James Faulkner at no.8 played an absolute blinder to steal a certain victory from India in the Third ODI at Mohali. MS Dhoni’s great century went in vain as Faulkner took Ishant Sharma to the cleaners – 30 runs in one over to pull off a shock win.

There has never been any doubt about the fact that the Indian team is heavily loaded with explosive batting talent and an equally poor bowling pool. Tuesday’s game only reiterated this facet of Indian cricket.

India pulled off the second highest run chase ever in ODI history when they defeated Australia in the Second ODI at Jaipur. Needing 360 to win, India got to the monumental target with 39 balls to spare losing just the one wicket to level the 7-match series 1-1.

Following their sizzling victory in the one-off T20, the Indians would have been on a high going into the seven-match one-day series. However, it took only one game for them to be brought down to earth.

Australia crushed hosts India by 72 runs in the opening ODI at Pune. Chasing a tall target of 305, India came up with 232 all out with none of its batsmen staying till the end to put up a fight.

On a day when Sachin Tendulkar announced his retirement from Tests and film star Rekha celebrated her 59th birthday, another man made news. Yuvraj Singh was making another comeback to international cricket and, as mentioned in the prelude to the tournament, all eyes would be on the southpaw during this otherwise unnecessary event, as pointed out by Ian Chappell.

Making an international comeback after about 7 months, Yuvraj Singh produced a gem of a knock to carry India to victory in the Only T20I against the Aussies at Rajkot.
