Australia v India 2nd ODI

Mohammad Yousuf

Australia (288/5) beat India (254/9) by 34 runs.

Australia successfully defended their total of 5-288, winning the first match of three in the one-day global series by 34 runs to become the first team in worldwide cricket to taste victory in 1,000 matches across all formats. In a nightmare start to their chase, India were reduced to four for three in the fourth over, with Behrendorff snapping up Shikhar Dhawan for a duck in the very first over.

Harbhajan Singh has batted for wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant inclusion in the Indian ODI team and has also backed MS Dhoni to regain his form.

Rayudu, who retired from first-class cricket late a year ago to focus on limited-overs cricket, has played 46 ODIs and six T20 internationals for India.

Dhoni was unlucky as the ball that trapped him in front had pitched outside the line of the leg stump but the wicketkeeper-batsman consumed too many deliveries during his stay at the crease. But we were lucky to get Dhoni out lbw and we kept getting wickets from there on.

Rohit rued not having the challenge up their sleeve to save Dhoni, but said it was tough when decisions had to be made quickly.

Pompeo is now on a Mideast tour, bringing the Trump administration's anti-Iran message to the region. In a statement, the ministry said it lodged an official protest with Warsaw for hosting the event.

"India have potential in the middle order".

"Personally always feel that Dhoni batting at number four will be ideal for the team but we have got Rayudu who has done really well now at number four".

While Richardson is having his second run in the ODI side following four matches against England a year ago, for Behrendorff his debut marked a high point after a battle with a back injury which ruled him out of most of 2017-18.

"Then if I get picked, I get picked". The way he batted in the IPL 2018 was brilliant. "The game's moved forward since the 2015 World Cup and I don't think we've quite moved that way with the trends of the game, so from our point of view it's making sure that we get our style right - you've got to score 300 plus to be competitive", Haddin told Fox Sports.

Harbhajan further praised Rishabh Pant and said India must include the power-hitter in the side. He has the potential to hit six sixes.I am not talking about six sixes in an over but if he plays 30 balls he has the ability to hit at least six sixes, which can be game-changing. "We already lost three opening wickets and we needed a partnership but bowling was disciplined and I respect that", said Sharma.

It was a tonic for the ailing Australians, coming off their first-ever home Test series defeat to Virat Kohli´s India and after winning just three of their previous 24 ODIs.
