IND vs AUS 3rd ODI: The first half of the series decider third ODI between India and Australia has been a treat for fans to watch. Both the teams have had their moments in the innings. Opting to bat first, the visitors had a sensational start as Mitchell Marsh and Travis Head took the Indian bowlers to the cleaners and smashed them all over the park. 

The hard-hitting Australian duo stitched 68 runs for the opening partnership. After the opening partnership, they tumbled a bit as they lost wickets in quick successions as Indian vice-captain Hardik Pandya chipped in three quick wickets and reduced Australia from 68/0 to 85/3. 

The duo of David Warner, Marnus Labuschagne and Alex Carey tried to build a partnership but the brilliance of Kuldeep Yadav was too much for them to handle. The leg-spinner bowled staggeringly well to curtail the run flow and shift the momentum towards their side.
