IND vs AUS Highlights: Spinners Shine as India take Series in Rain-Curtailed Game
Team India won the match by 99 runs and take the three match series by 2-0 with one game left.
IND vs AUS Highlights: Indian spinners helped India completed a dominating performance against Australia on Sunday in Indore. With the new ball, pacer Prasidh Krishna gave two early blows to Australia as opener Matthew Short and skipper Steve Smith departed in quick succession. Earlier in the match, Shreyas Iyer, Shubman Gill’s centuries and KL Rahul and Suryakumar fifties powered India to a mammoth 399 in IND vs AUS 2nd ODI. Shreyas Iyer (105) and Shubman Gill (104) scored brilliant tons, while KL Rahul (52) and Suryakumar Yadav (72*) went berserk at death to put India in a commanding position. For Australia, Cameron Green was the pick of the bowlers with 2 wickets. Earlier, Australia stand-in skipper Steve Smith won the toss and opted to bowl first.
The strong showings by Suryakumar Yadav and Mohammed Shami in the first match would have significantly boosted their confidence. KL Rahul also appeared to be in fine form, scoring a century in the Asia Cup and a half-century in the last ODI in Mohali. It’s worth noting that India has an impressive track record in Indore, having won all six of their ODIs played there. In September 2017, India secured a five-wicket victory against Australia when the two teams faced off at the Holkar Stadium.
Regarding the Australian side, there is no official update on the return of Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Starc. Pat Cummins and company may opt not to risk these two players, considering the upcoming World Cup. Meanwhile, the visiting team aims to see their batsmen capitalize on their promising starts. In the first ODI, which they lost by five wickets, several Australian batsmen reached scores in the 20s, 30s, and 40s, but none managed to convert their innings into substantial contributions.
