India vs Australia 2017 Score 1st ODI: Choosing to bat first, India recovered well from the early blows to post a total of 281 runs from their overs. At one stage the team was struggling at 11/3 but Hardik Pandya and MS Dhoni stitched a good partnership in the middle overs to fight back for the hosts. Bhuvneshwar Kumar too made a useful contribution down the order. It was a disastrous start for the hosts. Ajinkya Rahane got out cheaply followed by Virat Kohli and Manish Pandey. Even though these two teams do not share a history of India and Pakistan, their rivalry has only grown over the years, especially since Virat Kohli and Steve Smith took charge of their respective sides. The Indian cricket team is in top form after demolishing Sri Lanka across all formats. On the other hand, the Australian team had suffered a heartbreaking loss against Bangladesh recently but managed to draw the series. Most players in the visitors’ squad are regular IPL performers and have enough experience of playing in Indian conditions.

Match Update: Hardik Pandya came to India’s rescue after the top ordered surrendered. He stitched a good partnership with Dhoni. The score is 281/7 after 50 overs. After interruption due to rain, revised target for Australia is 164 in 21 overs.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar – 32 (30)

5:24 PM: OUT! Gone, Dhoni departs. David Warner takes the catch. This time the former Indian skipper failed to connect it and went up high. Good catch. Dhoni departs for 79.

5:22 PM: SIX! Dhoni at his best! Dances down the wicket and smashes it over the long off fielder.

5:21 PM: Final over of the inning. Faulkner has the ball, Dhoni on strike. Starts with a boundary. It’s a NO BALL too.

5:20 PM: Not to forget, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has made a very important contribution as well. He is on 28 right now.

5:17 PM: India have done really to get here. At one stage they were struggling to go past 200. This is game on.

5:14 PM: SIX! MS Dhoni gets a move on, smashes it over the cover fielder. It’s 50-run partnership between these two.

5:08 PM: Fifty! for MS Dhoni, 66th of his ODI career and a brilliant one. Scoring wasn’t that easy today but he hung in.

5:04 PM: Bhuvi has raced his way to 22 from 19 balls. What a knock this turning out to be.

5:01 PM: Last 30 balls of the inning. This is going to be an interesting battle between bat and ball.

4:57 PM: FOUR! Bhuvi smashes Cummins for a boundary. These are very useful runs.

4:56 PM: Slowly but steadily, Dhoni has made his way to 47 runs from 70 balls. If he stays in till the last over, that strike rate will go up.

4:52 PM: That’s the end of Zampa’s overs. He gave away 66 runs from his 10 overs. A decent spell despite some serious hitting by Pandya.

4:50 PM: FOUR! Bhuvi joins the party. That was a juicy full toss and all he had to do was put it away.

4:48 PM: MS Dhoni holds the key now. 48 balls are left in this inning and ideally, India would be looking at another 60-65 runs.

4:45 PM: Bhuvneshwar Kumar walks in to bat. He scored a half-century against Sri Lanka and would be high in confidence.

4:43 PM: OUT! Heartbreak for fans. Hardik Pandya departs for 83, Adam Zampa has the last laugh.

4:40 PM: 52 runs have come in the last 5 overs. That is some brilliant cricket.

4:36 PM: SIX! Monstrous hit by Pandya, puts it out of the ground. He moves on to 77. That’s also his highest ODI score.

4:33 PM: FOUR! Slightly short and Pandya smashes it past the mid-wicket fielder. He is on fire.

4:30 PM: Interesting fact: Pandya has a strike rate of 211 after he reaches his 50. So, we might be up for a show today.

4:27 PM: FOUR! Another boundary from Pandya’s bat. He is playing with the Australian bowlers right now.

4:25 PM: Make it three sixes in a row. Hardik Pandya scores fifty in style, smashes 24 runs from Zampa over.

4:22 PM: FOUR! Pandya clears the front foot and smashes it over the top of the fielder. Follows it with a huge six.

4:20 PM: India – 148/5 (36)

Hardik Pandya – 35 (45)

MS Dhoni – 28 (54)

4:10 PM: Stoinis to Dhoni, 1 run, back of a length and outside off, Dhoni uses the pace of Stoinis to his advantage and directs it down to third man.

4:03 PM: Zampa to Pandya, 1 run, tossed-up leg break outside off, Pandya clears his front leg and swishes it down to long-off.

3:59 PM:  Despite the situation India is in, Hardik Pandya has been really positive. He is going after the poor balls. That’s the way to go.

3:50 PM: The scoring rate is on the slower side. This partnership is of 31 runs from 45 balls.

3:43 PM: The partnership between Dhoni and Pandya is of 29 runs from 36 balls.

3:29 PM: 100 is up for India in the 24th over. James Faulkner is back into the attack.

3:19 PM: OUT! Kedar Jadhav is gone for 40. It is just getting worse for India.

3:13 PM: 6 runs per over from here will take India to 260 but even that isn’t going to easy.

3:05 PM: What has happened because of the early blows is that India’s scoring rate has gone down. The batsmen haven’t really got going.

2:58 PM: MS Dhoni is the new man in. He will have to bat till the end.

2:55 PM: OUT! Can’t get worse than this. Rohit Sharma departs for 28, poor shot!

2:50 PM: The partnership between these two is of 53 runs from 62 balls now.

2:40 PM: 50 is up for India and Rohit Sharma is looking in a good touch. He has found an able partner in Kedar Jadhav.

2:34 PM: After initial Coulter-Nile effect, India now recovering and eyeing towards a decent total.

2:29 PM: India is 41 for 3 after 12 overs. Rohit Sharma and Kedar Jadhav at the crease.

2:26 PM: NO BALL! Faulkner to Jadhav, Jadhav races down the track, Faulkner drags his length back and cramps the batsman for room. He might have eked out an inside edge onto the pad. Faulkner’s front foot is on the line.

2:23 PM: This top-order falter from India takes my mind back to the 2012 Chennai ODI between India and Pakistan. The ball darted around in the early exchanges, and India were reduced to 29 for 5 before that man MS Dhoni led a recovery.

2:20 PM: Coulter-Nile to Jadhav, no run, back of a length and outside off, Jadhav stylishly late-cuts to backward point.

2:17 PM: Faulkner to Jadhav, 1 run, an uppish flick from off stump, but placed to the right of mid-on.

2:15 PM:  James Faulkner comes in to attack and Rohit on the first balls the it to the boundary line.

2:10 PM: India will have to bat really from here on to get to a respectable total. Remember, they don’t have Axar Patel in the lower order today.

2:04 PM: Kedar Jadhav is the new man in. He gets off the mark with a four. It has been a fine spell of fast bowling.

2:02 PM: OUT! One more down, Manish Pandey departs for 0 as well. Nathan Coulter Nile is on fire, the third wicket for him.

2:00 PM: OUT! Another massive blow to India, Virat Kohli is out for a duck. The Indian captain departs without disturbing the scoreboard.

1:52 PM: OUT! Big wicket for the Aussies. Pat Cummins gets rid of Ajinkya Rahane.

1:47 PM: NO BALL! From Pat Cummins. That’s a crime in ODIs. It’s a FREE HIT!

1:43 PM: Six runs from that last over by Pat Cummins. The ball is coming onto the bat nicely. We should be up for a high-scoring encounter.

1:41 PM: Meanwhile, Hilton Cartwright is making his debut for the visitors. He was given the ODI cup by none other than Brett Lee.

1:38 PM: A good over by Nathan Coulter Nile. Only 1 run from it. But, no sign of movement yet.

1:34 PM: India – 3/0 (1 over)

Rohit Sharma – 2 (5)

Ajinkya Rahane – 1 (1)

1:32 PM: India is off the mark. The first run comes from Ajinkya Rahane’s bat.

1:31 PM: Pat Cummins will take the new ball for Australia.

1:30 PM: We are live! The players are out in the middle. The Australian team is in a huddle. Rohit Sharma and Ajiknya Rahane will open the batting.

1:24 PM: India is going into the match with two wrist spinners. It is certainly an aggressive approach by Virat Kohli.

1:22 PM: In case you missed the toss, we have you covered:

1:15 PM: So the debate regarding India’s middle order is also settled for now. Manish Pandey will bat at 4 while Kedar Jadhav slots in at number 6.
