Canberra: For the third time in six days, an Indian century has resulted in a loss. Only this time, the unfortunate man was Virat Kohli. His 24th century was a special one, but then it just wasn’t enough to prevent a punchy innings from Glenn Maxwell, whose unbeaten knock of 96 helped Australia gun down their highest target at the MCG and capture the VB series.
India, who has endured their second straight ODI series loss in a little over two months, will have to extend their wait of scoring a win over Australia.
In the end, Australia chased down the 296-run target in 48.5 overs to win by three wickets and complete hat-trick of wins to seal the series 3-0. That resulted in another disappointment for an Indian centurion as Virat Kohli scored 117 to help India put up a competitive total on the board.
