India vs Australia 2nd ODI 

India faces Australia in the second ODI at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. India will be eager to clinch a win and level the series 1-1 whereas Australia would love to extend their lead with another win followed by the one in Pune on 13th.

Australia was certainly a better side at Pune and deserved a win. Almost everything went wrong for India in the first ODI. Bowling looked pretty average sans some good spells from R Ashwin and Yuvraj Singh. Chasing a 300 plus score, Indians could reach 232 only with one of the best batting line ups playing at home. Skipper Dhoni expressed disappointment on the batting performance as he saw lack in partnership developments and selection of wrong shots by the batsmen. Hopefully the batting stars click and we see a spirited performance in the second ODI. Bowling leaked 300 plus runs but they can't be blamed much considering flat wickets here in India.

Australia got a flying start with 110 runs partnership between Finch and Hughes. Finch has been a consistent scorer for Australia and he would love the batting friendly conditions here in India. Skipper Bailey was magnificient with 85 runs innings that helped Australia cross the 300 runs mark.  As far as their bowling is concerned, it was simply superb with all bowlers conceding less than run a ball. Faulkner took three wickets and he was pick of the bowler for them. Only Doherty went wicket less in that match from the Australian bowling line up.

Jaipur match could be a high scoring one as the pitch supports batsmen and it will provide some help to the spinners as well. Eyes would be set on likes of Dhawan, Kohli and Raina who could capitalise on the batting friendly conditions. It would be helpful for India if Rohit Sharma can also add more runs as he has shown some sparkling form recently in CLt20. We can expect fireworks from Austrlian batsmen too. Aaron Finch is well known for his hard hitting batting. Bailey too can contribute well as he is in good form.

If India losses here, it would be hard for them to cover the gap of losses. On the other hand Australia will stress hard on another win. If Australia could win this series 6-1, they can take the top spot in ICC ODI rankings. Can they do it? Or will the world champions bounce back hard to stop them?  Let us wait and watch as Jaipur hosts another match that promises to be full of quality cricket.
