Australian Cricket team is in India for a long limited overs Cricket series. They are here for 5 ODIs and 3 T20s. Both the teams played first match at Chennai where India defeated Aussies in a rain curtailed match. Both the teams have moved to Kolkata for the next match. Fans will be able to watch the Cricket between both the teams on Star Network. Live streaming will be available on Hotstar.
Australia is trailing in the series; however, this is a 5 match series and Australian skipper Steve Smith would like to come back hard in the second match. Australian batting struggled against Indian spinners. Chasing a target of 164 they could only manage 137. In their top order only David Warner manage a double digit score. Apart from him only Glenn Maxwell and James Faulkner could get to double digits. Aussie management would like their batsmen to come good against Indian bowling.
Australian bowling was impressive as Nathan Coulter-Nile shook the Indian batting. Indian were struggling at 11-3 early in the inning. Rohit Sharma played decently; however, the highlight of the inning was the performance of Indian middle and lower order. Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar took India to a very good score.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli could not score a run and he would like to amend the same in the second match. Manish Pandey also could not open the account and he too would like to score some runs. MS Dhoni is in great touch and would like to continue his form. Ajinkya Rahane was out cheaply and would like to score run and give India a good start.
Indian bowling was spot on as Indian spinners ran through the Australian batting and they would like to continue the same form going forward in the series. None of the bowlers went wicketless as Yuzvendra Chahal took 3 wickets. Kuldeep Yadav and Hardik Pandya took 2 wickets each. The pace duo Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah took 1 wicket each.
Weather forecast for the second match is not looking good and there are chance of a rain curtailed match again. Fans would hope for a full match though.
