India goes 1-0 up in this series, thanks to some matured innings from Dhoni and Kedhar. Australia gritted and fought their way but could get over the line as they posted a poor total of 236 on board, courtesy of some superb Indian bowling; it was always going to be just about 20-25 runs short on a slow surface with variable bounce. They still did well to drag India back from 80 for 1 to have them reeling at one stage on 99 for 4. But Dhoni and Jadhav batted the situation astutely. Kept the runs coming, and never let the run-rate go alarmingly high. They stayed together to see India over the line and ensure that there are no more hiccups and collapses. Australia will be hoping for better batting performance in this ODI. Now let’s have a look at Ind vs Aus 2nd ODI Fantasy Cricket Tips and Dream11 Team.
