Happy, Finchy? 

Aaron Finch says that it is consistently ideal to contribute to a win and his organization with Maxwell allowed them to take the game profound. Adds that when they get wickets in the Powerplay, that implied the Kiwis needed to take the risks. Says that Meredith was great and he had effectively shown what he can do in the BBL and he appeared in this game that he can perform at the international level. Advises that they have come here to win and they will make an honest effort to win the series. 

What turned out badly, Kane? 

Kane Williamson says that it was a disappointing performance but credits Australia for a fantastic performance. Adds that they got force with the bat and they posted an enormous score. Adds that it is significant that they proceed onward and take some learnings from this game. Tells that it was an awesome surface to bat but they lost wickets at regular intervals and that was the case in this game. Goes onto say that they will have to make some adjustments and they would have to look at some things as they are going to play on the same surface. 

Player of the Match - Ashton Agar 

Ashton Agar says that it was ideal to get some wickets and he is fortunate to have a great team around him. Adds that he has adequately played and takes each game as another one. States that when he tossed the ball up, things turned out well for him. Tells that Maxi was incredible and it was acceptable to see Finchy back in form. 

What happened earlier? 

In the wake of winning the toss, Williamson handed the bat to the Aussies. Not the best decision looking at the aftereffect of the game. But everything appears to be easier in hindsight. Captain Finch roared back to form as he scored a very much made 69. Maxwell too was ablaze as he reached 70 off just 31 balls and these two helped Australia reach the 200-run mark. The bowling by the Kiwis was not the best as they were whacked all over the park. Sodhi was decent with his spell. But in the end, this total was too enormous to scale and Australia cruised home. 

All about Ashton Agar! 

Ashton Agar - recollect the name! What an outstanding bowling performance this has been by him and the thirteenth over, which was bowled by him switched things around of the game back to the visitors. He snared 3 wickets in that over and obliterated the center request of the Kiwis and additionally ended up with 6 wickets to his name. Indeed, you read that right! SIX WICKETS! In a T20I game, that is remarkable. Debutant Riley Meredith was generally excellent too as he ended with figures with 4-0-24-2. Zampa and Richardson were in the wickets segment. Overall, it was a splendid display by the Australians. 

Center request floundered! 

The Black Caps started off nicely, despite the fact that they lost 2 wickets inside the Powerplay, which included Williamson's wicket too. But Guptill was motoring along nicely and he had Conway for organization. They were adding runs rapidly but Martin lost his wicket rapidly after that. Phillips and Conway attempted to resuscitate their run chase but once, Phillips fell, their run chase went pear-formed. They were rattled by Agar, who went through their center request and none of the remaining batters were ready to make much out of the game after that. 

Top performance! 

A very merited victory for the Aussies as they win the third T20I by 64 runs. It was additionally a game that they needed to win to remain alive as they were down 2-0 in the 5-game series but an all-round performance from the Kangaroos has seen them keep the series alive.
