Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: India vs Australia, 3rd ODI, Ranchi
Strike 3! Pat Cummins gets the ball to come in and shatters Ambati Rayudu's stumps. India are reduced to 27 for 3 but take no credit away from the bowlers.
Rohit Sharma follows! Gets trapped by Pat Cummins. The on-field umpire turns down the appeal but Australia take the DRS and get the decision in their favour. India have lost both their openers now. Not the worst thing to happen. More time for Ambati Rayudu and Vijay Shankar to push their respective cases.
WICKET Australia have struck early. Shikhar Dhawan fails to keep his cut down and hits it to the right of Glenn Maxwell at backward point. The fielder does well to take that. Dhawan's iffy form continues.
Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan have walked out to open India's chase
Marcus Stoinis and Alex Carey couldn't find as many boundaries as they would have liked in the death overs but they took Australia to 313 for 5. Given where Australia stood at the end of the 30th over, there is enough reason for them to feel disappointed. Conditions aren't going to get any easier for the Australian bowlers and despite a 300+ score, India would believe they are placed well in this game.
Marcus Stoinis and Alex Carey are struggling to get the boundaries. Poor fielding has helped them too but the scoring rate isn't going as well as they would like.
DOUBLE WICKET Australia are falling apart here. Soon after Shaun Marsh holes out in the deep, Peter Handscomb is trapped legbefore. From 258 for 2, they have been reduced to 263 for 5
RUN OUT This may not have been the best of days on the field for India. But Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni have displayed their respective and collective brilliance on the field to run out a dangerous looking Glenn Maxwell. Crucial wicket at this stage of the innings.
Usman Khawaja has played his part and been dismissed trying to pull a length delivery away only to be caught at mid wicket. Mohammed Shami with the wicket. With less than 12 overs to go, not the worst time to get out.
Usman Khawaja has masterfully applied himself today and brought up his maiden ODI ton. His 107-ball century has laid the perfect platform for a late assault. With David Warner expected to return soon, Khawaja has done his case for world cup selection some good.
Kuldeep Yadav has finally struck! Aaron Finch is trapped legbefore. He takes a review but in vain. First strike. 193 for 1.
There is one school of thought which believes, the way to project a score in ODIs is to double the score from Over No 30. If we are to follow that, Australia should end with 372. The Indian spinners have proved ineffective so far. Of the last 20 overs, Jasprit Bumrah will have to bowl 6. And he will be India's best hope.
This is now the highest partnership for any wicket in the five ODIs at this venue surpassing 153 between Glenn Maxwell and George Bailey for the 5th wicket vs India in 2013.
Dropped catch, misfields, there has been everything today by the Indian fielders, by the best of them - Ravindra Jadeja, Shikhar Dhawan and Vijay Shankar - aiding Australia as they chug along strong in their innings as they go past the 150-run mark without losing a wicket.
130/0 - This is now the highest partnership for Australia for any wicket since the start of 2018 (in 19 ODIs)
FIFTY Usman Khawaja has joined the 50-club with his opening partner. As our statsboy Deepu says, this is the first instance of two openers scoring a fifty vs India in India since the Bengaluru ODI in 2017, where David Warner and Aaron Finch registered fifty-plus scores.
FIFTY Aaron Finch has stroked Kedar Jadhav to three sixes and, in the process, also brought up his half-century and the century stand of the opening partnership with Usman Khawaja. Australia are going really strong but India haven't brought Kuldeep Yadav into the attack as yet.
Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja have put on a second consecutive half-century stand for the opening wicket. This too has come at a rate close to run-a-ball, without taking too many risks.
Mohammed Shami, who got hit on his ankle by an Aaron Finch straight drive, is out of the field now. Yuzvendra Chahal has come in as a substitute fielder.
India have lost a review in only the second over of their innings. Jasprit Bumrah gets the ball to come in and hits Aaron Finch's pads. The umpire turns down the appeal but Bumrah was convinced and urges the captain to take the DRS. But in vain.
Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja have got off the mark with a boundary each, and given enough indication of the fast outfield. Expect a high-scorer today.
India won the toss and elected to field. Virat Kohli feels dew will play a major factor in the second innings. India have gone in with an unchanged XI, which means no Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Australia have made only one change to their XI - Jhye Richardson comes in place of Nathan Coulter-Nile, who has gone home for the birth of his child. Surprisingly, Australia have persisted with two spinners for this game.
Australia (Playing XI): Aaron Finch (c), Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Pat Cummins, Jhye Richardson, Nathan Lyon, Adam Zampa
India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), Ambati Rayudu, Vijay Shankar, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (w), Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah
