In the second ODI between India and Australia, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja showcased their bowling prowess after a prolonged rain delay. India emerged victorious, defeating Australia by an emphatic margin of 99 runs, thus sealing the series with a 2-0 lead, with one more game to go.

India’s batting display was nothing short of exceptional as they posted a commanding total of 399/5 in their allotted 50 overs. This impressive feat was powered by the outstanding centuries scored by Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer. Ashwin and Jadeja played pivotal roles with the ball, each claiming three wickets to dismantle the Australian batting order.

India’s innings were further fueled by the explosive batting performances of KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav in the later stages of the game. Iyer demonstrated his batting prowess by amassing 105 runs from 90 deliveries, which included an impressive 11 boundaries and 3 sixes. On the other hand, Gill contributed a splendid 104 runs from 97 balls, featuring 6 fours and 4 sixes.

Following a rain-induced interruption, Australia’s revised target was set at 317 runs to chase in 33 overs. However, they struggled to contend with India’s relentless bowling attack and were bowled out for 217 runs, ultimately falling short of the target.
