India conceded a 0-2 lead to Australia after losing the second ODI against Australia by seven wickets with six balls to spare at Brisbane on Friday. The 'Men-in-Blue' are just a defeat away from conceding yet another series defeat in Australia, with the third one-dayer set to take place at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday, January 17. India posted another 300-plus total thanks to yet another century by Rohit Sharma (124), as well as half-centuries from Ajinkya Rahane (89) and Virat Kohli (59), with the visitors finishing on 308 for eight after 50 overs. However, the Australian top-order prevailed once again against the under performing Indian attack, with as many as three of the top four batsmen posting half-centuries. India failed to win a single match in their tour of Australia last year, and chances of them repeating it in the current tour are very high following the latest result.
India lost the wicket of Shikhar Dhawan early in the innings once again, before Rohit and Kohli came to the rescue of the hosts with another strong batting response. The visitors appeared poised for a score well beyond 320 until skipper MS Dhoni's dismissal with 276 on the board at the end of the 46th over changed the course. India lost their last four wickets for just 10 runs thanks to some irresponsible batting and running between the wickets in the closing stages of the innings.
Rohit starred with a brilliant unbeaten 171 in the first ODI to guide India to 309 for three, and the tourists were in the driver's seat after debutant Barinder Sran took two early wickets to remove the two openers for single-digit scores. Captain Steven Smith and George Bailey however, took the game away from the Indians with their partnership that was ultimately worth 242, with both batsmen posting centuries.
