Though the Australian opener is in his supreme batting form in T20 contests but he was not able to save his side. His individual contributions were great but the team was not able to restrict the Indian side. Virat Kohli showed special class to win the battles, he scored three consecutive 50 plus scores in the three T20 matches.
