Kuldeep Yadav was star of the day, picking up three wickets in the game. Jasprit Bumrah was once again accurate and he went on to add two more scalps in his overall wicket tally.

Earlier, Kohli scored 116 off 120 balls as India was sent in and bowled out for 250 in the 49th over. Australia was in the chase until the last over. Australia was all out for 242 in 49.2 overs. The third match is in Ranchi on Friday.
