India vs Australia 1st ODI Highlights: Mohammed Shami claimed career-best figures of 5-51 and India’s frontline batters gave a good account themselves to secure their five-wicket victory against Australia in the opening one-day international on Friday. Put into bat, Australia were all out for 276 in exactly 50 overs even though 300 looked within their reach before Shami polished off their tail. In reply, four of India’s top six batters smashed half-centuries as the home side led, who have rested several frontline players, romped home with eight balls to spare.

    India vs Australia Live Score: Rahul ends it with a six, India win by 5 wickets

    India vs Australia Live Score: A six off the very next ball and India’s stand-in captain has finished the job in style for his job. Rahul ends the match unbeaten on 58 off 63. A towering strike down the ground to finish the game off. A comprehensive win in the end for the hosts and they take a 1-0 lead in this three-match series. And with this win, India are also now the No.1 ranked ODI side in the world. They are now the top ranked team in Men’s Tests, ODIs and T20Is.

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR! 50 for Rahul

    India vs Australia Live Score: OUT! 50 and gone for SKY

    India vs Australia Live Score: He has a wry smile on his face does Suryakumar as he looks at Rahul at the other end. He flicks Abbot straight down the throat of the fielder at deep square leg. SKY wanted to finish this clearly but this will be remembered as an important innings, regardless of what happens to him from here on.

    India vs Australia Live Score: FIFTY FOR SKY!

    India vs Australia Live Score: That would be a sight for sore eyes as far as Rahul Dravid, Rohit Sharma, Ajit Agarkar and the rest of the team management is concerned. The only justification for including SKY in the World Cup squad has been his obvious genius in T20Is. This innings, might just be exactly what India need from and what SKY needed to get going. Just imagine if there is an ODI version of Suryakumar Yadav playing for India in the World Cup.

  • Sep 22, 2023 09:30 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: SIX! THERE IS THE SKY SCOOP!

    India vs Australia Live Score: SKY decides to bring the best T20 batter in the world out for this one. He is cruising now, so why not. Fourth ball of the 46th bowled by Green, SKY gets down and dirty, flicks it right over the wicketkeeper’s head.

  • Sep 22, 2023 09:28 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR!

    Flicked fine by SKY to say goodbye to Pat Cummins. The Australian captain ends his spell with figures of 1/44. This was a slow ball but angled nicely down leg, SKY sits back and flicks it to the boundary. India are 253/4, need 24 to win off 30. SKY moves to 40 off 42, Rahul is on 44 off 54.

  • Sep 22, 2023 09:17 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR! India 242/4 in 43 overs

    India vs Australia Live Score: Rahul ends that over with a dismissive pull shot. Short ball about chest high from Cummins, Rahul waits and cracks it through midwicket.

  • Sep 22, 2023 09:15 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: India 234/4 in 42 overs

    India vs Australia Live Score: They need 43 to win off 48. This partnership is closing in on 50 now. Rahul on 33 off 41, SKY on 32 off 37. The T20 SKY is not to be seen today and that is just as well for India, he has hardly looked bothered at all today.

  • Sep 22, 2023 09:05 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR! Another SKY straight drive

    India vs Australia Live Score: That is the third time he has done this, off the first ball of an over yet again. A lovely straight drive right past the bowler, unstoppable. SKY far better than he did in goodness knows how many ODI innings in the past. He has reached 29 in 30.

  • Sep 22, 2023 08:59 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR! What a shot from SKY

    India vs Australia Live Score: Full from Stoinis for the first ball of the 40th and SKY just caresses it back in the same direction along the ground for four. India need 59 to win off 65 now.

  • Sep 22, 2023 08:44 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: 200 up for India

    India vs Australia Live Score: India are 201/4 in 36 overs. SKY Is on 10 off 15, Rahul on 22 off 27. SKY has put the fancy shots in his pockets for now and that is all India need as well. The required rate is 5.53 and their current run rate is 5.54.

  • Sep 22, 2023 08:42 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: India 196/4 in 35 overs

    India vs Australia Live Score: SKY got himself going with a late ramp over the vacant slips region off Cummins. This is another chance he has got to get a good score in his ODI career and this partnership would also be crucial to India’s cause in this game. He is on 7 off 11, Rahul on 20 off 25.

  • Sep 22, 2023 08:34 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: GONE! Kishan has to walk

    India vs Australia Live Score: Just as it looked India have got it back together. Kishan follows a short ball from Cummins for an upper cut, gets a feather edge on it and is caught behind.

  • Sep 22, 2023 08:26 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: India 184/3 in 32 overs

    India vs Australia Live Score: Rahul and Kishan beginning to settle down now. Partnership between them is now on 33.

  • Sep 22, 2023 08:10 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: India 168/3 in 29 overs

    India vs Australia Live Score: Ishan Kishan on 10 off 16, Rahul on seven off 10. The run rate has fallen, as you’d expect considering India lost two big wickets in virtually no time but Australia would know that there is still a long way to go before they can consider themselves to be truly in control of this match. Two of India’s most in-form batters in ODI cricket out there at the moment.

  • Sep 22, 2023 08:00 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR!

    India vs Australia Live Score: Ishan Kishan drills Zampa down the ground off the very first ball he faces. He had absolutely smashed that one and the ball reaches the boundary in no time.

  • Sep 22, 2023 07:54 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: OUT! And now Gill falls!

    India vs Australia Live Score: Well Australia have stormed back into this match now. Gill tries his favourite cut shot but this time he misses it and the ball hits middle and off. Zampa gets his second wicket.

    India vs Australia Live Score: OUT! Iyer is run out!

    India vs Australia Live Score: No game time today for Iyer, he is run out after facing eight balls. Full ball around off from Zampa for the fourth ball of the 24th, Shreyas pushed to cover and set off, there probably wasn’t a run there. Gill stops and Iyer turns back, Green sends in a gun throw and Inglis whips the bails off before Iyer can make his ground.

  • Sep 22, 2023 07:37 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: OUT! Breakthrough at last for Australia

    India vs Australia Live Score: Big appeal off the very next ball and Gaikwad is gone. Gaikwad has a word with Gill and then starts walking back, so no DRS here. On a length on middle from Zampa, it turns away and Gaikwad is hot on the pads as he gets on the sweep early. A fantastic innings comes to an end from Gaikwad and Shreyas Iyer is replacing him at No.3.

    India vs Australia Live Score: India 120/0 in 18 overs. Gaikwad now on 59 in 64, Gill is on 59 off 44 and Australia are on their haunches. First Gaikwad pulls Abbott behind square and then he hits the last ball of the over wide of mid off.

  • Sep 22, 2023 07:18 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Half century for Gaikwad!

    India vs Australia Live Score: While Gill has galloped away at the other end, Gaikwad has taken his time and he has been as much responsible for Australia being flattened in these first 17 overs as his partner. He gets there in 60 balls.

  • Sep 22, 2023 07:16 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR! Gaikwad 2 runs away from fifty

    India vs Australia Live Score: The 100-run stand came up in 15.2 overs. Gill on 57 off 42, Gaikwawd on 42 off 54. Australia looking slightly bereft of ideas here.

  • Sep 22, 2023 07:02 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR AND SIX! 50 for Gill!

    India vs Australia Live Score: He whips the fifth ball of the 14th from Short through midwicket. Then the next one is lofted over long off and that is his half century in just 37 balls. Gill seems to have regained that Midas touch he had earlier this year. India are 95/0 in 14 overs, Gill is on 53 off 37, Gaikwad on 40 off 47.

  • Sep 22, 2023 06:55 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR! Lucky for Gaikwad

    India vs Australia Live Score: The physio has come out as the ball brushed the top of his helmet. Everyone smiling as that concussion test is being done. Very well directed short delivery from Green for the fourth ball of the 13th, Gaikwad got rushed into the pull and it takes a top edge, a chip off the helmet and flies behind the keeper for four.

  • Sep 22, 2023 06:55 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR!

    India vs Australia Live Score: Green sends in the second ball of the 13th slow, Gill picks it up and sends it past mid-off.

    India vs Australia Live Score: Gill on 34 off 28, Gaikwad on 34 off 44. Matt Short bowls the first over of spin in this innings and just two runs come off it.

  • Sep 22, 2023 06:45 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: BACK TO BACK FOURS! India 66/0 in 10 overs

    India vs Australia Live Score: Gaikwad finishes the first powerplay off with a flurry. He first pierces the gap between cover-point and extra cover with an almost gentle push. Then he sends Abott to deep point for another boundary. Gaikwad gets to 32 off 37, Gill is on 32 off 23.

  • Sep 22, 2023 06:39 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR! 50 up for India

    India vs Australia Live Score: This one is a proper boundary. That was a backfoot punch with timing as good as Gill at the other end. India are 53/0 in 8.4 overs

  • Sep 22, 2023 06:37 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Batters run four!

    India vs Australia Live Score: Gill gets the first ball of Green’s over to roll away to the square leg boundary. Zampa stops it right at the ropes but the batters run four runs anyhow. Then there is a long check to see if Zampa had managed to stop it properly. The batters may not have been very happy about that being signalled as a boundary considering the lung busting work they did in the middle.

  • Sep 22, 2023 06:35 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: India 43/0 in 8 overs

    India vs Australia Live Score: Cameron Green now being brought into the attack with Cummins taking himself off. Gaikwad on 17 off 30 and Gill on 25 off 18. Both batters have hardly looked troubled by anything the Australians have thrown at them, which is a worry for the away side.

  • Sep 22, 2023 06:27 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Six overs gone, India 41/0

    India vs Australia Live Score: Gaikwad got a four in that over off the fourth ball, Slicing Sean Abbott between point and cover-point. He has made 16 in 19 now, Gill on 24 off 17. The run rate of 6.83 is much higher than the required rate of 5.36 and so, this young opening combination has kept India in a comfortable place thus far.

  • Sep 22, 2023 06:19 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: India 31/0 in 4 overs

    India vs Australia Live Score: Gill has raced to 22 off 12, Gaikwad on 9 off 12. This is his home ground in domestic cricket and Gill is putting on a show.

  • Sep 22, 2023 06:16 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: SIX! Oh what a shot from Gill!

    India vs Australia Live Score: Stoinis bowling fourth, he goes short for the second ball and Gill pulls it over deep backward square. He played that almost nonchalantly and it has gone to the stands.

  • Sep 22, 2023 06:15 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: India 20/0 after three overs

    India vs Australia Live Score: Two very good stops on the off side denies what could have been a couple of boundaries for Gaikwad. He is on nine off 11, Gill on 11 off seven.

  • Sep 22, 2023 06:11 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR! Pure timing from Gill

    India vs Australia Live Score: First ball of the third over, short outside off angling away from Gill, he punches it between point and extra cover.

  • Sep 22, 2023 06:09 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: India 6/0 in 1 over

    India vs Australia Live Score: Gaikwad faced all of the deliveries in that over, with the fifth one being clipped off the pads for four.

    India vs Australia Live Score: The players return

    India vs Australia Live Score: Shubman Gill and Ruturaj Gaikwad are opening the batting for India. Pat Cummins has the ball in his hands.

  • Sep 22, 2023 05:49 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Shami only behind Kapil Dev

    That five-wicket haul took Shami’s tally in ODIs between India and Australia to 37 wickets. It catapulted him above Javagal Srinath and Ajit Agarkar’s record and only Kapil Dev has taken more than him in the format for India against Australia. Kapil took 45 in 41 ODIS against Australia.

  • Sep 22, 2023 05:40 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Shami talks

    India vs Australia Live Score: “Very happy, enjoy the company of Siraj a lot. It’s important to bowl in the right areas and set the tone. Yes, it was hot out here. There wasn’t much out of the wicket so the only option was to bowl good lengths and mix-up your variations. Feels good when you put in the effort and get wickets, it’s good for the team and for your confidence.”

  • Sep 22, 2023 05:30 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Australia 276 all out in 50 overs

    India vs Australia Live Score: A run out off the last ball and that is the end of an entertaining Australian innings. Just from how this pitch has behaved thus far and history in Mohali, this might just be a bit of an under par total for Australia.

  • Sep 22, 2023 05:28 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR! Cummins times it perfectly

    India vs Australia Live Score: Fourth ball of the last over from Thakur, Cummins steps forward and drills it through covers. He has scored 17 in 7.

  • Sep 22, 2023 05:22 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Wicket, 2, Wicket, Shami gets 5!

  • Sep 22, 2023 05:15 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: OUT! Bumrah gets a wicket at last

    India vs Australia Live Score: No half century for Inglis but a good innings from him. Bumrah sends in the second ball of the 48th slow and Inglis spoons it to cover.

  • Sep 22, 2023 05:11 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: GONE! Stoinis falls

    India vs Australia Live Score: Back to back fours and then gone! Shami gets his third. Full delivery, stays a bit low, Stoinis tries to slog across the line, misses it complete and middle and leg stumps are rattled.

  • Sep 22, 2023 05:07 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Australia 238/5 in 46 overs

    India vs Australia Live Score: This partnership has brought on 54 runs in 40 balls. Inglis is on 44 off 42, Stoinis on 21 off 17. This has been quite a counter-attack from Australia. Bumrah and Shami.

  • Sep 22, 2023 04:57 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: SIX! Off the next ball!

    Short from Thakur on the body, Inglis stands tall, swivels and pulls him over backward square. Take some that if you please.

  • Sep 22, 2023 04:56 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR!

    India vs Australia Live Score: Third ball of the 44th over Thakur, Inglis drills it inside out past cover. That is a shot and a half.

    India vs Australia Live Score: Inglis got a boundary wide of long off of the fourth ball of that over from Jadeja, his second last of this match. Inglis moves to 23 off 29, Stoinis on 18 off 12. These two are big hitters and Australia are looking to step up the run rate now.

  • Sep 22, 2023 04:46 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Australia 192/5 in 41 overs

    India vs Australia Live Score: Rahul seems to have sore finger as the ball hit his left finger but he is carrying on. He has had quite a few gaffes today, but two of those led to wickets so hey, who is complaining.

  • Sep 22, 2023 04:44 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR! Stoinis is away

    India vs Australia Live Score: Bumrah brought back as India look to get into Australia lower order quickly. Fourth ball of the 41st and Stoinis, who is searching for form in ODIs, reaches out to a wide full toss and slices it behind point to the boundary.

  • Sep 22, 2023 04:36 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: MIX-UP AND GONE!

    India vs Australia Live Score: OH GREEN HAS TO WALK BACK! Chaos out there and Green has ended up falling. Rahul misfields and Green tries to take an extra run out of it, Inglis sets off but then goes back and by the time Green turns around, he is almost at the striker’s end. The throw comes in, it was wide but SKY backs it up and throws it on the stumps while flat on the ground. Terrible dismissal and Austaralia are in trouble now.

  • Sep 22, 2023 04:19 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: The situation thus far

    India vs Australia Live Score: India started brightly, with Shami dismissing Marsh off just the fourth ball of the first over. But then David Warner and Steve Smith put on a counter-attacking stand. The pair put up 94 runs off 106 balls for the second wicket and that was broken by Ravindra Jadeja, who dismissed Warner for 52 off 53 balls. Smith fell soon there after to Shami for 41 off 60. Labuschagne then scored 39 off 49 in a 45-run stand with Green before falling to Ashwin by a rather freakish dismissal. Green has held fort with Inglis. He is on 21 off 40 while Josh Inglis is at the other end on three off eight. Australia are 166/4 in 35.4 overs.

  • Sep 22, 2023 04:12 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: And now the covers being taken off

    India vs Australia Live Score: Just a passing drizzle it seems. There was absolutely no rain forecast today so it would be a surprise if this lasts for too long. Conversely though, there is a chance that the recovery from this might take longer since the lack of a forecast could have caught everyone off guard.

  • Sep 22, 2023 04:08 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: It’s raining and the players are running!

    India vs Australia Live Score: And here are those showers that sprinkled over Chandigarh not too long ago. The covers come out and the players go off.

  • Sep 22, 2023 04:03 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Australia 165/4 in 35 overs

    India vs Australia Live Score: Inglis is the new batter and he has scored 3 in six, Green on 20 off 39. Still Ashwin and Thakur but the former could be coming to the end of his spell, he just bowled his ninth over.

  • Sep 22, 2023 04:01 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR!

    India vs Australia Live Score: Fourth ball of the 34th from Thakur, Green skips down the track and slaps it wide of the deep point fielder.

  • Sep 22, 2023 03:52 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: GONE! LABUSCHAGNE STUMPED!

    India vs Australia Live Score: That is somewhat freakish, Labuschagne very unlucky here. Fourth ball of the 33rd from Ashwin, Labuschagne looks to sweep this, it takes a bit of an edge and then ricochets on to the stump from Rahul’s leg. The third umpire deems that no part of Labuschagne’s foot is grounded behind the crease and that is that for him.

  • Sep 22, 2023 03:44 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Australia 155/3 in 31 overs

    India vs Australia Live Score: Almost a big collision there between the two batters but Labuschagne gets home with a dive. Green plays the last ball of the 31st from Jadeja to cover, SKY with a throw was a bit wide and Rahul failed to gather once again. Shardul Thakur comes back for the next over now.

  • Sep 22, 2023 03:36 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Clouds starting to gather…

    India vs Australia Live Score: Australia are 148/3 in 29 overs. Ravichandran Ashwin has been brought back. Labuschagne on strike on 34 off 37 and Green at the other end on 11 off 21. Meanwhile, there are rain clouds ow starting to gather. While the players may welcome that little respite from the heat, there are also slight worries of an interruption as it was raining in nearby Chandigarh.

  • Sep 22, 2023 03:31 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR!

    India vs Australia Live Score: First ball of the 28th from Bumrah, Green smashes wide of deep third man. It was short and outside off from Bumrah, Green almost ramped that one past the fielder.

  • Sep 22, 2023 03:13 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: RUN OUT CHANCE MISSED!

    India vs Australia Live Score: Captain Rahul the culprit here, no excuses for that. Labuschagne pushes the first ball of the 23rd from Jadeja to extra cover, he sets off but there is no response from his partner! He is halfway down the track when he turns around and the ball comes to Rahul at that same point. But the Indian wicketkeeper fails to collect it. The throw was a little wide of the stumps but if he had catched that throw, it was a regulation run out. Labuschagne lives and Rahul puts his head down for a few seconds before standing back up.

  • Sep 22, 2023 03:04 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: CASTLED!

    India vs Australia Live Score: OUT! Smith falls victim to an inside edge and plays on. A well-deserved reward for Shami in the first over of his second spell. India in full roar as the other set batter now makes his exit. The ball hit a crack and jagged back in, catching the inside edge of Smith’s bat before crashing into the stumps. Australia is shaken a bit at 112/3, and India is right back in the game.

  • Sep 22, 2023 02:52 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: WICKET! Jadeja gets Warner

    India vs Australia Live Score: OUT! Warner departs, caught at long-on. Jadeja secures India’s second wicket. There’s a hint of fatigue in Warner’s shot, and who could blame him? Jadeja bowls a back-of-a-length delivery, slightly slower, and Warner struggles to time it correctly. Shubman Gill takes his second catch of the match. Australia stand at 98/2 after 18.2 overs.

  • Sep 22, 2023 02:47 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FIFTY for David Warner

    India vs Australia Live Score: The crowd erupts with cheers as David Warner takes a single off Ashwin to reach his 29th ODI fifty. They love them here in India. Despite getting dropped on 14, Warner has displayed no intention of squandering this chance. He’s currently treating the Indian bowlers to a masterclass, with the surface and conditions offering them minimal assistance.

  • Sep 22, 2023 02:42 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Now Shardul is feeling the heat, quite literally

    India vs Australia Live Score: A break in the middle of the over as Shardul Thakur, after bowling four balls, tired out. He has his hands on his thigh and is struggling to catch his breath. Another example of just how unbearable this heat is. The officials take this opportunity to signal the drinks break. Even Warner and Smith have wet towels delivered to them.

    India vs Australia Live Score: Unstoppable David Warner!

    India vs Australia Live Score: Warner is capitalising on this golden opportunity to score freely. With five fours and two sixes, the Australian opener is really cranking up the pressure on India. Shardul concedes two more boundaries to Warner in what’s turning out to be another costly over. Meanwhile, Smith is playing a more measured innings, but Australia’s run rate is approaching almost 5 runs per over. This is quite the turnaround considering they were struggling at 9/1 after the first 4 overs.

    India vs Australia Live Score: Warner looking ominous, raises 50-partnership with Smith

    India vs Australia Live Score: As soon as Sanjay Manjrekar mentioned on air what David Warner could have done to this bowling attack in his prime, he shows a glimpse of exactly that. Connects a half-pull, half-waft with aplomb and gets his second six, which brings up the 50-run partnership between him and Smith. Australia beginning to find their groove as they reach 58/1 after 13 overs.

  • Sep 22, 2023 02:23 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Ashwin to Warner – SIX

    India vs Australia Live Score: The first six of this match is the 100th of David Warner’s ODI career. After a super first over, Ashwin starts his second with an absolute gift. Drops it short and Warner has enough time to spank it over the long-on boundary. Good comeback as he follows it with four dot balls and a single. Ashwin slowly finding his rhythm The FIFTY also comes up for Australia.

    India vs Australia Live Score: DROPPED! Shreyas Iyer the culprit

    India vs Australia Live Score: Oh dear! What an opportunity missed by India as Shreyas Iyer spills a straightforward chance at mid-off. Shardul was on the verge of exacting revenge on Warner, who mistimed an aerial shot. Iyer simply needed to move slightly to his left, and although he reached the ball in time, he couldn’t hold on to the catch. Shardul could have another one of his Lord-like first over with another wicket, but it wasn’t to be. POOR

  • Sep 22, 2023 02:11 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Bowling change, but not the start Shardul Thakur expected

    India vs Australia Live Score: The first bowling change was inevitable following those taxing 8 overs from Bumrah and Shami. Shardul Thakur steps in, and within three balls, he concedes two boundaries – one sent thumping down the ground and another executed with a shuffle-cum-pull behind the wicket. Shardul struggles with his length, going slightly short, but he also manages to deceive Warner on two occasions. It’s a classic Shardul over.

  • Sep 22, 2023 02:07 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: FOUR! Slapped

    India vs Australia Live Score: Oh! That was absolutely clubbed from Smith. Flicks it off his pads disdainfully. BOLD, really BOLD from Smith to do that to Bumrah. As he bowls his fourth over in this maddening heat, it’s only natural for the pace to slightly diminish. He’s hovering around the 137 km/h mark. Australia’s score reaches 31/1 after 8 overs.

  • Sep 22, 2023 02:01 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: RUNS! Australia get busy

    India vs Australia Live Score: There’s been a shift in the scoring momentum as Smith and Warner make an effort to ignite the Australian innings. After Warner finally opened his account on the 7th delivery, he aggressively slashes outside off and collects a boundary, while Smith skilfully finds the gap for his initial four as well. The over yields ten runs – this is Shami’s third over, and he takes a moment to catch his breath near the boundary. The heat is intense, but he’s ready for his fourth over, and bowls a tight one – giving away just 1 run. Australia 21/1 after 7 overs

  • Sep 22, 2023 01:54 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Vintage Bumrah and Shami

    India vs Australia Live Score: It’s been quite a while since Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami have bowled in tandem with the new ball for India, and what a sight it is to witness these two in full swing again. Bumrah has delivered two consecutive maiden overs, while Shami has bowled one himself. Steve Smith and David Warner are taking their time to find their rhythm. There have been only two boundaries thus far, with one of them coming from FOUR byes.

  • Sep 22, 2023 01:44 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: MAIDEN for Bumrah to begin

    India vs Australia Live Score: Did you expect anything less? Bumrah and accuracy go hand-in-hand. Ask Steve Smith, who probably faced one of the best first overs of his career from India’s premier pacer just now. Bumrah beginning this series from where he left off in the Asia Cup. Absolutely spotless and gives away nothing. Australia 5/1 after 2 overs.

  • Sep 22, 2023 01:36 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: WICKET! EDGED and GONE

    India vs Australia Live Score: OUT! A breakthrough in the very first over as Shami dismisses the dangerous Mitchell Marsh. A dream beginning for India, who draw first blood. Shami delivers it full and right in the sweet spot, but Marsh’s approach seems a bit casual. His attempt at a free-flowing cover drive falls short, leading to an edge that Shubman Gill at first slip gratefully accepts. What an important wicket to secure, especially on a pitch like this.

  • Sep 22, 2023 01:34 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Shami comes steaming in

    India vs Australia Live Score: And the first delivery is spot on target. There’s a hint of swing on the second ball, and Australia gets off the mark. Mitchell Marsh confidently cuts it, securing his and Australia’s opening boundary. Shami then responds brilliantly, inducing an edge from Marsh on the very next delivery. It’s worth noting that Shami has featured in only two international games since the conclusion of the IPL prior to this match. Therefore, this game holds immense significance for him, especially with the World Cup knocking

    India vs Australia Live Score: The National Anthems are over and here we go…

    India vs Australia Live Score: Right then! The dress rehearsal is in full swing. As the cameras zoom in on the players after they passionately sing their respective national anthems, it’s impossible not to notice the copious amounts of sweat glistening on their faces. Mohali is enveloped in scorching and muggy weather, and the next four hours won’t merely assess their skills but also push their endurance to the limit.

  • Sep 22, 2023 01:22 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: What happened the last time Mohali hosted an IND vs AUS ODI

    India vs Australia Live Score: The year was 2019, and the setting was the fourth ODI of the series. India posted an imposing total of 358/9, thanks to Shikhar Dhawan’s splendid 143 and Rohit Sharma’s crisp 95. However, it turned out that even a nearly 360-run target wasn’t sufficient, as Australia successfully chased it down with over 2 overs to spare. Peter Handscomb delivered a scintillating century from the number 4 position, ably supported by Ashton Turner’s unbeaten 84 and Usman Khawaja’s 91. In the end, Australia secured victory in the contest by four wickets.

    Judging by the appearance of the pitch, it seems like this one won’t be much different. Aakash Chopra humorously dubbed this pitch as ‘NH-8,’ likening it to the highway that connects Delhi and Chandigarh.

    India vs Australia Live Score: ‘Mitchell Starc and Glenn Maxwell are not quite ready’

    India vs Australia Live Score: There you have it! From the horse’s mouth – Starc and Maxwell are yet to regain their full fitness, making way for Sean Abbott, Josh Inglis.

    Australia’s Playing XI: 1 David Warner, 2 Mitchell Marsh, 3 Steve Smith, 4 Marnus Labuschagne, 5 Cameron Green, 6 Josh Inglis (WK), 7 Marcus Stoinis, 8 Matthew Short, 9 Pat Cummins(c), 10 Sean Abbott, 11 Adam Zampa

    India vs Australia Live Score: KL Rahul wins TOSS and opts to…

    India vs Australia Live Score: As beautiful as the pitch looks for batting, India’s stand-in captain KL Rahul has opted to bowl after winning the toss. Rahul has informed the five changes India have made, leading with the return of Ravichandran Ashwin and Shreyas Iyer in the XI. Mohammed Shami has gotten a game ahead of Mohammed Siraj, and Suryakumar Yadav is in too. No Tilak Varma.

    India’s Playing XI: 1 India, 2 Shubman Gill, 3 Ruturaj Gaikwad, 4 Shreyas Iyer, 4 KL Rahul (Wicketkeeper/Captain), 5 Ishan Kishan, 6 Suryakumar Yadav, 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 Ravichandran Ashwin, 9 Shardul Thakur, 10 Jasprit Bumrah, 11 Mohammed Shami

  • Sep 22, 2023 12:58 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Visuals suggest Ashwin in IND Playing XI

    India vs Australia Live Score: The live visuals are currently capturing Ravichandran Ashwin in the midst of his warm-up routine. He’s flexing his arms and sending down a few deliveries on the practice pitches, strongly suggesting that the seasoned off-spinner is on the verge of getting the nod over Washington Sundar for a spot in India’s Playing XI. It’s worth noting that if Ashwin is selected, this would mark only his third appearance in an ODI in six years.

  • Sep 22, 2023 12:52 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Did you know? Bumrah has never dismissed Warner

    India vs Australia Live Score: Jasprit Bumrah has successfully dispatched numerous formidable batters of this generation, but there’s one modern-day great who has managed to elude his grasp: David Warner. It’s quite remarkable! In the 11 innings where Bumrah and Warner have crossed paths in ODIs, Bumrah has never managed to dismiss the Australian opener, and what’s more, Warner has clearly dominated this battle, accumulating 102 runs off Bumrah at an impressive strike-rate of 91.

  • Sep 22, 2023 12:47 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Indians HUDDLE UP!

    India vs Australia Live Score: The Team India players gather for a huddle, but there’s an unusual twist this time – no new India caps are being awarded. Every member of this squad has already made their ODI debuts, except for Ruturaj Gaikwad, who has only played in two ODIs. For him, this marks the start of a new journey. Unfortunately, he won’t be a part of the third ODI, but just imagine if he manages to deliver two solid performances in Mohali and Indore. No one wants to face that kind of dilemma.

  • Sep 22, 2023 12:12 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Suryakumar Yadav to bat at No.6

    India vs Australia Live Score: India head coach Rahul Dravid has made it clear that Suryakumar Yadav will remain in India’s World Cup squad despite his low returns in ODIs. The right-hander is not a first choice in the XI but has been picked as a backup for the No.6 slot. He is set to feature in the first two ODIs as the likes of Rohit, Kohli and Hardik are not there. This Australia series will be crucial for SKY and a final opportunity to silence the critics.

  • Sep 22, 2023 11:57 AM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Is there a case for Marnus Labuschagne in Australia’s World Cup squad?

    India vs Australia Live Score: Marnus Lanbuschagne was initially not a part of Australia’s World Cup squad, he still isn’t. But what he did while coming in as a concussion sub for Cameron Green has thrown him right in the mix, especially now that there is a huge doubt over Travis Head’s availability. Marnus smashed an unbeaten 80 and backed that up with a 124 in the second ODI to make a solid case for himself. His ability to tackle spinners will also go in favour of him.

  • Sep 22, 2023 11:50 AM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Ashwin or Sundar? Or both?

    India vs Australia Live Score: With no Kuldeep Yadav in the squad, an off-spinner is certain to lead India’s spin attack. Will that be Ashwin or Sundar? Or is there a case for both to feature in the XI? The chances for the latter are slim as India don’t have Hardik Pandya. They would not want to walk into an ODI with just two seamers. So it will boil down to Ashwin vs Sundar. In that case, Ashwin will get preference because of his experience and wicket-taking ability in the middle overs. Ashwin also has a stellar record against the left-handers and Australia have a few in their ranks.

  • Sep 22, 2023 11:34 AM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Will Australia take a gamble with Matthew Short?

    India vs Australia Live Score: One man’s loss is another’s gain, cruel but true. Travis Head was a certainty in Australia’s XI if he hadn’t fractured his hand. Now the left-hander is in a race against time to get fit for the latter part of the World Cup. What that has done is, opened up doors for young Victoria all-rounder Matthew Short. He is an opener, bats left-handed and bowls handy off-spinner. Australia could not have asked for a better like-for-like replacement for Head. But Short falls short in experience. He is yet to make his ODI debut and these three matches are the last chance if Australia want to have a look at him. Will they? Don’t think so in the first ODI as David Warner and Mitchell Marsh will bat at the top of the order. But don’t rule out the possibility of seeing him in the series.

  • Sep 22, 2023 11:13 AM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Is there anything left to prove for Ashwin?

    India vs Australia Live Score: The answer is no. And we are not the only ones saying this. Listen to India head coach Rahul Dravid or even captain Rohit Sharma for that matter to erase your doubts. India, in fact, the world knows what Ashwin brings to the table. Now it is up to the selectors and the team management how they want to use him or if at all they want to use him in the World Cup.

    Ashwin was not in India’s World Cup plans. His two ODIs in the last six years is the biggest proof of that but an injury to Axar Patel and the need to have an off-spin bowling all-rounder in the side for certain oppositions has paved his return. India still want Axar to be fit and ready, make no mistake but if he fails to regain fitness (chances of that are slim) then Ashwin will be ready.

    The bigger question, however, is should India pick Ashwin irrespective of Axar’s fitness? In that case, they will have to drop Shardul Thakur, their own seam bowler who offers something with the bat lower down the order. Will India go that way? The chances are slim but not impossible.

    India vs Australia Live Score: The curious case of Shreyas Iyer

    India vs Australia Live Score: It is safe to state that Shreyas Iyer does not have a friendly relationship with his back. In the last 12 months or so, a back injury has troubled him more than anything else. It first came to light during the Bangladesh series last year. After missing a few games, Iyer was back for a Test match against Australia only to aggravate the injury further. He was ruled out from the entire IPL and the West Indies tour. When he finally made a comeback for the Asia Cup after undergoing surgery on his back, he hurt it again during a warm-up session minutes before a Super 4 match against Pakistan. He hasn’t played any matches since then but has been attending practice sessions regularly. It will be interesting to see how he goes about his things in this series as he is an important part of India’s batting unit.

  • Sep 22, 2023 10:47 AM IST

    India vs Australia Live Score: Who will take Rohit and Kohli’s places?

    India vs Australia Live ScoreRohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are not available for the first two ODIs. Then who will open the batting with Shubman Gill? There is Ruturaj Gaikwad in the squad but he is there more as a backup, who will leave for the Asian Games after the second match. Ishan Kishan is the one who will partner Gill at the top of the order.

    It really isn’t possible to replace Kohli in ODIs but young Tilak Varma would like to use this opportunity to keep reminding the selectors that he should be the first option as a reserve during the World Cup. His ODI debut did not go according to plan in the Asia Cup match against Bangladesh but the left-hander has enough talent to turn it around. He is expected to bat No.3 today.

    India vs Australia Live Score: Questions in front of India

    India vs Australia Live Score: India functioned like a well-oiled machine in the Asia Cup. They got most of their answers during the course of their record-extending 8th Asia Cup title but like any champion side would say, they are far from being perfect. There are still certain gaps that need to be plugged. For those, these three ODIs against Australia are of utmost importance. Here are some of the burning questions that India face:

    • Is Shreyas Iyer fully fit to take the loads of a long tournament like World Cup?
    • What if Axar Patel is not fit before the first match of World Cup?
    • Should India think about bringing in an off-spinning all-rounder like Ashwin or Sundar irrespective of Axar’s availability? If yes then in place of whom?
    • Will Suryakumar Yadav play an important role in India’s World Cup plans? If yes then who sits out when he bats at No.6?

    India vs Australia Live Score: Starc, Maxwell out of first ODI

    India vs Australia Live Score: Australia captain Pat Cummins confirmed that fast bowler Mitchell Starc and all-rounder Glenn Maxwell won’t be available for the series opener in Mohali. Another player who won’t be available for today’s game is Ashton Agar. Both Maxwell and Agar are set to arrive in India only late on Friday. They should be available for the last ODI if not the the second one. Starc, who is yet to fully recover from his growing soreness, is certain to play the third ODI.

    India vs Australia Live Score: Injury concerns for India and Australia

    India vs Australia Live Score: Australia have had a major blow in the form of Travis Head. The destructive opening batter who also bowls decent off-spin, is likely to be ruled out of the World Cup with a fractured wrist. Australia have summoned youngster Matthew Short as Head’s like-for-like replacement. Cummins and Smith are also returning from minor injury concerns after missing the South Africa series.

    As far as India are concerned, the injury to Axar Patel will keep the management on their toes. The left-arm spin-bowling all-rounder suffered a quadriceps injury in an Asia Cup Super 4 match against Bangladesh and was not able to take part in the final against Sri Lanka. He has been provisionally named in India squad for the third ODI. Shreyas Iyer is another cricketer who is struggling with injuries. He hasn’t played a full match yet and will be looking to erase doubts over his fitness in this series.

    India vs Australia Live Score: With an eye on workload management before the World Cup, India have decided to rest captain Rohit Sharma, vice-captain Hardik Pandya, star batter Virat Kohli, and lead spinner Kuldeep Yadav for the first two ODIs of this three-match series against Australia. All of them will return for the final match. KL Rahul will lead India in the first two ODIs.

    India vs Australia Live Score 1st ODI in Mohali

    India vs Australia Live Score: Can an India vs Australia series ever be dull? Or feel unnecessary? NEVER! There are a few raised eyebrows over the timing of the three-match ODI series with barely a couple of weeks to go before the World Cup but players from both sides know that when it is India vs Australia, the stakes are always high. Hello and welcome to the live coverage of IND vs AUS 1st ODI at the PCA Stadium in Mohali.
