Adam Zampa took four wickets as Australia defeated India by 21 runs in the third and final ODI to win the series 2-1. India was trying to chase a score of 270, but they lost many wickets in the middle and were all out for 248 runs.
The Australian captain, Steve Smith, won the toss and chose to bat first. Mitchell Marsh scored the most runs for Australia with 47. In Australia’s innings, Kuldeep Yadav, and Hardik Pandya both took three wickets each to limit them to a score of 269.
Rohit Sharma and Shumban Gill had a great start for India in the match, hitting many runs as Mitchell Starc, the main bowler for Australia, struggled. India was doing well until Sharma got out to Sean Abbott after scoring 30 runs in just 17 balls. After his dismissal, Virat Kohli came to bat. Kohli and Lokesh Rahum added 69 runs for the third wicket, but Zampa took Kohli’s wicket when he was on 54. Yadav was out on the next ball, and India was struggling. Although Hardik Pandya played well, he couldn’t control himself and got out while trying to hit Zampa for a six. Jadeja also got out similarly.
Zampa was named the man of the match, but he credited Agar for changing the game by dismissing Kohli. According to Zampa, the other bowlers who bowled before him also played a crucial role in the team’s victory.
