Australians happy to fox Indians with short ball, says Glenn Maxwell

Australia's bowling spearhead, Mitchell Johnson, used the short ball successfully against the Indian middle-order and sent the hosts on the back foot in the third ODI in Mohali with figures of 10-1-46-4. The visitors, who lead the series 2-1, won the Mohali rubber by four wickets riding on James Faulkner's match-winning innings.

Ranchi: All-rounder Glenn Maxwell on Monday said there would be no let-up in Australia's strategy of targeting the Indian batsmen with the short-pitch deliveries when the two teams square off against each other in the fourth one-dayer here on Wednesday.

"I think the short ball has probably been our best strategy so far. I don't think we're going to change our strategy too much. We thought we bowled pretty well (in the last match)," Maxwell told reporters here.

"Unfortunately, Dhoni went off at the end and played brilliantly. I thought we bowled really well last game. It felt like we sorted out a few of their batsmen. Hopefully they've got a few worries in their camp. We're feeling pretty good at the moment," he said.
