Ind vs Aus 2nd ODI Highlights: Indian bowlers delivered when it mattered to fashion a narrow eight-run victory against Australia in the second ODI after skipper Virat Kohli conjured up a resolute hundred in testing conditions. Pacer Vijay Shankar scalped the last two Australian batsmen in the final over in which Australia needed to score 11 runs for a series-levelling win. With this win, India has taken a 2-0 lead.
Earlier, India were all out for 250 courtesy captain Virat Kohli’s 40th ODI century. He was, however, dismissed on 116 after which Australia made light work of the tail. An encouraging sign for India was the maturity with which Vijay Shankar went about stabilising a faltering Indian innings and gave Kohli time to settle into the innings.

Finch on the edge
That drive may have been a positive sign but since then both Bumrah and Shami have flirted with Finch's outside edge. Bumrah actually got the edge but it went fine for four. Shane Warne reckons that tonight's the night for the Aussie captain.
I think tonight will be the night Aaron Finch turns the corner & finds his form as class is permanent & form is temporary. Finch is an excellent captain & if Aust are to win the WC, they need finch as skipper and in form !— Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) March 5, 2019
Very encouraging that from Aaron Finch. Shami pitched this one up and Finch takes a big stride accross the line and drives it gloriously through the covers.
And they are back
Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja open the batting for Australia, Mohammed Shami with the new ball. Can the Australian captain break his rut?
