India vs Australia, Live Score 1st ODI: Usman Khawaja Departs After Scoring Fifty

India vs Australia, Live Score 1st ODI: Usman Khawaja Departs After Scoring Fifty


Following the first-ever Test series win Down Under, India would look to make a positive start in the three-match One Day International, beginning in Sydney on Saturday. Ahead of the start of the limited-overs series, all-rounder Hardik Pandya and top-order batsman KL Rahul provided a big distraction for the Indian team by making “inappropriate” comments on women at a popular television chat show. In the build-up to the first ODI, India skipper Virat Kohli underlined that the team management is still waiting for a decision to be made regarding a ban or punishment to be meted out to the two players. The three match series is a good chance to get the combination right for the much awaited World Cup to be played in England. Several limited-over players returned to the squad. Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni and Yuzvendra Chahal joined the ODI squad and would like to contribute handsomely along with skipper Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, who were present in the Test series.

The top-order seemed settled with the likes of Kohli, Rohit, Rayudu and Dhawan. The team has Dhoni and Jadhav who could turn the match at will. In case Pandya is left out, Ravindra Jadeja will probably replace the Baroda all-rounder and partner left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav in India’s five-pronged bowling attack, with Kedar Jadhav fulfilling any part-time bowling duties if needed.

Much attention will also be on former India captain Dhoni who will like get some runs under his belt as he is expected to be one of the vital cogs in India’s campaign at this year’s ODI World Cup. The World Cup winning skipper has managed 275 runs in his last 20 ODIs at an average 25 without a half-century. The worrying aspect is Dhoni’s strike-rate of 71.42, which is remarkably lower than his ODI career strike-rate of 87.89.

FOUR! Brilliantly timed! Short ball by the young Khaleel this time, Marsh rocks onto his back foot and pulls it away towards mid-wicket for a boundary. Brings up his 13th ODI 50 for Shaun Marsh. He has been in great form in this format.

Khaleel Ahmed to Peter Handscomb

Length delivery on odd, Handscomb drives it towards the fielder at deep cover for a single.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Shaun Marsh

A dot to end but a good over for Australia, consecutive good overs for them. 20 from the last 2. Back of a length on off, it is kept out.

Handscomb shuffles right across and works it through mid-wicket for a run.

On the pads, Marsh now works it through square leg for a run.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Peter Handscomb

Smart now! Gets two boundaries. Now he guides it down to third man for a run. Dots is what Australia do not want at the moment.
