Australia’s winning streak of 26 ODI matches was finally put to an end on Sunday by India when the latter won the third ODI that was played at Harrup Park in Mackay by two wickets.
Chasing 265, India achieved the target in the very last over of the match to draw the curtains on the prolific record held by Australia. Meg Lanning-led team won their first of the 26 straight ODI matches against India in India in 2018. Just like the team that started Australia’s winning streak, the same team came together to put an end to this much-talked-about streak in 2021.
