India vs Australia 2nd ODI Highlights Today 21 Sep 2017

Watch IND vs AUS highlights today. Australia vs India 2nd ODI highlights on 21-9-2017. Fighting fatigue and cramps on a humid Kolkata afternoon, Australia limited India to 252 despite half-centuries from two of their top three batsmen. At the 35-over mark, India were 185 for 3, with Virat Kohli closing in on another ODI hundred and in the middle of his second substantial partnership of the innings, and 300 looked possible. But they lost three wickets within the next five overs, including that of Kohli for 92, and were forced to temper their ambitions.

They couldn’t take too many risks, given their situation and the two-paced nature of the Eden Gardens surface, and Australia’s seamers, varying their pace and denying the batsmen room, gave them little to work with. Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar had added 33 in 51 balls when rain came down, with India 237 for 6 in 47.4 overs. Play resumed after a 14-minute delay, and the explosive finish India wanted simply didn’t materialise: the last 15 balls of the innings only produced 15 runs, for the loss of their last four wickets.
