India and Australia will look to battle it out in the 2nd ODI of the series at Andhra Pradesh.
Having won yesterday by 5 wickets, India will look to dominate in the 2nd ODI as well.
Moreover, Rohit Sharma will be back for this game and will lead the team with Pandya remaining his deputy.
On the other hand, Australia also will look to get a win in tomorrow’s game to level the series and make it a thrilling contest for the fans.
Meanwhile, in the first ODI, India’s batters struggled to score a small target of 189 as the middle order completely collapsed.
But, thanks to KL Rahul’s gritty fifty and good support from Jadeja at the other end, India managed to cross the finish line.
Thus, it will be a test for the middle-order once again to perform well in tomorrow’s game.
For Australia, only Mitchell Marsh was the standout player with the rest going for low scores.
Therefore, we have a thrilling game tomorrow between these two teams and we can definitely expect it to be a high-scoring one.
