Australia (389/4)

David Warner (83/77): Ravindra Jadeja to Steven Smith, OUT! RUN OUT! Warner is short by some margin and he knows it as he walks off before the decision is made. Excellent piece of fielding from Shreyas Iyer. Not easy to hit the stumps direct from the deep but he has done it and has found Warner short. Loopy ball on off, Smith chips it over the bowler’s head towards long off and takes off for the run. Warner wants the second and calls Smith for the second. Iyer comes across, collects and has a shy at the bowler’s end and hits. Warner puts in a dive but has that saved him? Warner does not think so as he is already walking back. The third umpire is called for and the replays show that Warner is well short. End of a very good innings from Warner but he will feel disappointed. There was no two there but in taking a chance, he perishes.

Aaron Finch (60/69): Mohammed Shami to Aaron Finch, OUT! CAUGHT! Good bowling change from Kohli! Brings his strike bowler back on and Shami strikes. Finally, they get the breakthrough. Finch goes after playing another fine knock but will be a little disappointed that he could not continue. Good length ball on middle, Finch looks to flick but closes the face of the bat a little too early. It takes the leading edge and goes towards cover. Kohli runs back a little and takes a simple catch. Very important wicket for India as these two were taking the game away from them.

Steven Smith (104/64): Hardik Pandya to Steven Smith, OUT! CAUGHT! Finally, India get the better of Smith! But, take a bow, Steven Smith! What an innings. He has played an absolute blinder of an innings. Scoring back-to-back centuries is not easy but Smith has made it look easy. Good length ball outside off, Smith reaches for it and then looks to cut but it takes the outside edge and goes to short third man where Shami takes the catch.

Marnus Labuschagne (70/61): Jasprit Bumrah to Marnus Labuschagne, OUT! CAUGHT! Goes straight into the hands of mid off. Labuschagne was aiming to go over mid off but fails to get the elevation. Bumrah gets his first wicket of the game but he has been expensive. End of a good innings from Labuschagne. Full and on off, Labuschagne looks to lift it over mid off but does not get the elevation. Mayank Agarwal takes the catch comfortably.

Glenn Maxwell* (63/29) and Moises Henriques* (2/1): Navdeep Saini to Glenn Maxwell, A single to end the innings! Full ball on middle, Maxwell looks to heave it away but it takes the inside edge and goes to deep square leg. A single taken. AUSTRALIA END ON 389 FOR 4.

India (338/9)

Mayank Agarwal (28/26): Pat Cummins to Mayank Agarwal, OUT! CAUGHT! Agarwal departs! He got off to a start but has failed to continue on again. This was a poor shot! No feet movement whatsoever and he has to go back. Cummins bowls a good length ball outside off, Agarwal looks to push at it  but does not move his feet at all and the ball takes the outside edge and goes to Carey who makes no mistake. Two quick wickets after a good start.

Shikhar Dhawan (30/23): Josh Hazlewood to Shikhar Dhawan, OUT! CAUGHT! This is a poor shot! They have started so well but Dhawan has just thrown his wicket away. Just poor stuff from the left-hander. Just like the first ODI, Hazlewood gets the first breakthrough for Australia. Good length ball on middle, Dhawan wants to flay it over mid on but it takes the top edge and goes towards mid on. Mitchell Starc settles himself under it and takes a simple catch. 332 needed in 42.2 overs.

Virat Kohli (89/87): Josh Hazlewood to Virat Kohli, OUT! CAUGHT! What a brilliant catch from Henriques! Just terrific stuff from the all-rounder and this puts Australia right on top again. Hazlewood provides the breakthrough. Shortish on middle, Kohli pulls towards mid-wicket. Henriques dives to his left and takes a blinder. End of a very good innings from Kohli but neeeded to continue for his side.

Shreyas Iyer (38/36): Moises Henriques to Shreyas Iyer, OUT! That is a spectacular diving catch! It is not a bird. It is not a plane. It is a man who has hands and feet like a crane. Steven Smith, take a bow. A short ball, outside off, Iyer pulls but slightly mistimes it. That is enough for Smith. He leaps from short mid-wicket, like a spring being set loose, gets his hands to his right, calls the ball and it goes to his hands like a magnet! End of a fine 93-run stand. India need 237 from 161 balls.

KL Rahul (76/66): Adam Zampa to KL Rahul, OUT! CAUGHT! Rahul’s knock ends. Tossed up delivery wide outside off, Rahul gets down to play the mighty slog but there is no pace on the ball. All he gets is a massive top edge. Josh Hazlewood takes it calmly, reverse cup, on a knee, at short third man. A fine, fine, effort from KL. Has given India a real chance. 102 more needed from 38 balls.

Hardik Pandya (28/31): Pat Cummins to Hardik Pandya, OUT! CAUGHT! Pandya holes out and is that the game now? Another cutter, outside off, Pandya gets across, looks to go big but mistimes it towards long off. Easy catch for Steven Smith at long off. Australia have bowled well to Hardik in this game. Did not bowl much on the stumps and kept on bowling wide, making him reach out for the balls.

Ravindra Jadeja (24/11): Pat Cummins to Ravindra Jadeja, OUT! CAUGHT! Jadeja falls, in trying to keep up with the required rate. Entertaining cameo though. A length ball, outside off, angling across, Jadeja looks to go over mid off who is inside the circle. But the ball barely arrives. He is through his shot way too early and the ball takes the top edge. Glenn Maxwell runs back and takes it calmly. He is pumped up but Australia will not breathe easy till Hardik is around. 69 more needed in 23 balls.

Mohammed Shami (1/4): Glenn Maxwell to Mohammed Shami, OUT! CAUGHT! Another one bites the dust! Floated ball outside off, Shami looks to go big but it takes the top edge and goes over the bowler’s head. Maxwell runs back and takes a comfortable catch.

Jasprit Bumrah (0/2): Adam Zampa to Jasprit Bumrah, OUT! LBW! That was as plumb as it gets! Zampa gets his second. A wrong’un on off, spinning in. Bumrah looks to defend but misses and gets rapped on the pads, Australia appeal and the finger goes up. Bumrah knew it and he started to walk back before the decision was made.

Navdeep Saini* (10/10) and Yuzvendra Chahal* (4/6): Glenn Maxwell to Yuzvendra Chahal, That’s it! Floated on middle, Chahal flicks it to long on for a single. AUSTRALIA WIN BY 51 RUNS.
