India vs Australia 3rd T20I: India could have had it’s the first wicket after Australia won the toss and opted to bat first in the crucial 3rd T20I at Sydney Cricket Ground. Krunal was bowling the eight over when Finch looked to take him on straightaway, bit miscued it and the ball went miles up in the sky. Rohit positioned himself well but could not hold on to the catch and that left Krunal Pandya upset. But Finch could not make the most of the life as he was out of the very next over and Kuldeep Yadav it was who got rid of Finch for 28 off 23 balls. Krunal Pandya it was who took the catch.
