Live Score And Updates, India vs Australia 2nd ODI at Adelaide Oval

09.32 IST: FOUR! AUS 35/2 in 9.3 overs vs India

09.25 IST:

09.23 IST: OUT! Mohammed Shami removes Alex Carey for 18. GONE! Now Shami strikes and both the Australian openers are back in the pavilion. This is very good, banged in short and it’s sharp. Takes Carey by surprise who is hurried into the pull. The ball goes off the top edge and balloons towards mid-wicket. Dhawan settles under it and takes a comfortable catch. Fantastic stuff here from the visitors, good start for them in this encounter. Australia 26/2 in 7.4 overs vs India

09.22 IST: FOUR! Shot. Look at the timing on that. So sweet from Alex Carey. It’s quite full and hurled outside off, the opener just leans into it and caresses the drive through the covers for a boundary.

09.18 IST: OUT! Bhuvneshwar Kumar removes Aaron Finch for 6. Bowled ’em! Finch has been undone again and that is another failure for him. This one is hurled just outside off on a good length and moves into the right-handed batsman after landing. Finch who was defending and playing down the ground till now, looks to go over the top of mid off with a lofted shot but the ball takes the inside edge and goes on to knock the middle stump. If you remember the previous game too, he was bowled by Kumar with a similar ball coming in. Not a good shot from the skipper, especially when you are out of form. India strike early! Australia 20/1 in 7 overs vs India

09.11 IST: Drops just short of Kumar on his followthrough. Looks like that one held a little on the pitch. Landed on off stump and Finch was ahead to push it back down the ground. It hits high on the bat and goes slightly in the air towards Bhuvneshwar but lands in front of him. Lucky for the skipper! Australia 14/0 in 5 overs vs India

09.06 IST: Defended towards point by the skipper to end the over. Two off it, a good one for India considering it is the Powerplay. AUS 11/0 in 4 overs vs IND

08.58 IST: FOUR! First four of the day and what a flick it was to get it too. A nothing ball on the pads, easy pickings for Carey who just holds his balance and flicks it through square leg for a boundary. Australia 8/0 in 2 overs vs India

08.54 IST: Streaky from Carey! On the off stump line, Carey comes ahead to defend but the ball goes off the inside edge towards square leg for a single. Keeps strike for the next over, 3 from the over. AUS 3/0 in 1 over vs IND

08.51 IST:

08.48 IST: Players of both the team and umpires are out in the middle. Aaron Finch and Alex Carey are the two opening batsmen for the hosts, Bhuvneshwar Kumar with the first new ball for India. Let’s play!

08.40 IST: Pitch Report- Brendon Julian with the pitch report feels the surface has a grass covering around 6 mm which has been cut short from the pitch used for the Test match. He also feels there will be good carry for the pacers. Adds that it has been low scoring in the past with an average of 240-250 batting first. Continues saying there are decent boundary sizes today with a smallest of 57 m. Reckons that the captain winning the toss will bat first and should look to score about 270-280.

08.35 IST:

08.30 IST: Virat Kohli says, “We would have batted first as well, looks a great wicket to play on. The conditions are going to be a big factor for us as it’s hot and humid. We were a bit scratchy at Sydney, just to get the one side together. We can’t take Australia lightly in Australia. We like to be in these situations where we get to bounce back as a team. Mohammad Siraj makes his debut today, Khaleel Ahmed makes way for him”.

08.27 IST: Aaron Finch: We are gonna bat first mate. Looks like a good wicket to bat, don’t think it’ll change much throughout. We played a really good game the other day. I think it’s a good chance to put some pressure on with a good score. It’s always good to play against a world class outfit and improve as a team leading into the next phase of the year.

08.25 IST: India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (C), Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami

Australia (Playing XI): Aaron Finch (C), Alex Carey (wk), Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Nathan Lyon, Peter Siddle, Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff

08.20 IST: TOSS – Australia win toss, opt to bat against India in Adelaide. The hosts have decided to go in with the unchanged XI from the last match. While for India, pacer Mohammed Siraj makes ODI debut, he replaces Khaleel Ahmed.

07.51 IST: Hello and Welcome to our live cricket coverage of the second ODI between Australia and India from the beautiful Adelaide Oval, Adelaide.

Brief Preview: Former India captain MS Dhoni’s inability to rotate the strike in the middle overs will remain a major cause of concern when India take on Australia in a do-or-die second ODI on Tuesday in their bid to keep the three-match series alive. Hardik Pandya’s sudden suspension on disciplinary grounds has badly affected the balance of India’s batting order, which was apparent during visitor’s 34-run defeat in the opening match despite vice-captain Rohit Sharma’s 22nd hundred in the 50-over format.

Dhoni’s 51 off 96 balls and failing to rotate the strike has brought to focus the rejigging that skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri will have to fret upon. With Dhoni being slotted at No 5 even though vice-captain Rohit wants the veteran to bat a notch higher but cues from India’s training session made it clear that the team is unlikely to tinker with the batting order. India’s batting order did come under the spotlight at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The top three (Rohit, Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli) have enjoyed a fairly consistent run since 2016. But it was a rare occasion when Dhoni had to come out in the fourth over of the innings. (AUS vs INDRead Full Preview 2nd ODI)
