It was seen that India dropped not one but as many as three catches in this match. After the dismissal of Australia opener Aaron Finch, Cameron Green and Steven Smith saved the team’s innings. But a major part of this was the catches dropped by the Indian players. Because the catches of both of them were released by the Indian players this time and gave them life. Eighth over this time Hardik Pandya was bowling. Green could have been dismissed on the third ball of Hardik’s eighth over. Because Green was caught on the third ball and this catch was dropped by Akshar Patel. So Green got life on 42 runs this time.
Akshar Patel’s subsequent ninth over saw Steven Smith get a life. On the fifth ball of this ninth over, Lokesh Rahul released Smith’s catch and gave him life. At that time Smith was on 19 runs. Smith then batted powerfully and increased the run rate. Then this happened in the 18th over. This over was bowled by India’s fast bowler Harshal Patel. On the second ball of this over, Harshal made a mistake on his bowling. Harshal bowled this second ball well, Wade couldn’t tackle it effectively. So while hitting this ball, he tripped and missed his catch. This catch came straight to Harshal. It seemed that Harshal would now take this catch and Wade would be out. But the catch eluded Harshal and Wade got a life. This time Wade was on 23 runs. After that, Wade scored an unbeaten 45 runs and won the match for Australia.
