Sydney: After losing the third and final T20 game to Australia, India captain Virat Kohli said if there had been a new 25-30 innings partnership Hardik Pandya could have cut the game. Despite captain Virat Kohli’s superb half-century 85-point innings, India lost by 12 points to Australia in the third T20 game played at Sydney Cricket Ground. Despite the loss, India won the three-game series 2-1.
Kohli (Virat Kohli) said after the match: “ Once when Hardik started playing we thought we could win him. Our stick was not right in the middle of the overs. If there had been another 30-race partnership it would have been a bit easier for Hardik. We were on the way home. But it’s good for us to end the 2020 season with a series victory.

He said, “I think the audience was a reason and that still inspires you. Being an audience sometimes we get the energy from Australian players.
India must now play a four-game test series with Australia starting December 17. The last time India visited Australia, they won the first test 2-1 on Kangaroo soil. Kohli will return home after the first test due to the birth of his first child and the Indian team will play the remaining three matches without him.
