Ind/Aus 2013 Second ODI - India beats Australia in a thrilling encounter

India won the match in great style after Australia put up a huge total of 360 to chase. The pitch had nothing to assist the bowlers and it was evident in the way the batsmen from both the sides were able to dominate the bowling.

Earlier Australia won the toss and elected to bat first and made most of the opportunity. Skipper George Bailey and all the top 5 Aussie batsmen showed lot of grit and determination to put another challenging total against the hosts.

But when India resumed it's innings first few overs were kept tight by the Australian bowlers. But after that India's batsmen showed tremendous skills to overcome some aggressive bowling.

Once the batsmen were in the groove they were easily able to rotate the strike. The match was thoroughly entertaining through out. Specially the brilliant knock by Virat Kohli breaking record of sorts.

He has proved that time and again, and Australia know how important a player he is to the Indian batting line up.

With the second match, the two sides draw level 1-1.
