India A 247/9 & 189/9 (61 ov)
Australia A 306/9 & 52/1 (15 ov)
Match Drawn
A good tour game comes to an end. India A won the toss and opted to bat first. India A's first inning was off to a poor start as Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal were out on duck. Then the two old warhorses in Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane stabled the Indian inning. While Pujara made a solid fifty, Rahane went on to make a hundred. The form of Pujara and Rahane would please Virat Kohli. India A finished their first inning on 247/9. James Pattinson picked three wickets and he was ably supported by Michael Neser and Mark Steketee. 

In response to India A's 247 Australia A made 306/9 thanks to a fine century from the bat of Cameron Green. Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Siraj picked three wickets each. 

Trailing by 59 runs, India A top-order started poorly in the second inning too as they were reduced to 128/6. At that point it looked like Australia A would run away with the match. But then Wriddhiman Saha and Kartik Tyagi came together with to stitch a partnership. That partnership spilled waters on Aussie plans. Mark Steketee was the stand out bowler for Australia A in the Indian second inning as he picked five Indian wickets. It looked like Ajinkya Rahane would settle for a draw but then with 17 overs to go in the day's play he declared the Indian inning to let his bowlers have a go at the Aussie batsmen. 

There was good resistance from Marcus Harris and Will Pucovski and it looked like they would bat out the remaining overs. But a nasty bouncer from Kartik Tyagi hit Pucovski on the head and with only a few overs to go before Stumps he had to walk back. There would be some concern regarding his injury in the Aussie camp. 

All in all a good competitive game comes to a close. This is Prakhar Sachdeo along with my fellow commentator Vasisht taking your leave. But do stay logged on to Sports Keeda as we will bring to you all the thrills and spills from the third T20I between India and Australia happening at SCG. 

And seven runs from the Day's last over. That is Stumps on Day 3! The match has ended in a Draw. 
Over: 15 | Summary: 1nb 1 0 4 0 1 0 Bowler: Kartik Tyagi Score: 52/1
14.6 Kartik Tyagi to Travis Head, short of a length outside off, Head comfortably defends that one off the back foot. No last-ball drama, unfortunately. 
14.5 Kartik Tyagi to Marcus Harris, Full-ish down the leg-side. Harris has no problem letting his skipper take the last ball of the match. 
14.4 Kartik Tyagi to Marcus Harris, JAFFA! Pitches on middle-off on short-ish length and it takes off! Harris does well not to prod at it. 
14.3 Kartik Tyagi to Marcus Harris, FOUR! poor delivery, way down the leg side, all Harris needs to do is get some bat on it and he does exactly that. 
14.2 Kartik Tyagi to Marcus Harris, short of a length angling towards off-stump, Harris comfortably taps that one down. 
14.1 Kartik Tyagi to Travis Head, short of a length outside off, punched to deep point for a single. 
14.1 Kartik Tyagi to Travis Head, short of length, didn't seem to bounce as much , takes the outer edge back to Tyagi, who dives forward to take the catch. No-ball, anyway. 
Tyagi to bowl. This could be the last over of the day. 
Just two runs from the over. Only a couple of overs to go before the Stumps are called.

13.5 Kuldeep Yadav to Marcus Harris, just about good length, tucked towards the on side for nothing.

Yadav to bowl. 
Just one run from the over but the news is that Pucovski has sustained an injury on his head. So that should concern the Australian camp. Will he be able to play the second tour game? The hit on his helmet looked nasty. We should have an update on him by tomorrow.
