After losing early wickets, Australia bounced back in the first ODI to seal a five-wicket victory with four balls to spare as they chased a target of 310 runs. The two opening batsmen, Aaron Smith and David Warner were dismissed for 8 and 5 respectively by debutante Barinder Sran.
It was the 242-run partnership between skipper Steven Smith (149) and George Bailey (112) that helped the hosts achieve the target. Both batsmen went on to score a century as Australia managed a win in the first ODI.
Australia will be without David Warner for the second and third ODI as the left-handed opening batsman will be on paternity leave. Usman Khawaja has been drafted into the squad in place of Warner for the two matches.
Rohit Sharma was the star batsman for India as his unbeaten 171 helped his team post a total of 309 runs. He was well supported by Virat Kohli, who fell nine runs short of his century in the first ODI.
MS Dhoni will be hoping his batsmen can fire in the second ODI as the fixture is expected to be a high scoring match. It is unlikely that bowlers will find any joy and it will be down to the batting lineup of both the teams to help their side win the match.
