India and Australia are playing a three-match ODI series which got underway September 22 in Mohali. India are leading the series 1-0 after winning the Mohali game.
Mohammad Shami picked up five wickets to restrict Australia to a first innings total of 276 runs. David Warner top scored with a half century, while the likes of Steve Smith and Josh Inglis also made significant contributions. In reply, Indian openers Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shubman Gill stitched together a first-wicket partnership of 142 runs, after which KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav scored half centuries to take India over the line with eight balls to spare. For Australia, Adam Zampa picked up two wickets while skipper Pat Cummins and Sean Abbott picked up one each.
The second ODI will be the best opportunity for the bench strength to prove its mettle because the senior players from both teams will return for the third ODI. Shreyas Iyer, who has not been able to make most of the chances given to him in recent times, was run-out for three runs in the first ODI. He will be looking to make amends for it in the second ODI. This is also the last series for both the teams to prepare for the World Cup which gets underway on October 5.
