10:28 PM IST, Local Time | Well that's all she wrote for today folks! India with a dominant performance and a bag full of records. The journey to the World Cup goes on with the 3rd and final ODI in this series in a couple of days time. Until then.. 

This is Anirudh Modi, signing off along with my co-commentators Ninaad Dixit, Arijit Kundu, Hitesh Peddurwar and our scorer/analyst Zeeshan Naiyer! See you on the next one! 
Shreyas Iyer (Player of the Match): " Yeah, it was a roller coaster ride, I am feeling comfortable with the body. I was feeling lonely and my friends, my teammates, and family helped me.

Really excited to be back. I was watching the matches on the TV and felt to be back on the ground and playing the games. I feel fortunate. The pain and niggles kept on coming but I didn't let my chips down. I am glad that I was able to execute my plans perfectly today.

When I went out to bat, I just wanted to bat my way, I was playing well in the nets, and I just wanted to give some time out in the middle. I am happy to bat anywhere, I am flexible. Virat Kohli on the greats,  has sealed the number 3 position so no chance of stealing it from him. I need to learn from him."
KL Rahul (India Captain): "When I saw the wicket in the morning, I didn't think it will spin that much but having quality finger spinners in your team does help you. Defending 400 also gives you a bit of confidence. First over where the ball spun, it turned the game.

[Deciding a playing XI] Its not really our decision to make as players. Its our coach and Rohit when he comes back. Our roles are very clear. Whoever gets picked in the XI has a job to do for his country and everyone looks at it that way and if you are not playing in the XI then you just keep working hard and wish well for the other guys and wish that your team keeps winning. Sitting out can be hard after scoring a lot of runs but that's how the sport goes and everyone has gone through that. It will always be that way so you just deal with it and try to work hard, keep getting better and wait for your opportunities.

I won't say its a big worry. We dropped a couple of catches today but when you are traveling every second day and fielding under lights can be difficult sometimes. In conditions like Mohali where the conditions are humid, the guys who are playing continuously might face a challenge. The coaches are doing a great job in managing bodies and keeping the guys as physically fit and fresh as possible. Fielding is directly related to how fresh you are and how physically fit you are and that is something that we as a group really work hard towards and sometimes these errors happen.

Nothing is discussed as of now but the guys coming in from the break would definitely want to get some game time. Just getting in that zone, scoring runs or bowling some overs is really important. Physical challenge is huge so getting our bodies used to. Standing on the field for 50 overs, batting and doing all those things. They will be keen to come back and some of the other guys might have to rest it out."
Game Changer of the Match: Shubman Gill
Steve Smith | Australia Captain: "Potentially seeing the wicket spin the way it did we could have chosen differently at the toss but credit to Indians they batted beautifully. Shreyas and Shubman took the game away from us and then KL and Surya did what we knew they could do. 

Do they? I've seen games here before and it looks good for chasing and that was our theory. The wicket got a bit sticky and started turning, but 400 was always a big target to chase down. We have lost a quite a few in South Africa and now here but the World Cup is about peaking at the right time. We have a few improvements to make and we hopefully turn things around in the next game. 

We have a few days before the next game but we always want to improve and turn things around and India are always a tough side to beat, let's hope we win the next one."
10:16 PM IST, Local Time | Time for the post match presentation..
Shubman Gill: "Yeah it feels good. We are satisfied as a team. We have the momentum at the right time. It depends on the situation, there is definitely some confidence that I can cover up later, I have that confidence because I am scoring at the moment. Yeah, definitely with the way KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav played, they kept the momentum going. 400 on any ground is tough to chase, and the bowlers did the task. I think the six I hit to Cameron Green was really special for me."
10:03 PM IST, Local Time | A comprehensive victory for India today sees them seal the 3 match ODI series 2-0 with an ODI to spare! They defeat a hapless Australia side by 99 runs (DLS method) to win this rain-curtailed encounter!

Australia won the toss and elected to bowl first,
and after a couple of boundaries in the first 4 balls, Josh Hazlewood managed to remove Ruturaj Gaikwad and give Australia the start they needed. However, Shreyas Iyer and Shubman Gill had other ideas. The duo went onto stitch together a monster 200 run-stand with both batters going onto smash centuries. 

While Shreyas Iyer got going from the start, Shubman Gill bided his time before exploding and by the time Shreyas Iyer eventually fell for the score of 105 runs from 90 balls, the scoreboard read 216/2 after 30.5 overs. Shubman Gill soon followed suit as the Aussies dismissed The Prince in the 35th over with his scorecard at 104 runs from 97 balls. 

The Aussies thought they could come back in the game but the Indians were not done yet. Skipper KL Rahul played a Klassy knock to score 52 runs off 38 balls and he was well supported by Ishan Kishan with a cameo of 31 runs from 18 balls. But the backend of the innings belonged to India's very own Mr. 360 i.e., Suryakumar Yadav. 

The batter from Mumbai played a blinder of a knock to score 72 runs from just 37 balls to help India reach a total of 399/5 from their 50 overs. A record-breaking innings from India saw them register their highest total against Australia in ODIs. 

Come the chase, it was a daunting task for the Aussies with a monster target of 400 up ahead for them and things only turned worse as Prasidh Krishna on his comeback dismissed Short and Smith off consecutive deliveries in the second over to put the men in Yellow on the backfoot. 

David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne stabilized the innings and were going well until the rain decided to interrupt and stop proceedings for an hour. Post the rain break, the target was revised to 317 from 33 overs via the DLS method. 

The highlight of the chase was David Warner's right handed batting to counter the threat of Ravichandran Ashwin but soon after scoring his half-century the southpaw fell and thus began the Aussie collapse. Wickets started tumbling one after the other as the duo of Ashwin-Jadeja rolled back the years to bamboozle the Aussie batters. 

Ashwin and Jadeja's exploits left the Aussies reeling at 140/8 in the 21st over and staring down a even bigger margin of defeat, but Abbott and Hazelwood's explosive partnership coupled with India's poor fielding at the end only delayed the inevitable. 

The run-rate was always high for the Aussies to have any real chance after the collapse they had. Ashwin was the pick of the bowlers for India with his figures of 3/41 from 7 overs while Jaddu also picked up 3/42 and Krishna chipped in with a couple of wickets. 

A confidence damaging defeat for Australia and they will be disappointed with the way things turned out today. India have sealed the series victory but they will still want to whitewash the Aussies ahead of the World Cup!
28.2 R Jadeja to Abbott
W BOWLED HIM! Jadeja gets the wicket he desired! Sean Abbott departs after an entertaining knock! This was pitched closer to the good length spot hitting and pitched outside the leg stump. The ball turns square pushing Abbott back in the crease. He fails to get the bat close to the ball and gets his furniture disturbed. Australia lose 5 ODIs on the trot right before the World cup.
28.1 R Jadeja to Abbott
0 Around the wicket. Back of a length with sharp turn from the middle stump, Abbott rocks back and cuts, finds backward point.

Mohammed Shami
Spencer Johnson is the new batter out in the middle.
27.6 M Shami to J Hazlewood
W BOWLED HIM!! Shami cleans Josh Hazlewood up. Peach of a delivery taking the middle stump out of the ground. 121.2 kph. A good length delivery from around the stumps. Bowls an off-cutter and pitches on the middle stump angling it back. Hazlewood moves in the on side to make some room, makes the stumps visible, and watches his middle peg fly out of the surface.
27.5 M Shami to Abbott
1 Full and wide outside the off-stump line, Abbott drives it towards covers.
27.4 M Shami to Abbott
2 Full and outside the off stump, driven on the front foot to the right of deep cover. 2 more runs added to the total.
