The third and deciding match of the bilateral T20 series between India and Australia is being played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. India captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to field first. The Australian team, who came out to bat, made a quick start and added 66 runs in the first power play. At the same time, an interesting incident happened in this match when Maxwell was out. While India’s wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik was lucky, Axar Patel also made up for the missing catch with his rocket throw. Further news in detail.
It is worth noting that in Hardik Pandya’s over, Axar Patel made a big mistake when Maxwell missed a simple catch from Axar Patel in the point area. At the same time, Maxwell could not take advantage of this lifeline for a long time or in the very next over, Axar Patel, compensating for his mistake, completed Maxwell’s work with his rocket throw. Did Dinesh Karthik get the support of luck?
Akshar Patel’s rocket throw did all the work
On the fourth ball of the eighth over, Maxwell hit a short in the direction of the leg side. Where Akshar Patel, standing agile and ready, threw the rocket, but before the ball could hit the stump, Dinesh Karthik hit one hand on the stump and one of the bails fell down, fortunately, the second bail remained in its place and the ball took the wicket. As soon as he hit the bail, he came out of the wicket, after which the third umpire declared out.
