India vs Australia - Highlights & Stats

India vs Australia - Highlights & Stats

On Tuesday, during the second ODI between India and Australia in Nagpur, a fan invaded the pitch before the start of the second innings to meet Dhoni and shake his hands before hugging him.

Stoinis, demoted to No.6 in a reshuffled order following Shaun Marsh's return, strode to the crease and scored 52 under huge pressure as momentum continued to shift frequently.

All-rounder Shankar was left to bowl the 50th over and he trapped Stoinis lbw with his first delivery and sealed the win by bowling last man Adam Zampa two balls later.

On the other hand, Australia will be keen to shrug off their opening match defeat and take inspiration from their T20I series win over India.

The West Australian reviewed the on-field decision and it only delayed the inevitable.

Finch and Langer will rue their team's inability to deny Kohli, who now averages an outrageous 59.73 in ODIs, a seventh one-day ton against Australia.

Zampa took advantage of the breathing room by coaxing Kedhar Jadhav to loft a catch to cover, and the very next ball the previously impassable MS Dhoni cuffed straight to Usman Khawaja at slip.

"When Marcus is there, you always feel like we're in with a chance".

If the ongoing series against Australia is dubbed as a selection trial for certain players to clinch spots for the forthcoming World Cup in England, the rangy Vijay Shankar must have passed it with a splendid showing with the bat initially. Finch praised Marcus Stoinis (52) for playing a brilliant innings.

Peter Handscomb is run out by Ravindra Jadeja.

Bumrah was pivotal in the low-scoring contest, returning to the attack when Australia were 6-222 and required 29 from 30 balls.

Australia will take some solace from the fact that some 248 of India's 250 runs were scored when Kohli was at the crease, with Cummins insisting there are plenty of positives as the World Cup looms large. Nathan Coulter-Nile was clean bowled for 4 by Bumrah's fantastic Yorker.

"We're taking every single game deep", the paceman said.

"The T20s are a different game but we had two really good wins in close circumstances". "When I walk in to bat, when the situation gets hard, I have no choice but to put my head down and bat through the innings", Kohli added.
