15:26 PM

Live Cricket Score, India vs Australia, 4th ODI: AUS on top

Nothing has clicked for India. Let's see how they pull back, if they do, in the remaining overs. If they can keep Australians below 350, they would take it with both hands.

15:27 PM

183 for no loss (29)

Lots to ponder upon for Kohli...His spinners have leaked runs and been good occasionally. Seamers have not been of any help. Fielders have also allowed Aussie openers to rotate the strike. As a result, Australia are 183 for no loss (29).

Warner is a stroke away from becoming the first Australian to slam a hundred in his 100th ODI. It will also be his first in India.

15:13 PM

Live Cricket Score, India vs Australia, 4th ODI: AUS on top

Australia will be feeling cheated. They have rested Glenn Maxwell when they are in a position to go all-out against the opposition.

But to be fair to them, Maxwell had his chances in the previous ODIs.

15:12 PM

Australia 148/0 (25)

Australia 148/0 (25).

Chahal was smart by altering his length a bit seeing Warner advance down the track. Warner also responded by managing to get some bat on the ball. Nonetheless, the main issue is India are yet to get a breakthrough. Both the openers have gone past 50s. Big big score on cards.

15:03 PM

AUS 136 for no loss.

Another tidy over from Akshar. Concedes only a single to end the 22nd over. AUS 136 for no loss.

With Warner looking to attack, something may happen as Akshar is creating some chances by bowling in tight lines.

15:02 PM

AUS 136/0 (21):

AUS 136/0 (21): Another expensive over. Warner started by taking on Chahal from the first ball. He smashed a biggie towards deep mid wicket and then rotated the strike. He is certainly looking to score on every single ball. Australia eyeing 350, and do not want to leave it for too late and then falter like they did in Indore.

Chahal bore the brunt of after a decent 20th over from Akshar. Is Kedar Jadhav gonna be the next change in bowling?

14:55 PM

123 for no loss (19)

Australia 123 for no loss (19). Warner is outscoring Finch at the moment. But, it doesn't mean Finch is struggling. Both the batsmen are comfortable, whereas Kohli and co. are trying hard to curb the runs and look for wickets. Struggling in both ends, India.

Chahal finally comes into the attack...

14:36 PM

96 for no loss

Australia 96 for no loss at the end of 15 overs. India under pressure. They are conceding boundaries at will and the openers are settled and looking threatening. Where is Chahal? Bring him on with some close-in fielders, maybe?

Meanwhile, Warner gets 50 on his 100th ODI. Bhogle says, "Australia look a different side when he gets going," I second him.

14:26 PM

Some loosoners, rusty fielding and good shots from the batters have been the story of the innings so far. India need to buckle up...

Scintillating shots being played here by Warner and Finch. The backfoot drive from Finch, off Hardik Pandya, is the shot of the day so far. Runs coming thick and fast here for Australia.

Meanwhile, India have shifted to Akshar and Pandya from both ends. AUS 73/0 (12)

14:16 PM

AUS 63//0 (10)

Three fours to end the tenth over. Brilliant start this by Aussie openers. The ball is coming onto the bat, the duo are timing their strokes well by using the pace of Shami, Umesh. Indian fielders have looked a bit rusty so far. AUS 63//0 (10)

A change from Virat Kohli, maybe? Who will he fall upon? Pandya or Chahal?

AUS 29/0 (5)

13:49 PM

29 for no loss (4).

10 coming off Umesh's over. He is looknig a bit off colours and can happen to anyone playing his first game of the series. Nonetheless, they cannot afford to give easy runs to Finch-Warner. A confident start this by AUS. They are 29 for no loss (4).

13:45 PM

AUS 19/0 (3)

Live Cricket Score, India vs Australia, 4th ODI: AUS on top

As Harsha Bhogle said, "one very good boundary and one streaky one" to end the third over. Warner has good a start and moving around a bit inside the crease to curb the little swing on offer.

Umesh and Shami have started well too after playing since long gap. They would still need few early wickets to attain the momentum.

13:35 PM

Note:

AUS 5/0 (1): Shami starts well. He conceded one boundary, but ran in well and completed an over after coming back from a long layoff. He was on the money against Warner.

Virat Kohli:

Virat Kohli: It is much more dry than the last season of IPL (2016). It has to do with leveling the outfield. The par score has come down to 143 from 190. The wicket tends to settle down under lights. Every game is motivation for us. We want to grab every opportunity. It is difficult to create good habits and even more difficult to follow those habits. We have given some guys rest: Kuldeep, Bhuvi and Bumrah are not playing. Umesh, Shami and Axar come into the side
