The ODI series between India Vs Australia is tied up by 1-1 after the two matches. The third and final match is scheduled for 22nd March.

He also bats for the bowlers on batting-friendly pitches.

Wasim Akram ahead of ODI decider

“Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul; all these guys are great players. Rahul won the last match for India. It’s not just them who get trapped to the left-armer’s angle, others fall too, especially when the ball comes in. And the pitch on which the match was played, I felt as if I was watching the game in Australia,” 

Wasim Akram further added that

“It was a small match, Australia played well. The series is shaping up nicely at 1-1. But I supposed that the ball was seaming on that wicket. Although Australia scored those runs quickly, I saw a couple of overs from Siraj, the ball was seaming both ways,” Akram added.

“There are days that belong to the bowlers as well; congratulations to Mitchell Starc for bowling so well, snuffing out three wickets at the top and then take two more wickets. There is no doubt that he is a great bowler, one of the best in the world. So it was his day,” 

An amazing stat of Mitchell Starc is that from 2020, he has not been wicketless in the ODI matches he played. It states that he takes at least a wicket in a match.
