So, India go 1-0 up in the three-match ODI series thanks to an all-round show by the Indian players. But Australia can bounce back as we saw in the Test series. Will Australia make a comeback in the second match to level the series 1-1 and take the fate of the series in the final ODI? Join us for the coverage of the second ODI on Sunday. Goodbye for now!
Ravindra Jadeja | Player of the Match: I’m playing ODI after 8 months so was just looking to adjust as soon as possible. Luckily did well with the ball, got three wickets and was looking to build a partnership with the bat. Having played Test cricket, line and length was there but you have to alter you lengths and pace. I was looking to build a partnership today of about 70-80 runs, and that happened.
Hardik Pandya | India captain: We were under pressure both the times. We kept our composure and found ways to come out of those situations. Once we got the momentum, we were quite on top of the game. I am really proud of the way we caught today. We had to take our chances. Talking about Jaddu, he did what he's capable of. Coming after a break in ODI cricket, the way he finished as well, we needed a partnership. I was enjoying my bowling. Overall, a very good victory.
Steve Smith | Australia captain: We weren't expecting this at the Wankhede, usually pretty good scores. India bowled really well. We left a few out there. If we had got over 250, it would have been interesting the way the ball was swinging and seaming. KL and Jaddu's partnership was really good when they were under pressure. We started pretty well. Mitch played really nicely and took the game on early and got a few away and kept going. We lost too many wickets in the middle. We were always one partnership from them beating us - Jadeja and Rahul showed how to do it. It was offering a fair bit for the seamers at times. The ball swung. We needed a few more runs. Credit to India.
KL Rahul: Saw three wickets fall down early, Starc was swinging the ball well and when he brings the ball back in, he is a dangerous bowler. Just tried to play normal cricketing shots. Got a few boundaries away and that settled my nerves. I batted with Shubman, Hardik, and Jadeja. The talk was that there’s help on the wicket but we did not want to get into our shell and play out a certain bowler. We wanted to be positive and put the loose balls away. If we are good with out footwork, we could do well and it was fun batting with Jadeja. The minute the left-hander walked in, I got a few loose ball. That happens to the best of bowlers. The left-hander walking in and that worked for us. Jaddu batted beautifully and he runs hard between the wickets. He is in great form and he knows what to do in those situations. When we started off, I didn’t think it will help the bowlers so much, there would be spongy bounce. Once Shami came in for his second spell, he bowled well and picked up wickets. The bowlers did well in the middle overs. When there’s bounce, I like keeping wickets. It is a bit of a challenge when it is slow and low, it is challenging physically. The ball was moving around and I enjoy playing here at the Wankhede.

But it fast bowling, which is still hurting India. Marcus Stoinis bowls a bouncer at Hardik Pandya and the Indian captain is forced into a pull shot and is caught in the deep.
