AUS VS IND: Kohli finally brings Hardik Pandya to bowl, brings relief to the side

Steve Smith is in a phenomenal form as he makes another ton in this series against India in same no. of deliveries as he did in the previous game. He achieved this ton in 62 deliveries. He hit 13 fours and a couple of maximums to reach triple figures.

He has  out played every Indian bowler in this innings and made it a nightmare for them to bowl at him. He smashed Jasprit Bumrah for three boundaries in a single over. Chahal was also not spared from Smith as he thrashed Chahal to all parts of the ground.  Jadeja was not creating any opportunity as Smith just played for singles and looked for bad deliveries and smacked them to the boundary line.

As a result of this, Kohli had to bring in Mayank Aggarwal and Pandya to bowl. This change worked as Pandya got Smith as soon as he scored century. He got out while playing a ball outside off stump and gave catch to the fielder at third man. He ended his fabulous innings at score of 104 of just 64 deliveries.

Smith scored his 11th century in ODI’s and 5th century against India and 2nd consecutive vs India . Smith averages 65 against India. Hardik Pandya finally finds relief for the side and sends Smith to the dressing room.
