CHENNAI, INDIA (AP) – Leg spinner Adam Zampa picked 4-45 as Australia beat India by 21 runs in the series-deciding one-day international on Wednesday to claim the number one spot in the ICC’s ODI rankings.
Mitchell Marsh’s 47 runs and Alex Carey’s 38 runs had carried Australia to a par score of 269 runs (49 overs). In reply, India was bowled out for 248 runs (49.1 overs) with Virat Kohli’s half-century going in vain.
The visitors won the series 2-1 after dropping the first match. Marsh was named player of the series for scoring 194 runs in three innings.
