When Kohli made a decision to bring the spinners, Moises Henriques and Travis Head had a feast coming up with an unbeaten 109-run stand to see Australia home.
Leg-spinner Adam Zampa kept the pressure up on the Indian middle order, picking up two for 19 in his four overs. "He was fortunate to have got those wickets".
Talking about the form of the pitch, he said, "It was a tough wicket for batting". It was a damp wicket. India 27 for 4, and Behrendorff sets the stage for Australia's eight-wicket win. "We can't really say we could have bowled the way we began", concluded Bhuvneshwar. He made us think. With this win, Australia has snapped their seven-game losing streak in T20Is against India and have scored their first win over Virat Kohli's side in India.
India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar felt that dismissal of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma off Jason Behrendorff's very first over of the innings tilted scales in Australia's favour. It was followed by the wickets of Shikhar Dhawan and Manish Pandey.
Meanwhile, after India lost the 2nd T20I by 8 wickets and allowed Australia to level the series, setting up a decider.

This is how the 27-year-old 'Jason Behrendorff who?' pressed the destruction button, making the overconfident Indian batsmen fumble their footwork.
"We were not good enough with the bat". But we couldn't do it.
Playing only his second worldwide match, the 27-year-old Behrendorff scythed through India's top order after Australia captain David Warner won the toss and chose to bowl. We can't really put a finger on someone and say it was their fault. He bowled the ideal line and length and made good use of the conditions.
Unlike Behrehdorff, who bowled all his four overs at one go, Bhuvneshwar and Jasprit Bumrah bowled just 3 overs apiece at the start of the second innings. Henriques took advantage of a possible slice of luck when on just two - replays suggested he got a feather behind off Bhuvneshwar Kumar but the hosts decided against a review - as he and Head combined for nine fours and fives sixes as the tourists won by eight wickets. It was the flawless kind of wicket for the line and length he bowled. "Rohit's (Sharma) wicket and (Virat) Kohli's wicket were the crucial point for us, in the first over itself", he added.
