Team India will look to leave behind the drubbing they faced in Mumbai and draw level in the second ODI against Australia set to be played at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium on Friday.
The Men in Blue will go into the second ODI on the back of a crushing 10-wicket defeat they faced at the Wankhede. The hosts will be without wicket-keeper batter Rishabh Pant in the match where they would be keen to prevent their second straight ODI series loss against Australia at home.
The hosts couldn’t capitalize on a strong second-wicket partnership of 121 between Shikhar Dhawan and Rahul and a below-par performance from the lower-middle order saw them reach a modest total which was chased down easily by Australia.
Time: 1:30 PM IST on Friday, on January 17.
