After comfortably chasing down 277 to win the first match of the ongoing three-match ODI series in Mohali against Australia India would now look to claim the series in Indore where the two sides will lock horns in the 2nd ODI on Sunday, September 24. India will against head into the contest without the services of regular captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Hardik Pandya among others as they will join the team in the third ODI in Rajkot.
Hence, a lot will ride on the stand-in skipper KL Rahul as to how he leads his troops on the field. Rahul was brilliant with the bat during the run chase in the first game and helped the Men in Blue scale the target with aplomb at the end. He scored 58* off 63 balls and looked in complete control throughout the course of his innings. However, he still won't be happy with his work behind the stumps as he struggled a bit while keeping wickets in the first fixture and it seems that there is still room for improvement.
For Australia, it all went pear-shaped after they lost David Warner and Steve Smith in quick succession. On a wicket that didn't really have any demons in it as such, the Aussie batters failed to get big individual scores and got out after getting their eyes in. The challenge for their batting order will be to fix the same and display a scintillating effort in Indore.
