Akshar Patel, who came out to bat at number 8, scored the maximum 29 runs and he was not even out. Australia’s fast bowlers performed well in the match. Left arm fast bowler Mitchell Starc took 5 wickets. Nathan Ellis got 3 wickets. In the 3-match series, the Indian team is leading 1-0. The Kangaroo team has a chance to equalize.
