India vs Australia: Bhuvneshwar Kumar takes a blinder to remove Glenn Maxwell

India vs Australia: Bhuvneshwar Kumar takes a blinder to remove Glenn Maxwell

The official broadcaster of India vs Australia ODI Series in India is Sony Sports Network.

India had won the toss and opted to bowl in the third against Australia in Melbourne. Also, by winning this third ODI in Melbourne, India will finish the current 2018-19 tour without having lost a series here. The series is now levelled at 1-1 and with the final match scheduled to be played in a few hours, it will be interesting to see which team between India and Australia comes out on top in the last hurrah. Chasing 299, India got off to a brisk start courtesy openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan.

It took the leggie all of two balls to make an impact, and his double-wicket over rapidly swung the game in India's favour.

Jadhav could enter the squad in place of Rayudu and bat lower down the order with Dhoni moving into the no. 4 slot.

The out-of-form Aussie captain was facing his Indian fast-bowling nemesis Bhuvneshwar Kumar when he and most onlookers were left stunned by a rare turn of events at the MCG.

As it turned out, Finch didn't get a free hit the next ball - instead being trapped in front LBW for 14 runs as Kumar once again got his man.

Meanwhile, Australia made two changes to their playing XI for the series decider.

The Indian quick, who had already taken Finch's scalp in the first two matches, chose to intentionally bowl from well behind the bowler's crease on one of his deliveries in the ninth over. Jhye Richardson has been the pick of the bowlers so far and leads the wicket-takers charts with five wickets.

On the other hand, Australia might ponder to include Adam Zampa in place of Nathan Lyon, who hasn't looked lethal in his bowling. He also achieved the distinction of becoming the first spinner to take six wickets in an ODI Down Under.

Australia's innings began with captain Aaron Finch desperately trying to regain his form, before being the second of the opening pair dismissed inside the first 10 overs. Bhuvneshwar's impressive spell in the second ODI kept India in the game even as debutant Mohammed Siraj leaked runs and it will be interesting to watch if he can build on that performance in the decider.
