India beat Australia in rain-hit ODI

Live streaming of all matches of the India vs Australia series will be available online. India will be aiming to extend their lead against Australia ahead of the Kolkata ODI

After recovering from a calf injury that had kept him out of the first two games of the series, he produced a high-quality century, accelerating from 36 off 54 balls at the end of 19 overs to 101 off 110 in the 34th. They won the second and third matches at Pallekele by three and six wickets respectively to rack up an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series. "We are so proud of you", Banerjee wrote on her Twitter handle tonight.

Aaron Finch toyed with Indian bowlers to hit his eighth ODI hundred as Australia fight to save the five-match series on Sunday in Indore. Between November 2008 and February 2009, India had a run of as many successive victories.

On the other hand, India are now on an eight-match winning run, and hold an upper hand at Indore, where the men-in-blue have a 100 percent winning record (won all four of their matches so far). This was particularly evident in the final dozen overs when they choked the Aussie run rate and drew some loose shots. If the lower order started to fold quickly, Dhoni would have got run out of partners or been forced to take risk and perish.

But Yadav eventually claimed his wicket with a slog sweep hit straight down Kedar Jadhav's throat at deep mid-wicket. He has struck 204 runs against spinners at a strike rate of 178.94 whereas against the fast bowlers, he has scored 285 runs at a run-a-ball.

Yuzvendra Chahal and Jasprit Bumrah built on Kuldeep's incisions and made things worse for Australia.

It is important to note that Kuldeep Yadav, who turned the ball through the wrist, made history through hat-tricks in the second ODI. The Mumbai batsman was in fine form, smashing the ball four times into the stands and six times to the ropes. The third boundary showed Rahane's innovativeness as he guided a short ball past the gap at point to the third man region.

A pair of quick wickets to Australian pacemen Nathan Coulter-Nile and Pat Cummins provided slight hope but that was extinguished by a brilliant knock of 78 from 72 balls by blossoming all-rounder Hardik Pandya.

What all Team India is doing now is every Indian cricket maniac's dream since a decade.

India have been enjoying a great spell of late, which started from Sri Lanka, where they dominated the island nation like no other.They beat them in all formats, including 5-0 in the ODI series.
