Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

That concludes this T20 series. India clearly the better side tonight and probably unlucky with the weather in Melbourne not to win the series 2-1. Now we move on to the Test matches. India play a tour game against the Cricket Australia XI starting on Wednesday at the SCG. The Australian Test squad with the exception of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood will play in Shield matches starting on Monday and Tuesday. The first Test starts in Adelaide on December 6.

On behalf of Alagappan Muthu and all the team it’s goodbye from the SCG.

10.30 pm Krunal Pandya is Man of the Match for his 4 for 36. “Obviously it feels really great to contribute in a winning side. I had to back myself after that first game. It feels good to overcome those type of hurdles.”

“The best part of team India is they back all of the players whether you are doing well or poorly.”

Shikhar Dhawan is Player of the Series. Two excellent innings in Brisbane and Sydney. He gets the crowd cheering. “I enjoy entertaining people and I enjoy playing entertaining cricket. Great to get such support from India supporters here. It’s good that we could draw this series and ending on a winning note.”

Aaron Finch: “I think they batted extremely well in the powerplay. We had a bit of a moment of madness when we lost a couple of wickets in our innings. I thought Zamps and Maxy bowled brilliantly.” “I thought that the guys had a plan and unfortunately we didn’t execute in the middle overs there. I think there’s still a fair bit of work to do but there’s positive signs. I’m feeling really good. Looking forward to getting up to Brisbane (for the Shield game).”

Virat Kohli: “Things become pretty easy when those two guys play like that at the top. I think DK showed great composure at the death along with me stringing a partnership to get us home. I think Maxy and Zampa bowled very well. I thought overall, skill wise we were better than Australia.”

“I thought with the ball we were more professional today. I thought it was 180 type of wicket. Those 15 runs less were crucial. A level series is a great show of how the teams have played.”

Bharath Seervi: Virat Kohli has remained not out 14 times when chasing in T20Is and India won the match every time.

Kaushik: “Kohli’s innings reminded of his chase in the world T20 semis in Mohali. What a player! ”

Maaren: “Not to forget Dk. He is slowly earning the name of a finisher..”

10.15 pm This chase was put to bed in the first five overs, with Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan running amok. Australia couldn’t hit a single six today, but those two were smoking every other ball out of the ground. But Mitchell Starc, playing his first T20I in two years – his first at home in four – got that first wicket with his searing pace. That strike helped his team-mates settle down and take the game deep. In the end though, as disciplined as Adam Zampa was, and as cleverly as Andrew Tye played, they couldn’t get Virat Kohli out. And in a chase, that usually means one thing. India win.

19.44Tye to Kohli swings it out to the vacant areas around midwicket and celebrates with arms aloft. India level the series FOUR
19.34Tye to Kohli thumps it down the ground. It’s a half-volley, in Kohli’s swinging arc, and he hammers it away. He’s pumped. He’s punching the air. He’s sensing the series going level FOUR
19.20Tye to Kohli is that not a wide, asks Kohli, after he doesn’t make contact with another short, slower ball outside off no run
India need five off five now
19.10Tye to Kohli beats him with a slower ball that Kohli swings across the line and misses completely no run
India need five off six and Tye’s going to have to work overtime to save Australia here

End of Over No.19 | 11 runs | India 160/4

Anirudh: “Stop with this “filling in dhoni’s shoes” crap… one plaher cannot be replaced by another…not sachin, not dhoni, not anyone… its replaced by the team collective… and that looks currently better than with dhoni in the squad…give the kids more than a few games to learn”
18.62Starc to Karthik walks across outside off and ends up too far away from the short ball outside leg. In the end, he just about gets to it with a pull through square leg 2 runs
18.51Starc to Kohli pulls the short ball from outside off to deep square leg 1 run
18.41Starc to Karthik whip of the wrists sending the fuller delivery looking for the middle stump away through square leg 1 run
18.34Starc to Karthik spears it to the point boundary! It’s not quite the yorker Starc is looking for outside off. But it is exactly what DK is ready for. Stays balanced at the crease. And more importantly, low, as well and opens the face of the bat. Lovely stuff FOUR
18.21Starc to Kohli 141 kph, tries to whip a back of a length ball angled into his thighs, but he’s into the shot a tiny bit early and the ball lobs off his thigh 1 leg bye
18.12Starc to Kohli hustles it away towards the deep midwicket boundary as Starc bowls a full one on off stump from round the wicket 2 runs
Andrew McGlashan says the crowd is 37,339 strong at SCG. A record for a T20I at the ground. Meanwhile, India need 16 off 12

End of Over No.18 | 11 runs | India 149/4

17.60Tye to Karthik appeal for a catch off the boot. But the umpire Abood says no. Decent ball though, tailing in late, cramping Kathik who was charging down the pitch again no run
17.56Tye to Karthik so much height on it! And it’s on the second tier. Mistake from the bowler, going short, the ball sitting up to be pulled to oblivion SIX
17.41Tye to Kohli mis-hit behind square leg, but it brings up his fifty. The slower short ball has him playing a touch too early; reaching in front of him as he goes for the pull 1 run
17.31Tye to Karthik comes down the pitch and drives the full delivery tailing into him to mid-off 1 run
Muhammed Riyas: “Before playing that shot, even before coming out to bat, Pant should have reminded, studied and said himself a thousand times that his responsibility is to wear the giant shoes of one of the greatest player ever witnessed in the game! It is absolute criminal to get out in such manners repeatedly.”
17.21Tye to Kohli gets up with the short ball outside off and swats it to deep point 1 run
17.12Tye to Kohli taps it into the vacant midwicket region, always looking for two, and getting it in the end 2 runs

End of Over No.17 | 13 runs | India 138/4

India need 27 off 18. One over of Starc. One over of Tye. One over of Couler-NIle?
16.62Maxwell to Karthik goes for the reverse scoop, and though he only makes contact with the glove, it’s enough to get a couple right over the keeper’s head 2 runs
16.52Maxwell to Karthik run-out chance at the non-strikers. Karthik nudges it to the right of Maxwell and thinks there’s a straightforward single there. But Maxwell hares across, grabs it with his right hand, takes aim, but misses the target 2 runs
16.41Maxwell to Kohli works it through midwicket, along the ground this time 1 run
16.36Maxwell to Kohli launches it over deep midwicket! Spectacular hit, coming down the track, and even though he isn’t to the pitch of the ball, he holds his balance and that’s where he gets all that power from SIX
16.21Maxwell to Karthik sweeps the loopy delivery on off stump away to backward square leg on the boundary 1 run
16.11Maxwell to Kohli full on middle, Kohli tucks it through midwicket 1 run
India need 40 off 24 and here’s Maxwell. This could be big….

Dishant: “Dhoni’s lack of runs probably has fasttracked Pant but he looks an unfinished product. His go to shot is a slog over midwicket with limited strike rotating ability. I believe DK can handle the gloves and India can get another bat in place of Pant. ”

End of Over No.16 | 12 runs | India 125/4

Papa Smurf: “Go Tye. He should be chosen for tests. His form is incredible at the moment, and would win the series for Australia if chosen. Also, Maxi needs to be chosen, as well as Steve Smith being un-banned.”
15.60Tye to Karthik opens the face against a length ball on off stump, but he finds point no run
15.51Tye to Kohli back of a length and outside off, Kohli taps it behind point 1 run
15.40Tye to Kohli slower ball, and that lack of pace is useful in deceiving Kohli, as he plays the flick and misses no run
15.36Tye to Kohli times it perfectly – both the step down the pitch and the bat swing that comes down and goes straight through the line of the ball. Outstanding shot over long-off SIX
15.24Tye to Kohli lashes it over point. Excellent work from Kohli, getting on top of the ball, waiting on it so he can get the gap behind point FOUR
15.10Tye to Kohli comes down the pitch, only to inside edge the back of a length ball that denies him the room he wants no run
15.11Tye to Kohli Kohli yells at himself after he fails to make contact with a length ball wandering away down leg 1 wide

End of Over No.15 | 4 runs | India 113/4

India need 52 off 30 balls. And with Kohli still around, Australia can’t relax.

Prasanna S: “Rahul and Pant should be replaced with Karthik and Pandey in limited overs at-least till the world cup. DK has shown enough willingness to guts it out in the middle and got some promising starts. KL can be considered only as a backup opener and looks hopeless in the middle order while Pant never stops playing poor shots almost every game. Manish Pandey or Rahane should be persisted with for the time being.”

14.60Zampa to Karthik steps out but he ends up too close to the ball, yorking himself as he tries to drive to cover no run
