India thrash Australia in Bengaluru, clinch the ODI series

Jan 20, 2020 11:06 IST

With Shikhar Dhawan unable to bat due to a shoulder injury, India were a batsman short in the series-deciding 3rd ODI vs Australia but when Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are on song, the men in blue hardly require any other batsman to do the job. Indian skipper and his deputy led from the front as India thrashed the Aussies by 7 wickets in Bengaluru and came from 1-0 down to clinch the ODI series 2-1. Mohammad Shami was the pick of the bowlers with 4 scalps and helped the hosts restrict the Aussies to 286 on a good batting track. Rahul fell for 19 but Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli with 119 and 89 respectively made Australia's bowlers look clueless. Shreyas Iyer with an unbeaten 35-ball-44 then took his side over the finish line. India has now won 15 of its last 17 ODI series.
