India vs Australia 1st ODI Highlights: KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja's unbeaten 108-run stand off 123 balls took India over the line after Mitchell Starc got them into a bit of a tricky situation chasing 189. India had lost Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav within the first 11 overs. Captain Hardik Pandya and Rahul then steadied the Indian chase and got the hosts back on top. Australia then got a bit of an opening with the wicket of Pandya but that was as far as they went with Rahul and Jadeja then shutting up shop. Rahul ended the match unbeaten on 75 off 91 balls while Jadeja hit the winning runs and reached 45 off 69. Australia's innings started with a lot of promise but burned out in the middle overs. Australia looked set for a big score when Mitchell Marsh accelerated after scoring his half century. He first put up a 72-run stand off 63 balls with Steve Smith and then a 52-run stand off 43 balls with Marnus Labuschagne. Marsh had scored 41 runs in the latter stand and was on 81 off 65 balls when he fell to Ravindra Jadeja. Mohammed Shami took over after that, getting the wickets of Josh Inglis, Cameron Green and Marcus Stoinis as the Australian batting order fell from 169/4 in the 28th over to being 188 all out in the 36th....Read More

IND vs AUS Live: India beat Australia by 5 wickets

Jadeja ends it with a four. Starc goes too full, Jadeja muscles it through midwicket for four and that ends the chase. Rahul unbeaten on 75 off 91, Jadeja on 45 off 69. The day started with some fireworks from Mitch Marsh but that only had all of us fooled, this pitch was not easy to bat on and provide a lot of help off the seam for the fast bowlers. But Jadeja and Rahul just took the pace of the game all the way down and did it with almost no risks. India take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series and the second ODI will now be played on Sunday in Visakhapatnam.

Mar 17, 2023 8:23 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: Bizarre overthrow 

Rahul goes to the non-striker's end, Jadeja makes his ground as Labuschagne runs towards the stumps with the ball in his hands. Then Labuschagne turns around all of a sudden and throws at the stumps. Jadeja had started walking out of the crease, the ball missed the stumps and rolled along, prompting the batters to run one more. But that also means that if the ball had hit the stumps, Jadeja was gone for all money. Would have been one of the most bizarre run outs of Jadeja's career but for now, it is just a bizarre overthrow. 

Mar 17, 2023 8:17 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: SIX! Rahul sends it to the stands

Slog sweep off the fourth ball of the 36th bowled by Zampa and the ball goes into the crowd that is bouncing and chanting Rahul's name now. The Wankhede Stadium has found its voice.

Green goes short of length outside off, Rahul rocks back and smashes it behind point.

Mar 17, 2023 8:09 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: India chugging along nicely

Mar 17, 2023 8:00 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: Partnership crosses 50!

India are 137/5 off 33 overs, need 51 to win off 102 balls. Partnership between these two is on 57 off 84, now the fact that Australia will have Axar Patel to deal with will be hanging heavy on their heads. 

Mar 17, 2023 7:56 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: FOUR! Shot from Jadeja! 

Short of a length from Stoinis, Jadeja plays a checked cut between cover and point. India are 131/5, need 59 to win off 110 balls.

Mar 17, 2023 7:50 PM IST


Second ball of the 31st over, Rahul ends up getting an outside edge off Cameron Green and it is out of reach for Steve Smith at first slip. Starc gives it his everything and stops it from reaching the boundary though.

Mar 17, 2023 7:43 PM IST

Mar 17, 2023 7:30 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: India 108/5 in 27 overs

Rahul on on 34 off 54 balls, Jadeja on 16 off 29 balls. A lot of calm and quiet in this stand, possibly because this is pretty much it for India. A wicket here can lead to a flurry.  

Mar 17, 2023 7:27 PM IST


A full delivery by Starc, on the pads. Jadeja clips it away and there is no deep mid-wicket. It goes past the infield and into the boundary for a four!

Mar 17, 2023 7:18 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: FOUR! 

Zampa goes full on the leg side, Jadeja helps it along with a glance and India are now two runs away from reaching 100. 

Mar 17, 2023 7:17 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: India 94/5 in 24 overs

Rahul on 31 off 51, Jadeja on 9 off 15. India seem to be content to play the waiting game, just knocking away the runs nonchalantly almost, which is all they need to do really. 

Mar 17, 2023 7:01 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: OUT! That's that for Pandya!

Bouncer from Stoinis, Pandya taken by surprise and goes for the pull shot. He is caught at deep backward square leg. Partnership broken and Australia are back in it.

Partnership into the 40s now and Australia's chances are slipping away steadily. A couple of quiet overs but what Australia need now are wickets.  

Mar 17, 2023 6:43 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: SIX! Slapped away by Pandya!

Second ball of the 17th, sent in wit a bit of width and Pandya slashes at it hard. It goes all the way over the boundary for a maximum. India 77/4 in 16.2 overs.

Mar 17, 2023 6:39 PM IST


That is a rare sight, a complete and utter misfield there from an Australian. And that too Glenn Maxwell of all people. Rahul hits it towards mid-on, it was just a matter of moving a little to his left, getting down and collecting the ball for Maxwell but it slips right underneath his fingers and runs to the boundary. India 69/4 in 15.2 overs.

Mar 17, 2023 6:37 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: India 64/4 in 15 overs

25-run stand now between Rahul and Pandya. Sun is beginning to set which means that dew could start coming into play at any moment now. Australia will be desperate to get as many wickets as they can. 

Mar 17, 2023 6:28 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: FOUR! On-drive from Pandya

Overpitched by Abbott, Pandya drives it wide of long-on. Nice expansive shot and India reach 58/4 in 14 overs. 

Mar 17, 2023 6:24 PM IST

Late cut from Rahul off Cameron Green and it beats deep third. Brilliant shot from Rahul there. India cross 50. 

Mar 17, 2023 6:13 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: FOUR! Pandya off his first ball

Starc pitches it up looking for the swing, doesn't get any and Pandya puts it  away to the boundary. India 43/4 in 10.3 overs.

Mar 17, 2023 6:11 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: GONE! What a catch by Labuschagne!

Gill was living a charmed life and it needed something special to get him out. Well that is special all right from Labuschagne. Gill drives on the up well away from his body, Labuschagne dives to his left and takes the catch with both hands. That is sharp work from Labuschange but one has to ask if it was wise for Gill to go for that shot considering this was going to be Starc's last over of the spell.

Gill c Labuschagne b Starc 20 (31), India 39/4 in 10.2 overs

Mar 17, 2023 6:08 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: FOUR! 

India 39/3 in 10 overs. Slashed hard by Rahul and the ball races to the boundary off the last ball of the 10th. 

Mar 17, 2023 6:03 PM IST


Scrambled seam at a length from Starc, Gill pushes at it and the outside edge flies right through the vacant third slip area for four. What a charmed life Gill has lived today. India 33/3 in 9 overs. 

Mar 17, 2023 5:54 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: Rahul needing some help

The physio is out for him. Rahul seems to be suffering from a stiff neck. A bit of a delay in proceedings. India are 27/3 in 7 overs. 

Mar 17, 2023 5:49 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: FOUR! Hat-trick ball put away by Rahul

Starc returns for the seventh, first ball of the over is a hat-trick ball, he looks for a swing, doesn't get too much and it ends up being a juicy half volley that Rahul puts away expertly for four. India 24/3 in 6.1 overs. 

Mar 17, 2023 5:47 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: Gill reverses an LBW call!

Loud appeal from the Australians off the last ball of the sixth over bowled by Sean Abbott and the umpire raises his finger. But Gill reviews straightaway, no bat on the ultraedge though so he is safe only if it misses the stumps. As it turns out, it did and the Wankhede roars. 

Mar 17, 2023 5:41 PM IST


Australia appeal, umpire shakes his head this time and Smith calls for DRS. This looked very good indeed. The ball beat SKY on the inside edge and reviews show three reds. Decision reversed and that's it for SKY. Starc will be on a hat-trick next time he bowls and he is on fire.

Suryakumar lbw b Starc 0 (1), India 16/3 in 5 overs

Mar 17, 2023 5:38 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: OUT! It's Starc and it's Kohli!

Oh he is gone! Kohli doesn't even care to consider taking the DRS, he is walking straightaway. Australia seem to be making a game of this. 

Kohli lbw b Starc 4 (9), India 16/2 in 4.5 overs

Mar 17, 2023 5:34 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: FOUR! Kohli off the mark

Classic Kohli on drive, sumptuously executed and it races away to the boundary. That is just wonderful to watch. 

Mar 17, 2023 5:30 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: FOUR! Salt and chilli on wounds for Australia

Starc overpitches, Gill brings out the picture perfect cover drive and that races to the boundary. 

Mar 17, 2023 5:29 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: DROPPED! Gill gets a lifeline

Unplayable from Starc, Gill squared up but the inswinger at a high pace, takes the edge, Inglis dives but it doesn't stick to his gloves. That is major let off.

Mar 17, 2023 5:24 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: GONE! Early wicket, Ishan Kishan falls!

Big shout from the Australians and the umpire raises his finger. Stoinis gets to pitch in the middle at a length, Kishan beaten comprehensively and struck on the pads. He goes for the review and India lose one of those as well. The crowd had started cheering for Virat Kohli even before Kishan started discussing the option of taking a DRS with Gill.  

Kishan lbw b Stoinis 3 (8), India 5/1 in 2 overs

Mar 17, 2023 5:19 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: India 2/0 after 1 over

Some movement generated by Starc in the over. Both Gill and Ishan take a single each in that over. Marcus Stoinis bowling the second. 

Mar 17, 2023 5:14 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: The players are back!

A couple of ODI double centurions opening for India in Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan. Mitchell Starc has got the ball in his hands. 

Mar 17, 2023 5:07 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: Anatomy of a collapse

Australia's tumble started with Ravindra Jadeja getting one wide and daring Mitch Marsh to keep going at it. He only got an edge to it and after that wickets fell fairly regularly. That rate just shot up after 28th. Had Australia maintained a run rate even somewhere in the region of what they had when Marsh was going big guns, they would have scored around 350 here.

Mar 17, 2023 4:49 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: Shami talks

“There is a lot of hard work involved, you have to work on your fitness. You have to work hard in the nets. When you have the rhythm and the bounce and seam position is good, you get the results. There’s always good bounce on the Mumbai wickets. I bowled in the good areas and got the rewards. I planned with Hardik to keep one slip in place. The ball was moving a bit and the idea was to keep bowling in the tight off stump channel. If everyone contributes a bit, then it will be really good for the confidence of the players. We have done well to bundle out Australia for 188 and we should be able to chase it down. I get to know from the seam as to how well I am holding the ball.”

Mar 17, 2023 4:42 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: The Mohammed Shami show

Shami was kind of all over the place in the early overs of the match but he came in the middle overs and took Australia apart. He has ended the innings with figures of 3/17. Mohammed Siraj has got figures of 3/29 while Ravindra Jadeja reorded figures of 2/46. One of those two wickets that he tookm was that of Mitchell Marsh, who seemed to be batting in a different country altogether. 

Mar 17, 2023 4:31 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: Australia 188 all out

The last wicket falls in the 36th over but Australia have not scored any runs since the end of the 33rd! The innings started with such promise but Australia have utterly fallen apart in the middle overs. They have gone from 169/4 in the 28th over to being 188 all out in the 36th. The last wicket falls with Zampa edging Siraj behind. 

Mar 17, 2023 4:21 PM IST


Oh sensational! Abbot pushes at a wide one from Siraj, upright seam, outside edge and Gill dives to his right. Australia have crumbled. 

Abbott c Shubman Gill b Mohammed Siraj 0 (7), Australia 188/9 in 33.4 overs

Mar 17, 2023 4:16 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: GONE! It's Maxwell!

The Australian innings is drawing to an early close here. Maxwell tries to hit Jadeja over mid-on, ends up hitting straight to the fielder there. Pandya makes no mistake with the catch. 

Maxwell c Pandya b Jadeja 8 (10), Australia 184/8 in 32.2 overs

Mar 17, 2023 4:10 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: OUT! Gill holds on this time!

There used to be second-innings Shami and even a death-overs Shami, now cue middle-overs Shami. Australian batters just unable to deal with the pacer. Stoinis edges it to first slip and this time Gill does pretty well to take the catch to his left. 

Stoinis c Shubman Gill b Mohammed Shami 5 (8), Australia 184/7 in 31.3 overs

Mar 17, 2023 4:08 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: FOUR! Maxwell puts one away

Short of a length from Kuldeep, Maxwell goes back and pulls it to the deep square leg rope.

Mar 17, 2023 4:04 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: Australia 174/6 in 30 overs

Maxwell is on three off four, Stoinis on nought off three. Kuldeep has been brought back. Two very aggressive batters in the middle for Australia, regulars in the IPL but they have to somehow stay in the middle for 20 full overs now. A veryiInteresting situation at the moment. 

Mar 17, 2023 4:01 PM IST

IND vs AUS Live: DROPPED! Stoinis given a second life

Unlike the last one that he had dropped, Gill has some explaining to do this time. Stoinis pushes at a length ball from Shami, gets an outside edge and it goes to Gill's right at first slip. He had got both hands to it and should have taken that, would have beem two in two for Shami and the very dangerous Stoinis would have been back in the hut.
