Australia Crushed India and won by 10 Wickets. Before openers Mitchell Marsh and Travis Head smashed quick fifties to finish off a knockout. The performance against India and draw the series at 1-1, Mitchell Starc demonstrated the art of new-ball swing bowling. India bowled out for 117 in just 26 overs in Visakhapatnam. An unprecedented defeat in terms of the number of balls still in play.
Marsh and Head given opportunity to bat without constrained by the scoreboard thanks to Starc’s five for 53, his ninth five-for in ODIs. Marsh reached fifty in 28 balls before Head did so in 29 balls. And Australia completed the chase of the objective in in 11 overs.
Starc successfully induced pitches to swing in and angle across. To right-handed batters in equal measure. Sean Abbott and Nathan Ellis were able to team up with him and run through the lower middle order as a result of his performance at the top. The three seamers shared all ten wickets, and the Australian bowlers finished their shift in two hours and 20 minutes.
Starc Five Wicket Haul

Starc enticed Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma to drive away from their bodies when he got the deliveries to angle across, but both of them were cheaply bowled as a result. A repeat of his departure from the Mumbai ODI, Gill was the first to depart. Out for a duck in the first over after chasing a big and wide delivery and driving to point. Ishan Kishan was replaced by Rohit, who was dismissed in the fifth over. By using leg-side flicks. He had advanced to 13, but when a wide ball came his way, he swung forcefully and edged to first slip.
Surya walk to dugout with an amazing delievry Crushed India
Suryakumar Yadav tried to make up for his first-ball duck in the first ODI, but Starc again bowled him lbw for another golden duck. KL Rahul stepped in to avoid a hat-trick, repeating the first ODI. He succeeded but could not last. On 9, Starc trapped the half-centurion from the previous game lbw with another inswinging delivery that missed the line.
India needed a recovery job at 48 for 4, but none came. Abbott bounced a length ball, Hardik Pandya prodded at it, and Steven Smith took a fantastic one-handed diving catch at first slip to rattle them further. Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja failed again to revive the innings. Kohli was trapped lbw by Ellis on 31 after he swiped across the line to a full delivery and didn’t appeal. Ellis then saw Jadeja edging to Alex Carey. India was on the mat at 91 for 7, and the audience was silent.
Axar Patel’s undefeated 29 gave India triple-digits. He and Kuldeep Yadav were cautious as India passed 100. Axar realised the end was near when Abbott quickly defeated Kuldeep and Mohammad Shami. As Starc rattled his off stump, No. 11 Mohammed Siraj became Starc’s fifth victim.
Mitchel Marsh amazing knock Crushed India
Marsh and Head prevented India’s comeback. Head’s 30-ball 51 was impressive, but Marsh’s 36-ball 66 was better.
Siraj and Shami went short after their complete deliveries were taken in the first few overs. The openers handled the short ball well and took advantage of the optimum hitting conditions before twilight.
Marsh drove, punched, and pulled to his second consecutive fifty after his 81 in the first ODI. Head’s boundaries were streakier, but his four successive fours against Shami in the sixth over after Australia hit 50 were the highlight. Marsh hit three sixes in a Hardik over before ending the game on the 11th.
Wednesday’s Chennai ODI decides the series. Australia will quietly assume they’re favourites in the last game after troubleshooting India’s batters in these two games.
