Mitchell Marsh is bowled out by Hardik Pandya! Pandya has a talent for taking wickets, and this one is a crucial breakthrough for India. Marsh displays poor judgment by not moving his feet much and failing to anticipate the ball’s inward movement.
Pandya delivers it on a good length outside off, and Marsh hesitantly pushes at it, only managing a thick inside edge that collides with the stumps. Despite throwing away his start, Marsh has had a fantastic series with the bat.
With a brilliant display of line and length, Indian star all-rounder Hardik Pandya has taken all three wickets in the match so far. Australia started with a fantastic first-wicket partnership, scoring 68 runs in just 10.5 overs. However, following the loss of the first wicket, the Australian team is now under considerable pressure.
In the series-deciding third one-day international against India in Chennai on Wednesday, Australia’s interim captain Steve Smith won the toss and elected to bat first. The visitors made two changes to the team that thrashed their opponents in the previous match in Visakhapatnam on Sunday.
Opener David Warner, who recovered from his second Test elbow hairline fracture, replaces all-rounder Cameron Green. Meanwhile, spinner Ashton Agar takes the place of pacer Nathan Ellis.
