IND vs AUS: After winning the toss, Aaron Finch asked India to bat first and the hosts replied in fine fashion. Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli slammed the fifties as India finished with a mammoth score of 340/6 from their quota of 50 overs. Australia will look to show the form they did in the previous match and take the series with one game to spare in the three-match series but batting second and chasing a big total doesn't have much of a success at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium. Here, you can get the ball to ball updates from the second IND vs AUS ODI at the SCA Stadium in Rajkot.STREAM IND vs AUS| SCORECARD
