Bangalore One Day International

Rohit Sharma scores 209; Chasing 384, Australia goes down fighting; IND-AUS:3-2(7/7)

Rohit Sharma 209 2013
India registered a thrilling 57-run victory over Australia at the jam-packed Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore and clinched the high-scoring seven-match series 3-2. Chasing 384, Faulkner hit his maiden century in first-class cricket (116, 73b, 11x4, 6x6), but the visitors were all out for 326 in 45.1 overs. Vinay Kumar gave away 102 runs in 9 overs for 1 wicket. Earlier, India opener Rohit Sharma became the third player to reach 200, and created history by slamming the highest number of sixes by any batsman in ODI history with 16 hits over the ropes. Sharma's brilliant 209 (158b, 12x4, 16x6) took India to a mammoth 383 for six at Bangalore. 101 runs came off the last five overs, with both Dhoni and Sharma having a go at the Australian bowlers. Last seven overs of the Indian innings: 1 1 . . 6 . | 1 2 . 1 2 1 | 1 4 4 . 6 1 | 6 4 . 6 4 6 | 2 6 1 1 6 4 | 6 4 2 . 1 4 | 6 6 W 4 4 1+W

Openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan's third 100-plus alliance (112) after the 176 at Jaipur and the 178 in Nagpur gave India a solid start after being sent into bat by the Australian captain. Rohit Sharma's first 50 took him 71 balls during which, he played out 39 dot balls, took 24 singles, hit three fours and one six. His fourth ODI ton - 101 of 114 balls - came in the company of Dhoni (62, 38b, 7x4, 2x6) with whom he had a 167-run fifth-wicket partnership. Rohit brought up his 150 with only 27 balls left in the innings but ended up on 209 as his last 59 came from a mere 18 balls which included seven sixes and three fours, and he played out only four dot balls. Rohit Sharma's series tally of 491 is the highest by a batsman in a bilateral series. The next-best has also happened in this series - Australian George Bailey's 478.The match witnessed 38 sixes - a new record in ODIs, eclipsing the previous-best of 31 in a game between India and New Zealand at Christchurch in 2009. The 26-year old Rohit Sharma, while becoming only the third batsman behind Virender Sehwag (219 at Indore vs New Zealand in 2009) and Sachin Tendulkar (200 not out vs South Africa at Gwalior in 2010) to notch an ODI double century, completed 1,000 runs in a calendar year and also crossed 3,000 career runs in the 50-over format. India won the 7-match series 3-2
Player of the match: RG Sharma
Player of the series: RG Sharma (491 runs in six innings at an average of 122.75) Reported Earlier: India will yet again rely on their batting firepower as they seek to clinch the one-day series against the visiting Australian team in the series-deciding shootout at Bangalore. Throughout the series, India have proved they deserve the top ranking and Australia that they are worthy contenders. It has been a series of 300-plus totals so far and India's stunning run-chases at Jaipur and Nagpur have shown that even 350 is not safe. The bowlers of both the sides are under tremendous pressure on flat batting tracks as despite the two washouts, a phenomenal 2,565 runs were scored from four ODIs so far, excluding the 295 the visiting team scored in the abandoned one-dayer in Ranchi. A series-win in India will boost the Australians ahead of the home Ashes series against England, starting later this month. India XI: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain & Wicket Keeper), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, R Vinay Kumar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shami Ahmed. Australia XI: George Bailey (Captain), Brad Haddin (Wicket Keeper), Phil Hughes, Aaron Finch, Shane Watson, Adam Voges, Glenn Maxwell, Nathan Coulter-Nile, James Faulkner, Clint McKay, Xavier Doherty.
7th & Final ODI: India 383/6 in 50 ov (Rohit Sharma 209, Dhoni 62) beat Australia 326 all out in 45.1 ov (Faulkner 116) by 57 runs

Nagpur One Day International

India chase down 351 in the must-win game; IND-AUS:2-2(6/7)

Kohli played yet another scintillating innings - scoring his 17th century on the way - and helped India level the seven-match ODI series 2-2 at Nagpur on a day when 701 runs were scored for just the loss of 10 wickets. Kohli's 66-ball 115 runs was enough for India to chase down 351 and beat Australia by six wickets. Earlier, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma gave India a yet another fantastic start - a monster opening partnership of 178 - that laid India's foundation for the big chase. Dhawan made 100 from 102 balls - his fourth ODI ton in his 24th match, while Sharma scored 79 from 89. MS Dhoni (25*) hit the winning runs. After Dhoni won the toss and elected to field, Australia made 350/6, thanks to centuries from Shane Watson (102 off 94 balls) and skipper George Bailey (156 off 114). India had the visitors under check in the first 20 overs by restricting Australia to 83/2 but things went south from there as Bailey notched up his fourth 50-plus score in five innings. Bailey has so far compiled 474 runs at an average of 118.5, while Kohli has made 344 at an average of 172. India made two changes in their playing XI - Vinay Kumar and Jaydev Unadkat making way for Amit Mishra and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Highest successful run chases in ODI history

India pulled off the third highest run chase in ODI history to level the series with Australia at 2-2 at Nagpur. The tourists had failed to defend a total of 359/5 in the second match of the series two weeks ago in Jaipur when Kohli also finished with an unbeaten century.

Reported earlier: India must beat Australia to take series into a decider when the two teams meet in Nagput today. The fifth ODI between India and Australia in Cuttack was called off due to a wet outfield. With two back to back abandoned games due to rains, the seven-match series has been reduced to a five-match series and India is trailing 1-2. They haven't won the full ODI series against Australia at home so far.

Cuttack One Day International

Fifth ODI: Rain derails Barabati match; IND-AUS:1-2(5/7)

The fifth ODI between India and Australia to be played on Saturday was called off due to rain and wet outfield. It has been raining incessantly in Cuttack for the last four days. After being thrashed 0-4 by India in the Test series earlier this year, Australia have come back strongly in the ongoing ODIs and India will now have to win both the remaining matches if it has to win the seven-math series, with Australia currently up 2-1.
Fifth ODI: Match called off due to rain, wet outfield

Ranchi One Day International

Fourth ODI: Rained out; IND-AUS:1-2(4/7)

The Indian team won the toss and asked Australia to bat first at Ranchi. Ishant Sharma and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were replaced by Jaydev Unadkat and Mohammed Shami. Shami gave a very early breakthrough and ended up with 3 wickets from his 8 overs, for 42 runs. Bailey (98) and Maxwell (92) were the top scorers for the visitors, who at one time was 71/4 after a brief rain interruption. The usually dependable Indian fielders dropped as many as six catches including two each of Bailey and Maxwell. Chasing 296, India were 27 for no loss in 4.1 overs in when heavens opened up for the second time during the match, and the umpires had to call it off when the wet outfield showed no signs of drying. Reported earlier: India, trailing 1-2 after the loss in the last ODI, would be under pressure to bounce back when they take on Australia in the fourth ODI at Ranchi. The hosts who retained the same eleven in the first three matches may be forced to tinker with the bowling line-up which has failed to live upto expectations. Introduction of two new balls, coupled with change in field restriction with fielders in the deep being reduced to four from five, has hit the Indian camp as the pacers are struggling to cope up with the alteration of rules.
Amul Ishant Sharma

Ishant Sharma was hit for 30 runs in one over by Australia batsman James Faulkner to snatch victory from India's hands in the third ODI on October 19 in Mohali. Despite his poor bowling, he has been retained for the remaining four ODIs of the series. In three ODIs of the series, he has conceded 189 runs for two wickets with an economy rate of over seven. Amul has now come out with an advertisement, mocking the 25-year-old. India XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain & Wicket Keeper), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, R. Vinay Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Jaydev Unadkat Australia XI: GJ Bailey (Captain), BJ Haddin (Wicket Keeper), Aaron Finch, Phil Hughes, Shane Watson, Adam Voges, Glenn Maxwell, James Faulkner, Mitchell Johnson, Clint McKay, Xavier Doherty
Fourth ODI: India 27/0 in 4.1 ov vs Australia 295/8 in 50 ov (Bailey 98, Maxwell 92, Shami 3-42) - No result

Mohali One Day International

Third ODI: Australia beat India in a thriller; IND-AUS:1-2(3/7)

James Faulkner's blitz - 64* from 29, including 30 off Ishant Sharma's 48th over when Australia needed 44 off 18 - gave the visitors the lead in the seven match ODI series as they chased down the target of 304 set by India with 3 balls to spare. Adam Voges (76* off 88) gave ample support to Faulkner. Ishant, with 68 ODI matches to his name, couldn't figure out where to bowl to, and was thrashed for 4, 6, 6, 2, 6, 6 by the tail-ender Faulkner. With nine runs needed off the final over, Aussies scored a single and a couple on the first two deliveries, and then Man of the Match James Faulkner smashed the ball from Vinay Kumar over deep midwicket fence for a six.A masterful century by skipper MS Dhoni had earlier taken India to 303/9 from a dangerous looking 148/5 in 29.4 overs. Australia won the toss and elected to field for the first time in the series. For the Aussies, Johnson finished with 4-46.Reported earlier: After a sensational performance in Jaipur, a supremely confident India will look to keep the momentum going in the third cricket ODI at Mohali on Saturday. The cricket pitch at the PCA Stadium is unlikely to be as much of a belter as the one in Jaipur which saw the Indian bowlers leaking 359, and then the Australians being belted for 362 for the loss of 1 wicket in 43.3 ov by the Indians.
Third ODI: Australia 304/6 in 49.3 ov (Voges 76*, Faulkner 64*) beat India 303/9 in 50 ov (MS Dhoni 139*, Kohli 68, Johnson 4-46) by 4 wickets

Jaipur One Day International

Second ODI: India registers 2nd highest run-chase in history with 9 wickets to spare; IND-AUS:1-1(2/7)

India vs Australia 2013 Highest Run Chase
Rohit Sharma (141* of 123) and Virat Kohli (100* of 52) scored a century each to guide India to a massive 9-wicket victory over Australia in Jaipur to level the seven-match series at 1-1. It was also the second-highest run chase in one-day international history, and came with 39 balls to spare. With this loss, Australia has now conceded the four highest one-day chases of all time - and all since 2006. Kohli's 52-ball 100 was the fastest ODI century by an Indian and seventh fastest ever, and included seven sixes and eight fours, while Man of the match Sharma was similarly destructive as he clubbed 17 fours and four sixes in his 123-ball innings. Shikhar Dhawan with 95 ended up with the lowest score in the team sheet. The Indian victory was brought about by two partnerships - an opening stand of 174 between Dhawan and Rohit off 26 overs followed by another 186 runs scored in only 17.2 overs between Rohit and Kohli. Earlier Australia scored a mammoth 359 for five, batting first after winning the toss, as all the top five batsmen notched up 50-plus scores, the first such instance in a one-day international. It was also Australia's highest total on Indian soil surpassing their previous best of 350 for four in Hyderabad in 2009. Phil Hughes (83), Aaron Finch (50) - who registered his third half-century of the tour, and Shane Watson (59) set up the platform for skipper Bailey (92*) and Glenn Maxwell (53) to finish the innings with a flourish. Austraians hit 12 sixes. At the halfway mark, everything pointed to Australia taking a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. This match also equalled the most half centuries (8) in an ODI innings.

Preview: Australia will look to go two-up in the series on the greenish looking Sawai Mansingh Stadium wicket, after their pacers had derailed India in Pune in the first ODI. Brad Haddin's eye will be assessed before Wednesday's second one-day international after a wayward high-five from team-mate and seamer Faulkner, who had just dismissed India opener Shikhar Dhawan, forced the Australia wicketkeeper from the field during Sunday's 72-run win in Pune. Phil Hughes stood in for Haddin, and took two catches. Virat Kohli was India's top scorer in Sunday's match in Pune, but his 61 runs didn't come fast enough for his team to match Australia's total of 304.

Pune One Day International

First ODI: Clinical Australia thrash India by 72 runs; IND-AUS:0-1(1/7)

Gritty half-centuries by Aaron Finch (72 off 79 balls) and captain George Bailey (85 off 82) set up Australia's 304 for eight in the first cricket one-dayer in Pune on Sunday, after electing to bat first. Chasing 305, which would have been India's highest successful run chase against Australia, the lacklustre hosts lost early wickets and were always behind the required run rate before being bowled out for 232 in 49.4 overs. James Faulkner struck thrice while other pacers Shane Watson and Clint Mckay picked up two wickets each as the visitors took a 1-0 lead over the hosts.

India vs Australia 2013

Preview - India vs Australia in Pune

The Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium in Pune will make its one-day international debut today as India, who is looking to retain the top spot in the rankings, taken on Australia in the first One Day International match of the current series. This was also the home ground of former Indian Premier League franchise Sahara Pune Warriors, which has recently withdrawn from the IPL. The right-left combination of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan will be India's likely openers for the first ODI against Australia. Rohit has made the most of the opportunities that have come his way, scoring 580 runs in the last 16 games, while Dhawan has amassed 680 runs with three centuries in the past 14 matches. The Indian batting order has also been given a boost by Yuvraj Singh's return. India whitewashed the Aussies 4-0 in a Test series in Feb-Mar 2013. The last time these two teams met, Australia won by 9 wickets against India in the World T20 Championship in Sri Lanka in Sep, 2012. India will be playing without some of their senior players like Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh while even some of the talented juniors, such as Dinesh Karthik, Murali Vijay, Irfan Pathan and Umesh Yadav could not find place in the squad. Australia relies heavily on players like Callum Ferguson, Moises Henriques and Aaron Finch as some of their experienced players David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Michael Clarke and Mitchell Starc were not selected for the tour. The next six games will take place in Sawai Mansingh Stadium (Jaipur), Punjab Cricket Association Stadium (Mohali), JSCA International Stadium Complex (Ranchi), Barabati Stadium (Cuttack), Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium (Nagpur) and M Chinaswamy Stadium (Bangalore) respectively. India Squad: MS Dhoni (Captain & Wicket Keeper), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Vinay Kumar, Amit Mishra, Ambati Rayudu, Mohammed Shami, Jaydev Unadkat Australia Squad: GJ Bailey (Wicket Keeper), NM Coulter-Nile, XJ Doherty, JP Faulkner, CJ Ferguson, AJ Finch, BJ Haddin (Captain), MC Henriques, PJ Hughes, MG Johnson, CJ McKay, GJ Maxwell, AC Voges, SR Watson
