Our correspondent, V.S. Aravind, reports from Hyderabad

Adam Zampa's double blow has dented India's chase as the leg-spinner has removed Virat Kohli and then Ambati Rayudu. Nathan Coulter-Nile too delivered a telling blow as he dismissed Rohit Sharma. The set batsmen are back in the hut and the onus is now on MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav to see India home. A couple of more wickets will put Australia on top but a partnership in this crucial passage of play will see India gaining back control. The 100 is up for India and it needs another 137 with six wickets in hand.

7.23 pm: WICKET! Zampa removes Rayudu. The ball had a bit of turn and bounce, caught by Carey.

Ambati Rayudu c Carey b Zampa 99/4 (23.3 overs)

7.15 pm: The chase master is out in the middle — M.S. Dhoni.

7.10 pm: WICKET! This is a massive breakthrough for Australia. Rohit Sharma is out.

Coulter-Nile keeps it short, finds the leading edge of Rohit's bat; Finch doesn't miss many.

Rohit Sharma c Finch b Coulter-Nile 37 off 66 (5x4)

7.05 pm: Ambati Rayudu is out in the middle. He has had a decent run with Team India in New Zealand. The 90 in Wellington was a good knock to take the team home.

6.53 pm: WICKET! Zampa traps Kohli in front of his stumps. It was a quicker googly that took the Indian captain by surprise.

V Kohli lbw b Zampa 44 off 45 (4x6, 6x1); IND 80/2 (17.0)

6.48 pm: India looking steady at the moment. After 16 overs, 70/1.

6.40 pm: Kohli has continued his great run in 2019 too.

Here's looking at his 2019 records

Runs 301

100s: 1

Average: 50.16

6.32 pm: In other news, the broadcasters are flashing the massive attendance tonight — 35,786 people in the house.

6.26 pm: Behrendorff gets the treatment now. Kohli whacks it down the ground.

After 11 overs, IND 48/1

R Sharma 24 off 37 (4x5)

V Kohli 22 off 28 (4x3, 6x1)

6.21 pm: SIX! Cummins pitches it short, Kohli pulls and finds the fence. First six for India.

6.03 pm: Brilliant bottom-hand flick by Kohli to find a boundary off Coulter-Nile. Most of Kohli's runs against fast bowlers have come off the artsy flick. INDIA 18/1 (5.3)

5.55 pm: Rohit looks in great touch, as usual. This has been his season.

Here's looking at his ODI records in 2019

Runs: 354

100s: 1

50s: 2

6s: 13

Average: 44.25

5.47 pm: WICKET! Nathan Coulter-Nile strikes first ball. Shikhar Dhawan slices the ball at point, finds Maxwell. India lose first wicket.

Dhawan c Maxwell b Coulter-Nile 0 (1); IND 4/1 (1.1)

5.43 pm: Rohit Sharma starts off with a boundary in the first ball.

Kuldeep post first innings: "The first 10 overs were crucial. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami bowled really well. I am coming back after a break, so it took time to get back into rhythm. The wicket is slow, so I wanted to mix-up my slower. The wicket of Handscomb was special."

Australia innings

Our correspondent V.S. Aravind reports from Hyderabad

Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav shared six wickets among themselves as India restricted Australia for 236/7 in Hyderabad. It was a clinical bowling execution from the home side after Australia asked India to bowl first. Usman Khawaja was the top-scorer for Australia with a 76-ball 50 and Glenn Maxwell contributed with a 51-ball 40 as the rest found it difficult to score on a relatively dry surface. India needs 237 runs to take a 1-0 series lead.

4.59 pm: Australia finishes at 236/7; Carey remains not out on 36.

4.54 pm: Back-to-back boundaries for Carey, Australia moves to 234/6.

4.50 pm: Fifty-run partnership comes up between Carey and Coulter-Nile; AUS 225/6 (48.5)

4.42 pm: Three overs to go; Carey and Coulter-Nile are having a go at everything. Bumrah will bowl the 48th.

4:29 pm: A top spell from Kuldeep Yadav comes to an end, with figures of 2 for 46. Australia 192/6 in 44 overs.

4:13 pm: OUT. Shami strikes again and this time with the big wicket of Glenn Maxwell for 40. A length ball and Maxwell plays it early across the line, to see his off-stump knocked back. Australia six down.

4.03 pm: WICKET| A slower off-cutter beats Turner who wanted to slog across the line; beautifully bowled by Shami.

Turner departs for 21 off 23 (4x1, 6x1); AUS 169/5 (37.5)


Ashton Turner is not really new to the Indian conditions. Six years ago, Turner was part of the Perth Scorchers side, captained by Simon Katich, that was in India for the Champions League Twenty20. Jason Behrendorf was part of the same side. Turner’s professional T20 debut for Scorchers in CLT20, which was against Highveld Lions, was however abandoned.

4.01 pm: Turner is playing a good hand, batting on 21 off 23, and supporting senior pro Maxwell. The right-hand batsman had failed to make a mark in the T20Is; this innings will give him some confidence going into the remaining games. And while I write this, Shami runs through his gate.

3.35 pm: WICKET! Flight in the air, Handscomb — notably the best player of spin in the Australia side — steps out and misses; stumped by Dhoni.

Our correspondent V.S. Aravind reports from Hyderabad

Kuldeep Yadav strikes and breaks a steady stand as he removes the well-set Peter Handscomb. The batsman dances down the track only to be lured as the ball goes past through the gap and MS Dhoni as usual whips off the bails. India has taken two quick wickets but Glenn Maxwell holds fort for Australia. A crucial phase in the game as debutant Ashton Turner walks in. Ravindra Jadeja into the attack as he replaces Jasprit Bumrah.



Maxwell’s last ODI fifty (62) came against England in June 2018. It’s been quite a while, but he has been getting the 30 and 40-odd runs on a regular basis. However, Kuldeep will remain Kohli’s go-to bowler if India has to dismiss Maxwell before he starts cutting it loose.


Handscomb departs for 19 off 30 (4x1); AUS 137/4 (31.2)

3.20 pm: Kohli brings on his strike bowler Bumrah against Maxwell... and it nearly works! He gets an edge of Maxwell and it goes in between Dhoni and second slip Rohit Sharma.

Indian spinners have tightened the screws here. Last 5 overs have yielded only 16 runs for the loss of two wickets.

3.09 pm: WICKET! Khawaja throws away a good start. Khawaja comes down the track and chips it down to deep mid-wicket to Vijay Shankar, who mkaes good ground to take a superb catch! The Aussie departs for 50. T20 centurion from Bangalore Glenn Maxwell joins Handscomb.

2.57 pm: WICKET! Kedhar Jadhav does it again! Stoinis smacks a long hop straight to Kohli at mid-wicket! He hit that fiercely and the momentum of the shot took Kohli off his feet. Good grab by the skipper. Peter Handscomb is the new man in.

Team India is debuting its new kit in the Hyderabad ODI.


2.50 pm: Jadhav and India appeals for a bump-ball catch of Stoinis. TV replays confirms the doubt. Not out.

2.39 pm: Spin from both ends now. Jadeja and Kedhar Jadhav, who Simon Doull describes as 'right-arm all sorts', are bowling in tandem. Can Jadhav work his magic for Kohli?

2.28 pm: Twenty-six runs in the last four overs for Australia, taking it to 49 for one after 12 overs. Usman Khawaja looking to assert himself more and more, while Marcus Stoinis continues to play the sheet anchor. The left-hander hit Kuldeep Yadav for a six in his first over and, at the other end, Vijay Shankar is offering boundary balls that Stoinis, in particular, has taken full advantage of.

2.10 pm: Australia is 23 for one after eight overs. Usman Khawaja is trying to open up and transfer the pressure onto the Indian new-ball bowlers. After a couple of quiet overs, he struck Jasprit Bumrah for a couple of fours — one through extra-cover and another through point — to get the innings going. The first bowling change for India, with Vijay Shankar coming into the attack.

1.56 pm: Australia is 13 for one after five overs. Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah are in great rhythm and Marcus Stoinis and Usman Khawaja have been cautious after the loss of Aaron Finch.

1.36 pm: WICKET! No landmark innings from Finch. Bumrah with a ripper to the Aussie skipper of just his third ball, takes the outside edge to Dhoni!

1.30 pm: Mohammed Shami begins proceedings for India with the ball against Usman Khawaja.

Australia skipper Aaron Finch is playing in his 100th ODI. Fortunately for him, there is no Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who dismissed him three times out of three down under, in India's ranks to spoil his party early on. A Finch special to start the series?
