In Mumbai, India first stopped Australia in 35.4 overs and then achieved the target in 39.5 overs.
Sachin’s interesting advice
The second ODI ended even earlier. India was also all out for 117 runs in 26 overs by Australia. After this, Australia won the match by 10 wickets in 11 overs. Sachin gave interesting advice to save ODI cricket. He talked about dividing some 100-over matches into four parts of 25-25 overs each. Means ODI should also start playing as mini test and instead of 20 there will be only 10 wickets.
