  1. 2017
  2. 2013
  3. 2006
  4. 2003
  5. 1985

Bhuvneshwar Kumar picks up his third wicket


WICKET: Bhuvneshwar catches Kane Richardson plumb in front and the the Aussies go for the review but it is turned down. India win by 50 runs and this is Kohli and his team's eighth straight win in ODIs


SIX: Marcus Stoinis will try and keep the Aussies breathing as long as he can. Bumrah tries the yorker, ends up bowling a low full toss on the leg stump and Stoinis flicks that over the square leg fence. A few worried faces in the Indian team. Australia need 51 more off 45 balls


SIX & FIFTY: Marcus Stoinis bludgeons that over the bowler's head to bring up a well-deserved half-century. Hardik Pandya's day of leaking runs continues. This is Stoinis' first half-century in ODI cricket, he though has a century to his name


SIX: Marcus Stoinis steps out and hits Yuzvendra Chahal for a maximum straight down the ground. 65 runs needed off 57 deliveries


WICKET: Nathan Coulter-Nile departs now and its Hardik Pandya who has picked up his second wicket


BOUNDARY: Marcus Stonis sweeps that to the boundary and he is keeping Australia's hopes alive in this match still


Chahal is back in the attack, and he has been majectic with his guilde tonight. Kuldeep might have done enough to grab the headlines but it is Chahal who brought India back into the match 


BOUNDARY: Flighted outside the off stump and Stoinis hits that in the air and through the covers for his second boundary off successive deliveries. Keeping the Aussies in the hunt


BOUNDARY: Stoinis sweeps that fine and Bumrah makes a mess of it in the deep, gets a boundary


SIR JADDU TURNS SUPERMAN: Bumrah into the attack and attempts a pull shot off the short delivery and Ravindra Jadeja flies in the outfiled to catch it but the ball drops short


Chahal and Kuldeep have have spun a web around the Australians tonight.

And dare I say, the 'Men in Blue' are not missing Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. This is my pet topic but I won't get into that tonight, perhaps another article to articulate those thoughts


This is the 43rd ODI hat-trick & the 18th in the 2010s.


This is also the third hat-trick at Eden Gardens across formats: Harbhajan Singh in Tests v Australia, 2001; Kapil Dev v SL, 1991 & Kuldeep Yadav, today



This is the 3rd ODI hat-trick by an Indian!

  1. Chetan Sharma v NZ, 1987
  2. Kapil Dev v SL, 1991
  3. Kuldeep Yadav v AUS, 2017

This is the seventh ODI hat-trick against Australia and the first since Steven Finn’s hat-trick in the 2015 CWC.

This is the 3rd ODI hat-trick of 2017, after Taskin Ahmed v SL & Wanindu Hasaranga v Zimbabwe


HAT-TRICK: The Chinaman has done it for India, bowls the wrong one and Pat Cummins gets an outside edge and Dhoni completes a brilliant catch


WICKET: Kuldeep has picked up two in two here, flights that one and Ashton Agar misses it completely. It hits him bang in front of the wicket and the umpire has raised his finger.

Kuldeep Yadav is on a hat-trick


WICKET: Kuldeep Yadav produces a breakthrough, spins that big and Wade gets an inside edge and it bounces off the pitch to clip the bails. Wade is out for 2, Australia 148/6 in 32.2 overs


BOUNDARY: Hardik Pandya tries another short delivery but Stoinis stands tall and pulls that to the mid-wicket boundary. Sensible batting by the Australian all-rounder.

Australia need 105 runs off 18 overs with 5 wickets in hand


Stoinis and Wade in the middle and they will have to bat sensibly here. Both are decent batsmen and have the technical capability to chase down this target, but for that they have to ensure they are both out there in the middle beyond the 40th over.

The required run rate is 6 RPO


This was by far Smith’s slowest 50-plus score against India: -

  1. 59 (76) – SR: 77.63 – Chennai, 2017
  2. 149 (135) – SR: 110.37 – Perth, 2016
  3. 105 (93) – SR: 112.90 – Sydney, 2015
  4. 51 (29) – SR: 175.86 – Canberra, 2016


Kuldeep Yadav ‘s figures this series: 2/71 (10 overs).

Before this series, Kuldeep had never conceded more than 5.55 RPO in a match. In both matches of this series, Kuldeep has conceded more than 6 RPO


Matthew Wade is in the middle and Kohli immediately brings back Kuldeep Yadav, hoping to get his overs through quickly with two news batsmen in the middle. It's not been Kuldeep's night but he can try and bowl a few economical overs now


WICKET: Hardik Pandya has made up for the boundaries he has given away so far by picking up the prized scalp of Australian captain Steve Smith. Bowls a short delivery and Smith tries to pull that unsuccessfully and is caught in the deep by the substitute fielder Ravindra Jadeja.  Smith goes for 59, Australia 138/5 after 29.5 overs


BOUNDARY: Pandya bowls that wide and Smith goes for it, gets a thick outside edge which flies down to the boundary, a slip may be? But you can't blame Kohli, you won't see too many captain's putting a slip for a well setlled batsman this late in the innings


Yuzvendra Chahal is back in the attack and now bowling his 7th over. Virat Kohli would expect his lead spinner to get him another wicket. Stoinis is beaten all ends up against the guilde of the lanky Haryaa bowler.

He is varying his flight, pace and length. Hallmarks of a man in complete control of his craft


Kuldeep Yadav has struggled with his length throughout the innings. He has now bowled 6 overs and given away 38 runs. The biggest issue has been that he hasn't looked like he would pick up a wicket


BOUNDARY: Kuldeep flights that one a tad bit extra and pitches it up and Stoinis drives that through the covers for a boundary


India vs Australia 2017, 2nd ODI at Eden Gardens, Highlights: As It Happened

Latest Updates: India beat Australia by 50 runs to take a 2-0 lead in the series

PREVIEW IND vs AUS: India would expect their top order batsmen to make amends for a rare poor show in the series-opener and hope that the spinners continue to torment Australia when the two teams clash in the second One-Dayer, here on Thursday. The Australians are struggling against India's new spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal and the hosts would like to ensure that it doesn't get any easy as the series progresses. Yadav is proving to be a mystery for the Aussies, who have have also struggled to pick Chahal's sliders. The visitors were seen taking the help of local wrist spinners to find tricks to counter the Indian bowlers. While Kerala's KK Jiyas helped them before the Chennai ODI, two local club bowlers -- Ashutosh Shibram and Rupak Guha -- provided some practice to the Aussie batsmen, here. Chasing a revised target of 164 in 21 overs in the rain- interrupted first ODI, Aussies were 35 for four before Glenn Maxwell's power-hitting raised hopes of an unlikely win. But Chahal and Yadav went about their task meticulously to seal a 26-run win by the D/L method.
