Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: India vs Australia, 2nd ODI, Nagpur

Virat Kohli has registered his 50th ODI fifty

India struggling for control. None of the bowlers have managed to get going without straying down the leg or bowling loose deliveries. Finch and Khawaja have capitalised on the mistakes to give Australia a flying start. 82/0 after 14.

Steady start for Australia. Bumrah and Shami have not hit their lines and lengths consistently. That has allowed both Finch and Khawaja to get off to a risk-free start in the chase.

Nathan Coulter-Nile finishes off India's innings on 250, going through the defsense of Jasprit Bumrah. India couldn't bat the 50 overs but they would be well aware that on this wicket, this can be a stiff chase for the Australians.

Pat Cummins strikes again. Trying to shuffle across, Kuldeep Yadav's leg stump is shattered. Fourth wicket for the pacer.

KOHLI OUT! For an innings where Virat Kohli entertained with some delightful yet risk-free strokemaking, he has thrown his wicket away with a lazy pull, holing out to the fielder at deep mid wicket. Will this one wicket leave India 30 short of the total they could have possibly reached?

Ravindra Jadeja's scratchy but effective innings has come to an end. Looking to hit over the top he mistimes and holes out to the fielder in the deep. The seventh wicket stand ends on 67.

Century No 40. 103* off 107 balls. Virat Kohli. He can put this among his finest ODI centuries and it would be as worthy as any.

RECORD ALERT Ravindra Jadeja may have played a second fiddle so far in this partnership with Virat Kohli, but a very effective one. In the process, he has become only the third Indian after Kapil Dev and Sachin Tendulkar to score 2000 runs and take 150 wickets in ODIs.

Virat Kohli has single-handedly led India's charge with the bat today and taken them past the 200-run mark, which can be highly competitive on this wicket. 11 overs left in the innings.

TWO IN TWO! Adam Zampa strikes again. MS Dhoni, plays with the turn and edges one to the slip fielder. Easy catch.

Adam Zampa, who has been relatively expensive today, finally gets his first moment of success in the match. Kedar Jadhav drives on the up and gives a catch to the fielder at extra cover. India lose their fifth wicket.

And just as we were talking, Vijay Shankar has been run out - for the second time in two innings, both times in his 40s. An innings that promised so much, has been cut short, run out while backing up. A much-needed wicket for Australia.

Vijay Shankar and Virat Kohli's attacking partnership has taken the initiative completely away from Australia. The partnership has yielded 81 off only 71 balls so far.

The one thing that has stood out in India's innings so far has been Virat Kohli's batting. The Indian skipper has marched along to his 50th ODI fifty. And if history is anything to go by, the last five times he stroked a fifty at home, he went on to notch up a century. Not a good news for Australia.

Nathan Lyon come in to the attack and strikes in his first over. Ambati Rayudu is trapped legbefore. He goes for a review but in vain. Third wicket down. Even as Virat Kohli si going strong from one end, Australia would be happy with the start they have got.

The pace of India's innings has dropped slightly after Shikhar Dhawan's dismissal, especially Ambati Rayudu. Nonetheless, India have crossed the 50 run mark in the 13th over.

Glenn Maxwell strikes! Shikhar Dhawan misses a straight delivery and is trapped legbefore. The umpire turns down the appeal but Australia take a review, and are successful with their decision.

Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli, even though early in their innings, have already stroked some gorgeous boundaries. India on the move.

A reason to worry?

Pat Cummins has struck in the first over! Rohit Sharma looks to slash and holes out to the fielder at third man, registering his first duck in India.

Surprise, surprise! Aaron Finch has decided to field after winning the toss. The pitch is only going to deteriorate further in the second innings. Virat Kohli agrees. He is backing his batsmen to do well against the spinners. Shaun Marsh and Nathan Lyon return to the side in place of Jason Behrendorff and Ashton Turner.

India are unchanged.

"The average score here is 292 but today might be different," says Murali Karthik after a pitch filled with cracks greet him and Sunil Gavaskar when they give a pitch report. A big day for the spinners.

Hello and welcome to the second one-dayer between India and Australia. Having won the two T20s, Australia suffered their maiden loss of the tour to India in the opening ODI. In a low-scoring encounter, barring in bits, Australia looked far from the outfit that they would want to be at the world cup. Can they turn things around? We have to wait and watch.
