India Vs Australia VideoAussies bounce back to outclass India - First Gillette ODI
He is keeping India alive single-handedly. Jadeja keeps hitting the rough on a length, and this one explodes from the pitch to go straight on as opposed to turning as expected.
This is sensational bowling. This is on a length, on middle and leg, drawing a forward-defensive from Cummins. The ball then turns away to beat the outside edge and hit the top of off.
Short, into the ribs, and he pulls it up and over. Lovely catch by silly point. Jadeja bowls slow in the air, Lyon defends off the front foot, the ball bounces extra and hits his bat high.
Dug out slightly wide of short fine leg. Rahul is a little slow, Smith wants to steal the second. He has worked inch by inch for this dismissal, and finally got the edge.
Rahul sees the line and tries of sway out of its line, but the ball cuts back in to follow his hands, and lobs off the glove for an easy catch for Wade.
This is exceptional quick bowling on a flat pitch. He jumps out of his crease, in this, the last over before lunch, and misses it.
The ball sneaks between his pad and bat. Wade does well with the collection down the leg side. And he is stumped. And that has come because Pujara has finally agreed to play a loose shot, looking for quick runs.
Looking to punch a short ball away, but the ball stops on him and is chipped to short midwicket. What a great innings. All the Aussies too. Sharp catch at second slip.
Pin-drop silence in Ranchi. He is walking slowly. They are checking for a no-ball. He is well in. Wide half-volley, no feet, he drives at it, and the edge flies to second slip, who has crept up because of the low bounce.
This one flies at him, giving him little reaction time. He leans back, absorbs the momentum of it, and takes it clean as a whistle.
How about that Maxwell chase that brought Kohli on strike? Rahane looks to ramp it. Too high to reach it. Would have been called wide had he not nicked this, but he nicks it.
That is a beauty from Hazlewood. They needed something special to get a wicket, and Hazlewood has produced it. Sharp reverse swing back in from a length outside off, goes past the inside edge, grazes the pad, and knocks over the off stump.
Australia needed a breakthrough there. Brute of a bouncer. Right at his head, Ashwin looks to sway out of its line and throws his hands in front of his face.
And it takes the glove as it passes the hand. What amazing bowling this is. This has to be reversed. Umesh jumps out of the crease, looking to clear mid-off, but gets too close to the ball and slices it low to mid-off.
Uses the angle, pitches this smack in the rough, Warner plays back when he should be forward. Perhaps it is the flat trajectory. There is an explosion in the rough, the ball turns past the inside edge, stays a touch low too.
He has set him up for the bouncer but has given him the full ball. On a length, just outside off, Renshaw caught back, the ball seams back in, stays a touch low, and traps him right in front.
Well, the fans certainly feel so. Dhoni becomes the fifth Indian batsman to reach 10, ODI runs. Dhoni in front as India loses its fourth wicket, and a big one at that.
Dhoni notches up his fifty as a run stand between him and Rohit Sharma continues to keep Australia on the tenterhooks.
Rohit, meanwhile, shifting gears with effortless ease. India needs more to win. India still feeling the effects of the initial meltdown but Dhoni and Rohit Sharma have restored a semblance of parity with a run stand.
Dhoni was crawling until he danced down the track and clobbered Nathan Lyon back over long on for six. Rohit Sharma, at the other end, is enjoying his time out there, two maximums taking him to 25 off 42 deliveries.
The onus will be on the experienced M. Dhoni and Rohit Sharma to ride out the initial storm. Dhoni, who became the fifth Indian batsman to reach 10, ODI runs, will be hoping to keep the ones and twos coming while Sharma will look to play the big shots.
Jhye Richardson is on fire at the moment! After having an appeal for an lbw turned down on the previous delivery, Behrendorff strikes back with an inswinger to trap Dhawan in front, and Australia has drawn first blood.
Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan in readiness, Behrendorff with the new ball. Kuldeep already has one but the fans feel he has plenty more coming his way!
Who will pick the most number of wickets for India? Finch and Carey got out early before Khawaja and Marsh stitched together a vital partnership to bail Australia out of choppy waters.
Khawaja reached his fifty but failed to make the most of a solid start, falling to Jadeja. Handscomb got away with the short ball at first but Bhuvneshwar Kumar has the last laugh as the right-hander hits the next delivery straight to Dhawan at sweeper-cover.
Handscomb departs for Kuldeep was taken to the cleaners by Stoinis and Handscomb with both batsmen hitting one six each in his final over; the latter bringing up his fifty in the process.
The host stepping foot on the pedal with just 30 balls left to play. Kuldeep strikes with the third ball of his new spell.
Marsh, who played well for his 54, tried to take on the wrist spinner but ended up hitting the ball straight to long-on where Shami took a nice catch diving forward.
Peter Handscomb is flexing muscle against Bhuvneshwar Kumar, hammering the right-arm seamer for two back-to-back boundaries.
Shaun Marsh, at the other end, has rarely looked troubled as he pushed past his 13th ODI half-century with a handsome looking pull shot off Khaleel.
Ravindra Jadeja traps Khawaja in front who tried to play the sweep but ended up making no contact. He reviewed the on-field decision but replays showed the ball just clipping the leg-stump.
Khawaja brings up his first fifty since with a single off Khaleel Ahmed. He has added 78 for the third wicket with Marsh.
The host side slowly, steadily finding its feet in the first innings. Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav operating from either end, with a slip in place.
Khawaja and Marsh using their feet well against Kuldeep. Marsh, unlike the Test series, has looked to keep the scoreboard ticking with a couple of attractive looking shots.
Kuldeep Yadav strikes with the fifth ball off his first over! A flat delivery outside off stump, and Carey tries to play the cut shot with no room on offer.
A sharp catch to Rohit Sharma at slips. Khaleel Ahmed has bowled well, save the two no-balls, has got the odd ball to rise off the surface.
Kumar, at the other end, has not given Usman Khawaja or Carey much room to work with. However, Carey has looked to remain positive, and has been solid in his footwork and timing.
Alex Carey keeping the Indian fielders busy. A confident strike over mid-on is followed by a streaky edge past slips for a second boundary.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar to start proceedings with the new ball. Alex Carrey and Aaron Finch open the innings for Australia.
Mark Waugh reckons the wicket is a belter. In the last five games, the average score is A good batting track, all in all.
There you have it, a good toss to win for the host side. Australia has won the toss and decided to bat first. Hit hard by an unexpected controversy after the high of the Test triumph, India will look to fine tune its World Cup preparations in the three-match ODI series against an under-fire Australia.
