Australia took early lead in the 3-match ODI series against India as they defeated them in the first match at Sydney by 34 runs. The Aussie pacers put India’s formidable top-order under pressure which made the difference in the first ODI. Rohit Sharma’s stand-alone performance wasn’t enough to guide India home as no other batsman supported him in the cause. Australia would require a better batting show than playing it safe as they did in the previous game if they want to win this series.
