Hello and Welcome to our Live Blog of the 2nd ODI between India and Australia being played at the Holkar Stadium in Mohali.
Team India are hitting their strides at the correct time and will look to boost their confidence further with a series win against Australia. By contrast, Pat Cummins' men have some work to do after four ODI losses on the trot
The big news from the Indian camp is Jasprit Bumrah has not travelled with the team to Indore and has taken a short break instead. Mukesh Kumar has replaced him for the fixture
With Pat Cummins after the five-wicket loss in Mohali that Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Starc are unavailable, it will be interesting to see what changes they make for this game. Marcus Stoinis is one Aussie batter who desperately needs runs with a rut of almost 4 years now
Even as India have climbed to the top in all three formats in cricket, they have been equally impressive in Asian Games 2023, clinching five medals
Australia have won the toss and send India into bat. Surprisingly, Steve Smith will lead them as Pat Cummins and Mitchell Marsh have been ruled out
Another debut for Australia as Spencer Johnson gets his first ODI cap
India playing XI: Shubman Gill, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul(w/c), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Prasidh Krishna
Australia playing XI: David Warner, Matthew Short, Steven Smith(c), Marnus Labuschagne, Josh Inglis, Alex Carey(w), Cameron Green, Sean Abbott, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood, Spencer Johnson
It's worth remembering that Steve Smith's captaincy inspired Australia to a series win in India last time. Can he help them keep the series alive today?
Do Australia know their opening pair ahead of the ODI World Cup? Should David Warner and Matthew Short succeed today could they be opening the innings at the World Cup?

India (399/5) Post Their Highest Score Against Australia In ODI Cricket. Shreyas Iyer (105), Shubman Gill (104), Suryakumar Yadav (72*)
Shreyas Iyer: "My focus was on cramps, wasn't allowing me to hold firm. I was almost out caught and bowled, I realised my top hand wasn't working. After that, I was tying to smash every ball, I felt that I got the team in the right place. I was happy throughout the innings. My mindset was to play the ball in the V. I wanted to time it. I was experiencing variable bounce.Thankfully we were able to take that momentum towards our side. Shubman and I, we played a pretty decent knock and laid a strong platform. The other batsmen came in and expressed themselves. I got a great start, I was trying to play the ball on its merit and Shubman took the charge. It worked out for the team. Every individual stepped up. When I went into bat, there was variable bounce. Pretty hard to judge. I think we have a defendable total."
Australia off the mark in style
Shami to Matthew Short, FOUR! Swinging delivery leaving the right-hander is driven through the covers to get Australia off the mark.
WICKET! Matthew Short c Ashwin b Prasidh 9 (8 balls). Hits a length ball outside off-stump towards third man where Ashwin takes a sharp catch. Australia 9/1 (1.2 overs)
WICKET! Steve Smith c Gill b Krishna 0 (1 ball). Wide delivery outside off-stump, the batter has a flash at it but gets a thick outside edge. The ball flies towards first slip where Gill takes a stunning catch. Australia 9/2 (1.3 overs)
Rain stops play in Indore. Australia 56/2 (9 overs) need 344 runs more vs India (399/5)
The rain is quite heavy at the moment and the entire ground has been covered. The match has already started to lose overs
The rain has stopped in Indore and the covers are being taken off
The match will resume at 8.35 pm if there is no more rain in Indore. Australia's target has been revised to 317 in 33 overs which means they need another 261 runs from 24 overs
Shardul Thakur will restart the proceedings with the ball for India with Marnus Labuschagne on strike.
WICKET! Marnus Labuschagne b Ashwin 27 (31 balls)
WICKET! David Warner lbw b Ashwin 53 (39 balls)
Leftie Warner started batting right-handed against Ashwin to counter the spin on the pitch. He hit a four with the new stance but was eventually trapped in front by Ashwin. Replays however, showed that Warner got an inside-edge but didn't review the decision and walked off the field.
