The Australian media has claimed that two extraordinary results in matches two and three of the one-day series between India and Australia has brought the one-day cricket format alive with a bang.


According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the promotion of the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand has already begun although with the tournament so far off on the horizon.

The dramatic events in Jaipur and now Mohali are the advertising the administrators behind the next World Cup desperately need, the report said.

Australia were stung when India chased down 360, the second-highest chase in ODI history, to square the series but thanks to a staggering exhibition of big hitting from James Faulkner (64 from 29 balls) produced their own miraculous escape job to nudge back ahead 2-1 on Saturday, the report added.

With three more wins in the final four games, they would return to the top of the world rankings, the report further said.
