The second one-day international between India and Australia ended with India scoring 399 runs.

India won the first two One-Day Internationals (ODIs) against Australia, thus ending the series.

Australia’s Steve Smith said after their 99-run loss to India in the second ODI that they need to fix a few things before the ICC Cricket World Cup in October. On Sunday at the Holkar Cricket Stadium, India defeated Australia by 99 runs using the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) technique to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the three-game ODI series.

When we first arrived, the vibe here was positive. India deserves credit for their excellent batting…It was usually difficult to get a score of 400 there. I have been to other games at this venue, and it is a fantastic place to chase. We still had a ways to go. We’ve had a string of recent losses…We have yet to reach our top performance, which is crucial for winning a World Cup. Just a few details to iron out. We’re confident in our own good faith. Smith stated in the postgame presentation that both teams were still motivated by a desire to win despite preparations for the World Cup.

Australia, the home team, elected to have India bat first. The foundation for a massive inning was built with a 200-run partnership for the second wicket between Shubman Gill (104 runs in 97 balls, six fours, and four sixes) and Shreyas Iyer (105 runs in 90 balls, 11 fours and three sixes). After that, India reached 399/5 in 50 overs with half-centuries from captain KL Rahul (52 in 38 balls, with three fours and three sixes) and Suryakumar Yadav (72* in 37 balls with six fours and six sixes), as well as a cameo from Ishan Kishan (31 in 18 balls with two fours and two sixes).

Australia’s Cameron Green captured two wickets, but he also let their opponents score 103 runs. One door was taken by each of Josh Hazlewood, Sean Abbott, and Adam Zampa.

Australia’s odds of winning the chase for 400 were cut to 9/2 due to rain delays. When play resumed, the team needed to score 317 runs in 33 overs.

David Warner (53 runs off 39 balls, seven fours, and a six) and Marnus Labuschagne (27 runs off 16 balls) put up a crucial 80-run stand that helped steady the innings. However, wickets continued to tumble after this, as Australia eventually collapsed to 140/8.

Abbott (54 runs in 36 balls, including four fours and five sixes) and Josh Hazlewood (23 runs) provided fireworks, but the Australians still lost by 99 runs after being bowled out for 217.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja were India’s most effective bowlers. Ashwin took 3/41 and Jadeja 3/42. Two wickets were taken by Prasidh Krishna and one by Mohammed Shami.

With one game left in the series, India has already triumphed.
