Mahendra Singh Dhoni is searching for options as his spinners have been taken for runs. Amit Mishra, Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin started well, but then Shane Watson and George Bailey got into the attack and accelerated the ship. In 32 overs, Australia are 188 for two. Watson is on 79, while Bailey is batting on 72.

After Watson, even Bailey had reached his fifty and is accelerating. He is waiting for the ball and smashing it around the ground. The scoring rate has gone up by a significant figure. Dhoni is rotating his spinners a touch and even Virat Kohli was given one over.

Bailey is in supreme form. He rocks back and hoicks Mishra over square-leg for maximum. There is no stopping him this in series.
