India have already taken a 1-0 lead over Aussies with the win in the first ODI at Mohali. There were many boxed that the Indian team ticked ahead of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. Mohammed Shami staged a strong comeback with a five-wicket haul in the Mohali match. He hit the right length and got the wickets as a return.
Another huge plus for India was Suryakumar Yadav finally raising his hand. He deliveried the good by stroking fifty off just 49 balls. KL Rahul continued to bat well, playing a match-winning knock, finishing the game with a six.
India chased down 277-run target given by Australia after KL Rahul won the toss and asked visitors to bat first. Even in the hot and humid conditions in Mohali, Indians bowled superbly. Only David Warner could stike a fifty as Aussies got bowled out for 276 on the board at the end of 50 overs.
India openers Shubman Gill and Ruturaj Gaikwad shone with the bat, stroking 71 and 74 respectively to help set the base for the chase.
