Rohit Sharma is named the Man of the Match. 16:44(IST)
Another comfortable win for Australia. It was a carbon-copy of the first ODI. An easy chase, the Indian spinners looked listless and the dropped catches didn't help them. Another Rohit Sharma ton goes in vain. he along with Rahane set a brilliant platform but Australia bounced back hard at the death with 5/38 from last five overs. Australia started off cautiously but then Finch and Marsh stepped up the scoring and that set a very good platform adding 146 runs for Australia. The dropped catches and missed run out didn't help India's cause. Australia lost the openers in quick succession but Bailey and Smith steadied the ship with a 78-runs stand and Bailey made sure he took them past the finish line with a brilliant 76.

Good change of pace in that over. Four runs off the over. 10 needed off 12.
Sran back on, 14 needed off 18 now. 16:25(IST) After 47 overs, Australia 295/3 (Bailey 73, Maxwell 15 )
It's all too easy for Australia. Bailey heaves one over mid-wicket for a boundary and then looks to slash but ends up slicing it just over Jadeja for a couple. Two singles more make it 10 runs from the over.
16:19(IST) After 46 overs, Australia 284/3 (Bailey 66, Maxwell 13 )
Six runs off the over. Not too many risks taken. Australia inching closer. 25 needed off 24 balls now.
16:17(IST) 16:16(IST) After 45 overs, Australia 278/3 (Bailey 64, Maxwell 11 )
Clever and sensible stuff from Bailey and Maxwell. Not taking too many risks and still getting 7 runs from the over. A couple of twos and three singles. 31 needed 30 now.
16:12(IST) After 44 overs, Australia 271/3 (Bailey 60, Maxwell 8 )
India need to do something out-of-the-box now. It's getting easy for Australia. Bailey smashes one over long off for a six to bring up his fifty and then slashes one over point for another boundary in the over. 13 runs off the over. 38 needed 36 now.
16:09(IST) FIFTY for Bailey!
He gets there in style as he lofts one over long off off Sran. His 18th ODI fifty. Four fours and a six in his innings so far.
16:08(IST) After 43 overs, Australia 258/3 (Bailey 48, Maxwell 7 )
A good over for Australia but Bailey lived dangerously. Maxwell thumps one through covers for three and then Bailey goes for a wild slog ut gets an outside edge just over the leaping Dhoni for a boundary.
16:05(IST) After 42 overs, Australia 248/3 (Bailey 42, Maxwell 3 )
A good over from Jadeja. Maxwell has already started showing off his audacity as he reverse sweeps one but in the end mistimes it over covers for a couple. Four runs off the over. 61 needed off 48 balls.
Looks like Australia will clinch this one comfortably, in any case stay tuned for the post-match live streaming of Ayaz Memon's analysis with Vinayakk on this live blog. 16:01(IST) OUT! India have managed to scalp the wicket of Smith! S Smith b Yadav 46 (47b 4x4 0x6)
A really arrogant shot. He backs away and looks to slash a good length ball, misses and finds his timber rattled. A much-needed wicket for India.
Glenn Maxwell is the new batsman.
15:55(IST) After 40 overs, Australia 239/2 (Smith 45, Bailey 37 )
A lot happened in that over. Both the batsmen, Ishant along with a streaker were all in action. Bailey living dangerously in that over. He gets an inside edge which flies inches wide of the leg stump and then gets a faint edge on the slower one which falls short of the keeper. He finally gets one off the middle as he guides one to third man for a single. Smith then smashes one straight back, it flicks Ishant's fingers and runs away to the fence. There is a
streaker on the field - the play gets halted and the screen shows it's a 8000 dollar fine for him. Thnigs get underway with a couple of singles. 12 runs off the over. 15:48(IST) After 39 overs, Australia 222/2 (Smith 40, Bailey 31 )
All too easy for Smith and Bailey. The running has been exceptional. A couple and three singles off the over.
15:44(IST) After 38 overs, Australia 222/2 (Smith 39, Bailey 27 )
The 50 stand comes up between Smith and Bailey. Some excellent running and an odd boundary every over is making things easier for Australia. After a couple of twos, Smith cuts one through point for a boundary. 11 runs off the over.
15:41(IST) After 37 overs, Australia 211/2 (Smith 30, Bailey 25 )
Too short from Umesh. That's the case with both him and Sran. Bailey cuts the first one through point and then a ball later, pulls one through mid-wicket for a boundary. 7 runs off the over.
15:39(IST) 15:38(IST) 15:37(IST) After 36 overs, Australia 204/2 (Smith 30, Bailey 18 )
Sensible cricket from Australia. Smith has been brilliant with his running. Three singles and a couple in that over.
15:31(IST) After 35 overs, Australia 199/2 (Smith 27, Bailey 16 )
Bailey lives dangerously as his chips one just wide of Kohli for a single. Kohli then drops one short and Smith hammers it through mid-wicket for a boundary. Bailey tried to hit a couple hard but couldn't get them off the middle. 7 runs off the over.
Virat Kohli into the attack now.
15:29(IST) 15:28(IST) After 34 overs, Australia 192/2 (Smith 22, Bailey 14 )
A good over from Ashwin. Smith chips one down the track for a couple. Ashwin then bowls five dot balls and beats Smith's inside edge too with one that turns in sharply.
15:26(IST) After 33 overs, Australia 190/2 (Smith 20, Bailey 14 )
Sran gets away cheaply in that over. He oversteps and delivers a no ball and then bowls a slower high full toss way outide off, Smith chases and looks to absolutely clobber it but ends up mistiming straight back down the ground. Bailey then hammers one straight back over Sran's head for a boundary. 9 runs off the over.
15:22(IST) After 32 overs, Australia 182/2 (Smith 18, Bailey 9 )
Runs coming at a decent rate despite the dismissal of Marsh. After a couple of singles, Bailey gets down to paddle one but misses, Dhoni too misses it and it runs away for four byes. Another couple of singles make it 8 runs from the over.
15:20(IST) After 31 overs, Australia 174/2 (Smith 16, Bailey 3 )
Not a good comeback over from Sran. He was a tad too short in that over. That's been the case with him throughout this innings so far. Smith cuts one through point for a couple. Bailey then drives one through covers for three and Smith then cuts another short one through covers for another couple. 8 runs off the over.
15:18(IST) 15:16(IST) 15:15(IST) After 30 overs, Australia 166/2 (Smith 11, Bailey 0 )
Brilliant over from Ishant, just one run and a wicket off it.
15:14(IST) OUT! Ishant removes Marsh. S Marsh c Kohli b I Sharma 71 (84b 5x4 0x6)
Good length delivery on middle and leg, nips away a tad. Marsh looks to turn it to the leg side but gets a leading edge high in the air, Kohli settles under the swirling ball and pouches a good catch.
George Bailey is the new batsman.
15:08(IST) 15:07(IST) After 29 overs, Australia 165/1 ( Marsh 71, Smith 10 )
Good over from Jadeja. He concentrated on bowling a flatter trajectory and hurried the batsman up. Just two runs off it.
15:05(IST) After 28 overs, Australia 163/1 ( Marsh 70, Smith 9 )
Marsh gets another lifeline. Ishant draws an outside edge with a lovely outswinger, Manish Pandey at first slip dives low to his right but doesn't manage to hold on. A drop and Marsh continues to ride his luck. 7 runs off the over. 15:00(IST) 14:59(IST) After 27 overs, Australia 156/1 ( Marsh 67, Smith 6 )
Smith gets off the mark in style. He plays an outrageous shot as he whips one from way outside off through mid-wicket for a bounadry. Four more singles make it 8 runs from the over.
14:56(IST) After 26 overs, Australia 148/1 ( Marsh 65, Smith 0 )
Good pace from Ishant in that over. Marsh looked to guide one to third man but was beaten by the pace as it zipped through the surface. Just the two runs off the over.
14:52(IST) After 25 overs, Australia 145/1 ( Marsh 62, Smith 0 )
A successful over for India. Jadeja conceded just 3 runs and managed to scalp the wicket of Finch in it.
14:51(IST) OUT! Jadeja finally gets the breakthrough! A Finch c Rahane b Jadeja 71 (81b 7x4 1x6)
It's full outside off, Finch charges and looks to go inside out, he doesn't get the angle right and ends up mistiming it to long off. Raahane charges, dives forward and pouches it inches above the ground. It's clean on the replays and Finch has to walk back.
Steven Smith strides out to the middle
14:46(IST) After 24 overs, Australia 142/0 (Finch 69, Marsh 61 )
Marsh gets a lifeline now. Umesh drops it short, Marsh pulls it to fine leg where Sran dives to his left but doesn't manage to hold on. It was traveling at the rate of knots and Sran did really well with that effort. 7 runs off that over.
14:40(IST) After 23 overs, Australia 135/0 (Finch 68, Marsh 57 )
Australia have upped the ante big time. Three fours in this over. They have scored 42 runs off the last 18 balls. Marsh pulls a short one over wide long on for a boundary. Finch then cuts one through point and then whips another one over wide mid on for the third four of the over. 15 runs off the over.
14:37(IST) After 22 overs, Australia 120/0 (Finch 59, Marsh 51 )
A run out chance missed! Marsh clips one to short fine leg and sets off for a risky single. The fielder responds with a flat throw, Marsh is struggling, it misses the stumps but Ashwin - the bowler - for some unfathomable reasons leaves it alone rather than collecting it. A big let-off for Marsh. Finch then lofts one over extra cover for a couple and then cuts it through point for four. 11 runs off the over. 14:35(IST) After 21 overs, Australia 109/0 (Finch 52, Marsh 47 )
And that's the over Dhoni would have dreaded. Finch goes ballistic on Umesh.
Fifty for Finch! And what a way to get it. 4,4 and 6 off Umesh. Australia cruising. First a leg glance, then one lofted over mid off and then a huge hit over midwicket. SIXTEEN RUNS FROM THAT OVER! 14:30(IST) After 20 overs, Australia 93/0 (Finch 37, Marsh 46 )
Ashwin starts off after drinks And seven came off it. Four singles, and a good late cut from Marsh gives a three - Ishant was a bit slow at the cover boundary. Not his day at all so far. 14:24(IST)
Required rate is 7.19 now but still 10 wickets in hand and that is the most crucial aspect.
14:23(IST) After 19 overs, Australia 86/0 (Finch 34, Marsh 42 )
A nervy over for Australia. Umesh continues and off the first ball, Marsh gets himself in a tangle. With the ball at the crease, Finch calls for a quick one, but Marsh is late to respond.But he runs in line with the throw at the non-strikers from Umesh and manages to escape. Got to say, another life for Marsh there. Just four runs from it too, as the umpires call for drinks at the humid Gabba. 14:19(IST) 14:18(IST) After 18 overs, Australia 82/0 (Finch 31, Marsh 42 )
Ashwin with an economical over, just three from it. Marsh is looking good against the offie, rocking back and cutting well. Reqiured rate is over 7 now, but India are yet to get a breakthrough. 14:16(IST) After 17 overs, Australia 79/0 (Finch 30, Marsh 40)
Oh, dear. Umesh misfires in that over. Eleven runs, as Marsh is making Indians pay for the drop(s). First ball is slapped through mid-off and a bad ball down the leg is glanced fine for two boundaries.
Time for some pace. Umesh back in the attack.
14:12(IST) After 16 overs, Australia 68/0 (Finch 30, Marsh 31)
Another eventless over, four from it - four singles. Penultimate ball saw a shout for LBW from Ashwin as Finch tried to sweep, but it was off the bat.
14:10(IST) 14:09(IST) After 15 overs, Australia 64/0 (Finch 29, Marsh 29)
Australia are going along merrily now. 4 singles and a well-taken two to long on from that Jadeja over. Not much fuss.
14:07(IST) After 14 overs, Australia 58/0 (Finch 25, Marsh 27)
Another interesting over from a spinner. Ashwin is tossing it up slow and getting some turn.
Marsh gets another life. A strong cut off the backfoot flies to Rahane at first slip but goes just over his head before he could snatch it. Tough, but we have seen Rahane take blinders. It trickles to third man for four. 14:05(IST) 14:03(IST) After 13 overs, Australia 51/0 (Finch 24, Marsh 21)
A huge let-off for Marsh in that over. Marsh charged down the track and looked to go downtown but he didn't get it off the middle. Ended up mistiming it to long on where Ishant dropped a simple one. 3 runs off the over. Marsh gets lucky.
14:01(IST) After 12 overs, Australia 48/0 (Finch 23, Marsh 19)
Ashwin concentraated on bowling it a bit flat. Marsh tried to use his feet. Kohli and Jadeja with excellent piecees of ground fielding respectively. Three runs off the over. Decent start from the off-spinner.
Ravichandran Ashwin into the attack now.
13:56(IST) After 11 overs, Australia 45/0 (Finch 22, Marsh 16)
A good start from Jadeja. He is getting the ball to zip off the surface. One turns and beats Finch's prod. Five singles off the over.
Ravindra Jadeja into the attack now...
13:54(IST) After 10 overs, Australia 40/0 (Finch 20, Marsh 14)
Finch gets a lifeline in that over. He might have been back in the pavilion had Kohli been on target. Marsh pushes one to mid off, Finch is backing out too far, Kohli is quick and responds with a quick throw but it misses the stumps. It would have been mighty close had it hit the stumps. 2 runs off the over.
13:50(IST) After 9 overs, Australia 36/0 (Finch 19, Marsh 13)
A good over from Sran. Was good with his lines and bowled in the corridor of uncertainty. The last one was short, Marsh pulled it powerfully but Rohit at mid-wicket did well to make the stop. Just 2 runs off the over.
13:47(IST) 13:45(IST) After 8 overs, Australia 36/0 (Finch 18, Marsh 12)
Ishant hasn't found his rhythm yet. Marsh flays one through point for three. He then brings a couple back sharply into Finch, who defends the first one solidly but misses the other one and is hit high on the pads. A nother good length delivery outside off is left alone. Four runs off the over.
13:40(IST) After 7 overs, Australia 32/0 (Finch 17, Marsh 9)
A good over from Sran. The good thing was, he wasn't much on the shorter side. 3 runs off the over.
13:37(IST) After 6 overs, Australia 29/0 (Finch 14, Marsh 9)
Ishant still not getting his lines right. Another wide in that over and still a tad leg-sidish. Three singles and a wide in that over.
13:32(IST) After 5 overs, Australia 25/0 (Finch 12, Marsh 8)
A beautiful over from Sran. He mixed his swing really well, a couple beat Finch's outside edge and then he brought one back in sharply to cramp Finch for room and hit him high on the pads. Just a leg bye off the over.
13:30(IST) After 4 overs, Australia 24/0 (Finch 12, Marsh 8)
Jadeja has been a livewire in the field so far. Marsh smashed a couple through point and Jadeja made two very good stops. Ishant had fluffed his lines earlier in the over when he bowled one onto Marsh's pads and it was punished as the left-hander trickled it to fine leg for a boundary. 5 runs off the over.
13:24(IST) After 3 overs, Australia 19/0 (Finch 12, Marsh 4)
Sran still a tad on the shorter side. A couple of full deliveries plant seeds of doubts in mind of Finch. He leaves one and then goes for a booming drive but misses. Four runs off the over.
13:22(IST) 13:20(IST) 13:19(IST) After 2 overs, Australia 15/0 (Finch 9, Marsh 3)
A rusty start from Ishant. A couple of wides in that over. Marsh drives the first one - an overpitched delivery - through extra cover for three. But the lanky pacer bounces back with a couple of probing deliveries outside off to end the over. 6 runs off the over.
Ishant Sharma to bowl from the other end.
13:13(IST) After 1 over, Australia 9/0 (Finch 8, Marsh 0)
A bad start from Sran. He was too much on the shorter side and missed his lines. Finch hammered a pull through mid-wicket for a boundary and then trickles a delivery on the pads to fine leg for the second four of the over. 9 runs off the over.
Right! Back after the break. Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh are the openers. Sran will start off proceedings.
12:34(IST) 12:33(IST) India post 308/8!
A brilliant last over from Hastings. 4 runs and two wickets off it including a run out off the last ball. Superb fightback from Australia. 38/5 in the last five overs. India's death batting might just be the difference between the two sides. However, nothing to take away from Australian bowlers who were brilliant with their lengths at the death. India bowlers need to step up and deliver now.......
12:28(IST) OUT! Ashwin walks back to the pavilion. R Ashwin c Boland b Hastings 1 (2b 0x4 0x6)
It's full outside off from Boland. Ashwin shuffles way across for a scoop but only manages to get a top edge to short fine leg.
Umesh Yadav is the new batsman.
12:24(IST) OUT! Faulkner gets 2nd wicket in the over! Pandey departs! M Pandey c Paris b Faulkner 6 (5b 1x4 0x6)
It's that slower ball again, Pandey looks to go downtwon but is done in by the change in pace. He mistimes it straight to long off.
Ravichandran Ashwin is the new batsman.
12:21(IST) OUT! Rahane misses out on his ton! Departs for 89! A Rahane c Smith b Faulkner 89 (80b 6x4 1x6)
Faulkner has bowled really well so far, especially at the death and now he gets a crucial wicket. It's a slower one outside off, Rahane charges down the track for a heave but gets a top edge to deep mid-wicket where the fielder makes no mistake.
Ravindra Jadeja is the new batsman.
12:18(IST) After 48 overs, India 295/4 ( Rahane 87, Pandey 1)
Finaly, a good over for India. Rahane takes a couple of twos and then cracks a low full toss through mid-wicket for a boundary. Another couple of twos makes it 12 runs from the over. Goo stuff.
12:14(IST) After 47 overs, India 283/4 ( Rahane 75, Pandey 1)
Rahane somehow managed a boundary in that over but it was a streaky one as he got an outside edge on his heave to third man. Just 7 runs off the over. Faulkner, again, really good with his yorkers.
12:12(IST) After 46 overs, India 276/4 ( Rahane 69, Pandey 0)
Another very good over for Australia. 6 runs and a wicket off it. India have scored just 16 runs for the loss of Dhoni in the last five overs.
12:10(IST) OUT! Dhoni departs! MS Dhoni c Maxwell b Boland 11 (10b 0x4 0x6)
He was struggling to find the middle and he perished now. Looks to go down town, doesn't get it off the middle, doesn't get the elecation and hands it straight into the hands of Maxwell.
Manish Pandey is the new batsman.
12:04(IST) After 45 overs, India 270/3 ( Rahane 66, Dhoni 8)
A brilliant over from Faulkner. A mixed his pace really well and bowled in the blockhole. Rahane missed out on a couple of heaves. Five runs off the over.
12:02(IST) After 44 overs, India 265/3 ( Rahane 65, Dhoni 4)
A good over under circumstances. Just 5 runs off it. Six overs remaining. India would look to post around 320-330.
11:58(IST) 11:57(IST) After 43 overs, India 260/3 ( Rahane 62, Dhoni 3)
A successful over for Australia. They managed to get the big wicket of Rohit in that over. Rahane smackes the first ball for a six over long on but the very next ball he hit it straight and Faulner deflected it onto the stumps. Three singles and a two more made it 11 runs and a wicket off the over.
11:54(IST) OUT! That's the only way they could have seen the back of Rohit! RG Sharma run out 124 (127b 11x4 3x6)
Rohit is really unlucky. He is run out at non-striker's end as Rahane smacks a straight drive, Faulkner gets a hand to it and it deflects onto the stumps. Rohit has backed out too far. He is angry as he trudges back to the pavilion. He was looking set for another big one and Australia have got really lucky here.
MS Dhoni is the new batsman.
11:52(IST) After 42 overs, India 249/2 (Rohit 124, Rahane 54)
A good over for India, 10 runs off it. Rohit started the over well as he lofted one over extra cover for a boundary. Five singles and a wide followed to make it a 10-run over. India need more of the big shots rather than singles.
11:48(IST) 11:44(IST) Match Preview: India to address bowling worries in Brisbane ODI Brisbane: India will on Friday look to an improved bowling performance to clinch the second One-Day International against Australia at the Gabba ground here after having squandered a strong total of 309 runs in their first outing.
India posted a strong total of 309 runs in the first One-Day in Perth on Tuesday but toothless bowling, particularly in the Australian run chase, saw the home team winning the match by five wickets -- with four balls to spare -- to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

The run chase was fairly comfortable as the Indian bowlers, save debutant pacer Barinder Sran's 3-56 in 9.2 overs, were completely ineffective, specifically in the mid-phase of the Australian innings.
India opener Rohit Sharma, who scored an inspiring knock of 171 at Perth, said the team was upbeat despite losing the first match. He too attributed India's loss to their failure to take wickets during Australia's mid-innings.
Australia's skipper Steve Smith and George Bailey put together a 242-run partnership for the third wicket that secured the Australian victory.
"Our morale is very good because we played very good cricket and we know that," Rohit said at a press conference here on Thursday.
"But we need to learn how to take wickets in the middle. How to build pressure in the middle overs is something we need to be aware of. Whoever is bowling in the middle overs, spinners or fast bowlers, they just need to make a habit of making breakthroughs in the middle which is very important.
"If wickets fall in the middle, then it affects the momentum of the opposition team. That is what we need to do in the second ODI," he added.
India went in with five bowlers -- three pacers and two spinners -- at Perth but it proved futile as the spinners, seen as India's trumpcard, were entirely ineffectual.
India skipper M.S. Dhoni admitted after the loss that he was surprised at the abject failure of the spinners but said he retains faith in them.
However, he will have the option of chopping and changing the line-up as experienced pacer Ishant Sharma is fit and available for selection and could make an entry in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
India expect the conditions at the Gabba to be similar to the WACA ground in Perth and fancies a bouncy pitch to greet them.
"Conditions will be very similar to what we had in Perth. We might get a bit of extra bounce here (at Gabba), I guess. Perth was a little bit on the slower side once the shine was taken off the ball. Here the fast bowlers might get a little more assistance through the longer period," Rohit said.
India will have to be consistent in their bowling performance in order to contain a strong Australian batting line-up, led by Smith and Bailey, though the hosts will be without opener David Warner and all-rounder Mitchell Marsh.
Warner become dad for the second time on Thurday and is away on paternity leave while Marsh was rested to avoid burnout. Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh will be vying to take the spot rendered vacant by Warner in the playing eleven.
