The live streaming of all matches of India vs Australia series is available online. India has a history of piling struggle when the match is against such a strong team like Australia. They sealed the five-match series and crashed into the ODI of this season.
Australia had the ground advantage. With a record of 6-0 in the ODI, they have an unbeaten side at the Chidambaram stadium. India managed to get six victories yet lost in five matches that were played in Chennai.
In the limited-over format, Virat Kohli took the lead ever since the Champions Trophy campaign in London. India suffered a heavy loss in the finals with Pakistan, our arch-rivals. But, the Indian team regained strength and bet Sri Lanka for an applauding 9-0.
It is definitely a rough summer for Australia. Steve Smith was shown the exit door in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. It didn’t end with that. Australian players had to pay dispute as they were not on the pitch for a month.
But, in the first ODI, India dominated Australia in style with a 26-run win in the five-match series. Now, India is 1-0 ahead in the series. It was the 118-run stand partnership of MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya with 79 and 83 runs respectively. This made India score 281 for seven wickets in 50 overs against Australia in Chennai on Sunday. Australia’s innings was reduced due to the rain and the target was 164.
Though Nathan Coulter-Nile took great efforts to bounce back, Dhoni combined with Kedar Jadhav, Pandya, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar to hit back and win the match. Australia seemed to lose wickets in regular intervals and finally got 137/9 in 21 overs.
