The Australia is currently leading the 5 match series by 3-1 and credit must go to the ODI specialist, who implemented themselves really well in the Subcontinent conditions. George Bailey has been the backbone of the Australian middle order in this series. He has scored over 250 runs with his sweep shots and in the last match, he scored another superb knock of 90 not out.
Apart from Bailey, the likes of Aaron Finch, Matthew Wade and young Travis Head has scored runs for the Australian team. The bowling of Australian has been led by the left-arm seamer Mitchell Starc and he gave the Australia an extra edge, that helped them to win the match easily.
But, the hero in the last match was big Australian John Hasting who claimed his career best figure of 6 wickets. Apart from these two, Boland bowled beautifully in the last match and Adam Zampa has been the lone spinner for David Warner’s team.
