India (IND) will be up against Australia (AUS) in the 2nd ODI match of the Australia Tour of India at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore on September 24. This is going to be the second of the three-match ODI series in India and is being seen as good preparation for both these teams ahead of the World Cup. India leads the series 1-0 so far, but Australia would be looking forward to making a comeback in the coming game.
These teams had squared off against each other at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali, where India won the toss and elected to bowl. Australia lost their first wicket in the very first over of the game but had a fantastic second-wicket partnership of 94 runs to make a brilliant comeback. Several batters from their top order, as well as the middle order, got starts, but none of them were able to convert those into bigger totals. David Warner was the lone half-centurion from the team as Mohammad Shami ran through their batting order, limiting them to just 276.
India, in reply, started in a fantastic manner and looked like they were batting on a different track altogether. Both the opener looked to be in great touch as they notched up their fifties respectively and amassed a centurion partnership worth 142 runs. India lost a few wickets in quick succession, and it might have been worrisome, but KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav steadied the ship, scoring their fifties each as well. India won the match comfortably by five wickets.
