India vs Australia 3rd T20I: Krunal Pandya came good at the Sydney Cricket Ground in a must-win tie for India as he bagged 36/4 in his stipulated four overs to trigger Australia’s middle order collapse in the 3rd and final T20I. Krunal bagged the best figures for a spinner in Australia against Australia as he scalped the wickets of Glenn Maxwell, Ben McDermott, D’Arcy Short, and Alex Carey. Allrounder Glen Maxwell (3/10 in two overs) owned the record earlier. Ireland’s left-arm spinner George Dockrell is third on the list with 3 for 18 in three while David Hussey is fourth in the list with figures of 3 for 25 in four overs.

Meanwhile, Australia have a competitive total on the board in the third and final T20I against India. A very good finish from Marcus Stoinis and Nathan Coulter-Nile. 57 came in the final 5 overs, out of 27 were scored in the last 2. After opting to bat, Australia got off to a good start with Finch and Short motoring along quite well as they scored 49 in the Powerplay. Some wickets fell in quick succession when the spinners were introduced but Carey pulled things back somewhat. However, that late flurry from Stoinis and NCN, where they scored 33 runs in 16 balls between them, put the Kangaroos past 160.
