Australia have set the odds right as they settled the score with India following their 2-1 defeat in the Border Gavaskar Series as the visitors defeated India 2-1 in the three-match ODI series to clinch the series. After losing the first game to India, Australia under the leadership of Steve Smith bounced back strong defeating India by 10 wickets in the 2nd ODI to level the series followed by their 21 runs win in the 3rd fixture to bag the series.

Australia were exceptional with the ball throughout the series as their bowlers troubled the Indian batters in the three matches. Mitchell Starc was the standout performer from the first two games as the bowler picked up a total of 8 wickets in the series. Adam Zampa was the star of the show for the Steve Smith-led side as he picked up 4 wickets during India’s chase making sure the Men in Blue crumpled before the target.

“It’s been an enjoyable tour. We didn’t play our best cricket, good enough to get over the line. This wicket was entirely different, we left a few out there with the bat. The spinners bowled beautifully, really good performance. (Turning point) It was a real grind in the field. The way the tail stuck and got us to 269, got us to a nice total.”

With the ODI series coming to a conclusion, players will now turn their eyes towards the approaching Indian Premier League that kickstarts on the 31st of March with the defending champions Gujarat Titans locking horns against the four-time winners Chennai Super Kings at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
