"It's a shame for Australia that they lost first two matches", Kasprowicz told ANI on the sidelines of a programme hosted by the Australian High Commission for sports law and governance. They will be desperate to beat India in the third ODI, and stay alive in the series. "We are so proud of you", Banerjee wrote on her Twitter handle tonight.

An Aaron Finch century hasn't been enough to lift Australia past 300 in its do-or-die one-day worldwide against India in Indore. Between November 2008 and February 2009, India had a run of as many successive victories. In the first ODI, in Chennai, he had bagged the award for his returns of 83 runs and two wickets. Together with Finch, the 28-year-old started to build a substantial partnership.

India vs Australia highlights 3rd ODI: Finally, Oz skipper Steve Smith's side has shown some kind of fightback in the ODI series. Opening batsman Aaron Finch (124 off 125 balls) and David Warner (42 off 44 balls) provided a near-perfect start for the visitors. The spell of confusion they are under was omnipresent in both the games.

New Zealand votes in knife-edge election
New Zealand First Party, led by controversial anti-immigration figure Winston Peters, had a 7.5% vote share. New Zealand First has nine seats and Greens, which won 5.8 percent of the votes, have seven.

But Yadav eventually claimed his wicket when Finch hit a slog sweep straight down Kedar Jadhav's throat at deep mid-wicket.

That brought Peter Handscomb to the crease but he and Marcus Stoinis struggled to launch a meaningful assault on the bowlers in the death overs. After Rohit Sharma's imperious power-hitting collaborated with Ajinkya Rahane's class and furnace, Australia was well out of the game even though India was still over 100 runs short of the target.

It is important to note that Kuldeep Yadav, who turned the ball through the wrist, made history through hat-tricks in the second ODI. Matthew Wade's replacement stretched low to his right for an unsuccessful one-handed effort and would have been relieved when the beneficiary, Rohit Sharma, was dismissed soon after for 71. In this match, all his four sixes came off the left-arm spinner Ashton Agar, whom he smashed for 37 runs off 20 balls. So KL Rahul remains in argument, although India is having outstanding Pandey which is worth for the team. In this way, just one match away from capturing Team India series and he would not want to wait for the fourth or fifth match to do this work.
