India aced a tight chase against Australia to win the third and final T20I at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad by six wickets. The win helped India take the three-match series 2-1. The three-match series started with Australia chasing down India's total of 208 in Mohali. Rohit Sharma & Co. then hit back in the eight-over contest in Nagpur. India's chase on Sunday started on a shaky note with KL Rahul and Rohit getting out for 1 and 17, respectively. Virat Kohli (63 off 48) and eventually player of the match Suryakumar Yadav (69 off 36) then steadied the ship with a century stand. Hardik Pandya, who played a cameo, hit the winning runs off Daniel Sams.

Earlier, Australia, powered by Cameron Green (52 off 21), got off to a flier but Axar Patel (3/33) and Yuzvendra Chahal pulled things back. The visitors were 117/6 in 13.5 overs. Then another hard-hitting batter, Tim David (54 of 27) wrested back the initiative from India. Harshal Patel produced a fine final over to limit the damage. Jasprit Bumrah (0/50) failed to make an impression and ended up conceding his worst figures in T20I. Axar Patel was adjudged player of the series.
