and Bumrah finishes it off with a full ball. Not a yorker, but Tye is late onto it, and lets is squeeze under his bat. The off stump is pegged back
That's bring an end to what we had to offer for tonight. India men and women have both won their T20 series 2-0. Congratulations India. Thanks for joining us
"It was fantastic," says MS Dhoni. "The support was very good. It has always been very good even when we are not playing well. That Jadeja catch was fantastic. That was a crucial part of the game. No wonder commentators keep saying catches win matches. Spinners did a great job, also Hardik's over with that wicket was good. Bumrah has done well at death bowling. He has bowled yorkers. It is your choice if you want to bowl back of a length if the pitch is good, but if you are not bowling yorkers because you can't bowl them, you will go for runs."
Aaron Finch, down with his hamstring injury is not available to chat. "It was a big target," says Shane Watson. "We made a good start but lost our way. Their spinners are very very skilled. Even when it is not turning they are effective. They play a lot of T20 cricket. Aaron Finch has hurt his hamstring, the run-out made it worse. He is getting it assessed. Sunday is very important. At the moment we are testing out a few players, which makes it challenging, but it is also an opportunity for guys to put their hand up."
"I love coming to Australia," says Virat Kohli, the Man of the Match. "There is good pace, there is good bounce, I love the challenge, and we get good Indian crowds as well. Nothing different from back home I am very happy I could contribute at an important time. We sealed the series today. Shikhar took a bit of time getting into the one-day series, but he is showing how dangerous he is. And Rohit, once he gets going, there is no better sight. The way they went after the bowling it can demoralise sides."
Impressive series win for India. Dhoni takes a stump as a souvenir. So does Kohli. This has been a good comeback albeit against a second-string (or is it third-string?) Australian side. They have come back from four straight defeats at the start of this tour to win this T20 series with a match to go. A perfect game for them: a good opening partnership followed by Kohli fireworks, and spinners coming to the party with the game in the balance. Australia, well they need to respect the format if they want to get winning, but they have their preferences, and to each his own. Credit where it is due: Indian spinners have done it despite heavy dew
Last ball before India's series win is official
quick yorker, under his bat and just outside off
nearly a yorker, but also nearly a half-volley. Tye scorches this past long-off for four
Chin: "Sign of a maturing young bowler that Bumrah doesn't actually react when he yorks a tailender. It's because he expects himself to"
slower short ball, beats Tye's swpie
tries the short-ball variation... wide down the leg side
KG: "Let the MoM debate begin! :P "
and the traditional Bumrah yorker. In each of his three matches Bumrah has bowled a batsman with a yorker. This is swift, and aimed at the base of the middle stump. Too good for hastings
"How can it be a stumping if Faulkner inside edged it? Surely that should be a run out?" Andrew Dunford, you get run out only when you are attempting a run
full, yorker, dug out to long-off for a single
Aishvarya: "Even Dhoni's pads are electric !!!"
low full toss, ends a superb over with a sixth single off it
Attendance at MCG: 58,787
full, into the pads, chipped away for a single
Jha: "This so dhoni's game. Stifle with spinners. Stumpings. Freakish fielding from jaddu. Totally the game India needed in the Odis as well but couldn't execute."
looks to ramp but gets just the single to short fine leg
Aabhas: "50/5 in last 8 overs ..."
low full toss, will go for just the single to long-off
Alex Franklin: "Officially the fastest stumping ever :p"
yorker, on off, dug out for a single to extra cover
PIYUSH : "Jadeja saved a life. Umpire's life that is."
full and wide, driven to long-on for one
"MS Dhoni now has the record for most stumpings in international cricket; has gone past Kumar Sangakkara's 139 stumpings." Shiva, what a way to get there. An absolute freak stumping
Nehra comes back
same line wide outside off but this time slower in the air. Wade just toe-ends this back to Ashwin
cleverly bowled by Ashwin. Sees Wade back away and bowls a quick one just inside the tram line. The little Wade can't reach it. Is beaten
down the wicket tp chip this length ball over midwicket for a six. Too late? Too little?
swept to fin e leg for one
carrom ball? No room, defended back to him
makes room to push one into the off side for one
Ashwin looking for an icing
a freak stumping to make up for the one he missed earlier in the evening? Wide round-arm delivery, Faulkner looks for the big slog, inside-edges it into Dhoni's pads, and the ricochet goes on to the stumps. The third umpire is brought in, and the replay from square on shows his back foot has dragged out of the crease. Dhoni's gloves are close to the stumps when the ball hits the wicket, but the third umpire seems convinced it is not the gloves whodunnit. He doesn't ask for another replay. And rightly so
