’s innings can be said to have rained some sixes. India did not allow it to be too much. Because how many boundaries are killed in the target of 118 runs. Akshar Patel hit two sixes in India’s innings. Four became nine. Australia hit 16. In other words, Australia’s two openers, Mitchell Marsh and Travis Head, scored 100 runs by hitting boundaries out of 121 runs. He ran the remaining 21 runs.
Questions will be raised about the batting of India’s batsmen. Shubman Gill and Suryakumar Yadav were dismissed almost identically in two consecutive matches. India has started thinking of the young opener in all three types of cricket. But he can’t resist the temptation to extend the bat to balls outside the offstump. He got out in the same way in both the matches. Suryakumar did not understand Stark’s words. Like the previous match, Starc found his feet in front of the wicket in this match as well.

Indian batsmen’s weakness against left-arm pacers is long-standing. Rohit can’t get out of it. And if that pacer is someone as experienced as Starc, then there is no question. After the match, Starc said that he had done his homework on the Indian batsmen. He understood Suryakumar’s weakness. That is what he was saying in Visakhapatnam. That is the success. But did the Indian batters do that homework? The munchiana needed to play Stark was not seen in Shubman.
Australia batted first and scored 188 runs in the last match. Starc took Virat’s wicket in that match. He dismissed Virat for the first time in one-day cricket. Couldn’t make it today. Virat was the only one playing against the Australian bowlers. He scored 31 runs off 35 balls. Trying to stay at the crease. But one batter after another got out from the opposite side. Nathan Ellis took Virat’s wicket. He was lbw. Virat did not even try to get a review.
Series 1-1. Last match in Chennai. The importance of that match increased on March 22. Who will win the series will be decided in that match. Rohit will want to win the toss in that match. Because if you bat earlier, there will be danger of such disaster. If you bat later, you will still have a chance to see the target.
