21:59 (IST)

Alright, that also brings an end to our coverage tonight. India come back strongly as expected from a solid ODI unit. Dhawan, Kohli and Rahul produced solid knocks, although none could go on and complete a ton. In fact, one of the rare occasions, when no one from either side completed a ton, on a day when 644 runs were scored by both the teams collectively. Smith played well but missed out on a ton as well earlier. India have made it 1-1. Now, the series moves to Bengaluru where the third and deciding ODI will be played on 19 January. So, do join us on the 19th for over by over updates of the match. Till then, good bye and good night. 

21:55 (IST)

KL Rahul, Player of the Match: Couldn't have asked for a better start. Each day I have been thrown a different responsibility and I am enjoying it. Batting at 5 you know how the wicket is playing. Once I hit a few balls, it becomes only bat and ball, other things in your mind phases out. Kuldeep said the same thing to me. It is something I have grown up doing, past couple of months I have been keeping well for Karanataka as well. Hopefully I can keep my spinners and fast bowlers happy.

21:52 (IST)

Virat Kohli, India captain:

We live in the age of social media and panic button was pushed over my batting slot. KL's knock showed maturity and class. We know what we are doing in the change room, outside, it was all panic. He (Dhawan) was short of runs in T20s and then got injured. He has been one of the most consistent performers for us in ODIs. Very happy he is playing well. Revelation for me was KL batting at 5. It is the left shoulder which is hurting but there is no tear or anything. Nothing serious really. All three pacers executed the plan very well. All in all, a very balanced performance as well. He kept really well in the last game as well. If he keeps like that, it opens up a lot of option for us. 

21:52 (IST)

Aaron Finch, Australia captain: They played very well. We were always one wicket short of containing them and where we wanted to me. Zampa is bowling really well at the moment. I thought Smith batted well, though not quite going through in the end. Marns was in his first ODI. They are (long lost brothers) they spend every minute of the day together. You just have to make sure that when you get in, you capitalize and go really big. We were just slight behind as the run rate kept going up.

21:36 (IST)

Kuldeep Yadav: It has been tough four-five months for me but now I am bowling well. It was difficult to contain runs when Marnus and Steve were batting. I found that wicket was a little slow so tossed the ball. I am finding good areas to bowl. 

21:33 (IST)

India win by 36 runs!

Bumrah runs in, bowls a bouncer, Zampa wanted to cut it but ended up edging it to Rahul behind the stumps. India make it 1-1 in the series with this win. Finally a wicket for Bumrah as well. He has bowled superbly. 

21:31 (IST)

After 49 overs,Australia 304/9 ( Kane Richardson 24 , Adam Zampa 6)

Shami has leaked 19 runs in the over which is a very poor show at this stage of the game. Mere formality left as Australia need 37 off the last over.

21:30 (IST)
four

FOUR! Richardson now hits Shami over the mid off fielder for four runs. 19 off the over.

21:30 (IST)
six

SIX! Richardson goes deep into the crease, comes in line of the ball and hits the ball for six runs. 

21:29 (IST)
four

FOUR! And now more frustration for Shami as Richardson hits him for four runs down the ground.

India vs Australia 2nd ODI Live Updates:  India win by 36 runs!

Preview: Australia started off their India tour in style with a thumping 10-wicket win over the hosts at the Wankhede. David Warner and Aaron Finch left the Indians stunned as they chased down the 256-run target with ease shattering records en route.

The action now moves to Rajkot for the 2nd ODI and India would be looking to bounce back hard. It was Australia's meticulous bowling plan that undid the Indian batting line-up. It was also a lack of batting plan from the Indian camp that brought about their downfall. Defending a below-par score at Wankhede, the bowlers didn't show any semblance of a fight and ended up wicketless as Finch and Warner piled up a 258-run opening stand, the highest for any wicket against India.

The experiment of playing three openers didn't work and that is something which Kohli admitted that he would have a rethink about. Should they got with the theory that your best batsman should bat as higher up the order as possible?

"(On batting at 4) We've had this discussion many times in the past as well. Because of the way KL (Rahul) has been batting, we have tried to fit him in the batting line-up. But I don't think it's gone quite our way whenever I batted at four so probably will have to rethink about that one," Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

"It's about giving some guys opportunities. Every now and then, it's about putting people up there and testing them. People need to relax and not panic with one game. I am allowed to experiment a little bit and fail at times. Today was one of the days it didn't come off," he added.

Kohli would also be hoping for a much-improved bowling display. There are chances that Navdeep Saini might get a look in, in place of Shardul Thakur who had a rough day in Mumbai. Rajkot traditionally produces good batting tracks and with the kind of form the Aussie batsmen are in, the Indian bowlers might again be in for a tough time.

Australia wouldn't be looking to tinker too much with the winning combination. They have been in brilliant form in all formats and would look to continue the momentum and seal the series in Rajkot.

India vs Australia: Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur shine, but hosts set challenging target of 328 for visitors

The target is a tricky one and the Indian batsmen would get a fair idea of whether to go for it by lunch on the final day, which is Tuesday. This was after Siraj and Thakur combined to share nine wickets while dismissing Australia for 294 in their second innings.

India vs Australia, Full Cricket Score, 4th Test at Brisbane, Day 5, Highlights: Pant masterclass guides visitors to memorable series win

What a tour this has been! To bounce back after MCG’s horror 36-all out, draw the Sydney Test and win at Gabba, Australia’s fortress, just shows the character of this team. And India were without Kohli, Bumrah, Shami, Ashwin, Jadeja. Still, to win by a 2-1 scoreline in Australia’s backyard teaches you a lesson – never write off this new-age Indian cricket team. India have plenty of reserves, each individual hungry to prove his mettle. In that respect, as Harsha Bhogle said, due credit must be given to the "finishing school that Rahul Dravid is." That’s it from us today. We hope you enjoyed our coverage of India’s Australia tour. This is Sameer Chhabra and Shubham Pandey signing off. Adios.

India vs Australia Highlights, 3rd Test at SCG, Day 5, Full Cricket Score: Ashwin, Vihari's resilience helps visitors draw game

After five days of intense Test cricket, the two teams cannot be separated as India pull off something similar to a heist, if the term can be applied in the context of a draw. Five days of facing Smith and Labuschagne’s brilliance with the bat, the pace trio and Lyon bowling as sharply as ever and some hostilities from the crowd, in addition to the spate of injuries and the absence of their talismanic regular captain. If the Gill-Rohit opening stand gave the early impetus, it was the surreal counter-attack by Pant and Pujara that truly turned things around today, with Vihari and Ashwin’s stonewalling efforts in the end while battling physical discomfort the cherry on the cake.India will look to carry the momentum over to the Gabba, a venue that is considered Australia’s fortress, with the series still level 1-1. Given the way Rahane and Co have fought back after the 36 all out debacle, they’ll certainly hope to end the tour on a high. For now, it’s time for me to sign off on behalf of my colleague Shubham!
