Ind vs Aus: India got worst defeat in ODI history, Australia crushed by 10 wickets


Visakhapatnam Mitchell Marsh (66 not out) and Travis Head (51 not out) scored explosive fifties after Mitchell Starc (53/5) was left-arm fast bowler, Australia beat India by 10 runs in the second ODI on Sunday. Trampled the wicket and made the three-match series 1-1.

Batting first after losing the toss, India were all out for 117 runs, which is their lowest score in ODI cricket against Australia. Australia achieved the target of 118 runs in just 11 overs.

This is the worst defeat in ODI history for India. The team was defeated by Australia by ten wickets in the second ODI. The team lost with 234 balls remaining. In that sense, it is the biggest defeat in our ODI history. The previous record was of 212 balls. New Zealand beat us in Hamilton in 2019. The team has lost by 10 wickets for the sixth time.

From India, Virat Kohli scored maximum 31 runs in 35 balls with the help of four fours, while Akshar Patel remained unbeaten after scoring 29 runs in 29 balls. Seven batsmen of the host team could not even touch double figures.

Coming out to open the Australian innings, Marsh and Head shared an unbeaten 121-run partnership off 66 balls to give the Kangaroos victory. This is Australia’s biggest win against India. Earlier, the Kangaroos had defeated India by 10 wickets in Mumbai in 2020, though then Australia took 37.4 overs to reach the target.

Marsh scored a blistering 66 off 36 balls with six fours and six sixes in Australia’s historic win, while Head scored 51 off 30 balls with 10 fours.

It is also Australia’s third biggest win in ODI cricket. The third and deciding match of the series will be played on March 22 at the Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

Starc was the hero of Australia’s huge victory, taking five wickets for 53 runs in eight overs, capitalizing on the swing found in Visakhapatnam. He has taken five wickets for the ninth time in his ODI career. Sean Abbott took three wickets for 23 runs in six overs while Nathan Ellis took two wickets for 13 runs in five overs.

Australia won the toss and elected to bowl keeping in mind the rain-soaked Visakhapatnam pitch for two days. Starc, justifying the decision of captain Steve Smith, returned Shubman Gill to the pavilion on the score of zero runs in the first over.

Rohit Sharma hit Starc and Cameron Green for a boundary each but he was caught at slip trying to hit the ball going outside off-stump. Stark also lbw out Suryakumar Yadav on the very next ball.

He also troubled Kohli with his swing, but Kohli kept the innings at one end, displaying brilliant defence. An over before the end of the powerplay, KL Rahul (09) fell to Starc, while Abbott removed Hardik Pandya in the 10th over thanks to a sensational catch by Smith.

For the first time since the semi-finals of the World Cup 2019, India had lost four or more wickets in 10 overs. Meanwhile, Kohli strengthened the Indian innings and got the support of Ravindra Jadeja from the other end. There was a 22-run partnership between the two for the sixth wicket when Ellis got Kohli out lbw. Ellis also returned Jadeja (39 balls, 16 runs) to the pavilion in his next over.

After the end of India’s batting, Akshar played some good shots but the tail-enders could not support him. Abbott made Kuldeep Yadav (17 balls, four runs) and Mohammed Shami walk on consecutive balls. Akshar hit Starc for two sixes in the 26th over, but on the last ball of this over, Starc bowled Mohammad Siraj to end the Indian innings.
