And now the team is looking to level the five-ODI series after losing the opener to India on Sunday despite a flying start. Even though the Aussies struggled against India's spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, D/L method played a more important role in changing the odds in India's favour.
Australia have a 100 per cent record, and fond memories at Eden.
Injury and an interrupted lead-up will be no excuse for Australia as they attempt to level the one-day global series with India, says skipper Steve Smith.
Smith also praised Hardik Pandya (83 off 66 balls) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (79 off 88 balls), who shared a rearguard 118-run stand for the sixth wicket to lift India to the challenging score after losing half of the side for 84 runs at one stage. Virat Kohli, on the other hand, would be hoping for an improved performance from his top order. In his last 10 global matches, Dhoni has scored 298 runs that includes inspiring knocks such as 54 against West Indies, 45*, 67* and 49* against Sri Lanka and 79 against Australia.

Congolese soldiers responded with gunfire when some refugees hurled stones, said refugee Aline Nduwarugira. The clashes broke out when refugees were opposed to repatriation to Burundi, Kasereka said.
Having drawn the two-Test series in Bangladesh, Smith's captaincy is likely to be tested to the limit with Australia trailing 0-1 in the five-ODI series against India.
Where is the India vs Australia 2nd ODI match?
The live broadcast of the second ODI between India and Australia match will start at 13:30 PM IST (8:00 AM GMT). India set 281 as a target for Australia, which proved to be too much for the visitors. As India languished at 87/5, former Australia captain Michael Clarke opined this was a great opportunity for the men in Baggy Green to seize the initiative and they could consider this as an opportunity lost. Framed differently the question still sounded like "How do you solve a problem like Maria?' Maybe the connection was made because the immortal lines from the Hollywood musical 'The Sound of Music" also mention 'being unpredictable as weather'. India was reeling at 87 for 5 when Hardik Pandya joined MS Dhoni to stitch together a partnership that would take India to safety.
