India’s Rohit Sharma Shines As Australia Struggle To Contain The Run Rate
India’s Rohit Sharma put on a masterful batting display as Australia struggled to contain the run rate in the second ODI of the three-match series at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
The Indian opener scored an impressive 119 off 128 balls, hitting 11 fours and four sixes in the process. His innings was the cornerstone of India’s total of 302/5, which proved to be too much for the Australian side.
Sharma was well supported by Shikhar Dhawan, who scored a quickfire 74 off 56 balls, and Virat Kohli, who scored a steady 45 off 54 balls.
The Australian bowlers were unable to contain the run rate, with the spinners in particular struggling to make an impact. The pacers fared better, with Mitchell Starc taking two wickets and Pat Cummins taking one.
In response, Australia were bowled out for 251 in the 48th over, with Glenn Maxwell top-scoring with a valiant 73 off 61 balls.
The win gives India a 1-0 lead in the series, and puts them in a strong position to win the series. The third and final ODI will be played on Wednesday.
India’s Jasprit Bumrah Takes The Lead As Australia Struggle To Keep Up
India’s Jasprit Bumrah has taken the lead in the ongoing Test series between India and Australia, as the Australian team struggles to keep up.
The Indian fast bowler has been in top form, taking a total of 15 wickets in the first two Tests. He has been a major contributor to India’s success in the series, with his accurate and consistent bowling.
Bumrah has been able to keep the Australian batsmen in check, with his ability to move the ball both ways and his ability to bowl at a good pace. He has been able to take wickets at regular intervals, and has been a major factor in India’s success in the series.
The Australian team, on the other hand, has been struggling to keep up with Bumrah’s performance. They have been unable to find a way to counter his bowling, and have been unable to put up a fight against him.
The third Test of the series is set to begin on December 17th, and it will be interesting to see if the Australian team can find a way to counter Bumrah’s bowling and put up a fight against him. If they are unable to do so, it could be a long and difficult series for them.
India’s Ravindra Jadeja Strikes Back To Level The Series Against Australia
India’s Ravindra Jadeja has struck back to level the series against Australia, with a stunning performance in the fourth One Day International (ODI) match.
The all-rounder put on a masterclass of batting and bowling, scoring an unbeaten 66 off 50 balls and taking three wickets for just 29 runs. His performance helped India to a series-levelling seven-wicket victory over Australia in Bengaluru.
Jadeja’s batting was the highlight of the match, as he and Kedar Jadhav (90 not out) put on an unbeaten partnership of 137 runs to take India to victory. His innings included four fours and four sixes, and he was named Man of the Match for his efforts.
With the ball, Jadeja was equally impressive, taking three wickets in his 10 overs. He dismissed Australia’s top three batsmen, including captain Steve Smith, to help restrict the visitors to a total of 293.
The win means the series is now tied at 2-2, with the final match to be played in Nagpur on Sunday. India will be hoping that Jadeja can continue his fine form and help them to a series victory.
Australia’s David Warner Leads The Way As India Struggle To Keep Up The Pace
Australia’s David Warner has taken the lead in the ongoing Test series against India, with the opener scoring a century in the first innings of the first Test in Adelaide.
Warner’s knock of 111 was the cornerstone of Australia’s first innings total of 191, and set the tone for the rest of the match. India’s batsmen, meanwhile, struggled to keep up the pace, with only Cheteshwar Pujara (123) and Ajinkya Rahane (70) managing to reach double figures.
The Indian bowlers, however, put in a much better performance in the second innings, with Jasprit Bumrah taking four wickets and Ravichandran Ashwin claiming three. But despite their efforts, Australia were able to set India a target of 323 to win, which proved too much for the visitors.
The result means that Australia now lead the four-match series 1-0, and will be looking to extend their lead when the second Test begins in Melbourne on December 26. With Warner in such fine form, India will need to find a way to contain him if they are to have any chance of getting back into the series.
