On second day of India v/s Australia ODI in Brisbane India had set a run target of 309 for Australia. The host cricket team came out as winners once again as Australia smashed a record 309 for three at Gabba to take a 2-0 lead against India in the five-match ODI series. Rohit Sharma’s century went in vain for the visitors again as Aaron Finch, Shaun Marsh and George Bailey hit brisk fifties.
“It seems we have to score in excess of 330 runs to win a match. That will put a lot of pressure on the batsmen to score more,” Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni said after the match, adding: “The morale is good but we need to play some more shots.”
“It is very disappointing to score a hundred and finish on the losing side. It’s the team that matters,” Rohit said after the match.
The next match in the series is in Melbourne tomorrow.
Good luck India!
