Rohit Sharma has reached his half-century. India are playing Australia in the second One-Day International (ODI) of the tri-series at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. India had lost Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane early and then Virat Kohli also fell cheaply. But, Rohit has bated extremely well.

There are a couple of shots that have stood out for Rohit today. He had earlier lofted Pat Cummins down the ground for a six. And then, later in the innings, he pulled Mitchell Starc over fine-leg for a six. That was a very well controlled shot. With the wickets falling, Rohit has bated very well and kept India together. he got the milestone with a six as he danced down the track to James Faulkner and dispatched it for a six over long-on. India are 110 for three. Suresh Raina and Rohit have put up more than fifty.

Earlier, MS Dhoni had won the toss and elected to bat first. The only change in the Australian team was that Gurinder Sandhu has walked in place of Xavier Doherty. Sandhu is the first man of Indian origin to play for Australia. India did not field Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja. Akshar Patel is in there for Jadeja.
