Australia were looking forward to this series, as it is a good chance for them to win on Indian soil just ahead of the World Cup coming up. They faced a loss in the first ODI, but it was a good performance from them, and they put up a good total on the board. David Warner and Steven Smith put up a good partnership early on in the innings. Their middle order also batted well, but none of the batters managed to take the innings deep and could only put up small partnerships. The bowlers could not strike early on but dominated the middle phases, which was not enough in the end. They will now want to win this one and level the series.
Hello and a very warm welcome, folks. We arrive at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore for the 2nd ODI between India and Australia. The weather looks great, and we hope to see an exciting game of cricket being played.
