India will look to seal the series as they face Australia in the 2nd One-day international match to be played at Indore on 24 September 2023. It was an impressive performance by the Indian team as they bowled out Australia for 276. Mohammed Shami took 5 for 51, while Bumrah, Ashwin, and Jadeja took 1 wicket each.
Shubman Gill and Ruturaj Gaikwad provided a flying start putting on 142 runs for the opening wicket. Despite wickets in middle overs, KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav put up an important partnership that led India to a comfortable victory. India might bring Mohammed Siraj to replace Jasprit Bumrah in the playing XI for tomorrow’s match.
On the other hand, Australia posted 276 in 50 overs. David Warner, Steve Smith, Cameron Green, and Josh Inglis got starts but were unable to convert into big scores. In the bowling department, Adam Zampa was the pick of bowlers with 2 for 57 in 10 overs while Pat Cummins and Sean Abbott grabbed 1 wicket each.
The experienced duo of Mitchell Starc and Glenn Maxwell will not feature in the second One-day international match.
Details– India vs Australia, 2nd ODI
Venue– Holkar Stadium, Indore
Date and Time– 24th September, 1.30 PM IST
The Holkar Stadium is one of the brilliant batting pitches in India. India smashed 385 for 9 against New Zealand in 2023 with Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma scoring centuries putting pressure on Kiwi bowlers. It was a brilliant display as India won the match comfortably to whitewash.
The Indian team has a great record at this venue winning all six matches they played at this venue. The team batting first won 3 times while the team batting second won times. It will be a huge challenge for the Australian team to stop the winning momentum of Team India. India won their only match against the Aussies at this venue.
The captain that wins the toss would likely field first. It promises to be a high-scoring affair as both teams have explosive batting lineups.
