India and Australia are currently playing a three-match one-day international series, and after winning the first two games, India has comfortably won the series. With the ODI World Cup 2023 rapidly approaching, the victory would do a lot to boost their confidence. India delivered an outstanding performance in the second ODI, winning by a score of 99 runs in a game plagued by rain. The fact that veteran Australian opener David Warner batted right-handed against Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, though, was one of the game’s most talked-about moments.
Warner looked comfortable at the crease as he amassed 53 runs off of 39 deliveries. He intended to bat right-handed against Ashwin. But the same resulted in his death, as he was fired shortly after. In a similar spirit, Australian speedster Sean Abbott spoke up to offer an intriguing perspective on Warner’s right-handed batting in a high-stakes game. According to Abbott, in an effort to disrupt Ashwin’s routine, he experimented because the Southpaw plays golf right-handed.
Australia lost the ODI series against India and the second match by a wide margin.
Speaking of the match, the visitors found it challenging as Australia was unable to chase down a revised target of 317 runs in 33 overs due to rain. It was clear that the Australians were under pressure from the run rate because they were consistently losing wickets. Mohammed was one of the best bowlers. Shami’s devastating bowling performance shook the Australian batting lineup.
India won the match by 99 runs, allowing the hosts to win the series. They will now look to complete a sweep in the final ODI. Australia and the hosts will now square off in Rajkot on September 27 for the series’ finale and third ODI.
