  • Can India roar back in the second half with the likes of Bumrah, Shami and Kuldeep to bowl. Or will Australia take the lead in this 3-match ODI series with Warner, Smith and Labuschagne firing? Join us after the break to find out!
  • So in a pitch where 300-plus scores are chased regularly, India have a below-par total of 256 to defend. Australia will be the happier side heading into the break and should chase this down with dew also set to play a a part.
  • Starc starts by saying that it is a good effort by all the bowlers. Adds that it is a good moment for him as he is playing just his 2nd ODI in India. On the key to bowling well on this track, Starc says that the Australian bowlers for the most part bowled good lines and lengths and varied their pace at the right time. Mentions that India have some quality spinners and quality quicks as well so they have to be on their toes. Ends by saying they have to bat well to win this match.
  • What a resounding bowling performance from the Australians. Finch won the toss and opted to bowl and his bowlers backed their captain. All 5 bowlers were exceptional and had at least one wicket to heir name. The pacers had 7 wickets amongst themselves. Mitchell Starc was the star of the show with 3 wickets. Richardson and Cummins had two wickets each. The spinners were not just economical but also got very crucial wickets. The leg spin of Zampa got rid of Kohli while Agar got rid of Rahul. None of the bowlers went for more than 6 runs in an over on a pitch where bowlers have feared to bowl. Before we head into the break, the star of the show Mitchell Starc is caught down for a quick chat with Michael Slater.
  • After being put into bat, India got off to a horror start losing Rohit Sharma early. Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul then steadied the ship with a 121-run stand. The former started off slowly but grew into his stride. Rahul though lacked aggression but once he departed the procession started. From 134/1 the hosts found themselves wanting at 164/5. The big finish they were laying the foundation for never came. Pant and Jadeja then tried to give them that blockbuster finish and added a 49-run stand but the pair departed in quick succession. 250 looked difficult but fight from Shami and Kuldeep saw the scoreboard have some respectability and has taken the hosts to 255.
  • Superb bowling performance from the visitors. On a wicket which has historically been a bowler's nightmare, the Australian bowlers have come and given a masterclass at Wankhede. High-fives all around amongst the Aussies as they know they have won the first half of this game.
  • 49.1 OUT! CAUGHT! Alex Carey has taken a superb catch and India have lost all their wickets. You don't see this everyday now do you, especially in ODIs. Back of a length ball on middle by Richardson, Shami looks to pull but gets a top edge on this one. The ball goes high in the sky and is swirling as it comes down. Alex Carey settles himself under it and takes a very good catch, keeping the ball between his chest and his gloves as he tumbles down. India end their innings on 255!
  • Jasprit Bumrah is the last man in. But before he starts there is a slight delay as we have a kite which is causing the delay.
  • 48.6 OUT! RUN OUT! Kuldeep Yadav departs and Smith has hit bulls eye here. Length ball outside off, Shami plays this one towards point and sets off as Kuldeep calls for a run. The ball has gone straight to Steven Smith who collects the ball and throws it at the striker's end and hits. Kuldeep walks back after scoring some important runs for the teams. 255/9
  • 48.5 Yadav goes back in his crease and defends this ball towards cover for a single.
  • 48.4 FOUR! Another one! Valuable runs these for India. Full ball just outside off, Kuldeep lofts this one over the mid off fielder and the ball races into the fence.
  • 48.3 Shami looks to make room but Starc follows him with a very full ball. Shami jams it down to long on and takes a single. 250 up for India and it looked very difficult at one stage but the tailenders have done well for India.
  • 48.2 Starc corrects his line a touch and bowls it on the pads of Yadav. He flicks it towards fine leg for one.
  • 48.2 Wide! Now Starc misses his line and the ball is sprayed down the leg side.

  • 47.2 Outside off on a length, Kuldeep guides it down to third man for one.

  • 46.4 On the stumps, KY blocks it.
  • 46.3 Full outside off, Kuldeep defends it towards point. Shami thinks of a single and comes out. The fielder has a shy at the bowler's end but misses. Even if he had hit Shami would have been in.

  • 46.1 Full outside off, Kuldeep plays it through covers for a run.

  • 44.5 OUT! Corker of a yorker and Shardul's cameo comes to an end. It is on off, Shardul looks to go downtown but misses. The off stump is rattled off the ground and 250 now looks very difficult. Third wicket for Starc and he has had a good day so far. Can he get a 5-fer?
  • 44.4 Fuller on off, Shami strokes it through covers for a single.
  • 44.3 Wide outside off, Shami swings his bat but misses.
  • 44.2 NOT OUT! Huge cheer from the crowd as after a brief delay the Ball Tracker rolls in and it shows that the ball is going down the leg side. Yorker on leg, Shami looks to flick but misses. The ball hits him on his shoes, a huge appeal follows and the umpire raises his finger. Shami has a word with Shardul and takes it upstairs. Replay rolls in and first Ultra Edge shows that there was no bat involved. After a small wait, the Ball Tracker comes and it shows that the ball was going down leg.
  • This time India have taken the review. Mohammed Shami is the man in question. Looks to be going down leg to the naked eye and yes, the replays confirm it.
  • 44.1 In the air...and dropped! Full toss on middle, Shardul looks to clear long on but miss hits it. It falls towards long on. Richardson comes running from there and puts in a dive. He gets both the hands to the ball but fails to bask it in. They take a single.
  • Mitchell Starc comes back into the attack. 8-0-34-2, his figures so far.

  • 43.3 On the pads, Shami glances it to the on side and gets off the mark.
  • Mohammed Shami comes in to bat now. The tail of India will have to bat well here to cross even the 250-run mark.
  • 43.2 OUT! Caught! The extra pace of Cummins has done the trick. But what has happened here? Cummins steams in and hits the deck hard. The ball rises onto Pant. He tries to pull but gets beaten for pace. He gets a top edge, the ball then hits the helmet and goes straight to Ashton Turner at point. The Australian players start celebrating, Cummins turns and looks at the umpire but he is unmoved. Pant looks to sneak a single but then the umpire raises his finger as the square leg umpire helps him out.
  • 43.1 On the pads, Shardul glances it to the leg side for a single.
  • Pat Cummins replaces Ashton Agar into the attack. 8-1-30-0 are his figures so far.

  • 42.4 Fuller on middle, Shardul pushes it to mid on.
  • 42.3 Length ball on off, Pant dabs it to third man for one.
  • 42.2 Wow! Shardul has come and smoked this through cover-point. Fuller on off, Thakur lofts it over cover-point. He times it very well but there is Starc in the deep so just a single.
  • Shardul Thakur is the new man in. Can he provide the flourish that the Indian innings needs along with Rishabh Pant?
  • 42.1 OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Jadeja departs and Richardson gets his first. Every time it looks like India are building momentum, one Australian bowler comes and breaks it with a wicket. Cross-seam delivery just outside off, Jadeja looks to run it down to third man. The ball is close to him to do so. He ends up getting a thick outside edge towards the keeper. Simple catch to Carey and the budding stand is broken.
  • 41.6 FOUR! Excellent way to end the over. Tossed up on leg, Pant once again comes down the track and whips it over covers for a boundary. Poor end for Agar. 13 off the over, Agar finishes with the figures of 10-1-56-1 from his 10. 213/5
  • 41.5 Darts one on the pads, Jadeja flicks it to the on side and gets a single.
  • 41.4 Another full toss but Jadeja cannot do much he looks to hit it hard but it goes straight to short mid-wicket.

  • 38.6 NOT OUT! Good running by the duo but good fielding by Richardson too. Length ball outside off, Jadeja opens the face of the bat and guides this one towards third man. Kane there runs to his right, gathers the ball and throws it towards the striker's end. He hits with a throw from the deep and the Australian players seem pretty confident that they have got Jadeja out. The umpire goes upstairs and the replays roll in to show that the Aussies are wrong and Jadeja is in. He is very quick and running him out will be a difficult task. 186/5

Good length ball outside off, it shapes away a bit, Shreyas looks to play it away from the body but all he does is get a thick outside edge to Carey behind the stumps.

  • 31.2 OUT! CAUGHT AND BOWLED! Adam Zampa has taken a very good catch to dismiss the Indian skipper. Flatter delivery on middle and off, Kohli looks to smash it back past Zampa but Adam takes a good reflex catch above his head a bit to his left.

  • 28.5 OUT! CAUGHT! Another wicket goes down and India looking in a bit of a trouble now. Length delivery on off, Dhawan looks to flick it but the ball holds on the surface and it goes off the leading edge towards the right of mid off. Ashton Agar from mid off runs to his right and dives but his foot gets stuck in the turf and that makes it difficult for him to hold onto the catch but he eventually does so.

  • 27.2 Kohli is off the mark straightaway. Floated on off, VK strokes it to long off for a single.
  • Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, walks out to bat now. It will be interesting to see how he will adjust to this role after a long time batting at no. 3 in ODI's.
  • 27.1 OUT! Caught! Rahul goes out against the run of play and Agar comes back and strikes on his very first ball of his new spell. Smart bowling by Agar. He bowls it slower through the air on off, Rahul decides to go after Ashton. He comes down the track and looks to hit it over cover but he does not get the elevation and ends up chipping it straight to Steven Smith there. The 121-run stand is broken and Australia now have a wicket to go with the tight run flow.

  • 25.6 Floated delivery on off, pushed towards cover for one. 129/1
  • 25.5 NOT OUT! That is as clear as crystal! Floated delivery on middle, Rahul looks to defend and does so near his boot. The ball bounces up and goes towards Carey. It hits his body and he goes to his right after the ball looped in that direction to take the catch. Carey appeals along with Zampa and after a chat with the leg umpire, the officials refer it upstairs with the soft signal being not out. Replays roll in and show that the ball has clearly bounced on the pitch before going to Carey who then gathered the ball. Play resumes in quick time!
  • Bump ball review taken upstairs. The soft signal is Not Out. The Australian players do not look confident and the reason is here. It is clearly a bump ball.

  • 6.5 Around the pads, Rahul flicks it to the on side but straight to the fielder.

Cummins turns and appeals but the umpire shakes his head. The Australian players gather and mull over a review and eventually go for it. Replays roll in and Ultra Edge shows no bat involved.

None left for the Australians now.
  • Review time as the Aussies have gone upstairs for an LBW appeal. Shikhar Dhawan is the man in question. The replays roll in and shows that the ball is pitching outside leg.

Zampa there runs to his right, dives forward but the ball falls just short of him. Adam puts in a good effort but to no avail and a single taken.
  • 4.6 FOUR! Rahul is off the mark, bad end to a very successful over. Starc steams in and bowls a pacy delivery but down the leg side, Rahul manages to flick it fine down the leg side and the outfield here in Mumbai is ultra quick so the ball dashes to the fence. A boundary spoils the over but Starc will be happy as he got the big fish, Rohit in this over. 17/1
  • 4.5 Outside off on a length, Rahul lets it carry to the keeper.
  • 4.4 Full on the stumps, Rahul starts his innings with a solid front foot defense.
  • KL Rahul replaces Rohit Sharma out in the middle.
  • 4.3 OUT! Caught! Stunned silence here in Wankhede as the local boy is walking back. A smart and gutsy delivery from Starc. It is full and outside off, cross-seam delivery. Rohit looks to drive it away from the body but he does so uppishly as the ball holds onto the pitch and he hits it from the lower half of his bat. The ball falls on its way to mid off. Warner there comes forward and takes a very good catch inches above the ground. Rohit cannot believe it. But he will have to walk back. Only the Aussie voices can be heard. Maybe the maiden over before this one built the pressure. Big and early wicket for the visitors.
  • 4.2 On the the stumps, RS blocks it with a dead bat.
  • 4.1 Lucky to escape that. It is full down the leg side, closer to the pads. Rohit looks to flick but misses. The ball kisses his pad and goes to the left of Carey who does well to stop that.
  • 3.6 This one swings back in but does so late on. It is on a length outside off, Dhawan is aware of his off pole and covers it and leaves it alone. Maiden from Cummins, a very good over as he was consistently good in this over with his lines and lengths. 13/0

  • 3.1 Swing and a miss. Fuller outside off, Dhawan looks to play his trademark slash on the off side but misses it. He would have been gutted had he edged that to the keeper.
  • 2.6 Short ball, first one from the Aussies in the 18 legal balls so far. Rohit hops and defends it to get through the over. Better over from Starc. 13/0
  • 2.5 Now bowls it on the pads, Dhawan looks to flick but misses. The ball rolls to the leg side off his thigh pad and they take a leg bye.
  • 2.4 Good length delivery around off, Dhawan taps it towards backward point. Starc getting his line and length right now. Starting to hit the deck hard here.

  • 1.5 WIDE! Cummins misses his line and sprays one down the leg side. Rohit looks to flick but misses.
  • 1.4 Beauty from Cummins! That was not far away from getting rid of the dangerous Rohit. It is full and around off, it seems to be coming in with the angle but swings away off the deck. Rohit looks to defend but gets squared up and it was just whiskers away from finding his outside edge.
  • 1.3 On the pads, Rohit glances it to mid-wicket.
  • 1.2 Dhawan is off the mark! Fuller on off, Dhawan looks to defend but it goes off the outer half of his bat towards third man for a single.
  • 1.1 Cummins starts with a good length ball on off, Dhawan looks to play it on the off side with a slant bat but the ball nips in a tad and finds the inside edge of Dhawan's bat. Luckily for the southpaw it goes onto hit the pad.
  • Pat Cummins to partner Mitchell Starc from the other end.
  • 0.6 Full around off, Rohit looks to defend but it goes off the inner half to the leg side. End of an eventful first over. 8/0
  • 0.5 FOUR! Easily done! Overpitched on off, Rohit just uses the pace of the ball and drives it right of the meat of the bat through covers for the second boundary of the over. Rohit looks in the mood today here in his home ground.
  • 0.4 Direct hit and it would have been curtains for Sharma. Good length ball outside off, Sharma drives it to the left of mid off. Watner there gets to the ball quickly. Rohit comes out for a quick single but Dhawan sends him back. Warner has a shy at the keeper's end but misses.
  • 0.3 Starc pulls his length back around off and it goes away with the angle. Rohit does not disturb that one.
  • 0.2 Starc goes full and closer to the off pole, Sharma pushes it towards mid off.
  • 0.1 FOUR! India are off to a cracking start! Starc starts with a warmup delivery. It is full and wide outside off, Rohit needs no time to set himself. He sees it overpitched and he drives it with all his class through covers for a boundary. The idea from Starc is right as he is trying to swing it back in from there but the margin of error is just too small.
  • Done and dusted with the national anthems. The Australian players are walking out on the field and are taking their respective positions. To a huge reception from the home crowd, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma stride out to open the innings for India. The latter will take the strike.

  • Earlier in the day, the Australian bowlers set up the win for the tourists as they bowled out India for a paltry score of 255 on a batting pitch. No one apart from Dhawan and Rahul got going for India. The Australian bowlers were on top and the pace bowling trio of Starc, Cummins and Richardson grabbed 7 wickets amongst them with the former picking up 3 and the latter two sharing 4 wickets equally between themselves.
  • It was a day to forget for India. First with the bat and then with the ball. The bowlers had a sub-par total to defend but the way the Australian openers took the attack to them was something that we have not seen for a long, long time. 5 bowlers played the game and none of them had anything to smile about. Only the spinners went for less than 6 runs per over but that was because the Australian openers never had to go after them. Shami, Thakur and Bumrah they all went for over 7 rpo. A nightmare of a day for the Indian bowlers and they will like to forget this as quickly as possible.
