Rahul is on seven off 14, Kohli on 17 off 36. The conditions are as conducive to batting at the moment as how safe it would be to breath under water. The required rate is 4.32 and the current rate os 2.7 but India won't care about that one bit. Rahul and Kohli put up a mammoth partnership against Pakistan not too long ago and India would want something similar from them today.

Oct 8, 2023 1:37 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: KOHLI DROPPED!!

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Is this the stroke of luck India needed? A simple catch has been put down and Virat Kohli, of all batters, has been given a second life. Third ball of the eighth by Hazlewood, it was short and seemed to hurry Kohli for pace as he went for the pull. Top edge pops up, Carey and Marsh going for it from oppoosite directions, Carey seems to pull out as Marsh is getting there first but the latter seems put off my the Australian wicketkeeper. He reaches there but his hands are anywhere but in the right position, it is spilled and Kohli survives. The entirety of the Chepauk stadium, and possibly the city, the state and the country it is located in, heaves a giant collective sigh of relief.

Oct 8, 2023 1:30 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: FOUR! Shot from Kohli

Oct 8, 2023 1:12 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: OUT! ANOTHER DUCK!

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Jeepers creepers India's top three have crumbed for nothing. All of a sudden, that target looks like a mountain. Shreyas Iyer hits the last ball of the second over straight into the hands of Warner at short cover. Horrendous shot and India are three down with none of their batters registering a score. Kohli is on 0 off 2 at the other end and the only runs that have come are from a wide and a bye.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: OUT! NOW ROHIT GONE FOR A DUCK

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Hazlewood raps Rohit on the pads third ball of the second. Big appeal for LBW and the umpire raises his finger! Rohit review but there is no edge involved. Stumps is "umpire's call", India in a soup early in this chase!

Rohit lbw b Hazlewood 0 (6), India 2/2 in 1.3 overs

Oct 8, 2023 1:07 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: India 2/1 in 1 over

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: This is almot exactly what Australia would have been hoping for when starting this defence. But now, they know they need a wicket pronto as it is now Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in the middle.

Oct 8, 2023 1:01 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: GONE! GOLDEN DUCK FOR KISHAN!

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: And that too, on his World Cup debut. Yikes! Full outside off from Starc, swinging away. Kishan throws his hands at it, edge and first slip. Ishan Kishan got an unexpected chance to open the innings here and this would have been a worst case scenario as far as his assesments for how the day would go was concerned.

Kishan c Green b Starc 0 (1), India 2/1 in 0.4 overs

Oct 8, 2023 12:57 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: The players walk out

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Right then, here is Rohit Sharma and his opening partner for this game Ishan Kishan. Mitchell Starc to start the bowling for Australia. This is a challenging surface and so Australia know that they are still very much in it.

Oct 8, 2023 12:28 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Australia 199 all out in 49.3 overs

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: India need 200 to win. It all started with Bumrah dismissing Marsh in the third over, and then restarted with Kuldeep felling Warner. India were on the money in every way. While it was always known that their bowling is almost air tight, their fielding was under the scanner a little in the run up to this tournament. But they didn't put a foot wrong on that front. Their boundary riders ran around and stopped the Australians from getting any boundaries and not arguably a single catch was dropped.

Oct 8, 2023 12:27 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: FOUR!

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Siraj bowling the last over, the second ball in is is crunched right back where the ball came from along the ground. Starc has got to 28 in 34, which now makes him their third highest scorer after Warner and Smith.

Oct 8, 2023 12:25 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: OUT!

Oct 8, 2023 12:20 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Into the last 2 overs

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Australia are 188/8. Well this hasn't gone to plan at all for Australia, unless they feel their spinners can do as much damage as Ashwin, Kuldeep and Jadeja. Hardik Pandya to bowl the 49th.

Oct 8, 2023 12:08 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: SIX!

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Shot of the day and it has come from the bat of Mitchell Starc. Bumrah goes a little short and Starc pulls it Rohit Sharma style into the crowd.

Oct 8, 2023 11:59 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Spinning at right angles

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Australia 168/8 in 44 overs. Another maiden, this time for Jadeja. The second last ball is edged to the keeper's body off Zampa's bat. It ricochets and bursts up, Rohit jumps at first slip to collect it, gets a finger on it but it was just too high for him to get any control. Then the last delivery turns and bounces outside off and Rahul does well to react to it and take it.

Oct 8, 2023 11:55 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: OUT!

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Hit down the ground and held at long-on. Cummins was looking to clear that fielder, he ends up putting it down his throat.

Cummins c Iyer b Bumrah 15 (24), India 165/8 42.2 overs

Oct 8, 2023 11:50 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Australia 164/7 in 42 overs

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Cummins on 15 off 23, Starc on 5 off 12. Nothing working for Australia throughout this innings and so seeing the last ball of the 42nd going away for four leg byes would have been nice for them.

Oct 8, 2023 11:42 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: EDGED AND FOUR!

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: That is almost magical luck for Cummins. The last ball of that over takes the outside edge and flies between keeper and first slip to the boundary right behind them. Australia are 156/7 in 40 overs and Jasprit Bumrah to bowl the first over of the last powerplay.

Oct 8, 2023 11:40 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: SIX! Cummins with a big one at last

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Hello there, Cummins gets under the ball, pushes his front leg out of the way and deposits it over cow corner. That is the first six of the day.

Oct 8, 2023 11:28 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: OUT! Now Ashwin gets one

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: India are officially into Australia's tail. Green looking to cut the second delivery of the 37th from Ashwin that is short and wide. He manages to do that... straight to Hardik Pandya at backward point.

Green c Pandya b Ashwin 8 (20), Australia 140/7 in 36.2 overs

Oct 8, 2023 11:26 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: OUT! Maxwell cleaned up

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Maxwell's leg stump is gone. He tries to go for a big mow off side, swings it at with all he has gone and misses it completely. Kuldeep got a lot of revs on it and spun sharply to take the leg stump.

Maxwell b Kuldeep Yadav 15 (25), Australia 140/6 in 35.5 overs

Oct 8, 2023 11:25 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Australia 138/5 in 35 overs

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Maxwell on 14 off 22, Green on 7 off 16. These are not the kind of strike rates that you associate with these batters but what would be frustrating these two even more would be the fact that they are finding it difficult to rotate strike.

Oct 8, 2023 10:56 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: GONE! Jadeja turning it on

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: The CSK hero is now doing it in blue at the Chepauk. Slow ball turning towards leg, Carey looking to defend and it hits the pads. The umpire raises his finger, Carey decides against taking the only review that Australia have left.

Carey lbw b Jadeja 0 (2), Australia 119/5 in 29.4 overs

Oct 8, 2023 10:50 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: OUT! Now Jadeja gets Labuschagne!

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Labuschagne tries a sweep shot against Jadeja off the second ball of the 30th, Rahul takes the catch standing up and India celebrate. The umpire gives it. Labuschagne takes a few seconds before taking the review. That itself is never a good sign and replays show that he had got a feather of an edge.

Labuschagne c Rahul b Jadeja 27 (41), Australia 119/4 in 29.2 overs

Oct 8, 2023 10:47 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Boundaries have disappeared

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: And the Indian fielders should be given credit for a large part. Labuschagne tries a scoop shot off the last ball of the 29th over, looks like it would dribble to the boundary behind him and the keeper but Ishan Kishan comes storming in from fine leg and saves it at the rope. Just two runs off it. That makes it one boundary in the last 14 overs for Australia. Australia are 118/3 in 29 overs.

Oct 8, 2023 10:40 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: BOWLED HIM! JADEJA GETS SMITH!

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Oh well what do you about tha? Well, in Smith's case, he can only smile ruefully and look at the spot where the ball pitched before ripping apart the trajectory it seemed to be going in and clipping off stump. Angled in, it looked like the ball might be going towards the leg side and Smith plays accordingly. But it just rips past his defence off the pitch and takes the top of off. First ball after a lengthy break and Jadeja strikes.

Smith b Jadeja 46 (71), Australia 110/3 in 27.1 overs

Oct 8, 2023 10:38 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: The match thus far

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Bit of a prolonged drinks break. It has been all about survival for Australia thus far. Mitch Marsh fell for a six-ball duck early on and after that a 69-run stand in 85 balls between Warner and Smith helped steady the innings. Warner soon fell to Kuldeep and since then, Smith has been soldiering on with Labuschagne. Australia are 110/2 in 27 overs, Smith on 46 off 70, Labuschange 22 in 34.

Oct 8, 2023 10:34 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Some good fielding from India

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Rahul tells Kuldeep from behind the stump that Labuschagne is getting frustrated just after Ishan Kishan stops a scoop shot at fine leg quite brilliantly. Almost on cue, Labuschange punches the next ball towards cover where Hardik Pandya makes an excellent stop to keep it down to a single.

Oct 8, 2023 10:25 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: 25 overs done

Australia are 102/2. We have reached the halfway mark of the innings. Kohli and Rohit having a conversation with Jadeja before he bowls the 26th. The partnership is on 28 off 51 and it has been 33 balls since the last boundary.
