India outplay Australia by 50 runs to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series at the Eden Gardens on Thursday. Headline of India win was Kuldeep Yadav’s hat-trick who became the third Indian bowler ever to take a ha-trick in the format. Before him, Kapil Dev and Chetan Sharma achieved the feat. India spinners put the hosts on top after Australia staged a brief recovery with Steve Smith-Travis Head stand. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was brilliant with the new ball and returned to add one more wicket towards the end of the innings. Earlier, after electing to bat, India rode on Virat Kohli’s 92 and Ajinkya Rahane’s 55 to manage 252 in 50 overs. The hosts didn’t get the late surge they would have liked but the runs proved enough on the day. (Full Scorecard)
