Shreyas Iyer also etched a 200-run partnership with Shubman Gill in the match. In the previous game, Iyer lost his wicket for just 3 runs with a run-out, after a goof-up with Shubman Gill while sneaking a single.
Talking about IND vs AUS 2nd ODI, Australia won the toss and opted to bowl first. India lost opener Ruturaj Gaikwad cheaply for 8 runs in the 6th over. However, Gill and Iyer held their patience and arrived with valiant knocks.
In 30 overs, India crossed 210 runs on the board losing 1 wicket. India made one change to their playing XI from the last ODI. Jasprit Bumrah was dropped from the team for personal reasons and Prasidh Krishna was picked as a replacement.
India lead the series 1-0. Earlier, the men-in-blue won the 1st ODI by 5 wickets. Chasing a 277-run target in the match, KL Rahul scored an unbeaten 58 runs to drive the team to victory. Suryakumar Yadav also played a crucial knock of 50 in the match.
