Yuzvendra Chahal claimed six wickets, his second five-wicket haul in ODIs, as India bundled out Australia for 230 runs in 48.4 overs in the third and final match of the three-match One Day International series in Melbourne. Peter Handscomb top-scored for Australia with 58 runs off 63 balls. Fast bowlers Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar chipped in with two wickets each as India India close-in to claim a maiden bilateral ODI series triumph on Australian soil after their historic Test conquest. The three-match series is currently tied at 1-1 after Australia won the first ODI in Sydney by 34 runs and India won the second in Adelaide by six wickets. India have never won a bilateral ODI series on Australian soil, and their only series wins in the 50-over format came in 1985 (World Championship of Cricket) and 2008 (CB Series). Interestingly, the ongoing three-match affair is only the second bilateral ODI series India have played in Australia, losing 4-1 in 2016. Also, by winning the third ODI in Melbourne, India will finish the current 2018-19 tour without losing a series Down Under.
