India beat Australia by 36 runs to level series


Mohammed Shami claimed three wickets while Navdeep Saini, Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja picked two each as India beat Australia by 36 runs to level the three-match series 1-1 in the second ODI encounter at Rajkot.

Steve Smith was the top-scorer with 98 but that was not enough for the visitors.

Earlier, Shikhar Dhawan’s sublime 96-run knock and impactful half-centuries from KL Rahul and Virat Kohli helped India post a challenging 340 for six.

India looked good for a 350+ total but they lost quick wickets after Kohli’s dismissal. It was then Lokesh Rahul, who took matters in his own hands and smashed a quickfire 80 to help India reach 340.
