With Indian opener Shubman Gill and opener Shreyas Iyer giving the team the perfect start, it was Suryakumar Yadav’s devastating performance that guided India to a massive total of 399/5 against Australia in the second ODI at the Holkar Stadium in Indore on September 24.
Meanwhile, after winning the toss, Australia chose to bowl first. However, it didn’t go her way. Although India lost Rituraj Gaikwad in the fourth over to Josh Hazlewood, India’s Gill and Iyer reduced the innings to full and India crossed the 200-run mark by 30 runs.

Gill (104 off 97 balls) continued his sensational run with his fifth ODI hundred of the year, while Iyer also scored a century (105 off 90 balls).
After that, skipper KL Raheel (52 off 38 balls) and Ishan Kishan (31 off 18 balls) kept the momentum going. But it was SKY (72 not off 37 balls) who gave all the adrenaline rush to his fans. In the last 10 overs, India have made 103 runs, resulting in their highest ever total against Australia in ODIs.
Earlier this year, India ended with a 395-run win against New Zealand, beating the visitors.
Meanwhile, chasing 400 runs in 300 balls looked tough for the Australian team, as they lost two quick wickets to Indian spinner Prasidh Krishna. Later, the wicket kept falling like a pack of cards. Apart from David Warner (53 off 39 balls), no other batsman could hold on for long.
For India, Ravichandran Ashwin picked three wickets, while Ravindra Jadeja and Prasidh Krishna took two each. As of the submission of the report, Australia had scored 188/8 in 25 overs. They need 129 runs in 48 balls to win according to the D/L method.
