SYDNEY: Hardik Pandya smashed two huge sixes in the final over to give India a dramatic six-wicket Twenty20 victory over Australia on Sunday, sewing up the three-match series for the tourists with a game to spare.

Chasing 195 for victory, India needed 14 runs from the last over and Pandya delivered with two runs off the first ball and sixes off the second and fourth deliveries, the latter flying deep into the stands at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Australia’s bowling attack, making do without Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins, had kept the contest tight. But debutant Daniel Sams was unable to contain Pandya, who finished with 42 runs off 22 balls and was named Man of the Match.

“It’s fantastic,” said Pandya. “I just wanted to finish it early, I don’t like it when it goes down to the wire.”

The victory brought delight to a crowd mostly supporting the tourists and, after Friday’s 11-run victory in Canberra, secured the series ahead of Tuesday’s third and final match in Sydney.
