Indian replacement spinner sets Australian ODI record


//

Yuzvendra Chahal has turned in the best figures for any bowler in a One Day International in Australia as India took the upper hand in the deciding third ODI at the MCG.

The leg-spinner finished with career-best figures of 6/42 off his 10 overs as he tied the record set by former Indian paceman Ajit Agarkar.

Chahal's performance was all the more impressive given that Australia is notorious for being tough for travelling spinners, with no spinner before him managing to grab six wickets in an ODI in Australia.

The 28-year-old's stunning performance limited Australia to just 230 as multiple batsmen failed to convert on starts throughout the innings.

Australia's innings began with captain Aaron Finch desperately trying to regain his form, before being the second of the opening pair dismissed inside the first 10 overs.

Usman Khawaja (34) and Shaun Marsh (39) embarked on an attempt to resuscitate Australia's innings, but when the pair fell within the span of three deliveries in the 24th over, it left the home side reeling.

Peter Handscomb continued his good form, top scoring for Australia with a brisk 63-ball 58, to go along with his innings of 73 in the first ODI.

For the tourists, Chahal was helped by the opening pair of Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2/28 off eight overs) and Mohammed Shami (2/47 off 9.4 overs).

India will resume the second innings requiring 231 to take out the series.
