Agar was rushed back to the dressing room but came back after 5 overs. He did made multiple rounds back and fro but completed his quota of 10 overs.

Richard Saw, Australia’s team doctor was quoted by Cricbuzz, “Ashton injured his right little finger whilst fielding in the match last night. Following the conclusion of the match he went for x-rays which have confirmed a fracture of the finger. He will return home to Australia and consult a specialist with a possibility of surgery.”

Agar absence means that Adam Zampa in all likelihood will return to the playing XI for Australia. Fourth ODI will take place at Bangalore on Thursday, while the series decider will be played at Nagpur.
