India’s tour of Australia began with a thumping 66-run defeat in the first game of the 3-match ODI series. The Sydney cricket ground will be hosting the 2nd ODI as well where India needs to win at any cost to keep themselves alive in the series. India’s bowling went pale through the first ODI letting the home team post a huge total. The batsmen did a fine job for India to finish with 308/8 despite they lost early wickets while showing extra aggression in the first 15 overs of the chase.

Here are all the key stats and numbers ahead of the crucial 2nd ODI game to be played at the SCG:

0 – India failed to pick even one wicket during the first powerplay (1-10) in any of the last four ODI matches. In fact, India has picked only three wickets during the first ten overs in the seven ODIs they played in 2020.

2 – Jasprit Bumrah has picked up only two wickets in the ODI format across seven matches in 2020. One of them was the dismissal of Adam Zampa during the home series at the start of the year while another wicket was of Aaron Finch on Friday.
