The second ODI match has kicked off between India and Australia, where the hosts are batting first after having the toss in their favour. After having lost the first match against the Kangaroos, India will be putting its best show to steal the limelight. Though the two nations are arch-rivals while being in action, they don’t leave any chance to indulge in some light moments on the field. The same happened in this match as well.
Australian skipper and opener Aaron Finch was on the crease while he got hit by a full toss delivery. Navdeep Saini was on with his pace attack, and during the 11.5 overs, a full toss ball by the pacer hit him right on the tummy. The pace was set at the speed of 145.6kph. During that moment only, Finch was standing with a hand on his tummy, and Rahul was in some fun mood. He tapped on his belly area lightly, and it felt like the batsman had terrible pain.

And due to Rahul’s action, a fun moment was shared between Finch, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Rahul. The second match is on where the two openers of Australia are batting in full force to mark their names and win away the series. Talking of the first ODI, the hosts won the game by a big margin of 66 runs. While batting first, they posted huge 374 runs on the board, leaving the visitors absolutely stunned. Pace star Jasprit Bumrah was expected to shine in his full form, but the match didn’t turn in his favour.
Australia dominated India in all the sections in first ODI
Kangaroos stunned India by blowing them with two tons. Steve Smith and skipper Aaron Finch came up with brilliant tons while sending the bowlers to cleaners. Indian skipper Virat Kohli failed to rise on the occasion and guide the team towards victory. Shikhar Dhawan and Hardik Pandya became the flag bearers of India’s batting set up. Talking of the bowling section, Australian spinner Adam Zampa bagged four wickets in his account.
On the other hand, Mohammed Shami clinched three wickets under his belt to steal the show.
