India will be facing the Australian team in the second ODI tomorrow at Rajkot. The visitors have already taken a lead of 1-0 as they have won the first ODI pretty comfortably. It was quite surprising to see that the Indian bowlers were not able to take even a single wicket.
Batting first, team India managed to put up a total of 255 on the scoreboard and gave the target of 256 to the visitors which they managed to score in the 38th over without losing a single wicket. Both the Australian openers David Warner and Aaron Finch scored centuries.
Many times, David Warner and Aaron Finch have proved that they are among the best opening pairs of the present times and after this match, the cricket fans are talking about them opening the innings for Australia in the 2023 World Cup which will be played in India.
When David Warner was asked about it, he gave a funny reply and said that they both need to talk to their wives first, the reason being that they both will be 36-37 at that time.
He further adds that he already has three kids and hopefully the third one is the last one. However, Warner also says that they will take one step at a time and presently, their focus is on the Rajkot match only.
