Stay updated on the latest happenings of the 1st ODI match between India and Australia at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium with live scores and commentary. KL Rahul’s remarkable half-century has put India in a winning position, turning around the game from a tricky situation. The visitors, on the other hand, were off to a strong start with a promising innings, but faltered in the middle overs, failing to capitalize on the opportunity.
India had a tough start to their batting with the dismissal of Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav in the first 11 overs, leaving them struggling to maintain momentum. However, the captain, Hardik Pandya, and KL Rahul, played an essential role in bringing stability to the Indian chase and getting the hosts back on top. The wicket of Pandya gave Australia a chance to come back into the game, and they have been searching for one more crucial wicket that could turn the tide in their favor.
Australia’s innings started on a promising note, but the team failed to capitalize on the good start in the middle overs. Mitchell Marsh’s half-century seemed to put them on track for a significant score, but after a 72-run stand with Steve Smith and a 52-run partnership with Marnus Labuschagne, the Australian batting order crumbled. Ravindra Jadeja dismissed Marsh on 81, and Mohammed Shami took over, claiming three wickets and helping India dismiss Australia for a modest total of 188.
