Welcome to Sportstar’s HIGHLIGHTS from the second ODI between India and Australia in Visakhapatnam.


March 19, 2023 17:59
Mitchell Starc - Player of the Match

I guess I’ve learnt to go through the stages. I feel my rhythm has been good for a while now. I got the ball to shape and got a little bit off the surface as well.

March 19, 2023 17:58
Steve Smith after the win

It was a quick one. Just 37 overs. I think our bowlers did really well. Mitchell Starc in particular. Swinging the ball early on. Complemented well by the others.

I did not know the wicket. How much it was going to swing. (Did not have) a particular total in mind and just (wanted to) put pressure in the Indians.

March 19, 2023 17:53
Rohit Sharma on the poor performance tonight

Obviously disappointing. We did not play upto our potential. We didn’t apply ourselves with the bat. Did not get enough runs on the board. It was not a 117 runs pitch. At crucial junctions we kept losing wickets.

On Starc - Quality bowler. He has been doing it for years, he kept bowling to his strength and we kept falling to it. He was briliiant. He swung the new ball and got the odd ball going away. Kept us guessing throughout.

On Marsh - Probably one of the top players in terms of power. He can stand and deliver and back himself. Even in the first match. We have seen him do that over the years.

A day to forget for India

IND vs AUS: India suffers biggest ODI defeat as Australia chases 118-run target in 11 overs in Vizag

March 19, 2023 17:31
A thumping win for Australia

Steve Smith’s men record the biggest win in India in terms of deliveries to spare. Travis Head and Mitchell Marsh came out all guns blazing to complete the win and square the series 1-1. Both openers struck fifties at strike rates nearing 200. Hard to think this is the same wicket where India was bundled out for 117.

That is why Mitchell Starc’s effort must be lauded. He rattled the Indian batting order with his early flourish. His four wickets saw India struggling at 51/5 at the end of 10 overs. Abbott and Ellis supplemented with the middle-order wickets.

March 19, 2023 17:27
AUS 121/0 in 11 overs - Australia wins by 10 wickets

Axar starts with a dot ball. DROPPED! Head top-edges a slog sweep. Shami comes charging from long on to attempt the catch but bottles it up. Sums up India’s day. Head collects two runs. Another couple on the next ball brings up his fifty. At 29 balls, he takes one delivery more than Marsh. Head then takes a single to level the scores. Marsh ends the match with a boundary.

March 19, 2023 17:23
AUS 112/0 in 10 overs

Kuldeep Yadav is brought into the attack. Marsh is indiscriminate. He will attack every bowler the same. He uses the crease to go back and smash the ball for a SIX over mid wicket. 97 metres long. A single to long on on the fourth delivery. Head hits a FOUR through long on. He mistimes a pull on the last delivery but the ball lands short of Jadeja at deep mid-wicket.

March 19, 2023 17:20
AUS 100/0 in 9 overs

Axar with the ball. Head mistime a pull on the first delivery before cutting the second one for FOUR. Head charges down looking to go over mid on. The bat face closes early but still reaches the boundary at deep square. Two singles off the next two deliveries. 100 up for Australia.

March 19, 2023 17:15
AUS 90/0 in 8 overs

Hardik Pandya is greeted by Marsh’s power. The Australian opener stands put in his crease and parks the ball into the second tier over the long off fence. Third delivery is tonked over deep mid-wicket for SIX! He had picked the slower one. FIFTY for Marsh. He reaches the milestone with a six. He needs just 28 deliveries.

March 19, 2023 17:11
AUS 72/0 in 7 overs

Spin is introduced with Axar Patel. Head on strike. A single to long off on the first delivery. Marsh almost plays on but the inside edge goes onto his pads.

March 19, 2023 17:09

March 19, 2023 16:37
AUS 2/0 in 1 over

A hint of in swing as Shami keeps the first three deliveries outside off stump. WIDE on the fourth delivery. Travis Head off the mark with a jab to third man. Shami wraps Mitchell Marsh on the pads on his first ball at the crease. But that was going down leg. Just two off the first over.

March 19, 2023 16:35
Time for Australia’s chase

Travis Head and Mitchell Marsh will begin the 118-run chase. Mohammed Shami to start the proceedings for India.

In the slot and Axar lifts Starc down the ground for a massive SIX. Starc slides to the pads and Axar flicks the ball over backward square for another SIX! He gets a single. Starc comes over the wicket and hits Siraj high on the pads. The umpire is unmoved but Australia reviews. Wickets missing and Siraj survives. Starc to Siraj, OUT! Bowled.

March 19, 2023 15:42

IND 54/5 in 11 overs

Starc is given an extended spell. Kohli swings and misses on the first delivery. A single with shot to deep cover on the next delivery. Jadeja using his luck.

Steve Smith: Looks a decent surface. It’s been under covers so might do something. Yeah, just a lack of partnership in the middle (in the 1st ODI). We lost wickets in clums. Hopefully, we can rectify today. We just play good consistent cricket. World cup here later in the year so it is a good learning experience. Two changes. Alex Carey back for Josh inglis and Nathan Ellis replaces Glenn Maxwell.

Rohit Sharma: It does not really matter now. Just looking to bat well and defend later. Every game is a pressure game. It is a conscious effort to stay calm and execute the plans. Two changes. Ishan Kishan misses out, I am back and Shardul Thakur misses as Axar Patel is in. Three spinners is something we might go with during the World Cup so want to try it.

Pitch Report

Deep Dasgupta: Nice and bright in Vizag now. Usually, it has been a batting paradise.

Ajit Agarkar: This (pitch) is slightly different than Mumbai. Lots of cracks. But the wicket looks firm so cracks might not open up. It has been covered due to the rain, so the moisture would have been retained. Batting will be difficult in the initial overs.

March 19, 2023 12:40
Did you know?

Rohit Sharma has scored hundreds in his last three innings in Vizag.

Rohit registered scores of 176 and 129 against South Africa in October 2019 as he made his debut as a Test opener. Rohit followed it up with a 159 against West Indies in December 2019.

IND vs AUS 2nd ODI preview

India will look to wrap up the one-day international series against Australia when the two sides meet here at the Dr Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium for the second ODI on Sunday.

In the series opener in Mumbai, the hosts fought back after losing the early momentum in both stages of the match to post a five-wicket win and go ahead 1-0 in the three-match series.

Regular skipper Rohit Sharma will take over the captaincy duties from Hardik Pandya after missing the first game for personal reasons. His return will bolster the top order, which struggled against Mitchell Starc’s fiery spell on Friday. Ishan Kishan is likely to make way for Rohit.

The ongoing series is a crucial part of the preparations for the World Cup later this year in India, and the Men in Blue can take heart from the fact there were some bright spots after the first match.

In Jasprit Bumrah’s absence, pacers Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj rose to the occasion with three wickets each. Notably, five of the six were during the middle overs, which triggered an Aussie collapse.

With the bat, K.L. Rahul guided India to victory with a masterfully crafted unbeaten 75 when the side was in trouble at 16 for three. The Karnataka batter holds the key for the team’s chances in the quadrennial event as a wicketkeeper batter in the middle-order.

Rahul’s form was an area of concern after he lost his place in the Test squad for the last two matches of the recently concluded Border-Gavaskar Trophy against the Aussies. But in ODIs, the 30-year-old has been one of India’s most consistent performers over the last three years.

Since 2020, Rahul has been averaging 63 from 19 innings, striking at nearly run-a-ball while batting in the middle order and has owned the number five position in the line-up.

While the Wankhede pitch assisted the quicks, Vizag has traditionally been a high-scoring venue with some help for spinners. There is also the possibility of showers on match day, with the city also receiving a spell of rain on Saturday evening.

In the last international game here, Yuzvendra Chahal spun the home team to victory against South Africa in a T20 match. So it will be interesting to see if the leg-spinner will get a look-in against a batting line-up with many right-handers ahead of Kuldeep Yadav, who came under attack from Mitchell Marsh in Mumbai.

Meanwhile, Australia will look to put up a better show with the bat after losing the last eight wickets for just 59 runs in the opening fixture. If David Warner and Alex Carey are fit to take the field, it should help things for the visitors. But the bigger worry is skipper Steve Smith’s form, as he has yet to score a half-century on this tour.

In the last seven years, India’s only ODI series defeat in its backyard came against Australia before the 2019 World Cup (3-2). The team from Down Under will need to produce a more disciplined effort on Sunday if it hopes to repeat that feat.
