Australia conceded five penalty runs in the 94th over when an off-spinner by Travis Head kept low and it nutmegged wicketkeeper Alex Carey to hit the extra helmet lying behind him. The glovesman could only afford a wry smile.
Having scored 195 off 368 balls in the first innings to enable Australia to a big total, Usman Khawaja was adjudged the Player of the Match. And with 213 runs in three matches at an average of 53.25, David Warner bagged the Player of the Series.
You don’t see that too often!
