India vs Australia, 1st ODI: The first match of the ongoing three-match ODI series between India and Australia is being played today at Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali, from 1:30 pm. KL Rahul, who is leading the Indian team in the absence of Rohit Sharma, won the toss and decided to bowl first. In reply, the Australian team scored 276 runs at the loss of 10 wickets in the stipulated 50 overs. The men in blue need 277 runs to win the first ODI match.
David Warner, the Australian team’s opener, scored the most runs. He scored 52 runs in 53 balls with the help of six fours and two sixes, the 29th of his ODI career. Apart from him, Steve Smith scored 48 runs before being bowled by Mohammed Shami on a beautifully played ball. Australian captain Pat Cummins scored 21 runs in nine balls, including two fours and a six, bringing the Australian team’s innings total to 276 runs.
Mohammed Shami took five wickets
Mohammed Shami, who did not get a place in the playing eleven in Asia Cup 2023, bowled brilliantly against Australia and took five wickets for 51 runs in 10 overs. For the first time, any bowler has taken five wickets in Mohali. Apart from him, Jasprit Bumrah took one wicket. Ashwin, who was returning to the team after a long time, also took a wicket.
The Indian team needs 277 runs in 50 overs to win the first ODI match. This target may seem even bigger to the Indian team in the absence of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Hardik Pandya. Now it will be interesting to see whether such senior players as Shubham Gill, Rituraj Gaikwad and Suryakumar Yadav contribute to the team’s victory.
