Australia's final score is modest due to a middle-order breakdown



Australia threatened to get even more runs in the final ODI in Chennai before suffering a dramatic collapse that caused them to finish with a small total.

Australia had won the powerplay after deciding to bat on a dry pitch at the MA Chidambaram stadium owing to some unrestricted batting by their openers. both Mitchell Marsh and Travis Head. Mohammed Shami and Mohammad Siraj, India's top pacers, took the brunt of their assault. In the opening eight overs, the pair primarily hit boundaries off dot balls, scoring six fours and two sixes. Even after Axar Patel, a spinner, was brought, the assault went on.

India was unable to recover until the eleventh over, when Hardik Pandya was brought in. Hardik caught Head at third man in the same over to minimize the damage after he saw Shubman Gill hit Head on 17 with deep square leg. He got Australia's skipper Steve Smith caught behind in his next over for a duck, adding to his score. Hardik disrupted the batters' free-flowing strokeplay by using a mix of cutters and back of length balls.

The wicket of Mitchell Marsh, who missed out on what could have been three consecutive fifties in the series, was the cherry on top of that stretch. Hardik's cutter saw Marsh hanging back and threw his bat out, only to hit the stumps on the inside.

Australia was put under pressure by Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav's disciplined bowling and quick wickets. The latter, which had longer and more aggressive lines, held David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne back for a short time despite their 40-run stand. However, as the pressure mounted, both gave up on trying to hit Yadav and holing out too far off.

Australia were at risk of being bowled out for a score below par at 138/5. However, Australia was able to surpass the 250-run mark thanks to innovative lower-order partnerships, such as the 58 runs shared by Alex Carey and Marcus Stoinis and the 42 runs shared by Sean Abbott and Ashton Agar. Even though each of them started well, India's spinners kept hitting back. While Stoinis and Abbott attempted to hit Kuldeep, Axar defeated them and spun a shot past Carey's defense.

Mohammad Siraj took a few wickets to help Australia get out of the game faster, which took 49 overs.
