IND vs AUS: Team India laid down their arms as soon as the match started, know what was the turning point of the second ODI

Visakhapatnam: Australia’s left-arm fast bowler Mitchell Starc wreaked havoc by taking five wickets for 53 runs to bundle out India for just 117 runs in 26 overs in the second ODI. Australia then scored 121 runs without losing a wicket in 11 overs to win the match by 10 wickets and level the three-match series at 1–1. Chasing a modest target, the Australian openers had no trouble getting it done. Mitchell Marsh hit an unbeaten 66 off 36 balls with six fours and six sixes while Travis Head scored an unbeaten 51 off 30 balls with 10 fours. No one thought that this match of 100 overs would end in less than T20 duration (total 37 overs).

What was the turning point of the match

The turning point of the match was the powerplay of the Indian innings. Rohit and Virat were batting well after the dismissal of Shubman Gill. But as soon as Rohit Sharma’s wicket fell, the team’s innings got derailed. India lost 5 wickets in the first 10 overs. The team could not recover from here. After Shubman Gill, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya were dismissed till the 10th over.

Australian bowler batsman both shone

At first all the Australian fast bowlers bowled brilliantly in helpful conditions to restrict the Indian team to a very simple score, while when it came to bat, both their openers showed that they were playing on a different pitch. The toe of Mitchell Starc saw the Indian team settle for their fourth-lowest total on their home soil. Starc first shook the Indian top order and then opened the claw with the wicket of Mohammad Siraj.

Only Virat Kohli could cross the 30 mark for India. Akshar Patel scored 29 runs but did not get any support from the other end. Sean Abbott and Nathan Ellis ably supported Starc, taking three and two wickets respectively. Australia captain Steve Smith won the toss and took the right decision to bowl first. There was no looking back after Starc dismissed Shubman Gill for a duck on the third ball of the first over.
