Watch: Ravi Bishnoi clean bowls Travis Head after being hit for a six
Ravi Bishnoi dismissed the dangerous looking Aussie opener Travis Head.
The fifth T20I clash between India and Australia at Bengaluru, is halfway over. India, having won three out of four matches in the series, looked to seal their dominance in the final encounter. India set a target of 161 runs, it was Travis Head who was responsible to put Indian bowlers on their toes.
After losing the toss and scoring a total of 160/8, the pressure was on Indian bowlers to defend the total. Australia, chasing 161 runs, found themselves at 55/2 after 6.5 overs, with Travis Head at the crease and the required run rate hovering around 8.05.
Ravi Bishnoi shows his brilliance
The crucial moment arrived when Ravi Bishnoi, who had been hit for a six by Travis Head in the previous bowl, delivered a masterful response. On the fourth ball of his over, Head smashed a six, but Bishnoi didn’t let the pressure get to him.
With the very next delivery, he bowled a quicker googly that landed perfectly on length. Head, attempting to defend on the back foot, was caught off guard by the delivery. The ball zipped past his bat, crashing into the top of off-stump, and the dangerous opener was sent back to the pavilion after 28 runs off 18 balls.
