In the third and final match of the ODI series being played between Australia and India in Canberra, both teams decided to try their bench strength. While India gave opportunity to Shubman Gill, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav and T. Natarajan, Australia included Cameron Green, Sean Abbott and Ashton Agar in the final 11.
While Cameron Green made his debut for Australia, and Sean Abbott got the opportunity to play ODI cricket for Australia after six years. Abbott gave India the first blow in this match by dismissing Shikhar Dhawan. This was his first ODI international wicket in six years.
The 28-year-old fast bowler played against Pakistan on 7 October 2014 in Sharjah. In that match, he had Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi caught by James Faulkner.
Australia have already captured the series by winning both the first matches of the series played in Sydney. Australia won the toss in both matches and decided to bat first and scored 374 and 389 respectively. The Indian team lost by 66 runs in the first match and 51 runs in the second.
Talking about Sean Abbott, the name of this bowler is associated with Phil Hughes. Abbott’s own bouncer was on Phil Hughes’ helmet in which he died. Abbott has said many times that he still remembers that incident.
