Australia openers Aaron Finch and Phil Hughes began on a watchful note in the second One-Day International against India at the Sawai Mansigh Stadium at Jaipur. Australia were 46 for the loss of no wickets after 10 overs. The Indian pacers too were on target not allowing to score easy runs.
India had a chance to dismiss Aaron Finch if Yuvraj Singh had held on to a sharp catch at backward point in the ninth over by Ishant Sharma.
Sharma and Bhuvneshwar Kumar began the proceedings of the match. Kumar got a hint of swing but the batsmen were adept to see him off cautiously. The bowlers made use of some slower short balls as well to deceive the batsmen but on one occasion Finch made good use of it to pick a boundary.
Even in the previous ODI, the openers were extremely watchful scoring at a snail’s pace initially before launching an attack on the bowlers.
On a pitch which had assistance for the fast bowlers, George Bailey won the toss and chose to bat. Both teams went with the same team they played in the first ODI.
