Updated - Mar 4, 2019 7:09 pm
India bounced back against Australia with a 6-wicket victory in the first of the 5 ODIs played in Hyderabad. Chasing a mere 237-run target, India were four down for 99 runs but a rescue act from MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav helped the Men in Blue take a 1-0 lead with ten deliveries to spare. While the bowling has been on the top for the Aussies, their inconsistency with the bat is extending their poor record in the 50-overs format.
All the key stats and numbers ahead of the crucial 2nd ODI in Nagpur:
3-0 – India defeated Australia in all the three ODI matches played at the VCA Stadium in Nagpur. India defeated the Aussies by 99 runs in 2009 and won while chasing by six and seven wickets respectively in 2013 and 2017. Interestingly, India lost both the ODI games they played against other teams here.
11-1 – 11 out of the 12 List A matches hosted by the VCA Stadium in Nagpur since 2012 have been won by the chasing teams. The teams batting first have won only two of the eight ODIs played at this venue.
11.08 – Aaron Finch’s batting average in international cricket since his debut Test series against Pakistan in October 2018. In the previous 23 international innings, Finch has scored only 255 runs with only one fifty.
In the last eight innings, Finch has been dismissed for a single-digit score on seven occasions. He scored only 45 runs at an average of 5.62 in those eight innings.
26.75 – Shikhar Dhawan averages only 26.75 in 2019 as he scored only 321 runs from 13 international innings. He only has 370 scored runs in his previous 15 ODI innings at an average of 26.43 with only two fifties.

349 – Number of sixes Rohit Sharma has hit in his international career so far. If Rohit hits one more six, he will be the 2nd Indian after MS Dhoni to hit 350 international sixes. He will also be the first player to achieve this feat for India as Dhoni has only 345 sixes while playing for India.
1990 – Ravindra Jadeja needs ten more runs to complete 2000 runs in ODI cricket. He will be only the 3rd Indian and the 25th player overall in ODI cricket to score 2000+ runs and bag 150+ wickets.
