India’s death bowling was exceptional, says Finch

Australia captain Aaron Finch has heaped praise on India’s death bowling, saying it was one of the reasons why the hosts ended the winning side in the just-concluded three-match ODI series.

In the final ODI played on Sunday, Australia couldn’t capitalize on the strong platform, set up by a third-wicket partnership of 127 between Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne, and ended up with 286/9 — a below-par score at the Chinnaswamy surface which India chased down comfortably with seven wickets in hand.

Australia lost five wickets in the last 10 overs and the regular strikes from the Indian bowlers meant that the last three overs yielded just 13 runs to restrict the visitors below 300.
