Sydney: India’s fielding woes continued in the second One-Day International against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Sunday with Ravindra Jadeja, who is otherwise considered a safe pair of hands in the outfield, dropping Marnus Labuschagne at long-off off the bowling of Hardik Pandya.
The duo went on to form a partnership of 142 runs and it was Mohammad Shami who finally ended Finch`s (60) stint at the crease in the 23rd over. Soon after, Warner (83) was also sent back to the pavilion via a run-out in the 26th over, and this reduced Australia to 156/2.
That’s not a surprise. England opt for the same formula where they back themselves to chase the target. It mostly works in this format. They are unchanged too. South Africa have included Anrich Nortje and it will be interesting to see if he can recreate the magic alongside Rabada that we all witnessed in the […]
In the final eight overs, Labuschagne and Maxwell added 93 more runs to Australia’s total and as a result, the side posted a total of more than the 380-run mark. Labuschagne was dismissed after playing a knock of 70 runs while Maxwell remained unbeaten on 63.
‘Given the number of injuries @SunRisers had, this has been an impressive season to say the least. Of all the things they can be proud of,’ Ian Bishop, one of the West Indies’s fine fast bowlers, tweeted, ‘T Natarajan’s full season must sure be at the top of the list.
Jofra Archer again proved miserly in the powerplay with tight bowling and Ben Stokes recovered from an initial fumble to run out George Linde for 29, ending a 44-run sixth-wicket partnership with Rassie van der Dussen that had given some respectability to the South African tally.
As the two big guns of cricket, Australia and India battled it out on the field in the second ODI at SCG, another incident happened that caught the eye of the fans. As India chased Australia’s huge total of 389/4 – two fans in the crowd were busy scripting their love story.
Warner had earlier scored a brilliant 83 (off 77 balls; 4×7, 6×3) engaging in a formidable 142-run opening stand alongside skipper Aaron Finch as Australia posted a mammoth 389/4 on the board. Steve Smith scored his second successive ton (104 off 64 balls; 4×14, 6×2) in the game as the Indian bowlers were thrashed all […]
“There are probably two sides to Virat, one is the captaincy part and the other is the batting part. Who is going to bat in place of Virat. KL Rahul is very talented, there is no doubt about it. I think he is experienced, playing in these conditions before. He can do it,” Clarke said […]
Both batters went past their 50-run mark and the duo stitched together a partnership of more than 100 runs for the third consecutive time in ODI cricket. The duo went on to form a partnership of 142 runs and it was Mohammad Shami who finally ended Finch’s (60) stint at the crease in the 23rd […]
