Team India took an unassailable lead of 3-0 in the ODI series after defeating Australia by 5 wickets in the 3rd ODI at Holkar Stadium, Indore on Sunday.
Chasing a target of 294, India began with a century opening partnership between Mumbai teammates Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma, both who perished in the 70’s after seeming set for a three-digit score.
Hardik Pandya was promoted at 4 and he grabbed the opportunity with both hands to score 78 and put India on the verge of a win, despite Virat Kohli‘s rare failure in a chase.
Manish Pandey chipped in with an unbeaten cameo to ensure there was no panic at the end.
Well, after reaching the hotel, the ‘Man of the match’ Hardik Pandya cut a cake as Men in Blue celebrated a series-clinching win against the Aussies.
