IND vs AUS: Australia will lock horns against India in the 2nd ODI of the Australia tour of India, 2023 on Sunday, March 19, 2023, at Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam.
India registered a convincing five-wicket victory over Australia in the first ODI to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
The Indian fast-bowling duo of Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami were the standout performers, taking three wickets apiece to restrict Australia to a modest total of 188 runs.
Mitchell Marsh played a valiant knock of 81 off 65 deliveries, opening the innings for the visitors in the absence of David Warner.
India’s chase got off to a rocky start as they lost four early wickets and struggled to find their footing.
However, KL Rahul stepped up under pressure and played a magnificent knock of 75* off 91 deliveries to steer India to a match-winning total.
Ravindra Jadeja also played a crucial role, scoring an unbeaten 45* off 69 deliveries to help India reach the target in just 39.5 overs.
Heading into the second ODI, while India will look to extend their unbeaten run in ODIs this year and take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series, Australia will look to bounce back stronger in this match and level the series at 1-1.
