The Indian team has dominated the Australia team in ODI cricket at home for the last 4 years. However, Australia defeated India by 21 runs in the third match of the recently concluded 3-match ODI series. Also, took the series 2-1. Australia thus pocketed their eighth ODI series against India overall and sixth in India.
Earlier in 2019, the Indian team had lost against Australia in the home ODI series. This victory may have eased the pain of the visiting team’s 2-1 loss in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. There were also some controversial moments in the third ODI. Let us know about the same…

Earlier, two Indian players clashed during Australia’s innings as well. In fact, Kuldeep Yadav bowled the 39th over of the first innings of the third ODI. The Indian team appealed against Ashton Agar. However, the umpires gave him not out. After this, Kuldeep asked captain Rohit Sharma to take DRS. This time Rohit took DRS with a smile. However, after that suddenly Rohit’s expression changed and he angrily started saying something to Kuldeep. However, it is not clear what Rohit was talking to Kuldeep about.
Talking about the match, Australia scored 269 runs losing all wickets in 49 overs while batting first. Chasing this challenge, the Indian team could score only 248 runs for the loss of 10 wickets in 49.1 overs. Hence, after winning 26 home series in all three cricket formats, the Indian team suffered its first defeat. Mitchell Marsh, who scored 194 runs in this series, was honored with the Man of the Series award. Also, Adam Zampa, who took 4 wickets for 45 runs in the third match, was awarded the man of the match.
