India’s ninth consecutive ODI win also ensured they are now the top-ranked team in Tests and ODIs
Ply Bazar News Desk : All-rounder Hardik Pandya celebrated his promotion in the batting order with a breezy 78 to help secure India’s series-clinching five-wicket victory in the third One-Day International against Australia on Sunday.
Three of India’s top four batsmen scored 70 or more as the hosts chased down a 294-run victory target with 13 balls to spare for their third successive victory in the five-match series.
Earlier, Aaron Finch smashed 124 on his return but Australia, cruising at 224-1 at one stage, suffered a mini-collapse to settle for 293-6 at the Holkar Stadium.
India’s ninth consecutive ODI win also ensured they are now the top ranked team both in Tests and the One-day format.
