The best ODI batsman at the moment, Virat Kohli scored his 40th hundred during the Nagpur match against Australia. However, apart from him, only Vijay Shankar had hit a few runs – 46 off 41 balls; while the others failed to hit the purple patch, including the openers and last match heroes – Kedar Jadhav and MS Dhoni. For Australia, Pat Cummins stood out – picking up four wickets, while Adam Zampa picked two wickets. In the end, the hosts scored 250.

Kohli hits ton; Shankar’s shine as well

India didn’t get off to a good start in the second ODI, as Pat Cummins got Rohit Sharma’s number inside the first over on zero. As Australia had won the toss and asked India to bat, they didn’t mind such a beginning. Though Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli added 38 runs for the second wicket, Maxwell was quick in removing Dhawan – trapping him in front of the wickets. It was about time before Ambati Rayudu returned to the pavilion as well.

At that stage, Vijay Shankar joined Kohli in the middle and took the onus on himself. The all-rounder who had played up the order during NZ T20Is got a brilliant chance to showcase his skill – which he did brilliantly. As he was going strong, a straight shot off Kohli got him run-out on 46 off 41 balls. Meanwhile, Australia bagged two quick wickets in Kedar Jadhav and MS Dhoni off successive balls – leaving India reeling at 171 for six.
