The first hit was Mohammed Shami. Left-handed opener David Warner returned in the fourth over of the match. Warner dismissed Shami. Which was easily captured by wicketkeeper Lokesh Rahul. Australia’s first wicket fell by 5 runs.
The second wicket fell by 46 runs. Aaron Finch was run-out with Steve Smith, number three. On the return to the dressing room, Finch was seen to be extremely nervous. After two wickets, Steve Smith and Marnus Labashan pulled the third wicket pair. In the second one-day match in Rajkot, the two also formed a big pair. The Indian bowlers continue to disappoint the pair.
Smith’s half-century came with 63 balls to go with eight fours. And Labushan’s fifty came in 60, with the help of five fours. This is Labuan’s first half-century for the one-day international. Australia were bowled out for two wickets in 31overs at the time of writing this report. Steve Smith scored 173 runs, Marnus Labushan scored 54 runs.
The Indo-Australia three-match ODI series was like a pendulum. Australia beat India in the first one-day international on Tuesday. India had a great turn in the second ODI in Rajkot on Friday. Everyone looks to Chinnaswamy’s third ODI on Sunday to settle the series.
Aussie captain Aaron Finch has decided to bat to win the toss. The only change in the team. Josh Hazlewood has replaced Ken Richardson. Finch’s goal is to increase the pressure on India by first hitting the run and hitting the hill. The Indian team, on the other hand, remains unchanged. Rohit Sharma has a question mark but he is still playing. Another opener Shikhar Dhawan is playing. Although healthy, the first eleven places are not the wicketkeeper.
It was at this Chinnaswamy that Walker Younis was sent off the field by Ajay Jadeja. He was, of course, a long time ago.1996 remember Jadeja’s batting in the quarter-finals of the World Cup. After that, however, a lot of water has been swept through the Ganges. Chinnaswamy is now home to a large kohli. That is where the series will be decided.
Rohit Sharma was thinking about the series finale. It was doubtful whether he would be able to recover from the shoulder injury in Rajkot. Hitman, of course, is playing. He was the best ODI player in the ICC trials last year. His time is not going well at the start of the new year. His bat did not go down in the first two ODIs. In the third ODI, everyone’s eyes are on Rohit’s bat. After winning Rajkot, the Indian team is split. Kohli will fly to New Zealand at the end of this series. Tough tests there again.
