Thunder downunder Episode-2| India vs Australia 2nd ODI|Kuthi na Muku Mela Raja

The second episode of Thunder Downunder is going to be exciting. India had a poor start against Australia and a significant improvement is required in all 3 areas if India want to put up a fight against the Australians in the Odi series.

The Australians will be a happy lot after they secured a massive 66 run victory over the Indians at SCG. The Indian bowling attack lacked discipline and they paid a huge price as the Australian top order including David Warner, Aaron Finch and Steve Smith amassing over 250 runs among them with Smith and Finch going to score memorable centuries. Finch took his time in the crease but after he settled down showed the Indians why he is the captain of the Australian side in the shorter format of the game. Steven Smith on the other hand took the fight as soon as he walked into the middle and scored runs at an alarming rate that put the pressure on the Indian bowling attack. Overall, it was a poor effort from the bowling department for India as they leaked runs to all parts of the ground giving the aussies a mammoth 374 runs in the quota of 50 overs.

The Indians on the other hand had a brisk start but something came undone as the top 4 batsmen got out to the short delivery trying to score runs. Is this a weakness we are going to see in Australia as the intent is to hit the short ball but India seems to have come undone with this tactic. Hardik Pandya played a blinder, he along with Shikar gave a fright to the aussies up to the 35th over. Unfortunately, once both were dismissed the game was pretty much over with the aussies winning by a comfortable margin.

Can India bounce back in the 2nd ODI, will Virat try and include a 6th bowler to give him more options.
