Australia have been trounced of their one-day sequence in India, shedding 2-0 with one sport to go after they had been set a revised goal of 317 from 33 overs in a rain-delayed sport in Indore.
Australia had reached 2-56 from 9 overs when the heavens opened, leaving them needing an extra 261 from 24 overs below the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) system to haul in India’s mammoth 5-399 on Sunday (Monday morning AEST).
It was a job that proved too nice as they had been dismissed some 99 runs from victory.
Australia’s chase began disastrously when, within the second over, opener Matt Brief (9) sliced an outswinger to Ravichandran Ashwin at third man, earlier than appearing captain Steve Smith nicked off to Shubman Gill at slip for a golden duck to place seamer Prasidh Krishna on a hat-trick.
David Warner (26no) and Marnus Labuschagne (17no) had been on the crease when play was halted and the covers got here on, however the vacationers had their work reduce out even earlier than the rain got here. India had delivered a shocking innings, amassing their highest whole in ODIs towards Australia.
It wasn’t the one benchmark to tumble. An undesirable file went the best way of Cameron Inexperienced (2-103), who conceded probably the most runs by a bowler in an Australia-India ODI.
Shreyas Iyer (105) and Shubman Gill (104) shrugged off an earlier 40-minute rain delay to placed on 200 for the second wicket earlier than Indian skipper KL Rahul (52) made it back-to-back half-centuries.
Suriyakumar Yadav (72no off 37 balls) placed on a power-hitting clinic, bludgeoning the primary 4 balls of Inexperienced’s eighth over for 6-6-6-6.
