Watch video highlights of the 2nd ODI between India and Australia in Jaipur.
It’s hard to imagine that you can post 359 runs in a one day international and still be on the end of a thrashing. But that’s what happened to Australia. They lost by nine wickets as India won an extraordinary match with 39 deliveries to spare.
Australia won the toss and choose to bat, putting on a sizable score of 359 with all of Australia’s top five batsman clocking up half centuries. George Bailey continued his sublime form hitting 92 of 50 balls and Phil Hughes anchored the innings with a solid 83 runs.
However, India came out firing in their chase with Rohit Sharma (145*) and Shikhar Dhawan (95) combining for an opening wicket partnership of 176. Virat Kohli, in a knock reminiscent of that MCG ton against Sri Lanka, took India’s innings to another level and in the process took the game away from Australia, knocking up his 16th ODI ton of just 52 balls.
Only one team in the world could have pulled this off.
