Mohali: Ishant Sharma bore the brunt of James Faulkner's conscious decision to go after seamers in the third ODI and the game-changing Australian all-rounder offered his sympathies to the Indian spearhead, saying that every bowler has days when he ends up looking "silly out there".

Faulkner's 29-ball 64 turned the match on its head on Saturday as Australia chased down 304 with three balls and four wickets to spare.

Faulkner particularly targetted Ishant in the 48th over, plundering 30 runs off it which changed the course of the game. Faulkner hit a boundary followed by two huge sixes, then stole a double and to add insult to the injury, once again dispatched Ishant's last two balls for the maximum in that over. (Match stats)
