Editor’s Pick (ODI): India - Australia

There will always be those cynics who go “India winning in India. Home ground. What’s the big deal?” Well for starters - India Beat Sri Lanka IN Sri Lanka. This team is actually doing well. And secondly, they are playing Australia. So don’t take away the hard work and credit away from the Men In Blue please.

India won the second ODI. It’s a nice habit I tell you. Winning. I like. India Beat Australia by 50 runs. Is there any part of that sentence that does not give you goosebumps? You do not need flashy words like India Thrash the Aussies or Deafening defeat and thumping victory. A simple sentence will do the trick just the same, thank you very much. Virat Kohli walked away with the man of the match award with his brilliant 92 off 107 deliveries.  He would have loved a century. Us too. Rahane gave him company with an equally good score rate and added 55 to the board. Australia saw India’s 252 but could add only 202.
The Aussies needed a partnership and bad. That could have made a difference. Ask Stoinis. His 62 along with Captain’s 59 did not amount to much in the end.

India lead the series now 2-0. The third ODI takes place at Indore. India hit the highest score of the stadium (415) against West Indies. That’s the good part. The part when you have to worry - It is raining cats and dogs there. The curator of the pitch is very worried. He said the team of 80 odd people are working to ensure that if there is no rain, there will be play. In a country that does not see much rain, it almost hurts to ask for the sun. But for the sake of cricket …. Oh well.

The buzz around the game is high. India has never lost a match there. This stadium brings a queue of two km to buy tickets. The tickets for the third ODI were sold out in a few hours. Let’s take a look at our lineup

Ajinkya Rahane

Chennai beats Mumbai and clinch thriller

It is not just about coming back. It is about the impact you make in the process. And Chennai team knows how to with a bang.  The Chennai team beat the home team by one wicket in what was an absolute sit-at-the-end-of-the-chair thriller. It was one of the best chases the tournament has seen and it most definitely won't be the last. The player who made the difference in the end - Jadhav - literally came back from the dead after retiring hurt to take his team to the finish line by hitting the ball in style with a six and a four.  Batting on one leg and playing an absolutely unbelievable shot, this player leveled the scores first with a six and finished the match with a four.  Key Points  MI has never won their opener since 2013. This was Chennai's first win against MI in an opener of this T20 League  DRS used in the league for the first time  Bravo : It was a great team effort. I want to dedicate this win to the CSK fan, they have waited long for
