Krunal Pandya sets T20Is record for a spinner in Australia


Sydney: All-rounder Krunal Pandya while featuring for only his sixth Twenty20 International (T20I) for India recorded the best bowling figure by a spinner in Australia. The 27-year-old Krunal Pandya ran through the Australian top and middle order to record figures of 4/36 during the third and final T20I in Sydney. It was also his personal best figures in the T20Is. Krunal was also the pick of the bowlers for India with the hosts managing to post 164/6 on board after opting to bat.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) also took note of the feat and appreciated Krunal for his effort.
Krunal, who made his debut in the shortest format of the game against the Windies earlier this month, now has six wickets to his name.
The home team lead the three-match series 1-0 after winning a nail-biting and rain-affected first match in Brisbane by four runs, with the second in Melbourne abandoned due to persistent showers.
It means the best India can do now is share the T20 spoils ahead of their four Test series starting in Adelaide next month.
