Today is the 2nd One-day International battle between India vs Australia. Both have won the last 2 World Cup, so no can judge them in any prospect. For the 2019 World Cup, either of them is ready.
On Australia’s tour of India, the Aussies set the fire in T-20 series and won both of the matches. Finally, concluding the series with 2-0 win. Second, comes 5 ODIs where they were beaten in the very first match by 6 wickets. However, today they have the chance of leveling the series. They knocked out India in T-20, but it is very big gap between a T-20 game and an ODI. Aussies have to build up their batting strength and skipper Finch has to play big role in it. He is suffering from very low scores in white-ball games. Their bowlers are steady no doubt in that and fielding is the best part. Shaun Marsh is playing the Indian spinners well with the add-on of Khwaja’s 50 runs is very good for Aussies.
India’s skipper is always in good form but the openers have to do their job in an efficient way. As arriving in home, their mid-order had automatically shown their diligence. Moreover, the world-class bowlers like Bumrah, Shami, Kuldeep are marvelous. Like the previous one, a tough competition will be ahead today in the day. Follow the below timings to watch very special Ind vs Aus 2nd ODI.
