Thunder Downunder Episode 6 | India vs Australia 3rd T20I | Hardik & Nattu seal the series for India

India has sealed the T20 series and have they done it in style! What a brilliant collective performance in order to chase a massive target that was set by the Aussies. India played a brilliant chase, and it was a collective effort that took them to victory.

Notable performances include the new find for India – Natarajan who bowled a terrific spell where he gave only 20 runs and picked up a couple of wickets in his spell while the rest of the bowlers went above 10 Rus per over. Overall Nattu has performed exceptionally well in all the games he has played, and India would be hoping that he continues to perform in the days to come as he might have to spear head the Indian attack for the t20 world cup.

Other than Natarajan no one else seemed like taking a wicket in the bowling department for India. The Australian batsman unleashed as soon as their innings started and the stand in captain Wade took the bull by its horns and sent the ball to all parts of the ground. His knock was crucial in setting the tone for the match and the momentum his knock provided the license to go after the Indian attach by the rest of the Australian batsman. Australia would have crossed over 220 if not for the brilliant spell by Natarajan who kept changing his pace in order to keep the batsman at bay.

The Indian innings started exactly the way the visitors needed to start with both KL Rahul and Shikar Dhawan both looking timing the ball extremely well. Shikar also got going after a couple of missed out games and once his eye was in started letting loose against the aussies attack. Good supporting knocks by the skipper virat Kohli and kept India within reach of the target but the real game changer was none other than Hardik Pandya. The knock that hardik played showed that it is time to accept that he is the finisher that India is looking for at No.6 spot in T20s. He hammered a match winning 42 and bought the series home to the boys in blue. Hardik has been exceptional this Australian summer and this match winning knock is showing that his maturity in taking the game deep is also a dangerous problem for the opposition.

Overall, India have made it 2/2 in the t20 series can they now get a whitewash over the aussies on Australian soil. Join us live at 7PM on Thunder downunder only at cheeky Cheeka.
