The first battle of the ODI series went in the favor of the hosts. The Adelaide Oval will now play host to the 2nd ODI between Australia and India. While the hosts would look to seal the series, the visitors will be itching to stay alive by winning. It’s going to be a do or die game as far as India is concerned. Keep reading to find out Australia vs India 2nd ODI Match Prediction.

The SCG ODI turned out to be a near-perfect match for Australia. They batted first after winning the toss on a batting-friendly surface. The Indian new ball bowlers, as well as the spinners, did well initially. But Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh consolidated the innings. When they seemed like falling short of a competitive total, some fireworks from Peter Handscomb and Marcus Stoinis took them to 288/5.

In reply, India got off to the worst possible start. They lost 3 wickets for just 4 runs that also included the wicket of Virat Kohli. Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni began to solidify the chase but the required run-rate kept climbing. Despite the stand of 137 and Rohit’s brilliant 133, India fell short by 34 runs. The visitors would have learned from the mistakes and one can expect them to bounce back strong.
