So that ends what's been a largely one-sided clash with Australia taking a 1-0 lead. They posted a 300-plus score for the second successive game and recovered from a shaky start as they had done in Bangalore.

Chasing 307 was never going to be easy and India's top-order wobble meant they were always playing catch up. The Australians bowled with discipline and fielded with energy and the spinners finally sealed the issue on a wearing pitch.

There will be talk about India's decision at the toss but Australia were no doubt the better team overall. The series now moves to Hyderabad where the team clash in the third one-dayer on October 5.

Thank you for joining us for this one. From me, Siddhartha Vaidyanathan, and my fellow commentator Kanishkaa Balachandran it's good night and good luck.

Hogg to Dhoni, OUT, Got 'em! All over. The googly ends it all, Dhoni flashes at one outside off and the top-edge flies to short third man where Brad Hodge dived full length and completed a fine catch

Raghu says: I hope that this game and the aborted Indian innings in the 1st ODI will make the selectors realise that it is time to blood new players. The Fab 3 Sachin, Saurav and Rahul have given yeoman service to Indian cricket but it is time to make changes. The selectors should think of even sacrificing the present series in order to give young players a sustained run in the side to build
