India managed an unassailable lead of 1-0 after winning the first ODI by five wickets in absence of regular skipper Rohit Sharma. Led by stand-in captain Hardik Pandya, Indian bowlers created havoc by bundling the whole Australian side on 188 runs. The pace duo of Muhammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami scalped three wickets each, whereas, Ravindra Jadeja took two. Except for Mitchell Marsh who smashed a quick-fire 81 off 65 balls, no other Aussie batter could carry on the innings for long.
However, Steve Smith would be pleased by how his bowlers managed to keep things tight while defending the under-par total. Mitchell Starc got rid of Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav through his genius in-swingers early on. The star pacer also removed Shubman Gill who was looking absolutely dangerous. With quick wickets at the top, it was KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja in the middle who steadied the ship after smashing unbeaten 75 and 45 respectively to bring about a hard-fought win at the end. With Rohit Sharma’s return in the second ODI, the team is expected to make a rather stable start at the top. Meanwhile, Steve Smith and Co. will contemplate the mistakes they made in batting and refrain from repeating the same in the next outing.
