India Vs Australia 3rd T20, Indian openers gave a solid and better start. They scored 63 runs in the first 5 overs in which Shikhar contributed 41 out of 22 balls. He was LBW by Starc but the job was done. Then, Australian spinners seemed to restrict Indian batsmen. KL Rahul scored 14 out of 20 while Pant was out on the first ball he faced.
It was Captain Kohli and Dinesh Kartik who ended the innings on a winning note. Kartik hit a good sixer when needed and after that Kohli ended the Job in the last over. Kohli scored 61 not out.
The series ended in a tie. The man of the series was rewarded to Shikhar Dhawan for his awesome performance in all 3 matches. It seemed like Rohit and Shikhar had swapped places. After going outside India it feels like Shikhar has gained a freedom while Rohit seems to be soemwhat struggling in the Australian pitches.
