India vs Australia 2nd ODI Live: India beats Australia badly by 99 runs

India vs Australia: The groundsmen have shown incredible efficiency, taking just around 6 minutes to cover the entire field. This remarkable effort is reminiscent of their quick actions during a similar situation in Sri Lanka during the Asia Cup, and they’ve once again demonstrated their skill and dedication here. The speed at which they’ve protected the ground is commendable, ensuring that the match can resume swiftly once the rain subsides.

India vs Australia: In a high-scoring encounter at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore, Team India put up an imposing total of 399 runs against Australia in the second ODI. The innings was powered by twin centuries from Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer, with KL Rahul’s crucial fifty, a quick cameo from Ishan Kishan, and Suryakumar Yadav’s blazing performance contributing to India’s formidable score.

Here are the Playing XIs for the match:

India: Shubman Gill, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (w/c), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Prasidh Krishna.

Australia: David Warner, Matthew Short, Steven Smith (c), Marnus Labuschagne, Josh Inglis, Alex Carey (w), Cameron Green, Sean Abbott, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood, Spencer Johnson.

It promises to be an exciting contest as Australia chases a challenging target set by the Indian team.

The team acted swiftly, responding to the situation within 10 minutes to minimize the impact of the rain. Although the rain is persisting, there is optimism that once it stops, the officials will quickly resume the contest.

However, it’s a disappointing turn of events as the rain has disrupted what was shaping up to be an outstanding display of hitting. What initially began as a light drizzle has intensified, forcing the players to leave the field.

India vs Australia 2nd ODI Live: Rain Interrupts IND’s Strong Performance with Gill and Iyer at Bat


On a brighter note, Shubman Gill, who had been observing the Shreyas Iyer show from the other end, joined the action. He hit Sean Abbott for the first six of the game, even though the ball didn’t come perfectly off the bat, the field dimensions allowed it to clear the boundary. Gill followed it up with another boundary, and this partnership with Gaikwad has reached fifty runs in just 29 balls.

India vs Australia Live Score: Shreyas Iyer seems to be enjoying quite a feast, reminiscent of a hearty breakfast with some Kangaroo curry. Sean Abbott is introduced into the attack, and Iyer elegantly dispatches him through the sweeper cover region. This stroke appears to be more fitting for the death overs, but Iyer seems to be in fifth gear from the start. His aggressive stroke-play takes India to 47/1 after 7 overs, while Gill watches the show from the non-striker’s end.

India vs Australia Live Score: Shreyas Iyer is showing no signs of nerves as he blazes a trail from the very beginning. In just five deliveries, he treats us to a delightful flick, a stunning cover drive, and an authoritative loft over the infield. Iyer is determined to make a statement, and he backs it up with a fourth boundary. He has raced to 20 runs from just 11 deliveries. Remarkable!

India vs Australia Live Score: Ruturaj Gaikwad provides a faint edge, and India loses their first wicket. Australia desired an early breakthrough, and they got one. Gaikwad slightly misjudges the length as he attempts to defend and nicks it to Carey. Carey dives to his right and completes a one-handed catch. INDIA is 16/1 in 3.4 overs.

India vs Australia Live Score: Spencer Johnson, guilty of bowling too full in the first over, has adjusted his length and begins with five dot balls. Gill manages to take a single off the last ball, tapping it to third man, bringing India to 15/0 after three overs. This is more characteristic of Australia’s disciplined approach, not giving an inch with the new ball.

India vs Australia Live Score: After a costly first over, Josh Hazlewood regains control with a clinical first over. Only a single run is scored from it. The Australian fast bowler tempts Gill and Gaikwad with a fourth-stump line around the good length area, but both openers choose to let the ball go into the keeper’s gloves.

India vs Australia Live Score: What a start! Ruturaj Gaikwad punishes the first two balls of the match. He clips a juicy half-volley off the legs for boundaries and drives a wide overpitched delivery beautifully through the covers for another boundary. Two boundaries in two balls and five wides to finish the first over. Gaikwad is picking up where he left off in Mohali. India has raced to 13/0 after 1 over.

India vs Australia: We would too, had we gotten an opportunity to bat on such a pitch and at this venue. The last time Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma opened the innings for India in an ODI at Indore, they stitched a 212-run partnership. Gill and Gaikwad themselves put on 142 the other evening, and expect these 2 to carry forward the good work from Mohali. Right! Here we go. Spencer Johnson has the new ball, and he would be steaming in with his late 140s.

India vs Australia Live Score: Spencer Johnson may not be Mitchell Starc, but he’s a left-arm pacer, and Australia may have considered India’s vulnerability against left-arm pacers with the new ball. Spencer Johnson stands tall at 6 feet 4 inches and has replaced captain Pat Cummins in the lineup. He made his Australia debut in a T20I against South Africa last year and took 2 wickets for 22 runs. You can check out his profile.

India vs Australia Live Score: As KL Rahul just mentioned, India still has Mohammed Siraj in the lineup. Prasidh Krishna has replaced Bumrah in the XI, and he last played a game at the Asian Cup against Bangladesh. “We would have bowled first as well considering the size of the ground. It’s a good wicket and a good challenge to put runs on the board. We only have one change from the last game. Jasprit is rested, and Prasidh comes in. It’s good for all our batters to spend some time in the middle.”

India vs Australia Live Score: Alright then! It’s not Pat Cummins but Steve Smith who’s out there for the toss, and he has won it. Just like India in the previous game, Australia opts to BOWL FIRST. Spencer Johnson makes his debut.

“It’s quite warm today. The pitch looks good, and we fancy chasing. If there’s dew, it’ll be helpful for us while chasing. We want to win, but we also want to try out a different combination. We’ve made a few changes.”

India vs Australia Live Score: Mukesh Kumar has been named as Jasprit Bumrah’s replacement. Let’s take a brief look at his India career so far. He made his debut earlier this year in July against West Indies, playing five T20Is and three ODIs. In these limited-overs matches, he took seven wickets before making his Test debut in Port of Spain, where he managed to grab two more wickets before being released. While Mukesh Kumar’s style may differ from Bumrah’s, it remains to be seen if he will be part of today’s playing XI. This decision does open up the opportunity to bring Mohammed Siraj back into the lineup, alongside Mohammed Shami and Shardul Thakur.

India vs Australia Live Score: Breaking news just in! India’s pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah won’t be playing in this second ODI against Australia in Indore. The BCCI has named Mukesh Kumar as Bumrah’s replacement.

India vs Australia Live Score: In just one game, Suryakumar Yadav managed to dispel doubts about his ODI abilities, erasing the memory of his three golden ducks against Australia earlier this year. On Friday, SKY delivered a timely and crucial half-century that led India to victory, earning him accolades and support from an Australian cricket legend who believes in his potential to excel in one-day cricket in the future.

India vs Australia Live Score: Ruturaj Gaikwad played a near-flawless inning in his recent appearance for the Indian team, marking his maiden ODI half-century just two days ago. Today, in his final appearance in this series before heading to join the Asian Games squad in China, the young opener is eager to finish on a high note. Gaikwad’s performance was so impressive that he could match Shubman Gill shot-for-shot, a testament to his promising future. As he steps up to bat on one of India’s most batsman-friendly pitches, Gaikwad aims to exit the series on a high note.

India vs Australia Live Score: Shreyas Iyer’s situation is intriguing for Team India. The management wants him in the lineup, but factors beyond his control have been undermining his prospects. Initially, a back injury opened the door for Ishan Kishan to join the XI, and the wicketkeeper-batsman performed admirably against Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup. Later, upon his return from injury, Iyer missed a golden opportunity to find form due to a run-out in the first ODI. It seems like the universe is conspiring against Shreyas, but today offers him a chance to make a comeback.

India vs Australia Live Score: Ravichandran Ashwin’s dash to the nets for batting practice after India’s win over Australia in Mohali was the standout image from the first ODI. Always up for a challenge, Ashwin’s tactics created a buzz online as people speculated about the reasons behind the veteran spinner’s actions. Is it a case of Ashwin going all out on his own, or was he simply following orders from the team management? Regardless, Ashwin’s dedication to the game is unmatched. A day after making a comeback to the Indian ODI squad, he participated in a practice game organized by the TNCA and now this. Vintage ASH anna!

India vs Australia Live Score: The weather in Mohali was unexpectedly hot and humid, and rain interruptions were not anticipated. However, they did occur, highlighting the recent unpredictable weather patterns. Looking ahead to Sunday’s forecast, a similar scenario seems to be in store. Indore has experienced scattered rainfall, although not of great intensity, over the past 3-4 days, and today may see a continuation of it. There is a prediction of some rainfall around 12 PM and later around 4 PM, but neither is severe enough to entirely disrupt the game. It should be nothing more than just passing showers.

India vs Australia Live Score: As is customary with every Team India match, significant public attention will be focused on their team selection. While the Mohali game proved to be a great success, India, given their wealth of options, are likely to introduce a single change to their Playing XI from the previous match. Mohammed Siraj, currently the world’s top-ranked bowler, was absent from the first ODI due to illness. Why else would you rest a bowler coming off a remarkable six-wicket haul in the Asia Cup final?

However, determining whom he will replace presents a challenge. Sidelining Shami doesn’t make much sense, as he delivered a spectacular five-wicket performance against Australia recently. Therefore, with India fielding all three pacers in Siraj, Shami, and Jasprit Bumrah, Shardul Thakur, who went wicketless and gave away 78 runs, could be the one making way for our Predicted Playing XI.

India vs Australia Live Score: The latest update on Mitchell Starc and Glenn Maxwell is that there is no update – at least nothing positive. After the duo missed the Mohali game, Australia captain Pat Cummins, during the post-match presentation ceremony, in a way confirmed that Starc and Maxwell will not be playing the second ODI either. The left-arm quick is said to be on his way to attaining full fitness after picking up groin and shoulder issues during the Ashes. In fact, Starc was even seen preparing at the PCA Stadium on match eve but was probably pulled out of Australia’s plans with the bigger picture which is the World Cup. Maxwell meanwhile, sustained an ankle injury during his preparations for the T20I series against South Africa. He arrived in India on the same day as the first ODI.

India vs Australia Live Score: As previously mentioned, Indore has been a happy hunting ground for India’s batters, and some of them have relished their time at this venue. At the forefront of this list stands Virender Sehwag, who notched an impressive 220 runs from two innings – notably, 219 of those runs were amassed during a single innings when he achieved his maiden ODI double century against West Indies in 2011. Following closely is Rohit Sharma, with 205 runs from five innings. Even Yuvraj Singh and Gautam Gambhir also make their mark with 181 and 137 runs, respectively. Whereas among the current roster, Hardik Pandya has contributed decently too at Holkar, amassing 132 runs from two innings.

India vs Australia Live Score: It wasn’t too long ago. In fact, in January this year, India belted 385 runs at this very venue against New Zealand with Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma getting centuries. In that game, Jacob Duffy gave away 100 runs, while Daryl Mitchell and Michael Bracewell combined to leak 92 from their 10. In response, New Zealand posted 295 of their own with Devon Conway smashing a century.

So that should provide you the picture!

India vs Australia Live Score: The Mohali game was expected to be a run-fest but Australia, batting first, finished on 276 thanks to a brilliant five-wicket-haul from Mohammed Shami. India were cruising along before stuttering to lose 4 wickets for 41 runs. Hence, it was evident that the PCA Stadium wasn’t exactly as smooth for batting as many expected. The same cannot be said for Holkar though as more than the pitch, it’s the small boundaries that will ensure a lot of fireworks.

India vs Australia: India are up against a very threatening Australia pattern, which is worth revisiting through the last two ODI series contested between India and Australia on Indian soil. Can you recall these instances? On both occasions, India came tantalizingly close to securing a series win, only for Australia to stage remarkable comebacks, ultimately emerging victorious and leaving India wounded.

In 2019, just two months before the World Cup, India took a 2-0 lead with victories in the first two ODIs at Hyderabad and Nagpur. However, Australia displayed incredible resilience, winning the final three games in Ranchi, Mohali, and Delhi to lift the trophy. A similar scenario unfolded earlier this year when India won the series opener in Mumbai before the Australians resurrected themselves in the next two one-dayers in Vizag and Chennai, ultimately winning the three-ODI series.

This series is no different. With India already 1-0 up, the Aussies will be firing on all cylinders to push the series into the decider on Wednesday.

India vs Australia Live Score: Greetings, all! We welcome you to our coverage of the 2nd ODI between India and Australia being played at Indore’s Holkar International Stadium. Amidst the excitement of the Asian Games, where the Indian contingent secured an impressive five medals in China on the opening day, attention now turns to men’s cricket. The series is up for grabs for the Men in Blue. After a commanding five-wicket victory in Mohali, India are ticking nearly every box and appear more ready with each passing game. A triumph here would carry significant weight for India, as they have struggled to defeat Australia in the last two ODI series on home soil, both in 2019 and earlier this year.
