  • That's all for today. Series square at 1-1. Thank you for giving us company during the second ODI, we hope it was worth your time and we look forward to see you again on Friday for the decider which will be played at the MCG. Until then, see ya!

  • Virat Kohli, Indian captain and Player of the Match: Very pleased. We want to restrict them in the end. Getting Maxi and Shaun in two was a big breakthrough. Bhuvi was outstanding with the ball. He got the whole team back into the game. Vijay Shankar is in. He is an all-rounder but when you win, you don't want to change things. But we will have a look before the 3rd ODI. You try to get into zone while you're chasing. You look for little moments to pump you up, get into the zone, and that's what I was trying to do. I tried to stay as aware as possible in recognising the moment to strike. I thought those 2-3 overs were the moment, to bring the gap between runs and balls down.  When it comes off it looks nice, when it doesn't it doesn't. A well it was really tough day. A good day's rest. A good day's travel. When you haven't played too much cricket you take time to get back in the groove. Hats off to him and Dinesh as well. Tonight was special for both of us.

    Most centuries in winning causes in ODI cricket:

    33 - Sachin Tendulkar

    32 - VIRAT KOHLI*

    25 - Ricky Ponting

  • Aaron Finch, Australia captain: I thought we hung in there really well. When Dhoni's there, you know how well he times his innings. Credit to India, they played well. We played well as well. There's been some real solid performances through the middle overs. The powerplays we need to get right. It's always tough when you're not getting runs, but batting's separate from captaincy. (On Marsh's 131) It was a hell of an innings. The way he hung in there. It all clicked. To get 131 in brutal conditions, and for us to get 298 was really pleasing. I think it would've been nice to have Jhye bowl right at the end. There are a lot of positives for us. Hopefully we can get the job done at the MCG (which he refers to as the 'Home of Cricket' over Lord's).

    DID YOU KNOW?

    The last time before today (101.85) when MS Dhoni had a SR of 100-plus while chasing in an ODI match was against Australia at Sydney (100.00) in 2015.

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    India successfully chased down a target of 299 today

    - Second highest at Adelaide in ODIs

    - Second highest for India against Australia in Australia in ODIs

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist at Adelaide

    Second fifty in two matches for Dhoni as he finished the game to turn the clocks back. What a knock it has been and some clever manouvering with running between the wickets as India level the series with four balls to spare. We go to Melbourne 1-1. 

  • Dhoni 's grey worth gold

  • India win by six wickets to square series 1-1 at Adelaide.

    After 49.2 overs,India 299/4 ( MS Dhoni (W) 55 , Dinesh Karthik 25)


    MS Dhoni bunts the second ball off the final over to mid on and hares for a quick single. The fielder misses the direct-hit and MSD makes his ground and seals the second ODI. Kohli's masterful century with Dhoni and Karthik adding the finishing touches with an unbeaten 34-ball 57 run partnership.

    Rohit and Dhawan also played their parts at the top of the order. However, Rayudu struggled to get going, something India would want to focus on and correct in the upcoming 11 games before the World Cup.

    Australia tried their best with the ball after Shaun Marsh's efforts saw them post a competitive 299, but Kohli was simply no match to the Australian bowlers and veteran MSD ensuring no hiccups after the captain fell. DK providing the much-needed impetus. All to play for at the 'G' in the final game of this long and adrous tour.

  • FIFTY! MS Dhoni levels the score with a six over long on! He is getting India home today!

  • After 49 overs,India 292/4 ( MS Dhoni (W) 48 , Dinesh Karthik 25)

    MS Dhoni receives some attention from the medics before the start of the 49th over. They continue to deal in singles, doubles and a triple as India close in. Karthik laps it to fine leg for three. Dhoni scampers back and then takes a moment to catch his breath. Dhoni swings to long on for a single. Nine taken off the over. India need 7 off the final six balls. MSD on 48.

  • After 48 overs,India 283/4 ( MS Dhoni (W) 45 , Dinesh Karthik 19)

    India continue to take this deep. Behrendorff'S over yields nine more runs including a three to fine leg. Karthik ends the over with a couple to midwicket. More 16 needed off 12 balls.

    A replay showed that Dhoni simply wandered off without grounding his bat off the last ball of Lyon's spell thereby not completing the run, technically. He signalled the umpire for a towel to wipe his face but the umpire seemed to have missed the batsman not making his ground.

  • After 47 overs,India 274/4 ( MS Dhoni (W) 40 , Dinesh Karthik 15)

    Dhoni and DK are in now real hurry. Just going about the required rate. A boundary, few singles and a double, making sure that India are just about meeting their target. No fancy stuff. India need 25 off 18 balls.

  • FOUR! Poor delivery from Stoinis. A half-tracker at his pace is nothing but a 'hit me' delivery. Karthik dispatches it for a second boundary to long leg fence

  • After 46 overs,India 265/4 ( MS Dhoni (W) 39 , Dinesh Karthik 7)

    Richardson runs in to bowl his final over. DK's boundary along with a slew of singles see India take 10 runs. He ends with figures of 10-0-59-1. Visitors now require 34 off 24.

  • FOUR! Short ball and that has been pulled away superbly by Dinesh Karthik. Well controlled four to backward square leg fence.

  • After 45 overs,India 255/4 ( MS Dhoni (W) 37 , Dinesh Karthik 1)

    Lyon's last over goes for 11. Dhoni frees his arms with a six, which should do a world of good to him. Karthik can take off from the word go. Match still in India's control, 44 needed off 30 balls. Lyon finishes with 59 off his 10 overs for no wickets.

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist at Adelaide

    Kohli gone. Game on here. Clever firld placement in the deep and he holes out. Onus now on Dhoni to take India home. Middle order in focus again.. 

  • SIX! MSD skips down the wicket and BANG! Clobbers Lyon over wide long on for his first boundary of his innings

  • Lyon comes on to bowl his final over

  • After 44 overs,India 244/4 ( MS Dhoni (W) 26 , Dinesh Karthik 1)

    What a massive over in the context of the match, perhaps series. Kohli has brought India to the brink. Now upto MS and DK to see India home. Six runs off Richardson's penultimate over. India require 55 runs off 36 balls, just a shade over 9 runs an over.

  • OUT! Would you believe it! Virat Kohli has hit it straight to the fielder in the deep. He has picked out Glenn Maxwell as well. The game has opened up once again. Richardson has Kohli twice in two games. Kohli simply flicked it to mid wicket boundary and he timed it so sweetly it went straight down Maxwell's throat.

    Kohli c Maxwell b J Richardson 104(112)

  • A big finish beckons. Intriguing passage of play awaits us in the last seven overs. Meanwhile, I think there has to be a petition for having a bust or mural of Virat Kohli besides Sir Don Bradman at the Adelaide Oval. Who would like to take the honours of starting one? Kohli is refreshed and recharged ready to finish things off. Jhye Richardson along with Finch plot ways to deny him.

  • After 43 overs,India 238/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 103 , MS Dhoni (W) 22)

    Kohli punches the air and then points to the dressing room as if to say, 'Didn't I tell you, I will score?'. To be honest Virat, we all knew. Kohli missed out in the Test series to score a century at Adelaide, his tryst with the ground is ceaseless. Some terrific bit of running between these two continues as they steal those extra runs. Kohli chips one to long on for a single. India need 61 off 42 balls. Virat takes off his helmet and gloves and starts jogging towards the dressing room, perhaps a loo break.

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist at Adelaide

    39th ODI hundred for Kohli. And another at Adelaide Oval. He will have a stand at this ground some day. Has to, right? 

  • HUNDRED! Virat Kohli's legend continues to swell. The chase master is at it once again. Captain fantastic! India's tailsman. Tremendous knock by the Indian captain as he rattles off his 39th ODI hundred. He is galloping towards Sachin Tendulkar's 49. Would you believe it, he is just 10 tons away. WOW! Another special innings from VK, well-paced, beautifully compiled with a perfect mix of cautioun and aggression. However his job is yet not done. Gets to his milestone with a couple on the onside.

  • After 42 overs,India 228/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 99 , MS Dhoni (W) 17)

    Kohli and the whole of India must have had their heart up their mouths as the Indian captain miscues a big swing, gets a leading edge to third man as he was targetting long on fence. It goes on the bounce and India breathe again. A single off the final ball sees Kohli move on 99. Need 71 more in 48 deliveries.

  • After 41 overs,India 224/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 97 , MS Dhoni (W) 16)

    Siddle comes back into the attack. Chance for Australia as Dhoni charges down the wicket and Siddle responds by banging in short, Dhoni goes for the hook and the ball almost carried to deep backward square leg fielder, but believe Jason Behrendorff was slightly slow off the blocks and hence the ball falls just short. Handscomb makes Kohli earn his runs with some nifty work at the sweeper boundary. Siddle attempts another bouncer but is called wide for height. Kohli edges, perhaps one of rare mistakes he has done today, but goes on couple of bounces to short third man. India require 75 off 48 balls.

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist at Adelaide

    10 overs remaining. India need 83 runs. Australia scored 93. 

  • After 40 overs,India 216/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 95 , MS Dhoni (W) 12)

    Only a single off Stoinis' over that finishes with the bowler taking a shy at the striker's end after Dhoni bunted one back to the bowler. No harm done. Kohli and Co need 83 off the final ten overs.

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist at Adelaide

    Not sure anyone pairs up better in running between wickets than Dhoni and Kohli. Key here for India is when they decide to launch all out. Difference is still of 20-odd between balls remaining and runs needed. 

  • After 39 overs,India 215/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 94 , MS Dhoni (W) 12)

    Richardson is back into the attack. No boundaries in the over but a couple of doubles ensure India don't eat up too many deliveries. Dhoni continues to play the second fiddle. India need 84 off 66.

  • After 38 overs,India 209/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 91 , MS Dhoni (W) 9)

    Half-shout for a leg before against Kohli as Stoinis bowls the incutter into Kohli's thigh pad. Virat ends the over with a much-needed boundary. More 90 required off 72 balls. Kohli is into the nineties!!

  • FOUR! Short and wide outside off and Kohli gets on top off it and places it past point for a boundary. A cry of 'COME ON' from Kohli.

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist at Adelaide

    Those two sixes caressed. Pure timing from Kohli. Different class altogether, but you know that already. 

  • After 37 overs,India 203/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 86 , MS Dhoni (W) 8)

    For all the tidy overs Lyon bowled upfront. He recieves some stick as he bowls in the final third of the innings. Couple of braces after the six off the first ball, helps Kohli add 11 more to India's total as they go past the 200-run mark. Need 96 runs off 78 balls.

  • SIX! Kohli dances down the pitch and goes downtown. That is beautifully done by Kohli. Hits it through the line. Clean strike over the straight boundary

  • After 36 overs,India 192/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 75 , MS Dhoni (W) 8)

    Not too much pace from Stoinis to work with so the two Kohli and Dhoni get running to muster five runs off the over.

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance Cricket Journalist at Adelaide

    Kohli in a bid to change momentum of innings here, but he alone cannot do it. Dhoni at the other end is still taking his time. Let's not talk about strike rate just yet though. 

  • After 35 overs,India 187/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 74 , MS Dhoni (W) 6)

    Kohli has started to open. He is pacing the chase beautifully here. Three singles and boundary off Lyon's over. Visitors require 112 off the last 15 overs

  • FOUR! Deft glide past the keeper from the Indian captain off Lyon to collect another boundary. Purposely delayed the shot as he uses the pace to earn four more.

  • After 34 overs,India 180/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 68 , MS Dhoni (W) 5)

    Another Kohli chase masterclass on the cards? A welcome boundary followed by a six to take 14 off Behrendorff's over. The crowd has come alive and Kohli is started to change gears.

  • SIX! Kohli gets enough it. Pumps the whip over long on for a six. Was the length ball on the stumps and Kohli has decided to blast it. Safe shot with the fielder in the ring.

  • FOUR! Welcome boundary for Kohli and India. Too short by Behrendorff and VK flat bats it past cover, has enough on it to beat the diving fielder in the deep. He is pumped.

  • After 33 overs,India 166/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 55 , MS Dhoni (W) 4)

    Maxwell continues, he comes on to bowl his fourth over. Lines up five dots as MSD keeping the square leg fielder busy. A single off the final ball on the off side. Asking rate now closing in on eight runs an over.

  • After 32 overs,India 165/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 55 , MS Dhoni (W) 3)

    A slip in place for new man. Dhoni cuts it to deep backward point to take a couple to open his account. Few dots follow before Dhoni tucks it around to fine leg to retain strike for the next over. India need 134 off 108 balls.

  • Behrendorff is back on

  • After 31 overs,India 161/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 54 , MS Dhoni (W) 0)

    Couple of cute little taps on either side of the wicket-keeper from Virat Kohli to stroke past his half-century. Rayudu's misery comes to an end and in walks MS Dhoni at number five. Required rate is 7.3 Six runs off Maxwell's over.

The second India vs Australia ODI is being telecast on Sony Sports Network. The Australia-India live streaming will take place on sonyliv.com. Click here to know when and where to watch the second ODI between Australia and India.

Preview, 2nd ODI: India lost the first ODI by 34 runs and they would be itching to stage a comeback at the Adelaide Oval. There were some good performances including that of Rohit Sharma who blasted his career's 22nd ton but other batters did not really raise their game. India may consider some changes in the playing XI with Vijay Shankar and Shubman Gill being flown to Australia.

India will also be tempted to field Kedar Jadhav in place of Rayudu, who was on Saturday reported for suspect bowling action. Jadhav's inclusion will not only bolster the middle order batting but his part-time round-arm off spin has helped in breaking partnerships.

All-rounder Vijay Shankar, who was named as a replacement for the suspended Hardik Pandya, may also be included in place of off-colour Karthik.

The bowling unit was satisfactory in Sydney and Kohli isn't expected to tinker with the combination much on Tuesday.

However, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja may be dropped from the Playing XI after failing to impress in both the departments and in that case, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal will be included.

On the other hand, after losing the Test series 1-2, Australia will aim to seal the ODI series in Adelaide.

The Kangaroos, however, didn't announce their playing eleven for the second ODI, and are expected that to go in with the same team as in the first match.

The hosts will bank on another collective effort from the top order comprising Alex Carey, Peter Handscomb, Usman Khawaja, Glenn Maxwell and Shaun Marsh while also hoping for skipper Aaron Finch to come out of a recent slump in form.

The relatively inexperienced bowling unit comprising Jhye Richardson and Jason Behrendorff impressed in the first ODI with the pace duo sharing six wickets between them while veteran Peter Siddle and off-spinner Nathan Lyon will be expected to support the rookies.

Teams:

India: Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (WK), Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Vijay Shankar.

Australia: Aaron Finch (Captain), Jason Behrendorff, Alex Carey (WK), Peter Handscomb, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Mitch Marsh, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Peter Siddle, Billy Stanlake, Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Turner, Adam Zampa.
